96 vegetarian capsules of organic Manjistha (Rubia cordifolia )with Gokshura.
Manjistha is an Ayurvedic plant renowned for its ability to bring health to the skin, particularly when pitta or kapha excesses may be present. It will leave the complexion bright, glowing, and radiating health from the inside-out. It is veryhelpful to relieve lymphatic congestion.
It can correct imbalances in the menstrual cycle. It helps balance excess kapha congestion and occasional discomfort, as well as excess heat and irritation from pitta, while helping to promote a healthy flow. When there may be kapha congestion and occasional discomfort in the cycle, manjistha mixed with shatavari can help soothe and correct the imbalance.
It has been used traditionally by Ayurvedic practitioners to help support healthy pregnancies (please consult your Ayurvedic physician if you’re interested in learning more about this).
It is definitely indicated when there is excess pitta in the mind and emotions. Thanks to its cooling effect, it can calm down heated emotions.
Gokshura is known in Ayurveda to clean the bladder and genitourinary tract. It supports overall physical, as well as sexual, strength by building all the tissues.

Western research of this ancient Ayurvedic plant medicine:
This study finds a favorable comparison with milk thistle and manjistha in protecting the liver. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16213120
This study examines The protective effect of Rubia cordifolia against lead nitrate-induced immune response impairment and kidney oxidative damage. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3153710/
This study shows that a tincture will reduce the blood sugar level. Effect of alcoholic extract was also investigated on cold restraint induced stress and on memory impairment. Alcoholic extract enhanced brain gamma-amino-n-butyric acid (GABA) levels and decreased brain dopamine and plasma corticosterone levels. Acidity and ulcers caused due to cold restraint stress were inhibited by alcoholic extract. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17176672
