What is Daruharidra?
Daruharidra, also known as “Indian barberry” or “Tree Turmeric,” has been part of the Ayurvedic medicine system for a long time. The fruit and stem are edible and a rich source of vitamin C. Daruharidra is mainly beneficial for skin problems such as psoriasis or inflammation because of its anti-psoriatic and anti-inflammatory ability. By preventing the growth of acne-causing bacteria, it works to manage acne and reduce inflammation. It maintains the level of liver enzymes, therefore protecting the liver and preventing liver disorders. Applying Daruharidra paste mixed with rose water and honey to a burn, speeds up the healing process. Because of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and hepatoprotective activities, it also protects the liver cells against damage caused by free radicals. Finally, Daruharidra works to aid symptoms that occur with Diarrhea and Malaria.
