Health and Beauty Benefits of Nithya Kalyani






Nithya kalyani is an evergreen herbaceous plant that belongs to the Catharanthus species. Also known as rose periwinkle, nithya kalyani is distinct for its glossy, oval leaves and white, pink to purplish flowers with dark red center. This flowering shrub is endangered in the wild but is widely cultivated in tropical countries. In Asia, nithya kalyani is a mainstay in many gardens but in India, it’s been used since ancient times as medicinal herb.
Nithya kalyani contains more than 70 alkaloids, many of which are known to enhance health. The plant contains powerful vinblastine called vincristine and reserpine. Vincristine cuts the risk of cancer and reserpine lowers blood pressure.
Do note that although the herb is prized for its medicinal properties, it’s also highly toxic when consumed fresh. It has to be processed in order to enhance its efficacy in treating various illnesses.

In the Philippines and China, the plant is boiled for several minutes and consumed daily to help manage insulin level in the body and minimize high blood pressure. Although clinical research about nithya kalyani’s glucose regulating abilities is limited, some tests do suggest that the plant helps in normalizing blood sugar levels.
