GOKSHURA is effective in treating most urinary tract disorders. It promotes the flow of urine, cools and soothes the membranes of the urinary tract and aids in the discharge of stones. It stops bleeding, strengthens kidney function, and nourishes the kidneys. It also strengthens the reproductive system by increasing semen. It is a good harmonizing herb for most kidney formulas. It is sattvic (increasing mental and spiritual perception) in nature and promotes clarity. Taken as a milk decoction, it is a strong aphrodisiac. The oil is good for premature balding.
