Musta, also known as nut grass, is an important herb used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is native to India and belongs to the Cyperaceae family. Musta has a long history of use in traditional Indian medicine for its many health benefits.

Musta has been used to treat a variety of ailments including fever, burning sensation, excessive thirst, and inflammation in the lower abdominal region. It is also known to improve lactation and regulate both Pitta and Vata in the lower abdomen. Additionally, it has been used to reduce muscle fat (meda) and support healthy menstrual cycles.

Musta powder is made from the rhizomatous perennial herb which grows like a weed in fields with water resources. The powder can be taken orally or applied topically as part of an Ayurvedic treatment plan.
