Why We Love


Punarnava, or Boerhavia diffusa, is an herb that has been used in Ayurveda for centuries. It is known for its anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties, as well as its ability to flush toxins from the body. Punarnava is also known to help rejuvenate the body and promote overall health.

In Ayurveda, Punarnava is considered a “rasayana”, meaning it helps balance the three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) in the body. It can be used to treat a wide range of ailments including urinary tract infections, joint pain, digestive issues, liver disorders and skin diseases. Additionally, it has been found to be effective in treating fever and edema.

The herb is most commonly taken as a powder or decoction but can also be taken as a tablet or capsule form. The recommended dosage varies depending on the condition being treated but generally ranges from 500mg to 2g per day for adults. It is important to consult with your healthcare provider before taking any herbal supplement as some may interact with other medications or have side effects.
