Kanakasava, also known as Kanakasavam, is an Indian traditional Ayurvedic formulation used to treat lung-related problems including asthma, breathing difficulty, and coughing. It contains Datura (Datura metel), Vasa (Adhatoda vasica), Dhataki (Woodfordia fruticosa), and Grape (Vitis vinifera) as main ingredients helpful in treating various conditions and boosting immunity.
According to Ayurveda, Kanakasava helps balance Kapha and remove excess mucus from the lungs, providing relief from the symptoms of asthma. This Kapha balancing property also helps reduce the cough. It also helps remove dryness and release sputum out of the respiratory tract. This is due to its Vata and Kapha balancing properties. In addition to that, Kanakasava aid in reducing fever. This is due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestive) properties which aid in digestion and absorption of food, indirectly aiding in fever management.
Kanakasava is available in liquid/syrup form. You can take 15-20ml Kanakasava or as directed by the physician to get relief from the symptoms of asthma. Mix it with equal amounts of lukewarm water. Take it once or twice a day, preferably after meals. Kanakasava 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 Kanakasava.
