Even today with modern technology, diseases like typhoid, malaria, and jaundice are the challenge to western medical practitioners but thousands of years ago Indian Ayurvedic physicians had developed a formula to treat and cure these challenging diseases with a unique mixture of locally available herbs.
Sudarshana Churna is a multipurpose ayurvedic formulation. It is mostly used to treat all types of fever. The Churna or powder is a mix of many different anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and immunity-boosting herbs. In India, for thousands of years, Sudarshana Churna has been used successfully in the treatment of malaria.
Kirata Tikta, a potent anti-viral, and anti-microbial herb is the major ingredient of Sudarshana Churna. Other ingredients in Sudarshana Churna include ginger, turmeric, guduchi, triphala, pepper, piper longum, kachuram and many other herbs with antipyretic and immunomodulatory properties.
A study in 2008, titled “Evaluation of Antimicrobial Potential of Sudarshan Churna: A Polyherbal Formulation” published in the Iranian Journal of Pharmacology and Therapeutics has confirmed the positive impact of Sudarshana Churna in nullifying various bacteria and microbes.
