Ashoka Herb Health Benefits

Ashoka tree belongs to the family of legumes and is a part of the subfamily Caesalpiniaceae. It was originally found mainly in the central part of the Deccan plateau and in the middle part of the Western Ghats in western India.


The flowers appear in lush and heavy bunches. The colour of the flowers is bright orange-yellow and they turn red before wilting.


The Ashoka herb benefits the endometrium and uterine muscles and this makes it effective as a uterine tonic for irregular menstrual cycles and miscarriage.


For internal piles, the bark of the Ashoka tree can be used.


To prepare the decoction, take around 90 grams of the bark and boil it in 360 ml of water and 30 ml of milk until the entire quantity reduces to around 90 grams.


Two to three doses of this can be taken each day.


The Ashoka herb is also said to improve the complexion of skin. This herb can be used to obtain relief from burning sensations on the skin.


It also helps to get rid of the toxins from the body.


The Ashoka herb is also effective in purifying the blood naturally and in preventing skin allergies.


It is said to keep women healthy and youthful and is mainly used for gynaecological problems, with the bark employed as well as the flowers and roots in medical preparations.


Ashoka has been efficacious in regularising menstrual disturbances without producing any side-effect.


Its effect on the ovarian tissue may produce an oestrogen-like activity that enhances the repair of the endometrium and stops bleeding.


In metrorrhagia, in addition to decreasing the uterine bleeding, it regularises the interval between two cycles.


Besides treating the symptoms of fatigue and generalised weakness, the use of Ashoka provides immense relief from painful menses, the premenstrual syndrome and non-specific white discharge.
