Herb of the Season: Chandraprabha

Chandraprabha (also called Chandraprabha Gulika and Chandraprabha Vati) is an Ayurvedic classical medicine used for the treatment of a very wide variety of diseases of kidneys, bladder, urinary tract, pancreas, bones, joints, and thyroid gland. It is also recommended in the management of diabetes, male and female reproductive issues and mental disorders.

 Chandraprabha is beneficial in difficulty in urination, kidney stones, frequent urination, urinary incontinence, benign prostatic hyperplasia, male infertility, erectile dysfunction, diabetes, dysmenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, amenorrhea, polycystic ovarian disease, anxiety, the effects of mental stress, and depression.

Chandraprabha is used as total health tonic and supplement for reducing general debility and increasing physical strength. The effects are due to the presence of shilajit and loha bhasma. It reduces fatigue and revitalizes the body. Its effects usually appear most expeditiously when it is taken with cow’s milk. Chandraprabha increases the excretion of harmful toxins like creatinine, urea and uric acid from the body. It corrects the natural functions of kidney and helps to eliminate the excess uric acid. However, it may not have effect on uric acid production, but it can reduce uric acid level by stimulating excretion of uric acid through kidneys. Chandraprabha is also useful in low backache, spinal arthritis and knee osteoarthritis. It has potent anti-inflammatory and mild analgesic characteristics. It reduces pain and inflammation in joint disorders. The name Chandraprabha (moon-glow) is given due to the effects of Chandra - the moon – as this medicine is said to be as calming and effective as the aura of moon.

It acts as Yogavahi – acts as catalyst for other herbal ingredients to deliver swift therapeutic action.
