Malabar Nut (Vasaka)
Effective respiratory care

Vasaka (Malabar Nut Tree/Adhatoda zeylanica) is well known in Ayurveda for its beneficial effects in respiratory ailments, particularly as an expectorant in bronchitis. The leaves, flowers, fruits and roots are used extensively for treating cold, cough, whooping-cough, chronic bronchitis and asthma.

Malabar Nut grows throughout India, up to an altitude of 1,300 meters.

Active constituents:

Malabar Nut contains the pyrroquinazoline alkaloids, including vasicine, vasicol and vasinone along with other minor constituents. Vasicine and vasinone are the major bioactive constituents of Malabar Nut which have bronchodilatory and antitussive properties.

The alkaloids present in the plant show significant protection against allergen-induced bronchial obstruction.

Herb Functions:

Respiratory care: Malabar Nut exhibits anti-inflammatory, antitussive and bronchodilatory action which eases congestion and coughing by helping loosen and thin mucus in airways. Malabar Nut relieves dyspnea by dilating the airways and improves overall lung functions. The herb is an excellent supportive therapy for symptomatic relief in tuberculosis and pulmonary infections.
