What is this herbal medicine?

MANJISHTHA (Indian Madder/Rubia cordifolia) is helpful in skin conditions like uneven pigmentation and eczema. The Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India recommends the use of the dried stem of Manjishtha in blood, skin and urogenital disorders, dysentery, piles, ulcers, inflammation, erysipelas, skin diseases and rheumatism. The roots, leaves and seeds of the herb are beneficial for amenorrhea, liver diseases and gall bladder and spleen ailments. The climbing rugose vine with reddish roots is found in the Himalayas and in hill stations across India.

Active constituents

The most important chemical constituents found in the garlic bulb are the sulphur compounds, predominantly alliin. When the garlic bulb is crushed, minced, or otherwise processed, alliin is released and interacts with the enzyme alliinase. Hydrolysis and immediate condensation of the reactive intermediate allylsulfenic acid forms allicin. One milligram of alliin is considered to be equivalent to 0.45 mg of allicin. Allicin itself is an unstable product and will undergo additional reactions to form other derivatives depending on environmental and processing conditions. These compounds work together to lower blood pressure, tone up cardiac muscles and combat dyspepsia.

Herb functions:

  • Gastrointestinal: Manjishtha is beneficial in gastrointestinal ailments like loss of appetite, dyspepsia and worm infestations.
  • Skin disorders: The herb is an effective blood detoxifier that helps in the management of skin disorders such as skin hyperpigmentation, eczema, acne, scabies and skin allergies. Studies have shown that Manjishtha extract reduces hyperproliferation of epidermal skin cells and modulates the aberrant keratinocyte-differentiating activity commonly seen in psoriasis.

  • Your email was addressed as a survey and the only link was the one I am responding to now.
    To question #1; Did I receive the medication shipment as ordered?
    The answer is yes, and I was impressed with the time in which it was delivered to my home; only 10 days!
    To question #2; did the medication meet my expectations?
    Again the answer is yes! I was also impressed with your website which explains everything about ordering outside the U.S., quality of the medication made at the India labs, number(s) to call if the shipment is held up in Customs, and the ease in placing the order. - Dave
