Due to antispasmodic and carminative characteristics, Nagarmotha is a useful home treatment for gastrointestinal ailments. Because of its antioxidant properties, Nagarmotha also aids in the management of diabetes.

It protects the body from some diseases by preventing cell damage produced by free radicals. It also possesses anti-diarrheal properties due to the presence of flavonoids, which reduces the production of watery stools. 

Because of its antibacterial properties, Nagarmotha also protects against bacterial and fungal illnesses. If you have hypersensitive skin, it is best to combine Nagarmotha oil or powder with coconut oil or rose water.

Nagarmotha for Abdominal pain

Nagarmotha provides relief from abdominal pain caused by gas or flatulence. Flatulence is produced by a Vata-Pitta Dosha imbalance. Low Pitta dosha and exacerbated Vata dosha cause a decrease in digestive fire, which impairs digestion. Abdominal pain is caused by poor digestion. Because of its Deepan (appetiser) and Pachan (digestive) characteristics, taking Nagarmotha helps to increase digestive fire and correct digestion.

a. Take 14-1/2 teaspoon Nagarmotha Churna (Powder).

b. To relieve gastrointestinal pain, take it twice a day with lukewarm water after eating. 

Nagarmotha for Indigestion

Nagarmotha aids in the treatment of dyspepsia. Indigestion, according to Ayurveda, is the result of an inadequate digestive process. The fundamental cause of indigestion is exacerbated Kapha, which leads to Agnimandya (weak digestive fire). Taking Nagarmotha improves Agni (digestive fire) and facilitates digestion. This is because of its Deepan (appetiser) and Pachan (digestive) qualities.

Nagarmotha for Diarrhea

In Ayurveda, diarrhoea is referred to as Atisar. It is caused by poor diet, contaminated water, pollutants, mental tension, and Agnimandya (weak digestive fire). All of these variables contribute to the aggravation of Vata.

This heightened Vata takes fluid into the gut from numerous body tissues and mixes it with the excrement. This causes loose, watery bowel movements or diarrhoea. Nagarmotha aids in the control of diarrhoea.

This is owing to its Deepan (appetiser) Pachan (digestive) qualities, which increase digestive fire. It also thickens the stool and decreases the frequency of movements.

Nagarmotha for Obesity

Obesity or undesired fat accumulation is caused by an excess of Ama in the body, according to Ayurveda. Nagarmotha reduces Ama via increasing digestion, food absorption, and lowering extra fat in the body.

Nagarmotha for Worms

Nagarmotha is beneficial in the treatment of worm infections. This is attributed to its anti-worm characteristic, Krimighna.

Nagarmotha for Fever

Nagarmotha may aid in the reduction of fever and accompanying symptoms. There are many types of fever, according to Ayurveda, depending on the dosha involved. Fever usually suggests an excess of Ama due to a lack of digestive fire. Because of its Deepan (appetiser) and Pachan (digestive) characteristics, drinking cooked Nagarmotha water helps to lessen Ama.
