ASAFOETIDA is a powerful digestive agent, which removes food stagnation from the gastrointestinal tract. It is effective in breaking up impacted fecal matter and accumulations from excessive eating of meat or junk food. It destroys worms, particularly round worms and thread worms. Asafoetida cleanses the intestinal flora while strengthening agni (biological fire governing metabolism). It also dispels intestinal gas, relieves cramping and pain.
