  1. is it good for reducing plaqe formation in ica?

  2. Dear sir. ,Our doctor prescribed this kanmada basmam for irregular period problem along with kumari aandavan for my daughter ..please explain

  3. The ingredient written is:
    250 mg of bhasma contains
    karpurashilajatu 250mg, godugdham q.s., & tanduliya rasa q.s.
    Is karpurashilajatu same as potassium nitrate (KNO3)?

  4. I’ve been prescribed kanmada basmam tablets twice daily for bones and strength. Please advise if this tablet is useful for this? As I’m reading here that it’s for urinary issues…

    • It is also useful for improving bone strength. Please go ahead with your doctor’s advice.

      • Thank you Doctor. I’ve been reading about its diuretic effects, so I was a bit worried. I’ve been on indukantham kwatham tabs, dhanwantharam gulika tabs and indukanta ghritam for the past few months for digestive issues. I hope kanmada bhasmam won’t have any side effects.

        • It is generally well tolerated without any side effects.
          For personal health advice, please consult an Ayurveda doctor directly.
