What is Green Chiretta?
Green Chiretta, known as “Kalmegh” and “King of Bitters,” is used mainly to protect the liver against free radicals (known to cause liver disease) because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. It works to boost immunity and relieve the symptoms of the common cold, allergies, and sinusitis. Additionally, it lowers blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion, therefore, is good for helping diabetics. Green Chiretta powder may be applied to skin to decrease eczema, boils and skin infections because of its antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. Since it is bitter in taste, it is recommended to consume it in diluted form or with some sweetener. Finally, it widens the blood vessels and increases blood flow, helping those with high blood pressure.
