PUNARNAVA literally means the plant that makes one new again and has a special power to renew our health and vitality. It rebuilds the blood and strengthens the kidneys, improving their function and through revitalizing this key organ, aids in our overall health and vitality. Punarnava is particularly good for conditions of weal kidney function leading to water retention and edema. As a tonifying diuretic it is often combined with Gokshura.
Literally meaning in Sanskrit "the one that renews", Punarnava is well known in Ayurveda for its health promoting qualities. It is one of the best herbs for balancing and rejuvenating kapha and is an ingredient in most traditional kapha-reducing formulas. Punarnava is used to support proper function of the heart, liver and kidneys and to promote comfortable movement of the joints for those with kapha constitutions and imbalances. It promotes healthy weight management especially when one is prone toward easily gaining weight rather than losing it. Punarnava also supports the healthy elimination of urine and comfortable fluid levels in the tissues.
Punarnava gives flowers and fruits in rainy season. It has two varieties as described in ayurvedic text i.e white and red variety of Punarnava.one more variety i.e blue Punarnava can also be found as mentioned in other ayurvedic text named rajnighantu. It has been mentioned in the ayurvedic text that the white Punarnava variety is what we commonly call Punarnava i.e boerhaavia diffusa and the red Punarnava variety is Trianthema portulacastrum which is generally used to adultrate Punarnava roots. Thus white Punarnava is basically used for the medicinal purpose. The white variety of Punarnava works as all the three dosha (vata, pitta and kapha) shamak i.e. it suppresses all the three aggravated doshas whereas the red Punarnava variety aggravates the vata dosha and suppresses the pitta dosha. As a whole both the varieties of punaranava are laghu(light) and ruksha(dry) in properties. Punarnava also known by the botanical name of red hogweed is a very effective diuretic It works very well on the urinary system and it targets directly the damaged nephrons(kidney’s basic functional unit) which get damaged specially in cases of high blood sugar level i.e in diabetic people. Punarnava speeds up the filtration process of kidneys and flushes out the excessive fluids and other waste products Punarnava is very effective in treating obesity thus it is a very important ingredient for a variety of patent Ayurvedic medicines used to treat obesity. It also acts as anti-inflammatory drug. It is good for respiratory problems as well as it acts on the kapha dosha and thus suppresses the mucous formation. Thus Punarnava forms an integral part of many ayurvedic medicines that helps curing asthma, dysnoea and other breathing problems as it helps in the removal of mucus from the bronchial tubes. In conditions like pneumonia or dysnoea(difficulty in breathing) Punarnava is given along with Vacha(another Ayurvedic herb) As Punarnava works as a diuretic it can cure the conditions like Anasarca( i.e generalized body swelling). It can even be used in serious conditions like congestive cardiac problems. One of the Ayurvedic preparation that is used to treat anemia i.e. Punarnava mandoor has purnanava as an integral part .This preparation is used to increase the Hb levels in the body and thus cures iron deficiency anaemia. Punarnava along with other ayurvedic herbs as Rasna, Shunthi etc is used to treat swelling in conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. In such cases rasna works as analgesic, shunthi works as amahar i.e. does detoxification and Punarnava relieves the swelling. Punarnava works as a very good tonic as well in general debilities cases. It works as rasayana for the body as it rejuvenates the body by cleansing it with its unique property of flushing out the mala(toxins) from the dhatus(body tissues), balances the doshas and opening and nourishing the various body channels so that each and every tissue and cell of the body gets proper nutrition and keeps the body fit and fine.

About Gopala Ayurveda
The Hindi meaning Gopala is ‘The Nurturer of the Cow’. The cow is an auspicious blessing from Mother Earth for the good of all humankind. They who care for the blessings which our Mother has given us, care for the Mother herself. It is through this care that the bountiful provision which is our inheritance is enjoyed, preserved and multiplied for ourselves, our children and generations to come. This is our deepest desire and purpose: that all humanity may have life and have it more fully. Our name in every way reflects this desire and the means by which we propose to pursue it. It is for this reason that we use only 100% organically grown, harvested, and processed herbs in our products, support sustainable economics, and endeavor to continue the millennia old tradition of natural and holistic science.
The roots of Gopala Ayurveda reach deep into the rich and ancient naturopathic tradition of Ayurveda. Utilizing the wisdom of this four thousand year old science with the technological potential of modern science we render these ancient formulations in a potent form, all the while maintaining faithful adherence to the formulae and therapies of the ancient texts.
