Inflammation is the underlying cause of morbidity and disease. Ayurveda views inflammation as a pathological derangement of Kapha – Pitta doshas in the body. The offensive dosha element aided by Vata vitiates the circulating blood and allied metabolic activities. With time it manifests as various inflammatory conditions of skin, joints and bones.
Guggulutiktaka Ghritam is a potent herbal ghee that reaches deep into body tissue and roots out pain, swelling and metabolic waste. The natural steroid Guggulusterone aids in bringing about sustained pain relief and healing.
Ghritas (medicated ghees) are combinations of fats and aqueous extract of medicinal plants. The medicinal active principles in the form of juices, decoctions and fresh ground paste of herbs and roots, are gradually infused into pure ghee at a stipulated temperature. The human body is accustomed to ‘ghrita’ or ghee by birth. For the same reason, therapeutic formulations based in ghee can be administered for long periods with sustained results.
