Lakshadi Guggul

Lakshadi Guggul
Lakshadi Guggul or Lakshadi Guggulu, also termed Laxadi Guggul, is an Ayurvedic medicine used to treat bone-related problems. It is a rich source of calcium which provides aid in conditions like osteoporosis. It is also known to fasten the healing process in bone fracture, low bone density, and pain in joints[1].

According to Ayurveda, Lakshadi Guggul helps in fast bone recovery after a fracture. In addition to that, it provides relief from pain due to its Vata balancing property, thereby helping manage low bone density (osteoporosis). This property also helps reduce pain caused by a bone fracture. Being rich in calcium and a fine regulator of aggravated Vata, it provides great aid in reducing the symptoms of arthritis. Its calcium-building property aids in managing the overall calcium requirement of the body, thereby helping reduce the symptoms of fatigue or weakness.

You can take 1-2 tablets of Lakshadi Guggul or as directed by the physician to get relief from the symptoms of osteoporosis. Take it once or twice a day, preferably after meals. Avoid self-medication or taking Lakshadi Guggul in excess.

Lakshadi Guggul is generally well tolerated and does not have any side effects when taken in the recommended dose. However, it is advisable to consult the doctor before using Lakshadi Guggulu.

Benefits of Lakshadi Guggul

1. Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis means ‘porous bones. It is a disease that weakens the bones, increasing the risk of fracture. It occurs when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both. Osteoporosis, known as Asthi-Majjakshaya in Ayurveda, occurs because of degeneration or deterioration of bone tissue. This is due to an imbalance of Vata dosha in the body. Lakshadi Guggul helps prevent the degeneration of bones by providing essential natural calcium. It also provides relief from pain due to its Vata balancing, thereby helping manage osteoporosis.

2.Bone fracture

Lakshadi Guggul is a rich source of calcium which helps promote a faster healing process in bone fractures. It enhances the calcium deposition on the bones, promoting faster recovery. Regular use of Lakshadi Guggul may help reduce pain due to its Vata balancing nature.

3. Arthritis
Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints which may cause pain and swelling. It can affect one joint or multiple joints. Lakshadi Guggul is an effective polyherbal remedy used for reducing painful conditions like osteoarthritis, a form of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is known as Sandhivata in Ayurveda. It occurs due to an aggravation of Vata dosha, causing pain, swelling, and joint mobility. Taking Lakshadi Guggul helps to balance the aggravated Vata due to its Vata balancing properties. This provides aid in managing the symptoms of arthritis.

4. General Weakness:
General weakness is a feeling of body fatigue or tiredness. You may feel a lack of energy. This usually happens when the body is deprived of a continuous flow of energy. Lakshadi Guggul is useful in managing general weakness or fatigue in day-to-day life. According to Ayurveda, fatigue is also known as klama. It is caused due to an imbalance of Kapha dosha and deficiency of essential minerals in the body. Lakshadi Guggul helps provide the essential requirement of calcium, thereby helping reduce the symptoms of fatigue or weakness.
