The King Of Medicines: Benefits of Haritaki Churna for Piles

Once upon a time, from the highest heavens, fell a small drop of nectar down on the earth. But where did it emerge from? 

It had fallen from the celestial cup of none other than the King of Hindu Gods - Lord Indra. 

This drop germinated into a sprout which grew to be called the Haritaki tree. 

As stated in the Vedas, the Hindu scriptures written in India, the name Haritaki is derived from the name of ‘Hari’, one of the primary epithets of Lord Vishnu. 

Hari means ‘the one who takes away sins’ and Haritaki translates to “that which embodies Hari”.

Haritaki has been regarded as the King of Medicines and has been mentioned in the ancient texts of many religions and countries for the benefit of the body as well as the soul. It has been largely used for gastrointestinal issues, especially constipation and Piles.

Read this article to know what the King of Medicine really is and the benefits of Haritaki churna for Piles.

What is Haritaki?

Haritaki, commonly known as Harad, is one of the major components, along with Amla and Bhibitaki, in Triphala Churna- the most miraculous formulation. 

Triphala churna is the most versatile formulation which is used as a laxative agent during constipation, detoxifying agent of the colon, and is considered a rejuvenator of the body. 

Medicinal uses of Terminalia chebula, which is the scientific name of Haritaki, have been rigorously mentioned in the ancient ayurvedic texts. Haritaki is considered a prime medicinal herb for its marvelous benefits. 

The most used part of the plant along with bark and leaves is the small oblong-shaped fruit and its seed. 

The fruit is consumed largely for easier bowel movements and heals the wounded areas efficiently. For these qualities, it is blindly trusted to cure stomach issues, especially constipation and Piles. 

It is also applied externally to heal inflammations and treat fungal infections

The fruits are collected in their raw state, dried, and powdered for medicinal use. Haritaki is also rich in tannins,flavonoids, sterols, amino acids, resin, etc.

Haritaki uses for Piles

If you are wondering what is Haritaki Churna used for? It is majorly used for one of the most tormenting gastrointestinal diseases - Piles.

Piles also known as hemorrhoids are one the most common conditions associated with gastrointestinal diseases

With the endless side effects that come through the usage of modern medicine, Haritaki is one of the best choices for the herbal treatment of piles.

Hence, all the goodness of Haritaki has been carefully packed in GoYNG Piles Care along with many other important components which can help you from healing Piles. 

The fruit of haritaki is majorly known as a mild laxative which is extremely beneficial for treating hemorrhoids or piles.

Haritaki acts as an anti-inflammatory agent that helps reduce inflammation and healing properties that treat the wound in the gut during piles. 

The reason why it is highly recommended to use haritaki for piles is because of the presence of Gallic acid in Haritaki which acts as a strong coagulating agent which stops bleeding from Piles.

The efficacy of Haritaki against pain is attributed to the many special constituents especially tannins which prohibit certain enzymes and pain-inducing processes along with Harad’s central analgesic effect. Also, chebulagic acid in Haritaki helps in relieving pain.

Tannic acids like gallic acid and ellagic acid have astringent properties which help in the contraction of muscles and efficient bowel movement to clean the gut.

Chebulinic acid and terflavin B also help decrease Piles size as they have a relieving effect from the symptoms of varicose veins and a protective effect on the veins.

One of the prime reasons why Haritaki has been used probably since the origin of Ayurveda is because it demonstrates balancing effects on ‘Vata’ or has antispasmodic properties which makes it a popular traditional remedy for digestive issues.
