Bharangi Guda, also known as Bharangi Sugar, is an Ayurvedic formulation made from the herb Bharangi (Clerodendrum serratum) and sugar or jaggery. Bharangi is a plant that has been traditionally used in Ayurveda for its therapeutic properties, particularly for respiratory conditions.
The preparation involves extracting the active constituents of Bharangi by boiling it with sugar or jaggery, resulting in a concentrated form of the herb combined with the sweetness of sugar or jaggery.
Bharangi Guda is primarily used in Ayurveda for respiratory issues, including coughs, colds, bronchitis, and asthma. It is believed to have expectorant and bronchodilator properties, which can help in clearing mucus from the respiratory tract and improving breathing.
Additionally, Bharangi Guda may have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects, which can be beneficial in managing respiratory conditions.
As with any Ayurvedic remedy, it’s important to use Bharangi Guda under the guidance and supervision of a qualified healthcare professional or Ayurvedic practitioner. They can provide appropriate dosage and usage instructions based on your individual health condition and needs. Keep in mind that while traditional uses of Bharangi Guda exist, scientific studies validating its efficacy may vary, so it’s important to approach its use with caution and under professional guidance.
