This amazing herb grows in elevations up to 8,000 feet in the Himalayas! The root promotes lymphatic circulation, encouraging the elimination of toxins. This action can allow manjistha to reduce arthritic pain and swelling, heal bruises, relieve allergies and skin issues, aid weight loss, and dissolve tumors. Manjishta can also induce menstrual bleeding and stimulate uterine contraction, so it is used for amenorrhea and after childbirth (though contraindicated during pregnancy). Recent studies show that it raises dopamine levels, making it potentially effective against anxiety and ADHD symptoms.
THS recommends that you consult with a qualified healthcare professional before using herbal products, particularly if you take other medications, or if you are nursing, pregnant, or expecting to become pregnant.
