    it will cure stammering

  2. Is this helpful for bleaching and back pain

  3. I’m a 25 male. I accidently had this medicine yesterday night. You said it cause depleted sperm quality and quantity. Is that a permanent side effect, because I had a temporary change in my libido due benzo withdrawal (Sleeping Drug) but I was fine. Do you think this herb will cause more problem in sex drive?

    • one day use of hinguvachadi choornam does not cause depleted sperm quality and quantity, it is affected due to regular use and that too in a already weak and the person with infertility.

  4. Can You supply this churn to maintain low blood pressure, Dr.Shishra,
