Bhringraj [Eclipta prostrata] also known as Kesharaj or “King of the Hair” is a very popular Ayurvedic herb known for its capability to do magic on the hair.
Being one of the most effective herbs for hair care and a vital ingredient of many hair products that are used to promote hair growth and reduce hair loss, Bhringraj is also considered as a rasayana in Ayurveda as it benefits in rejuvenation.
Let us cite 3 reasons why Bhringraj is rightly named as the “King of the Hair”:
1. Treats Dandruff & Scalp Infections:
Bhringraj has antimicrobial ingredients that work as a remedy for scalp infections and eruptions. Regular use of Bhringraj helps reduce scalp itchiness and inflammation of hair follicles.
2. Boosts Hair Growth
Bhringraj has the capacity to soak up deep in the hair roots, strengthening them and managing hair fall. Oiling your hair 1 hour before you wash your head, helps enhance blood circulation which aids hair growth.
3. Inhibits Premature Greying
Bhringraj oil encourages hair health and strengthens the hair shaft thus inhibiting hair issues like premature greying due to use of hair colour, styling or otherwise.
With nourishing, rejuvenating, and blood purifying properties, Bhringraj may promote a healthy and radiant skin tone. Adding to the Bhringraj uses, with healing properties, it may reduce the problems of cracked heels and some minor skin allergies. Moreover, it may reduce the skin blemishes and thus support a naturally glowing skin.
Regular consumption of Bhringraj powder may soothe the throat and reduce the irritation due to a cough. Owing to the cooling, calming and rejuvenating properties, this Bhringraj powder may reduce the sinus pain and supports healthy living.
In Ayurvedic medicine, the leaf extract of Bhringraj is also considered a powerful liver tonic and detoxifier. The active constituents in bhringraj protect the liver from harmful chemicals by removing AMA Doshas or toxins from the body. It also helps regenerate liver cells. It contains several phytochemicals such as alkaloids, polyacetylenes, thiophene derivatives, flavonoids, and triterpenes.
In fact, all the parts of this plant can be used for therapeutic purposes.
