Journal Title:International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharmaceutical Chemistry
This study aims to study the effect of Pravalpanchamrut (PP) in the management of Amlapitta. It is the disease which occurs due to vitiated pitta dosha. It is caused due to improper digestion of food which is the result of faulty food habit.When pitta is increased in the body by amlaguna it is called as Amlapitta. According to Ayurved PP is sheetal, pittashamak and it is indicated for Amlapitta, chhardi, raktapitta, mootravikar, jwara etc. PP contains calcium carbonate (CaCO3) which rapidly neutralizes oesophageal acid and may prevent reflux, suggesting another mechanism of action independent of acid neutralization.These useful properties of PP and need of time for the management of Amlapitta made this experiment successful.
