Praval Pishti (Coral Calcium) Uses Benefits & Side Effects

What is Praval Pishti

Praval Pishti is an Ayurvedic and scriptural medicine prepared from coral. Praval is called coral in English. To make Praval pishti, pure coral is processed with edible rose water to make Praval Pishti for 21 days.

If we compare the coral pishti to the coral bhasma, then the coral pishti is more gentle and milder than the coral bhasma, because it is made by processing it with rose water. On the other hand, praval bhasma is made by processing it in fire, hence the nature of the praval bhasma is warmerthan praval pishti.

It is used prominently in tuberculosis, cholecystitis, hepatitis, cough, eye diseases, phlegm diseases, hyper acidity, excess of bile, calcium deficiency and children’s diseases. This drug is also used in problems caused by excessive cough, excessive sweating, burning sensation in urination, frequent thirst etc.
