Benefits & Medicinal Uses

The effects of Shankh Bhasma appear on the abdomen including liver, spleen, gall bladder, small intestine, large intestine, colon, eyes and face.


Loose Motion or Diarrhea

Ayurveda doesn't 
suggest using any medicine initially to prevent loose stools. Therefore, Shankha Bhasma should be used when patient has passed a minimum of six stools or in moderate to severe diarrhea. Shankha Bhasma works well when patient has frequent stools with bit of stool, severe abdominal cramps and abdominal gas.


Indigestion, Heartburn, GERD

Shankh Bhasma may be a 
good acid neutralizer, which helps reducing hyperacidity within the stomach and should rectify the acid production.
In addition to neutralizing acid in the stomach, it also eliminates AMA toxins, which may also be associated with heartburn or indigestion.

Shankha Bhasma is simpler 
when patient has abdominal distension, heaviness within the abdomen, gas, nausea with feeling of eaten food or sour and burning sensation within the throat or mouth.


Abdominal Cramps or Pain

Shankha Bhasma has potent antispasmodic action on abdominal muscles. It reduces abdominal cramps, which may occur due to either diarrhea or any other underlying cause. However, Shankh bhasma works well with Praval pishti and Sootshekhar Ras in spasmodic dysmenorrhea.


Side Effects

Shankh Bhasma can cause fissure (fine cracks or cuts) on tongue when kept on tongue without mixing it with honey or the other 
remedy. Secondly, it may also cause constipation in some patients when it is used alone.

Therefore, adjuvant is extremely 
important for using shankha bhasma. The most appropriate adjuvants and combinations should be used for getting more benefits and preventing side effects.


Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

Shankh Bhasma might not 
be appropriate medicines during pregnancy when pregnant woman experience constipation. Shankh Bhasma is POSSIBLY SAFE for lactating mothers.



Constipation is the main contraindication for Shankh Bhasma. It is also used for local application for removing hair and treating acne and pimples. In such cases, the local application of Shankh Bhasma is contraindicated in fissured, cut or cracked skin.
