Akarkara belongs to Asteracea family of plants and its botanical name is Anacyclus Pyrethrum. It is a herb with many medicinal uses. Apart from Ayurveda, it is used by other alternative systems of medicine like Unani and Homeopathy.

It is mostly known and famous for its aphrodisiac effect on the body and how it helps in the detoxification of excess wastes and fluids from the body.

The major beneficial and medicinally useful part of this plant is its root which is used in the form of dried powder.

Anacyclus pyrethrum works very effectively on the male reproductive system. It is very good for the body in improving the hormonal regulation of the male gonads and in stimulating the secretions of these organs.

It may also help improve testosterone levels in males. Overall, it improves libido, sperm count and fertility problems in them.

Anacyclus pyrethrum is also a very good nervine tonic as it helps strengthen nerve response and improves and balances vata bio – energy responsible for healthy nerve functions in the body.

All in all this can be considered as a very good option for males suffering from libido issues as it can help improve sexual pleasures and erectile problems overtime without causing any side effects that are very common with modern drugs.

It is often combined with other herbs to amplify its effects. Ashwagandha (Withania Somniferum) and Kaunch beej (Mucuna Pruriens) are the two herbs that can be used in conjunction with Akarkara.

Akarkara can help relieve oral conditions and throat infections like pharyngitis. It can be boiled and used as gargle to provide quick and natural relief in case of pharyngitis and teeth and gum problems. Due to its vata vitiating properties, Akarkara can be used to relieve toothache and infectious gum condition like pyorrhea also.

Kapha vitiating properties of this herb can be used to treat nasal congestion and upper respiratory tract problems like common cold.

Akaraka has an important role to play in preventing and controlling epilepsy and seizures. It can be combined with other herbs like Shankhapushpi (Convolvulus Pluricaulis) etc for this purpose.
