Manages Liver Ailments

Due to the hepatoprotective properties in pippali, it may be effective in providing protection against viral hepatitis. When there is an inflammation in the liver, the condition is called hepatitis.

Consuming this herb is a precautionary measure to safeguard yourself from hepatitis.

Relieves Menstrual Problems

Before the onset of monthly cycles, your hormonal fluctuations can cause mood swings or stomach cramps. Using pippali can control heavy menstrual flow and ease your cramps. Since olden times, this herbal powder has also been used for inducing contractions during childbirth. It is also given after delivery to encourage quick healing.

Though pippali side effects are negligible, consuming pippali for a long period can cause health problems like stomach pain, itching, swelling, stomach pain and indigestion. So, take the right dosage as per your doctor’s recommendations. Ideally, you can consume 0.5-1g of pippali powder either in water or milk twice a day. Always have it after meals.
