Swertia Chirata

Swertia Chirata

History – Swertia Chirata goes all the way back to Sanskrit times and is mentioned in the Charaka Samhita an ancient Ayurvedic healing text from India. Swertia Chirata was first brought to Europe in1839 and has been used ever since.

Ayurvedic Medicine – In Ayurvedic Medicine Swertia Chirata is called a tridosha balancing. It’s bitter, hot, pungent, and dry thus making it good for most conditions.

Grows – Swertia Chirata grows as a blue flowering plant that grows to 3 or 4 feet tall in the high Himalayas of Northern India and Bhutan.

Parts Used – All parts of the plants can be used for making either a dried herb or powder.

Bitter – Swerita is extremely bitter and because of that has many healing benefits. Because it’s very bitter taking Swerita in capsules is recommended… but it can also could be taken with some kind of sweetener like honey.

Fevers – Swerita is well known for swiftly lowering fevers from colds and flues.

Skin Disease – Swerita is great for rashes, inflamed skin, and other types of skin problems. Also works well when mixed with water for wound cleansing and healing… and it’s great for oozing skin.

Anti-Inflammatory – Swerita is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent making it great for joint disease, swelling, pain, and redness. Swerita is particular good for rheumatoid arthritis.

Liver – Swerita also works well for treating liver problems, and also does a good job of detoxing the liver. Swerita also increases metabolism thus helping with weight loss.

Constipation – Swerita is great for helping those who suffer from constipation.

Reducing Heat – Swerita has been used as an additive for clothes washing… because it creates a cooling sensation in hot weather.

Diabetes – Swerita has the ability to lower blood sugar, studies with rats given Swertia Chirata show blood sugar was greatly reduced. Swerita stimulates insulin production in pancreatic cells thus lowering blood sugar naturally… and it may be a cure for diabetes.

Anemia – Swerita can help the body produce more red blood cells like many different types of bitter herbs.

GI Tract – Swerita works well for soothing away stomachaches, nausea, GI upsets, gas, bloating, diarrhea, and inflammation of the intestines. Rats with gastric ulcers significantly improved when given Swerita because it slows the production of acids in the stomach.

Bleeding – Swerita helps with heavy monthly periods, internal bleeding, and nose bleeds.

Lung Conditions – Swerita helps with bronchitis, asthma, and inflammatory conditions of the lungs by opening up the bronchi.

Powerful Antioxidant – Swerita contains powerful antioxidant compounds that help to slow the aging process, repair DNA damage, plus prevent cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer.

Cancer – Swerita has the ability to protect against cancer because of powerful antioxidant compounds that stop the progression of  precancerous lesions… especially liver cancer.

Antiviral – Swerita is a very good antiviral compound that helps with herpes and possibly papilloma virus.

Contains – Swerita contains powerful antioxidants, alkaloids, and glycosides such as xanthones, palmitic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, chiratanin, xanthone, swertiamarin, amarogentin, chiratol, gentiopicrin, swertanone, swerchirin, and many more powerful compounds.

Dose – Most people recommend taking 0.5 to 2 grams of the whole plant per day, and if made into a tincture of 1:1 ratio taking 2 to 5 mls per day.

Finding – If you google “Buy Swertia Chirata” lots of places will come up, or ask for Swertia at your local health food store.

      Animal Protein Linked to Increased Risk for Type 2 Diabetes

      Animal protein increases risk for type 2 diabetes, according to a study published online in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Researchers monitored protein intake from animal and vegetable sources and diabetes incidence rates in more than 200,000 participants from the Nurses’ Health Study, the Nurses’ Health Study II, and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study. Those who consumed the highest amount of animal protein increased their risk for type 2 diabetes by 13 percent, compared with those who consumed the least animal protein. Participants who replaced 5 percent of their protein intake with vegetable protein, including potatoes, legumes, and grains, decreased their risk for diabetes by 23 percent.

  3. tarun says:

    this herb reduce acne

    • Hi-Tarun,

      I feel the best way to get rid of acne is to use Grampas Pine Tar Soap 2 or 3 times a day– and also keep from our hands away from our face – our hands have lots of bacteria on them and that causes acne. – Also staying away from caffeine and chocolate is important and eating a good diet full of fresh fruits and veggies is important.

      Many Blessings My Friend

  4. Petriene says:

    Hello. Can it help with small intestinal bacteria overgrowth for hydrogen and methane producing bacteria, dysbiosis and constipation?

  5. Can pregnant women consume Chirata? Is there any studies to show side effects or is the herb safe during pregnancy?

    • Hi-James,

      The only thing I recommend for those who are pregnant, nursing, or small children is lots of Organic Food and Water… everything can effect the fetus.

      Many Blessings My Friend

  6. Netra Bhandari says:

    very very important information i found

  7. rihan says:

    plz tell me chirata helps in reducing pimples.

    • Hi-Batrapanka — Not really – the best thing is to wash your face with Grampas Pine Tar Soup – you can find it on Amazon.com and they ship worldwide. Also using neem soap will help and neem oil on the face and then washing it off will help.

      Many Blessings My Friend

    Healthy Gut from Eating Plants Prevents Chronic Diseases

    A diet high in fiber from plant-based foods can enhance the activity and composition of the gut microbiota. According to a recent article published in Practical Diabetology, a diet high in whole grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables can reduce inflammation and prevent obesity and diabetes by enhancing the growth of healthy bacteria. A diet high in fat and animal products can lead to overgrowth of bacteria that cause inflammation and increase the risk of diabetes and certain types of cancer. Other healthy lifestyles choices such as exercising, getting enough sleep, and managing stress can also help. However, most experts agree that nutrition plays the most prominent role in improving gut health.
