Eclipta alba – a future drug against high blood pressure?

Diuretic, Hypoten­sive, and Hypoc­ho­les­terolemic Effects of Eclipta alba in Mild Hyper­ten­sive Sub­jects1. Eclipta alba is a ancient med­i­c­i­nal plant, most widely used in the Indian sub­con­ti­nent. It has been used for cen­turies for a wide spec­trum of med­ical con­di­tions, includ­ing infec­tion, inflam­ma­tion, fever, con­sti­pa­tion and as a rem­edy for liver protection. In a research study from 2007, researchers eval­u­ated the poten­tial of Eclipta alba to treat hyper­ten­sion – high blood pres­sure, a com­mon dis­ease in the west­ern world. Sixty males with high blood pres­sure and a seden­tary life-style were enrolled into a clin­i­cal trial in India. They were sep­a­rated into two groups; the first group received six cap­sules con­tain­ing Eclipta extract a day (treat­ment group), the sec­ond group received the same num­ber of cap­sules, but with a placebo, i.e. there was no Eclipta extract in them (placebo or con­trol group). The clin­i­cal trial was ran­dom­ized, the par­tic­i­pants could not and did not know whether they had received Eclipta cap­sules or a placebo. The vol­un­teers in the study were fol­lowed for sixty days and their health reg­u­larly eval­u­ated. There were no impor­tant dif­fer­ences in the first weeks between the two groups. How­ever, all par­tic­i­pants were exam­ined on the 45th day of the study and patients in the treat­ment group had sig­nif­i­cantly lower blood pres­sure com­pared to their ini­tial val­ues at the time of enroll­ment. Not sur­pris­ingly, patients on placebo had no mea­sur­able drop in blood pres­sure. On a follow-up visit fif­teen days later, the blood pres­sure in treated par­tic­i­pants dropped even fur­ther and was within the nor­mal, ref­er­ence value range for healthy people. In other words, Eclipta alba pro­vided ade­quate treat­ment...

Eclipta alba as a painkiller — Scientific Research

Anal­gesic Stud­ies on Total Alka­loids and Alco­hol Extracts of Eclipta alba (Linn.) Hask1. Eclipta Alba has been tra­di­tion­ally used in folk cul­ture as a rem­edy against pain and inflam­ma­tion, but no study has ever ver­i­fied Eclipta’s effi­cacy in pain and inflam­ma­tion man­age­ment. Researchers from Mum­bai in India per­formed a  study on ani­mals to eval­u­ate whether Eclipta alba has pain-killing, anal­gesic, actions on the body. Inves­ti­ga­tors used lab­o­ra­tory mice and divided them into five groups. The first group con­sisted of mice that received a placebo – nor­mal saline, which has no known anal­gesic effects. Mice in the sec­ond group were treated with a stan­dard painkiller, either aspirin or codeine, both com­monly pre­scribed and used. Ani­mals from the third and fourth group received a low-dose or high-dose Eclipta alba alco­hol extract, respec­tively, and mice from the fifth group were treated with a chlo­ro­form Eclipta extract, referred as a total alka­loid solu­tion. Researchers used three dis­tinct exper­i­ments to deter­mine the level of pain and dis­com­fort asso­ci­ated with it and in every exper­i­ment, mice from all five groups were tested and compared. In the first exper­i­ment, they clipped mice tail with a bull­dog clip and mea­sured the time lag before respond­ing to the painful stim­u­lus. Nor­mally, a mouse responds by bit­ing the clip or the tail near the loca­tion of the pain. Admin­is­tra­tion of aspirin and low-dose Eclipta extract dou­bled the response time, indi­cat­ing that both reme­dies were suc­cess­ful in ame­lio­rat­ing pain. Treat­ment with high-dose Eclipta extract and total alka­loids tripled the response time, doc­u­ment­ing that the anal­gesic effect of Eclipta is dose-depandant. In the next exper­i­ment, they bathed the tails in hot water...

Eclipta Alba and Hair Loss — Scientific Research

Hair growth pro­mot­ing activ­ity of Eclipta alba in male albino rats1 Eclipta alba also known as Bhringraj, is a med­i­c­i­nal herb with a tra­di­tional claim of hair growth pro­mo­tion. This was tested in a research exper­i­ment from 2008 in India. The main pur­pose of the study was to eval­u­ate whether Eclipta in fact has a poten­tial to pro­mote hair growth and test is as a rem­edy for hair loss. Male rats had hair shaved over the bel­lies and were ran­domly assigned into six groups; each group of rats received a dif­fer­ent test sam­ple applied over the shaved skin. The first group con­sisted of rats receiv­ing an oint­ment con­tain­ing no active ingre­di­ents, this group was used as a con­trol group. The sec­ond and third group  received an oint­ment con­tain­ing a 2% and 5% alco­hol Eclipta extract, respec­tively. The fourth and fifth group had a 2% and 5% petro­leum Eclipta extract applied, respec­tively, and the last, sixth, group received an oint­ment con­tain­ing minox­i­dil which is com­monly used by der­ma­tol­o­gists to restore hair growth in men with baldness. A small piece of skin over the belly was sub­se­quently removed every few days and exam­ined under a micro­scope to eval­u­ate for hair growth. It resumed in the sec­ond week in the untreated, con­trol group and on the sixth day in rats treated with monox­i­dil. The fastest restora­tion of hair growth was observed in rats treated with the 5% Eclipta petro­leum extract; these rats had hair grow­ing from the fifth day on, whereas rats treated with the 2% petro­leum Eclipta extract from the sixth day on, sim­i­lar to minoxidil. Treat­ment with the alco­hol Eclipta extract...

Natural Remedies for Hair Loss

The leaves and roots of the eclipta alba plant, also known as false daisy, are pow­er­ful nat­ural reme­dies for a vari­ety of ail­ments. Whether you are suf­fer­ing from hair loss, grey­ing hair or many of the other effects of increased age, there is a cure for your prob­lems in eclipta alba. The eclipta plant has been used in tra­di­tional med­i­cine of India, China, Tai­wan and Brazil for cen­turies. In Ayurveda, India’s ancient and time-honoured sys­tem of nat­ural med­i­cine and the old­est med­ical prac­tice in the world, the eclipa plant is recog­nised as one of the most potent restora­tives in the world. Now west­ern sci­ence is pay­ing atten­tion to this amaz­ing plant. Stud­ies con­ducted in the 1950s, the 1970s and as recently as 2009 have all shown that the roots, stem and leaves of eclipta alba, the “false daisy”, con­tain a mul­ti­tude of potent chem­i­cals that are anti­her­pa­to­tox­ins, anti-inflamatories and antivi­rals. The plant is used in liver detox­i­fi­ca­tion because of its abil­ity to heal cir­rho­sis of the liver. Treat­ing the Dis­eases of Aging One of the most com­mon side effects of get­ting older is hair loss and going grey. Eclipta alba pro­vides a rem­edy for both. The leaf extract of the false daisy is a strong nat­ural black dye that is often used in tat­too­ing because of its rich colour. That colour is due to chem­i­cals that have the power to restore lost colour to your hair. In addi­tion, the leaf extract con­tains chem­i­cals that speed up the heal­ing process for dam­aged hair fol­li­cles. Hair fol­li­cle dam­age is the root cause of hair loss in women, and repair­ing the dam­age leads to hair...

The Healing Powers of Eclipta Alba

West­ern med­ical sci­ence has repeat­edly stud­ied the remark­able heal­ing pow­ers of eclipta alba for the past sixty years, con­clud­ing each time that this amaz­ing plant is one of the most potent sources of nat­ural reme­dies avail­able. Ayurveda, the tra­di­tional med­i­cine of India and the old­est med­i­c­i­nal dis­ci­pline in the world, has long known of the poten­tial of eclipta alba. The plant has been used in India for over 5000 years to treat a range of ail­ments, includ­ing every­thing from headaches and migraines to treat­ing worm infes­ta­tions and liver detox­i­fi­ca­tion. The plant’s leaves, roots and stem all con­tain a mix­ture of chem­i­cals the body needs to fight infec­tion, treat dis­eases and cure the sick. It is one of nature’s own won­der drugs in herbal form. Treat­ing Worms with Eclipta Alba Worm infes­ta­tions can be very com­mon, espe­cially in young chil­dren because their immune sys­tems are under­de­vel­oped and can­not fight off infec­tions as eas­ily. This leads to easy infes­ta­tions of tape worms, which can be deadly if left unchecked. For­tu­nately eclipta alba leaf extract is a strong anti-worm rem­edy. Sim­ply mix between 3 and 6 tea­spoons of left extract with some honey and give it to your child once a day for a week. Because babies and younger chil­dren should not be given honey (it can lead to upper res­pi­ra­tory tract infec­tions and other dis­eases of the lungs due to their under­de­vel­oped immune sys­tems), honey should be sub­sti­tuted for cas­tor oil. This makes the leaf extract (which is already rather bit­ter) taste bad, but it is much safer for the child. Pin worm infes­ta­tions are equally as bad as tape worms. For­tu­nately...

How to Reverse Female Hair Loss

Over the cen­turies, peo­ple have tried a wide range of reme­dies to coun­ter­act female hair loss, with vary­ing degrees of suc­cess. In India, where the ancient tra­di­tion of Ayurvedic med­i­cine has its roots, there is a proven tech­nique to reverse hair loss in women and even restore dam­aged hair to its nat­ural lustre. The leaves of the eclipta alba plant are widely known for their amaz­ing restora­tive pow­ers. They can heal liver cir­rho­sis; coun­ter­act snake and insect bites through bloody detox­i­fi­ca­tion; restore colour to grey­ing hair; and even reverse hair loss. These remark­able achieve­ments have been used in Ayurvedic med­i­cine (where it is known as bhringraj oil) for over 5000 years and for the last fifty years, West­ern sci­ence has been study­ing the plant’s amaz­ing properties. Research pub­lished in 1955, 1977 and 2009 all con­cluded that eclipta alba leaf extract con­tains active chem­i­cals that cause the body to begin renew­ing dam­aged hair cells. The leaf encour­ages the repa­ra­tion of dam­age to the scalp, which restores the hair fol­li­cles to a work­ing state. Hair begins to grow again and the chem­i­cals in the leaf extract encour­age the fol­li­cles to remain in the grow­ing phase for longer than would nat­u­rally be pos­si­ble. As a result, hair loss is reversed quickly and hair regrows at a faster pace. Prepar­ing Eclipta Alba Hair Oil or Bhringraj oil Eclipta alba has many uses depend­ing on how it is pre­pared. Detox­i­fi­ca­tion of the blood occurs when the leaf extract is ingested, while using a top­i­cal paste relieves pain and inflam­ma­tion of the skin. For female hair loss, the leaf extract must be made into an oil. Many...

Ayurvedic Medicine Can Relieve Your Ailments

Mod­ern med­i­cine is a won­der­ful thing but it can­not cure every­thing. Med­ica­tion often comes with side effects, some of which are worse than the symp­toms the pills are sup­posed to cure. Thank­fully there are alter­na­tives, which can be used along­side or instead of con­ven­tional med­i­cine to relieve those ail­ments that con­tinue to make our lives a misery. Ayurvedic med­i­cine comes to us from India, where it has been the pre­ferred med­ical prac­tice for over 5000 years. It focusses on nat­ural herbal reme­dies that are time-honoured and have long been proved effec­tive in the treat­ment of many prob­lems, from colon cleans­ing and cir­rho­sis of the liver to treat­ments for jaun­dice and hepatitis. In India, Ayurvedic med­i­cine is prac­ticed by many ortho­dox med­ical prac­ti­tion­ers. Doc­tors often use it to com­ple­ment their west­ern med­ical prac­tices, because its all-natural ther­a­pies are use­ful in the treat­ment of ail­ments mod­ern med­i­cine can­not treat quickly or cheaply. Treat­ing Cir­rho­sis with Eclipta Alba The leaves of the eclipta alba (known locally as Bhringaraj) plant are hepato pro­tec­tive, mean­ing they strengthen the body’s nat­ural resis­tance to dam­age to the hepatic sys­tem by assist­ing in the removal of tox­ins from the liver. In fact, the chem­i­cals con­tained in eclipta alba have been shown in sev­eral sci­en­tific tests to be some of the most potent naturally-produced chem­i­cals in the world. For the treat­ment of liver prob­lems, no other plant extract comes close to the effec­tive­ness of eclipta alba; and its effec­tive­ness even sur­passes sev­eral pharmaceuticals. The active ingre­di­ents found in eclipta alba that help pro­tect the liver are demethyl wede­lo­lac­tone and wede­lo­lac­tone, both of which are found through­out the plant. These...

What is Ayurvedic medicine?

Ayurvedic med­i­cine has been used in India for over 5000 years. It is one of the old­est forms of nat­ural med­i­cine in the world, with prac­tices that have stood both the test of time and the rigours of mod­ern sci­en­tific study. In the mod­ern world, Ayurvedic treat­ments are in use all across the globe and mil­lions rely on their remark­able heal­ing pow­ers every year. The word “ayurvedic” comes from San­skrit, where it means “the knowl­edge of life”. Although it and unani med­i­cine have inter­mixed with clas­si­cal Greek, Roman and Per­sian prac­tices over the cen­turies to form com­plex med­ical sys­tems in their own right, mod­ern ayurvedic prac­ti­tion­ers in India are often qual­i­fied med­ical doc­tors as well. This means when you try ayurveda for your­self you can be sure that the peo­ple advis­ing you are trained in tra­di­tional med­i­cine as well as this ancient and time-honoured com­ple­men­tary therapy. What Does Ayurvedic Med­i­cine Contain? Ayurveda is con­cerned with nat­ural reme­dies, rather than syn­thetic com­po­nents made in a lab­o­ra­tory or phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pany. It uses nat­ural herbs and min­er­als to heal a vari­ety of ills and the meth­ods have long with­stood the test of time. In the case of hair loss reme­dies, colour reju­ve­na­tion and even treat­ments for snakebites, the favoured herb to go to in ayurevedic med­i­cine is eclipta alba. This plant goes by many names - bhringaraj, bhringraja, kehraj or karisalankanni. Eclipta alba has been used for cen­turies in India, China, Tai­wan and even as far afield as Brazil because of its remark­able nat­ural heal­ing prop­er­ties. What’s more, it works fast. The Many Uses of Bhringaraj One of the most highly regarded of the herbs found...

Ayurvedic Medicine for Hair Loss

Hair loss is a ter­ri­ble ail­ment that causes stress and lower self-esteem for mil­lions each year. The symp­toms, whether slow in onset or quick to appear, reduce self con­fi­dence and attempts to hide or dis­guise the con­di­tion rarely suc­ceed. There are many reme­dies for hair loss on the mar­ket but out of all the herbal med­i­cine options, only ayurvedic med­i­cine is proven by med­ical sci­ence to be both a quick and effec­tive remedy. What is Ayurveda? In India, the tra­di­tional med­i­cine sys­tem for over 5000 years has been Ayurveda. This is a sys­tem of nat­ural herbal med­i­cines that form the old­est med­ical dis­ci­pline in the world. Ayurveda is based on sim­i­lar ideas to those of ancient Greece and Rome, which are the basis of mod­ern West­ern med­ical thought. The word Ayurvedic comes from two San­skrit words and means “the sci­ence of life”. In the mod­ern world, it com­bines nat­ural reme­dies with West­ern med­i­cine; as most prac­ti­tion­ers of ayurveda in its native India are also med­ical doc­tors in their own right. As a result, this herbal med­i­cine is often used to com­ple­ment stan­dard med­ical procedures. That does not mean ayurveda can­not stand on its own, of course. Research over the last sixty years has proven time and time again that many ayurvedic prac­tices, such as the use of bhringraj oil, are actu­ally very pow­er­ful nat­ural reme­dies. Bhringraj, for exam­ple, is a strong restora­tive with proven effec­tive­ness in treat­ing hair loss and grey­ing hair. Herbal Med­i­cine Treats Hair Loss The eclipta alba plant, known as bhringraj in India, is a remark­able plant. Its roots, stem and leaves are all used in herbal med­i­cine...

Bhringraj Hair Oil Works

Bhringraj is a plant found grow­ing all over India, as well as parts of China, Tai­wan and Brazil. It has been used in tra­di­tional Indian med­i­cine for thou­sands of years, and is still used in the mod­ern world because of its amaz­ing restora­tive qual­i­ties. Bhringaraj leaves are used to cre­ate a won­der­fully vibrant black dye for colour­ing hair and the same nat­ural dye is also used in tattoos. In med­i­cine, the leaves of the Bhringraj plant are used to cure a vari­ety of ail­ments from snakebites to hair loss. In order to treat hair loss, the plant extract is formed into bhringraj hair oil and mas­saged into the affected areas of the scalp. This mas­sag­ing com­bined with the potent chem­i­cals in the bhringraj plant extract work together to relieve the prob­lems caus­ing hair loss, and to restore colour to grey­ing hair. Med­ical tests have shown that repeated use of this hair oil treat­ment not only speeds up recov­ery time for con­di­tions such as trac­tion alope­cia hair loss but the hair fol­li­cles also remain in the grow­ing phase for longer. This makes bhringaraj hair oil an excel­lent choice not just for hair loss suf­fer­ers but also for any­one who wants to grow their hair out quickly. What Makes Bhringaraj So Potent? The Bhrin­haraj leaves are not the only part of the plant that have amaz­ing reju­ve­na­tive pow­ers. The plant itself pos­sesses anti­sep­tic and anti­hep­a­to­toxic qual­i­ties and is a good source of ascor­bic acid. The roots are a diuretic and tonic. The whole plant is a cor­nu­copia of nat­ural remedies. The rea­son bhringaraj is able to pro­vide all these dif­fer­ent uses is...
