Kalmegh is helpful to cleanse the liver and in cases of cirrhosis of the liver. Kalmegh is helpful to cleanse the liver and in cases of cirrhosis of the liver. “The results of our study suggest that Kalmegh extract protects alcohol-induced toxic-effect in liver tissue.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6672491
The study indicates that the regenerative capability elicited by kalmegh is possibly due to its ability to reactivate liver function enzymes that catalyze the reaction of several biochemical and synthetic processes and that it may be useful for severe liver damage conditions. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19679627
“Oral administration of a single dose of kalmegh leaf extract to adult male albino rats produced a dose-related and time-dependent characteristic activation of brush-border membrane-bound hydrolases, viz. lactase, maltase and sucrase in three regions of small intestine… Maximum stimulation of lactase and maltase was noted after 30 consecutive days of treatment while sucrase exhibited maximum activation after 15 consecutive of treatment with either KE or A. These results suggest that both KE and A accelerate intestinal digestion and absorption of carbohydrate by activating these intestinal disaccharidases. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3938507

Many people drink to relax. This form of alcohol use treats alcohol as a psychoactive drug. It is a chemical that can cross the blood-brain barrier and act on an individual’s central nervous system to change brain functioning. Changes in mood, perception, cognition, consciousness and behavior. There are other choices – more sustainable, healthy choices – that are better for relaxation and development of real happiness through the development of consciousness.
Alcohol - The Opposite of Ojas. Ojas is one of the three vital essences that together promote and sustain our physical vitality, mental clarity, and overall health. The qualities of alcohol are laghu (light), ushna (hot), tikshna (sharp), suksma (subtle), amla (sour), vyavaayaaaal (pervading all of the body), aasuuga (swift), ruuksha (rough), vikaasa (expansive), and visada (drying).
Ayurveda makes clear that alcohol quickly and easily reaches the heart and has a direct effect on the ten qualities of the body’s most subtle essence, ojas. Because its qualities are opposite those of ojas – which has a direct effect on the sattva, or purity of the mind – alcohol causes agitation or intoxication. The heart, which is the seat of many of the important qualities of the body necessary for life, is afflicted by the excessive intake of alcohol.
Long-term use of alcohol in excessive quantities is capable of damaging nearly every organ and system in the body. The developing adolescent brain is particularly vulnerable to the toxic effects of alcohol.
Ethanol, the main type of alcohol in beverages, acts as a central nervous system depressant and has psychoactive effects in small amounts. Cell membranes are highly permeable to alcohol, so once alcohol is in the bloodstream it can diffuse into nearly every biological tissue of the body. Based on its abilities to change consciousness, ethanol is classified as a psychoactive drug.
The effects of alcohol on humans have been well researched and documented. Alcohol consumption at low or moderate doses acts primarily as a modulator of the neurotransmitter GABA. Activation of GABA receptors causes experiences such as relaxation, relief from anxiety, sedation, ataxia, increase in appetite, lowering of inhibitions and in some people violent behavior. There is a strong correlation between high levels of alcohol consumption and an increased risk of developing alcoholism, cardiovascular disease, malaborpstion, chronic pancreatitis, alcoholic liver disase and cancer. Damage to the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system can occur from chronic alcohol abuse.
