Bhringaraj Herb Benefits
Besides bhringaraj oil benefits, bhringaraj herbs also have various benefits. In today's urban lifestyle, where eating habits of people have changed drastically, problems of liver are very common. Liver and kidney are the two prime organs responsible for elimination of wastes and purification of blood. Under functioning of either of these organs has adverse effects on other parts of the body. The digestive power (or what we call 'agni') of the digestive system is restored by bhringaraj oil and so, it facilitates digestion. Smoking, alcohol, betel leaves chewing, excess of tea-coffee, increase the pressure on liver and it tends to slow down in its functioning and secretion of bile juice, however, bhringaraj oil causes ample secretion of bile juice and thus, helps the liver in its functioning. In order to improve the tone of liver, spleen, stomach, fresh juices of bhringaraj leaves can be taken on an empty stomach for a few weeks.
