Ayurveda medicine for treating gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a massive condition that may impact social and psychological aspects. The following are some ayurvedic medicines that can help in reducing gynecomastia. 

Arogyavardhini vati

Gynecomastia means the growth of tissue near your breast, which leads to enlargement of your chest area. This condition mainly happens when your body faces difficulty in metabolizing food properly. This further causes deposition. This medicine helps in boosting digestion and is also beneficial in absorbing nutrients properly. However, these medicines help in preventing fat accumulation. 

Tribulus Power

Hormonal imbalance is the major cause of breast enlargement. Sometimes, there may be an overproduction of estrogen in your bloodstream, which may cause puffiness near the nipples. In this case, having this capsule can be beneficial for reducing or treating this condition. Gokshura is the major ingredient of this medicine.

Guggul Capsules

Guggul is a substance that is frequently utilized in Ayurveda to make a variety of medications. A plant extract called guggul can help people lose weight and reduce their chance of developing high cholesterol. By acting as lipid regulators, these capsules can restore hormonal equilibrium. This medication is also recommended by doctors to lighten skin discolourations.

Hakam Churna

This medicine is recommended by ayurvedic doctors for the overall enhancement of your body. It works in curing all three types of doshas, which is known as tridoshin rasayan. This medicine has similar benefits as arogyavardhini vati. This medicine helps in better digestion which further helps in maintaining liver health.
