Healing properties of haridra 

When commenting on what is haridra in Ayurveda, we have to begin with the medical aspect and why it is applied all over the world. Haridra‘s healing properties were described in the VI century BC in one of the main texts of Ayurveda – „Sushruta Samhita”. The roots of the plant are used in various forms. Thanks to its wide effect, it is included in the composition of nearly 80 percent of the Ayurevda  medicines, because it can balance all three doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. 

It is also very important that it cleanses the energy channels, stimulates the chakras and improves the circulation of prana – the vital energy in the body. Research-workers believe that Ayurveda people have used the herb four thousand years ago. 

Haridra is a natural and powerful antibiotic from nature with a strong antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-allergic effect. It also has a diuretic effect. The herb is useful for:

  • For cleansing of toxins, including in blood
  • For stomach upset and for gas discharge
  • To increase appetite and better digestion
