Manjistha [Rubia Cordifolia]

Manjistha (Rubia cordifolia) is the ideal blood purifier in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia.

The herb removes excess heat and natural toxins from the blood, helping to support healthy skin, stimulate the lymphatic system and revive sluggish blood circulation. Because of its powerful effect on the lymph system, Manjistha is considered one of the best herbs for healthy skin.

The abundance of antioxidants in this herb can potentially help to treat eczema, reduce wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and give the skin an overall youthful appearance.

The powdered root of Manjistha is effective against acne-causing bacteria and can help prevent outbreaks.
