Today's topic for discussion:  Pippali (Lindi pipar) or piper longum…. the miracle #ayurveda herb

Vd. Manhar Prajapati: I tried in hypothyroid… pt conceived after many years of marriage

Dr Dipak Shirude: Some patients suffering from recurrent URTI ( i.e. pranvah strotas vyadhi ) were treated satisfactorily with vardhamaan pippali Rasayan as well as chausashti pippali ..Pippali is widely used in various kalpas and have wonderful role on Agnee !! Pippalimul was used by me for sleep . stress etc disorders related to brain activities ... Nowadays I do not use choornas hence not used as before ...

Vd. Ajay Pithiya: Vardhman pippali in shitpitta is best

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Pippali has no nutritional value, it works on Agni.. Pippali is very good aam pachak..so its used in condition of Ama, and almost all auto immune disorders..

Vd. Manhar Prajapati: Shante agne mriyate...when agni balance than all is well...

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani:  Got extra ordinary results in Aamavat, sjogren…..
Pippali and jaggery are very Good in condition of Ajirna..it also useful in vardhamankrama in vatarakta

Vd. Prerak Shah: Pippali + ghee - very good vajikaran

Vd. Pankaj Chhayani: Pippali is yogwahi, pippali is imp content of trikatu. Trikatu is ingredient of many many ayurveda preparation. Yes sir pippali is very good Vrishya..pippali is good where Oligospermia is due to rasa ksaya…In ancient time, I think pippali is important herb of dietary article. So why charaka has described it in Annapana adhyaya... Further charak deny to use it (also alkali and salt) for long time in viman sthana. But for treatment purpose it can be used..as pippali is aapatbhadra-it can cause beneficial effect as well as harmful effect very quickly…Its Yogavagi- mean good Carrier for other herbs when its used with in combination….For vajikarana pippali should be used with anupan of milk and ghee…For kaphaj vyadhi, it should used with honey

Dr. Hardik- MD: Pippali has anushnshit virya and madhur vipaka so we can use pippali in all kind of auto immune disorder like rheumatoid arthritis, nephritic syndrome, cirrhosis of liver, sjogran syndrome, renal tubular acidosis etc. In our ayurveda we can take immunity as Prakrit kafa (bala) so in auto immunity disorder, immunity (bala) is bhransh(misguide) from its work. So in all kind of bala bhransha condition we can give rasayana therapy. So pippali is one of them rasayan dravya. So in this condition best way of pippali is used by vradhman prayoga with dugdha…Pippali is choice of drug for charak in sadhya vaman in javara, svasa, chardi roga

Vd. Bhavesh Thakkar: Nice interpretation..

Vd. Dhruti Kagrana: Other benefits of Pippali
-Cleanses the blood  -Increases digestion,Treats Manda Agni  -Treats skin disorders -Reduces Vata Nervous System disorders (anxiety, fear, worry, etc) -Enhances the memory and intellect (medhya) -Useful in epilepsy,headache..

Vd. Kinshuk Hirpara: 
Anticancer activity -à The alcohol extract of P. longum (10 mg/dose/animal) and piperine (1.14 mg/dose/animal) inhibits solid tumor development in mice induced with Dalton's lymphoma ascites cells and increases the life span of mice. Piperine was also found to be cytotoxic towards Dalton's lymphoma ascites and Ehrlich ascites carcinoma cells at 250 μg/mL [22 and 23].

Antioxidant activity-àP. longum exhibits promising antioxidant potential against free radical-induced oxidative damage. Petroleum ether extract of the root and piperine from roots of P. longum Linn. decrease lipid peroxide levels and maintain glutathione content, demonstrating antioxidant activity [24].

Hepatoprotective activity- àThe plant fruit extract was assessed in rodents for its hepatoprotective action against carbon tetrachloride-induced acute, chronic reversible and irreversible damage using morphological, biochemical, and histopathological parameters. The extract stimulates regeneration by restricting fibrosis, but offers no protection against acute damage or against cirrhosis. Piperine was found to protect against tertiary butyl hydroperoxide-induced and carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatotoxicity by reducing lipid peroxidation in vitro and in vivo [25 and 26].

 Anti-inflammatory activity - -àA marked anti-inflammatory activity of P. longum fruit decoction has been reported using carrageenaninduced rat edema
