Malkangni Beej

Celastrus Paniculatus (also known as Jyotishmati in Sanskrit and Malkangani in Hindi) helps with memory and cognitive functions. It helps with neurological diseases and pain disorders such as muscle cramps, backache, sciatica, osteoarthritis, facial paralysis, and paralysis. 

Celastrus Paniculatus seeds have a very hot potency, which means that seed powder produces heat in the body and gives a feeling of warmth after consumption. This effect is more common with higher Malkangni dosages. 

Smaller doses, on the other hand, may increase heat in the body to a tolerable level. As a result, many ayurvedic physicians use Celastrus Paniculatus in higher doses in the winter and lower doses in the summer. Its lower dosage is also very effective in the treatment of a variety of diseases. 

Its consumption for two weeks is sufficient to see visible effects on memory, eyesight, cognition, and mental alertness. Celastrus Paniculatus (Jyotishmati) is also beneficial in digestive disorders such as appetite loss, constipation, abdominal distension, and so on.
