Salacia reticulata or known as Ekanayakam or Saptarangi is a climbing, perennial, woody shrub widely distributed in Sri Lanka, India, China, Vietnam, Indonesia and other Asian countries. Salacia has been used in the Ayurvedic alternative medical practice to support relief from the symptoms of Joint pains such as rheumatism and high blood sugar levels, for many years.
Salacia’s principal use in traditional, ancient Ayurvedic medicine for controlling blood glucose levels is near-legendary; it was believed to be so potent that patients were told to simply drink water left to sit overnight in a cup made from the wood of the plant! Recently, Salacia was reported it may be a potential solution for overall fatness & its ill effects.
Salacia Reticulata appears to have the ability to reduce lipase enzymes and may reduce the rate of fat absorption after a meal which promotes suppression of triglyceride levels. Scientific studies confirmed the presence of Saponins in Salacia reticulata species which helps to promote blood cleansing, lowering blood sugar levels, and supports healthy skin, clearing the toxic wastes.
In addition, Salacia or Ekanayakam supports lowering levels of systolic, diastolic, and mean blood pressure values when taken in recommended dosage. Further, scientific animal study has revealed the usefulness of Salacia in fatty degeneration & inflammation of liver cells.
