According to ayurveda, Kanakasavam is hot in potency and pacifies vata and kapha. It acts as expectorant. In addition, it reduces production of mucous inside the respiratory tract.
As per recent researches, Kanakasavam is anti-inflammatory, natural mucolytic and bronchodilator in action. It is used in bronchitis or COPD for reducing inflammation of respiratory tract or bronchi. It dilates bronchi and eases breathing. Due to this pharmacological action, Kanakasavam is drug of choice in acute asthmatic attack. It also works well in chronic problems related to difficulties in breathing.
This medicine, if taken along with Vasarishtam, shows remarkable results in both dry cough and productive cough.
Kanakasavam has analgesic and anti-colic action so it is beneficial in acute pain of kidney stones. To alleviate kidney stone pain, it is given in dose of 15 to 25 ml twice a day.
12 – 24 ml once or two times a day, usually after food.
Kanakasavam is prohibited in cases of glaucoma or any disease in which intraocular pressure is elevated. Always use this medicine under the strict supervision of qualified ayurvedic practitioner. Over dosage may result in side effects similar to datura poisoning.
