    I have heard about this product. I want to try it, but i haven’t consult any medical expertise. I have fractured my leg & it has been 1 year but no adequate changes. After second surgery recently , some changes are observed now. Can I use this lakshadi guggul along with my calcium supplement the doctor has prescribed ? ? How effective is this guggul on open fractures ? ? what might be other best Ayurveda drugs to be used for effective & strong bone healing in such fractures?

    • Hi, You can use Lakshadi Guggul along with calcium supplements for quicker fracture healing and bone re-ossification. It can be taken for a period of up to 8 – 10 weeks, in a dose of 1 – 2 tablets, 2 times a day, after food. It also reduces pain and inflammation.

      Along with this, once after complete healing of surgical wounds, you can do massage with Mahanarayan oil – 10 minutes before bath in the morning. Even just applying to the affected joints is sufficient, if you do not know about massaging. Read more about Mahanarayana oil –
