The ancient and holistic science of Ayurveda consists of numerous potent and effective formulations for various health conditions. One such concoction is the Trailokya Vijaya Vati, an incredible classic hemp medicine in India. This formulation uses Vijaya, or the hemp plant, as its main ingredient, hence the name.
This herb is well-known for its wide-ranging therapeutic benefits and quick, effective, and holistic action on the system. Besides that, the other prominent ingredient in this ayurvedic medicineis Vansh lochan or Bambusa arundinacea. Let us look at these ingredients in detail and understand what makes them so potent and beneficial.
The Divine Vijaya
Vijaya, or the hemp plant, is the main ingredient in Trailokya Vijaya Vati and a highly revered herb in Ayurvedic medicine. It has been mentioned in ancient texts, including the Rig Veda, Atharva Veda, Charaka Samhita, Shargandhara Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, Anandakanda, etc. It has long been used to help alleviate and prevent all kinds of health conditions, such as-
- Chronic pain
- Cancer pain
- Digestive issues (appetite loss, indigestion, IBS, IBD, constipation, diarrhea, GERD)
- Nausea or Vomiting
- Autoimmune diseases (Crohn’s, Ulcerative Colitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Type 1 diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis)
- Mental health problems (depression, anxiety, stress/PTSD)
- Nervous system disorders (epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s)
- Menstrual pain and cramps
- Sexual health issues
Why Is It So Effective?
Vijaya’s efficacy is derived from its direct action on the body’s endocannabinoid system or the ECS. It contains cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 spread throughout the body. Most of the CB1 receptors are a part of the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord), while the CB2 receptors are primarily concentrated in the immune system.
The medicinal compounds in Vijaya (cannabinoids) bind to these receptors in the body and directly influence numerous vital bodily functions. The activated CB1 receptors allow Vijaya to regulate the body’s nervous system and its pain-processing pathways to prevent the transmission of pain signals.
This makes the hemp plant immensely beneficial for alleviating acute and chronic pain conditions. Besides that, by binding with and activating the CB2 receptors in the immune system, the herb prevents the immune cells from producing pro-inflammatory cytokine and chemokine cells.
This helps reduce inflammation and alleviate various inflammatory health conditions, including IBDs, and autoimmune diseases.
The Scientific Perspective
Experts around the world have conducted numerous studies on the wide-ranging therapeutic benefits of Vijaya and its derived hemp medicines in India:
A recent study showed that Vijaya promotes healthy gut bacteria, boosts metabolism, enhances the immune function in the gut, reduces inflammation, maintains a healthy nervous system, and improves communication between the gut and the brain. By influencing the gut bacteria and interacting with the cannabinoid receptors there, the herb helps alleviate digestive issues like constipation, diarrhea, stomach pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, IBS, etc.
Chronic pain relief
Another study affirms that consuming Vijaya leads to significant relief from chronic pain and improvements in sleep levels and quality. Moreover, it reduces the consumption of harmful traditional pain killers and addictive opioids by over 64% among patients and alleviates their treatment side effects.
As per research, Vijaya improved anxiety symptoms in over 92% of the patients. Besides that, over 72% of the patients reduced their intake of traditional anti-anxiety drugs. Over 61% of patients report that the herb had completely replaced their prescription medications.
Research further indicates that the hemp plantinteracts with the ECS to prevent and alleviate severe health conditions, including cancer. It can effectively reduce cancer cell multiplication and tumor growth. Furthermore, Vijaya is immensely beneficial for alleviating post-operative pain among cancer patients and providing palliative care by stimulating appetite, relieving nausea, alleviating pain, and soothing anxiety.
The Benefits of Vansh Lochan
Vansh lochan, or Bambusa arundinacea, has a very high medicinal value in ayurvedic medicine for its strengthening and adaptogenic (helping the body adapt to stress) properties. It has a restorative and cooling effect on the body’s tissues. The herb triggers the immune system and enhances its function.
Vansh lochan is incredibly effective in alleviating nail, skin, hair, dental and immune disorders, among many others. It gives elasticity and strength to collagen, connective tissue in the bones, tendon, cartilage, and skin.
Silica, a key component in this herb, is a vital mineral for bone growth, development, and proper calcium usage. Due to this, Vansh lochan-
- Strengthens the skeletal system
- Speeds up the healing of fractures
- Prevents injuries to the teeth and bones
- Reduces the risk of conditions like osteoporosis (weak and brittle bones), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, painful joints, low bone density, etc.
Besides enhancing bone health, this herb helps alleviate stomach flatulence, diarrhea, ulcers, Crohn’s disease, and other digestive woes. Vansh lochan is so rich in natural silica that it stimulates hair growth, gives luster and volume to them, and prevents thinning of hair and hair loss.
It enhances blood flow to the hair follicles, nourishes them, and strengthens them from deep within. Because of its anti-oxidant and detoxifying properties, this herb flushes out toxins from the system. It has an anti-inflammatory action similar to Vijaya, which helps prevent breathing issues and improves lung function by reducing inflammation in the respiratory organs.
Vansh lochan has an expectorant characteristic, which means it supports proper expulsion of mucus through the lungs via the air passages. This makes it effective for alleviating conditions like chest disorders, bronchitis, the common cold, and asthma.
What Do The Studies Say?
Here are some of the many scientific studies conducted over the years on the efficacy of Vansh lochan:
A study affirmed that Vansh lochan contains various valuable compounds like flavonoids, polyphenols, tannins, coumarins, and terpenoids. The tannins exhibit anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-tumor, and antibacterial properties.
Moreover, the Flavonoids in the herb showed strong antioxidant and antibacterial properties that help prevent various microbial diseases like diarrhea, stomach pain, cough, and pneumonia. Furthermore, the silver nanoparticles extracted from this herb bind with the protein on the cell walls of the harmful bacteria. This disturbs their function and kills them.
Another study found that this herb protects the liver and enhances its function due to its potent antioxidant property. Moreover, its action is comparable to conventional prescription drugs while being safer than the latter.
Vansh lochan is also seen to improve sexual receptivity and fertility. Its carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, steroids, and flavonoids help enhance the overall health and function of the reproductive organs.
Besides, it is immensely effective for alleviating chronic inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and peptic ulcers because of the herb’s anti-inflammatory and anti-ulcer activities.
In addition to flavonoids, the herb is rich in antioxidants, quercetin and caffeic, vanillic, chrologenic, ceramic, and gallic acids. These constituents help reduce toxicity in the kidneys created due to harmful medications and chemicals and thus improve their overall function.
Besides the efficacy of these ingredients, their herbal nature makes Trailokya Vijaya Vati safe for consumption, without any adverse side effects on health, unlike conventional prescription drugs.
