Nilavembu Kudineer – A Research Study
A poly herbal formulation is a decoction concentrate widely used in siddha medicine to combat the majority of fevers.
For centuries, the traditional physicians practising siddha system of medicine have advocated this for the prevention and treatment of pitha suram. Some research and clinical studies conducted also prove the effect of Nilavembu decoction, in preventing the multiplication of the virus in humans
Background of the Study
- Dengue is the most prevalent arthropod-borne viral diseases in terms of morbidity and mortality in the recent
decade with the classic symptoms of high fever, headache as well as muscle and joint pain.
- The anti-pyretic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and immuno-stimulant effects of NK have been attributed to more than one ingredient in NK.
- The medicinal property of the NK can be also attributed to the combined effect of all photo chemicals present in these eight herbs.
- The current study encompasses the various chemicals and the activities of individual herbs but a thorough stereoscopic and chromatographic investigation is required to trace out the major phytochemical entities which are retained once the NK is prepared by the traditional methods.
