Or is powder of bhringraj with water better?
Hi, the tablet form is fine for oral intake.
Kindly mention which doshas bhringrajasav is balancing to. How does it effects on vata pitta and kapha humour.
Because of its pungent, bitter taste, dryness and lightness, it balances Kapha Dosha. Because of its hot potency, it balances Vata. Hence, it balances Kapha and Vata Doshas.
