Abstract

A STUDY ON THE VARNAPRASADANA EFFECT OF KESARA [CROCUS SATIVUS LINN.] DURING INTRA-UTERINE LIFE OF A CHILD

Venkata Seshamma Katta* and M. Paramkusha Rao*

ABSTRACT

The aspiration for fair complexion is pronounced in a greater number of people in the present times. Colour complexion also indicates immunity and health. With natural products for complex promotion being more in demand than their synthetic counterparts. Research in the area of skin- complexion agents is an expanding field with the knowledge being updated regularly. In Ayurveda, varnya, raktaprasadhana, tvachya are few terms specifying skin complexion. The present review is undertaken for screening herb “KESARA” (Crocus sativus Linn.) to evaluate it’s probable modes of action through which the skin complexion is effected as per both Ayurveda and biomedical concepts. In this study 30 pregnant women between 22weeks to 34 weeks of gestational period who desires more complexion and more colour to their baby were selected after taking due consent. Kesara was made in to fine powder in khalwa yantra and mixed with raw sugar (ratio of Kesara: Raw sugar-1:44). 1gram of medicine has been given with navanita per day. This study is seldom seen. We found Kesara (Crocus sativus) a miraculous herb evaluated here to act as varnya directly or indirectly as per Ayurveda. Hence they can be potentially employed as effective skin-whitening agents, if it is administered in intra uterine life of baby then there will be no need of attention on cosmetics in future. This study has shown better result (94%) in colour enhancement of babies than colour of parents.

Keywords: Kesara, Varnya, Colour complexion, Colour enhancement.
