Nagaradi Lepa Choornam is an Ayurvedic formulation that helps to treat acute inflammation, traumatic inflammation and oedema. It also helps in relieving fever. The medicine is in the form of powder for external applications – lepanam or upanaham. Nagaradi choornam is also known as Manikkuntirikkadi choornam.
When the body comes into contact with an invading agent (such as viruses, bacteria, or harmful substances) or sustains an injury, it activates the immune system. The immune system’s first responders are inflammatory cells and cytokines (substances that stimulate more inflammatory cells). These cells initiate an inflammatory response in order to capture bacteria and other pathogens or to begin mending wounded tissue. As a result, you may have discomfort, swelling, bruising, or redness. However, inflammation has an impact on biological systems that are not visible.
