Shankapushpi – The Ayurvedic flower tonic of Auroville by Martin Gluckman

Shankapushpi (Evolvulus alsinoides ) is a beautiful herb used extensively in Ayurveda and famous throughout India for its ability to increase mental capacity and intelligence. The flower is shaped as the conch giving some indication of its indicative power. It has a gentle bitter-sweet taste and the effect is cooling on the entire system. It has a special effect on the nervous system nourishing and balancing it throughout the body. It enters the micro channels in the mind (manovahasrotas) and has a anti-stress and nourishing effect on the entire mental system. Studies have shown how it improves mental capacity and helps with learning, retention and recall. It has an indirect effect on the reproductive system enhancing natural fertility.

The sage Charaka has listed Shankapushpi as the greatest tonic for increasing intelligence. In many extreme cases it has been used successfully for the treatment of autism, learning disorders and poor concentration and for students wishing to accelerate their capacity to retain and absorb new information. Yogis used it in Vedic times to study the Shastra.

It is a completely safe tonic which is prepared with jaggery giving it a refreshing cool sweetness. It should be in the home of every child in India to enhance ability to study as well as enhance creativity and meditative qualities.

It also has a secondary effect on the blood purifying it gently and thus is wonderful aid to all skin complaints as well as liver disorders. This is particularly true of stress related skin disorders.

Shankapushpi detoxifies and cools and has qualities that give natural balance to the climatic.

SPECIFIC ACTIONS:
