Manjakani Pure Powder
Traditionally known as Manjakani, the nut-gall of the Quercus infectoria tree has been used in traditional medicine for feminine health and hygiene since ancient times.
Manjakani is rich in tannins known as gallotannins that possess a potent anti-oxidant capacity, measured as ORAC > 40,000 µmol TE/g. In comparison the ORAC of green tea is less than 1,500 µmol TE/g. It is also high in astringent tannins and is used to tighten and tone pelvic muscles, accelerate healing after childbirth and to prevent bacterial infections, white discharge and diarrhea.
Our Rainforest Herbs Manjakani Powder is prepared from the highest quality Manjakani Gall Nuts and finely powdered to improve absorption. No other added ingredients, only 100% pure Manjakani Gall Nut superfine powder.
How to use:
As as Manjakani Tea: Add one third of a flat teaspoon of Manjakani Powder in hot water or herb tea and sweeten to taste (as it is very astringent / sour). Drink twice daily. As with most herbs, not to be taken during pregnancy.
As a Douche: Manjakani douche to prevent white discharge. Make a strong decoction by boiling for 5 minutes and insert with a vaginal douche (available in pharmacies).
