Nyagrodhadi churna is polyherbal Ayurvedic formulation prepared from Nyagrodha (Ficus bengalensis) and twenty-seven other medicinal herbs. This churna or powder has multifaceted action on all 20 types of prameha or polyuria and diabetes.
Prameha word is derived from the Miha sechane (means watering). Pra means excess of urine in both quality and frequency. Thus Prameha means Prabhutha mutratha or excessive urination and Avilmutratha or turbid urine.
Ayurveda divides prameha in four major types (and total 20 types) ie Kapha (again divided in 10 types), pitta type (again divided in 6 types), Vata type (again divided in 4 types). All types of Prameha are diagnosed by frequency and nature of urine.
