Yashad Bhasma is prepared from zinc. It is a mineral based ingredient of various ayurvedic preparations. This medicine is not mentioned in old ayurvedic texts. Bhavaprakasha is the first ayurvedic text to mention about the use of Yashad (Jasad) Bhasma. It has been considered as one among important 7 elements (sapta dhatu)
Yashad bhasma is prepared by processing fine powder of zinc with aloevera juice. After the completion of this process the product is heated at high temperature to yield yashad bhasma.
Texts of Ayurveda describe the medicinal properties of yashad bhasma as follows
Yashad bhasma is bitter to taste and has cold potency. It balances kapha and pitta.
Its use is mainly indicated in conditions like eye diseases, diabetes, unhealed wounds, anaemia, tuberculosis, diabetes related erectile dysfunction (Read Ayurvedic Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction in Diabetes, ) , male infertility ( Read Supraja Lehyam-An Ayurvedic Medicine to Increase Sperm Count ) and impotence.
ROLE OF YASHAD BHASMA IN TREATING PCOS
Young women with PCOS often have elevated insulin levels and are more likely to develop diabetes. Insulin is a hormone produced by a digestive organ pancreas. When level of glucose is high in blood, insulin stimulates the body cells to absorb glucose from blood. Cells which have absorbed the glucose convert it to energy. This energy is used for our daily activities.
Sometimes body cells fail to respond to insulin. In this condition the blood glucose level increases and leads to diabetes.
In young women with PCOS, high insulin levels can cause the ovaries to make more androgen hormones such as testosterone. This can cause increased body hair, acne, and irregular or few periods. Having insulin resistance can increase the risk of developing diabetes.
Yashad bhasma helps to increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin. Thus it prevents the elevation of blood sugar level. This helps to control PCODS. It also helps to heal acne and pimples. Yashad bhasma is very helpful to control hair loss which occurs due to PCOS and it promotes hair growth. (Read Keshpride ayurvedic antidandruff hair oil to prevent hair loss and promote hair growth )
