Khadiradi Vati (Gutika) is an ayurvedic and herbal remedy used for mouth ulcer, pharyngitis (sore throat) and other diseases of teeth, gums, tongue and throat.
Khadiradi Vati acts as oral antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, astringent and expectorant. Therefore, it is beneficial especially in sore throat and tonsillitis or infections of tonsils.
Benefits & Medicinal Uses
Khadiradi Vati is mainly useful for reducing hoarseness and throat irritation. Some of its important benefits and medicinal uses are as follows:
Laryngitis (Hoarseness or Loss of Voice)
The anti-inflammatory and soothing action of Khadiradi Vati reduces inflammation of larynx (voice box). It provides a clear voice and reduces hoarseness by reducing irritation and swelling of vocal cord. If hoarseness is caused by overuse, then Ashwagandha Churna or Ashwagandha extract should also be used with milk in addition to Khadiradi Vati.
Sitopaladi Churna, Yashad (Jasad) Bhasma and Gandhak Rasayan with honey should also be used with Khadiradi Vati for quick relief.
Mouth Ulcers & Stomatitis
Khadiradi Vati reduces pain and burning sensation associated with mouth ulcer. It reduces inflammation of mucus membranes, which gives relief in Stomatitis. For best results, Mulethi (Yashtimadhu) should also be used in such condition.
Sore Throat (Pharyngitis)
In combination with Sitopaladi Churna, Yashad (Jasad) Bhasma and Gandhak Rasayan, taking Khadiradi Vati provides quick relief in sore throat by its emollient (soothing) action. In addition to this, Khadiradi Vati also inhibits the growth of bacteria, which may be a cause of sore throat.
Tonsillitis & Tonsils Infections
Khadiradi Vati may not alone work in tonsil infections, so it is used along with Sitopaladi Churna, Yashad (Jasad) Bhasma and Gandhak Rasayan. However, it helps reduce irritation, pain and inflammation of the tonsils.
Effect on Tridosha
It balances all doshas.
1 to 4 tablets to be taken in the morning and evening. Not more than 12 tablets in a day.
