A staple in any Ayurvedic kitchen, Bhringraj can be consumed in multiple ways for optimal internal and external health and wellness.
Taking Bhringraj powder with water is a traditional remedy to help balance and regulate cholesterol levels, due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Due to its known hepatoprotective (liver supporting) and antioxidant properties, Bhringraj has also been purported to nourish and protect the liver cells against oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Taking Bhringraj leaves in their powdered form is reported to increase urine production due to its natural diuretic properties and can therefore helps expel urinary complications, one of its many traditional uses. Bhringraj is also beneficial in managing symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders and imbalances (such as diarrhoea), including contractions or spasms in the stomach, intestine, or urinary bladder due to its proven antispasmodic properties.
Bhringraj is also known colloquially as Kesharaj, which means “Ruler of the Hair”, as it is rich in proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants which help promote hair growth and reduce the greying of hair due to several nutrients in Bhringraj that provide deep nourishment to the hair and scalp.
According to Ayurveda, Bhringraj juice rejuvenates the skin and helps reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and frail skin. Bhringraj powder, combined with a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) is also used to soothe skin infections and allergies due to its soothing and antimicrobial properties.
