Many consumers are willing to try out Baidyanath Products Shankapushpi (and similar products for that matter), due to the lack of side effects and to the more often than not affordable price. We however recommend medical advice prior to starting treatment with any supplement, irrespective of the ingredients contained.
- The ingredients are plants with little associated side effects
- The manufacturer is one of the first companies to mass market Ayurvedic products (expertise and know-how)
- The main ingredients have long been used to treat cognitive issues and stress-related problems
- There is a general lack of research on the product
- Lack of information offered by the manufacturer
Baidyanath Products Shankapushpi is one of the many Ayurvedic products out there. The most important ingredient (the Shankapushpi plant) has gained popularity as consumer trends tend to shift toward herbal, natural remedies, less intrusive to their bodies.
However, the product is not researched and is not FDA approved. The main ingredients seem to be safe, as research conducted up to date has not identified harmful side effects. The effectiveness of the product is a matter of subjective assessment to this point. For precautionary reasons, we recommend the advice of a healthcare provider before starting using the supplement.
