Benefits Ayurvedic Concept The healthy functioning of kidneys and urinary tract plays an important role in the maintenance of other body functions. Renal stones (Calculus or lithiasis), known as “Ashmari” in Ayurvedic science, is one of the most common problems of the urinary tract. It occurs more frequently in men than in women. Urinary calculus is a stone-like body composed of urinary salts bound together by colloid mixture of organic materials. It consists of a nucleus, around which concentric layers of urinary salts are deposited. All the biological Humors (Doshas), i.e. Vata (Air), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Water), are involved in the pathogenesis of calculus. If the Vata (Air) dries up the urine in the bladder along with the semen, Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Water), then gradually forms a calculus. A calculus is just like a stone and may be of the appearance of either mulberry oxalate stone or it may be a smooth and three layered stone (Uric acid stone), or a soft stone (Phosphatic stone). When it passes in the urinary tract, it causes obstruction in the flow of urine and produces pain in the course of the urinary tract. The stone, when broken up by Vata (Air), forms sand which passes out through the urinary tract. What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is the traditional medicine and natural healing system of India.

Herbs are granulated and cooked as a decoction to improve bio availability. Combining Components They devote meticulous attention to each individual component of a formula and then, of course, to how components work together. Roots are cooked over low temperature overnight. Flowers are prepared by infusion. Alkaloid-containing herbs are soaked in alcohol, and aromatic extracts are added last to preserve their volatile components. A small amount of acacia gum and cellulose are used to bind the ingredients together, while magnesium aids the tableting process. Tableting and Packaging Once the herbs are compressed into tablets, they are coated to ease swallowing and preserve freshness. To make sure they can be absorbed, their disintegration is timed. During the final stage of manufacturing, they are packaged into bottles, inner and outer safety seals are applied, and each bottle is stamped with a lot number and manufacture date. A sample of each batch is sent to an outside lab to ensure the accuracy, purity and potency.
