Chitrak Haritaki also called Chitraka Haritak Avaleha is an Ayurvedic formulation used to treat respiratory conditions like asthma and chronic rhinitis. It may also be helpful in managing cough, cold, and difficulty breathing (dyspnoea)[1,2]. It is also helpful in improving digestion power, treating bloating, and managing intestinal worms.
According to Ayurveda, Chitrak Haritaki helps balance Kapha-Vata and remove excess mucus from the lungs, thereby providing relief from the symptoms of asthma. These properties also aid in clearing out the air passage by helping release mucus from the lungs. Release of sputum/mucus from the respiratory tract helps in cough, cold, problems like bronchitis, and allergic rhinitis. Chitrak Haritaki also helps reduce Ama by improving digestive fire. This further helps in managing indigestion and controls the growth of worms infestation.
Chitrak Haritaki is available in herbal jam form. You can take 5-6 gm Chitrak Haritaki or as directed by the physician to manage the symptoms of asthma or cough. Take it once or twice a day, preferably after meals with milk. Avoid self-medication or taking Chitrak Haritaki in excess.
Chitrak Haritaki is generally well tolerated and does not have any side effects when taken in the recommended dose. However, it is advisable to consult the doctor before using Chitrak Haritaki.
