The Fountain of Youth has yet to be found, yet every day we discover natural ways to look and feel better and improve the quality of our lives. Again, eclipta alba plays an important role that has been known to ancient healers for thousands of years.
Hair Loss in Women and Male Pattern Baldness
Eclipta alba (bhringraj oil) oil is most widely used in products that thicken hair naturally. The reason is simple: It works very well. In fact, studies have shown that it works at least as well as chemicals offered against hair loss. This is true of hair loss in women as well as male pattern baldness.
The oil is also used to prevent premature graying of hair. In fact, the Saskrit name of eclipta (bhringaraja) translates as “that which bestows hair the splendid color like that of a humming bee.”
As we age, our hair also becomes limp, dry, fine and dull. All of these conditions are successfully treated with bhringaraj oil, which adds volume, bounce and luster.
Erectile Dysfunction Disorder
The ancients knew what they were doing when they used eclipta alba seeds as an aphrodisiac to restore youthful male vigor. Lose the side effects of Viagra and go natural! If you are unable to find seeds, eclipta alba powder is an effective substitute. Take ¼ to ½ teaspoon, mixed with water.
Memory, Sight and Hearing
Have you noticed how all of them decline as we age? Sometimes the progression is so slow that we do not notice. Why take chances? An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Ancient Indian texts recommend using a powder prepared from dried eclipta alba leaves, combine it with honey, rock candy and purified butter, and take it daily for improving memory, sight and hearing.
