Important Ayurvedic Herbs

Ayurveda has many important herbs, including special powerful tonics, rejuvenatives and restoratives to the immune system, much like Chinese medicine.

ALOE (Aloe vera): tonic to the liver and spleen, laxative, emmenagogue, alterative, detoxifying, excellent for Pitta.

AMALAKI (Emblica officinalis): tonic, rejuvenative, laxative, builds the blood, good for all types.

ARJUNA (Terminalia arjuna): tonic and restorative to the heart, alterative, hemostatic, promotes healing of tissues.

ASHWAGANDHA (Withania somnifera): A good tonic to the brain, reproductive system and bones, analgesic and sedative to the mind but without depressant effect, excellent for Vata.

BALA (Sida cordifolia): tonic to the lungs and reproductive system, gives strength, for Pitta and Vata. 

BLACK MUSALI (Curculigo orchiodes): tonic, stimulant, antirheumatic, good for Vata.

BIBHITAKI (Terminalia baelerica): tonic, astringent, expectorant, good for Kapha and the lungs.
