Chandraprabha Vati is a common and popular Ayurvedic medicine particularly helpful for problems of the genitourinary tract in both men and women.
Chandra means moon, and like the moon, this preparation is meant to take away the darkness of the night – by purifying and rejuvenating naturally with the body’s own healing powers.
Chandraprabha Vati is a tablet made up of small amounts of many different herbs and minerals. It contains natural ingredients which help clear up urinary tract infections.
It is also taken to reduce inflammation and aggravation of the genitals and reproductive organs and it is often prescribed to ease symptoms of certain sexually transmitted diseases like syphilis and gonorrhea.
According to the website ayurmedinfo.com, Chandaprabha Vati balances all three doshas.
In addition to being used for a number of genitourinary problems, it is also recommended for diabetics because it affects glucose metabolism, insulin resistance and relieves diabetic neuropathy.
