Musta (Cyperusrotundus) is considered one of the best Ayurvedic herbs for promoting healthy, regular menstruation. Balancing for all three doshas, it helps regulate pitta and vata in the lower abdomen, promoting a comfortable, healthy flow.
Abdominal pain:Musta gives to relief from abdominal pain due to gas or flatulence. Flatulence is caused due to an imbalance of Vata and Pitta Dosha. Low Pitta dosha and aggravated Vatadosha result in low digestive fire, thus impairing digestion. Impaired digestion leads to abdominal pain. Taking Nagarmotha helps to improve digestive fire and correct the digestion because of its Deepan (Appetizer) and Pachan (digestive) properties.
Indigestion:Musta helps to manage indigestion. According to Ayurveda, indigestion means the state of an incomplete process of digestion.
Diarrhea: Diarrhea is known as Atisar in Ayurveda. It is due to improper food, impure water, toxins, mental stress and Agnimandya (weak digestive fire). Musta helps to control diarrhea. This is because it improves digestive fire due to its Deepan (appetizer) Pachan (digestive) properties. It also makes the stool thick and reduces the frequency of motion.
Obesity:In Ayurveda, obesity or unwanted fat accumulation is due to an excess Ama in the body. Musta helps to reduce Ama by improving digestion, absorption of food and by reducing excess fat in the body.
Worms: Musta is useful to control worm infections. This is due to its Krimighna (anti-worm) property.
