Kutajarishta is a polyherbal formulation used in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. It is well known for its use in the treatment of conditions like diarrhea, dysentery, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It reduces intestinal motility (the movement of food in the body) which helps treat intestinal disorders, especially different types of diarrhea.
According to Ayurveda, Kutajarishta is known to have Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestive) properties which help in controlling diarrhea. It also helps control water loss due to its Grahi (absorbent) and Kashaya (astringent) properties. The Kashaya (astringent) property of Kutajarishta also helps in dysentery by reducing the inflammation of the intestine. This property is also helpful to control bleeding caused by dysentery and IBS.
Kutajarishta is available in liquid/syrup form. You can take 15-20ml or 3-4 teaspoon Kutajarishta to get relief from diarrhea or dysentery. Mix it with equal amounts of lukewarm water to dilute its taste a little. Take it once or twice a day, preferably after meals.
Kutajarishta is generally well tolerated and does not have any side effects when taken in the recommended dose. However, it is advisable to consult the doctor before using Kutajarishta.
