Ascites can be managed by Ayurvedic formulations including Neeri KFT

Ascites – a condition in which fluid clots in the abdomen – can be significantly managed by Ayurvedic formulations including Neeri KFT, according to a recent study.

Ayurvedic formulations, including AIMIL Pharmaceutical’s innovative herbal medicine Neeri KFT, not only helped save the kidney from further damage due to the disease, but also helped excrete fluid collected from the abdomen.

The observation was made by Assistant Professor Komala A, Professor Siddesh Aradhyamath and Researcher Mallinath IT from JSS Ayurveda Medical College and Hospital, Karnataka in the study published in “Journal of Ayurveda and Integrated Medical Sciences”. The researchers gave a range of Ayurvedic formulations as well as Neeri KFT, intended for failing kidneys, to patients with ascites admitted to hospital. “A dose of 20ml of this Ayurvedic formulation per day – morning and evening – was administered for a month,” the researchers said, adding that the result was positive.

The herbal medicines not only helped to protect the patients’ kidneys from further damage due to the disease, but also helped excrete the collected fluid from their abdomen. These drained fluid from the abdomen through the urinary tract, the researchers said. Neeri KFT is made up of herbs such as Punarnava, Varun, Sigru, Sariva, Makoi and Sirish which are also known for their diuretic properties.

Dr. Sanchit Sharma from AIMIL Pharmaceuticals pointed out that over the past few years, Neeri KFT has been shown to be effective in strengthening the kidneys and removing toxic fluids from the body.

Ascites usually occurs when the liver stops working properly or malfunctions, causing fluid to build up in the space between the abdominal lining and the organs.

It is the most common complication of cirrhosis (scarring of the liver). It affects about 60% of people with cirrhosis within 10 years of their diagnosis, and the 2-year survival rate is 50%.
