Bibhitaki Fruit Powder, organic, half pound

Bibhitaki is one of the three fruits in triphala and is the preferred herb for regulating kapha. This means it is used when there are kapha accumulations in the lungs, ears, sinuses, throat, liver, and urinary tract. It is astringent and therefore absorbs the excess moisture of kapha. It has some lesser known value for treating tropical conditions such as diarrhea, pulmonary eosinophilia, and allergic reactions, very likely parasitic in origin.

Hawthorn berries are a famous cardiotonic and vasodilator, but some might be surprised to see them listed on a site specializing in Ayurvedic herbs.

This herb is contraindicated where there is low blood pressure but it can be considered by those needing more support for the heart muscle.

Vidanga Fruit Powder, wildcrafted, half pound

Vidanga is used to eliminate excess vata from the lower intestines. This is extremely important since vata can become debilitating. Vidanga also strengthens agni (digestive fire) and supports detoxification. In Ayurveda, it is regarded as ascaridal, specific for large intestinal nematodes, as well as giardia. In clinical trials, tape worms were expelled in 6-24 hours. It is also a febricide. Studies indicate that it is estrogenic and mildly progestogenic. The berries are spermicidal and are being studied as a natural contraceptive. The effects on male fertility are easily reversed once stopping the use of the berries.

Use of this herb should be suspended if changes in peripheral vision are noted. It should also not be used by those trying to have children since it acts as an antifertility agent.

Ingredients: wildcrafted Embelia ribes powder.
