These tribal and local populations of Chhattisgarh particularly people around the forest area depend on leafy vegetables as a source of food diet because they connect the natural vegetation of Chhattisgarh leafy vegetable plant has high nutrition source. Leafy vegetables are rich in nutritional value, high protein per calorie, dietary fiber, vitamin C, pro-vitamin A, carotenoids, folate, manganese, and vitamin K. In Leafy vegetable plant cells, they also present secondary metabolites. These metabolites are highly present in the leaf part and it is also beneficial to treat diseases of humans also.

This was the mini-review paper introducing the many green leafy vegetables used in Chhattisgarh for treating wound healing activity.
