It helps reducing the formation of gas in the abdomen by correcting the digestive functions. It also works when AMA (Adhesive toxins) are present in the abdomen. These toxins cause bad smelly flatus. This is a common symptom of malabsorption and ill metabolism. Yogaraj Guggulu helps correcting metabolism and treats the malabsorption, which ultimately helps reducing flatulence and intestinal gas.

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): According to ayurveda, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) occurs due to lack of appropriate digestive fire or malfunction of digestive fire, which leads to AMA formation. However, Yogaraj Guggulu may not work for people with hard and dry stools, but it works well for people with following symptoms.
    • Abdominal cramps or pain.
    • Bloating.
    • Intestinal gas.
