Ayurvedic Herbs for the Lungs

Bibhitaki Extract, 2 oz.

Bibhitaki is a tropical fruit found throughout India. It is about the size of a large walnut and is primarily astringent in taste. Bibhitaki is one of the three fruits in the famous triphala formula and is the preferred herb for regulating kapha. This means it is used when there are kapha accumulations in the lungs, ears, sinuses, throat, liver, and urinary tract. It is astringent and therefore absorbs the excess moisture of kapha. It has some lesser known value for treating tropical conditions such as diarrhea, pulmonary eosinophilia, and allergic reactions, very likely parasitic in origin. It is also one of the herbs used in oral health, but it usually the shell that is made as a decoction and then used as an oral rinse.

Ingredients: Terminalia bellirica Fruit, distilled water, organic alcohol, and vegetable glycein.
