In Sanskrit, Punarnava means to “bring back to life,” or “renew,” because the ancients observed that a dry, dead Punarnava plant could suddenly spring to life. The Punarnava plant, also known as Spreading Hogweed, thrives in poor soil.
The Punarnava herb is a “rasayana,” meaning it rejuvenates the body by flushing toxins from dhatus, or body tissues, and helps nourish cells. Punarnava root has been used as an Ayurvedic food to alleviate fluid retention, or “ama.”
Punarvana Body and Mind Benefits
In classical Ayurveda, Punarnava has been used to support healthy heart, lung, and kidney function and reduce edema, or “ama” in the form of excess fluids. This herb is believed to be hepato-protective, meaning that it supports healthy liver function by protecting the organ from toxins. It may promote the reduction of toxins in all parts of the body, and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat obesity and kidney damage due to high blood sugar. One clinical study concluded that Punarnava had a “beneficial effect in [geriatric] patients with anemia,” echoing Ayurveda’s description of the herb as a “renewer.”
