Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is one of the common health problems and a rising concern in India.

There are numerous options for diabetes care in Ayurveda such as karela juice, jamun juice, aloe vera juice, guggulu tablet, shilajit tablet, etc. You can consult your expert about the remedies and choose the right herb to control diabetes.
Hair fall: Another common health concern most of us face is hair fall and hair loss. However, knowing the exact cause of this problem is the key to treat the condition.

Hence, it is important to take care of your scalp and hair to prevent these conditions. Here is the list of common Ayurvedic hair care products.
Skin problems: Ayurvedic remedies to treat skin problems work by ensuring the right balance of the three doshas in the body namely vata, pitta and kapha. For example, imbalanced pitta dosha which is a sign of an underlying skin problem can lead to skin rashes, breakouts, acne or infection. This is why it is important to maintain a balance in the doshas and keep your skin healthy.
Stomach problems: Stress and poor eating habits lead to digestive problems such as acidity, bloating, indigestion and constipation. According to Ayurveda, high levels of ama (toxic substances formed due to improper digestion) and low pachak agni (digestive fire) can lead to digestive disorders. Also, an imbalance of pitta affects the proper functioning of gastrointestinal tract and causes high acid levels in the stomach, leading to acidity and stomach upsets. Hence, in addition to diet changes and healthy eating habits, using Ayurvedic stomach care products can help you to keep your gut healthy and prevent common digestive problems.
Sexual problems: Sexual health problems can not only affect the sexual performance but also affect the person’s mental health. According to Ayurveda, the right use of rasayana (herbs which play a role in rejuvenation) and vajikarana (herbs which act as an aphrodisiac) is important for sexual wellness and healthy life.
These remedies can help improve sexual performance, boost libido and maintain a happy sexual relationship. Here is a list of sexual wellness products you can choose from to prevent and manage sexual problems. The proper and timely use of these Ayurveda remedies can promote sexual vigour, youthfulness, physical strength and longevity.
