Vijaya has long been used to alleviate various kinds of painful and inflammatory health conditions. It exhibits robust pain-killing and anti-inflammatory actions and a quick, effective, and safe action mechanism.
Ayurvedic doctors and medical professionals prescribe this herb and its derived Ayurvedic medicines, like Trailokya Vijaya Vati, to their patients to help alleviate their different health conditions. This formulation is especially effective for ailments like endometriosis and menstrual cramps, two of the most common and severely painful conditions among women.
Let us look at these health issues in further detail and discover how Trailokya Vijaya Vati can help women effectively alleviate them.
Endometriosis comes from the word ‘endometrium,’ which refers to a tissue found inside the uterus, similar to its lining. It affects over 10% of women between 15 and 49 years of age, over 190 million women worldwide.
In this chronic condition, this tissue grows outside of the uterus, causing severe pain and inflammatory reactions. It leads to the formation of scar tissue within the pelvis and other body parts. It commonly involves the ovaries, fallopian tubes, pelvic lining, bladder, bowel, and the recto-vaginal septum.
Its common symptoms include
- Painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Severe abdominal pain
- Heavy bleeding
- Painful bowel movements
- Diarrhea and/or constipation
- Anxiety and depression
We don’t know the specific cause of endometriosis yet. But its potential causes include certain gynecological factors, environmental influences, inflammation, immune dysfunction, etc. Women have a higher chance of developing endometriosis if their mothers and/or sister(s) are affected by it.
Menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea) refer to severe throbbing or cramping pains in the lower abdomen. Many women have such cramps just before and during their periods. Over 80% of women worldwide experience such menstrual pain at some point in their lives. But in over 5%-10% of women, the pain is severe enough to disrupt their daily lives for a few days every month!
As mentioned above, dysmenorrhea can be caused as a symptom of endometriosis. Other conditions that can lead to menstrual cramps include
- Uterine fibroids (non-cancerous growths in the walls of the uterus),
- Adenomyosis (the uterine lining tissue growing into the uterus’ muscle walls),
- Pelvic inflammatory disease (Infection of female reproductive organs by sexually transmitted bacteria),
- Cervical stenosis (when the cervical opening is small enough to stop the menstrual flow and painfully increase pressure within the uterus).
Its common symptoms include
- Dull, continuous abdominal pain
- Pain going towards the lower back and thighs,
During menstruation, the uterus contracts to shed its lining. In this process, the body produces hormone-like chemical substances called prostaglandins. These substances cause the uterine walls to contract and the pain-sensing nerves to become much more sensitive.
This leads to severe pain and inflammation, and heavy bleeding. The higher the prostaglandins levels, the more severe the menstrual cramps.
Why Trailokya Vijaya Vati Can Help Alleviate These Conditions
Medical experts prescribe various conventional drugs for managing endometriosis and menstrual cramps. But they only focus on alleviating the symptoms and not the condition itself. And with increased consumption, they exhibit severe side effects on health, making them highly unsafe for usage.
Hence, Ayurvedic doctors prescribe consuming Trailokya Vijaya Vati, a classic Ayurvedic medicine with immense therapeutic properties. Trailokya Vijaya Vati uses Vijaya as a key ingredient, which makes it one of the most potent Ayurvedic formulations for alleviating painful conditions like endometriosis and menstrual cramps.
In the body, the endocannabinoid system or the ECS is a vital signaling system that regulates crucial bodily processes like mood, pain, inflammation, sleep, appetite, memory, metabolism, etc. It consists of endocannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors that the body produces naturally.
Due to an underlying disease or a genetic condition, when the endocannabinoid levels decrease in the body, it causes clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CED). It can lead to several health issues.
A recent study revealed that endometriosis is a consequence of CED. That is why women suffering from these conditions have lower levels of cannabinoid receptors in their endometrial tissues. When patients consume Trailokya Vijaya Vati, the chemical compounds in Vijaya supply the body with the necessary cannabinoids for the ECS to function efficiently.
They also activate and bind to the CB1 cannabinoid receptors in pain-processing regions of the central nervous system (brain and the spinal cord). It helps prevent the transfer of pain signals and decreases the abdominal pain sensations in the body.
This Ayurvedic medicine further targets the receptors in the uterine muscle walls to reduce the contractions and relax the smooth muscles. When the smooth muscles relax, the blood flow to the uterine tissues increases. It supplies the tissues with the necessary oxygen, improves their function, and alleviates painful cramps.
Besides that, Vijaya is an anti-inflammatory herb. It activates CB2, the cannabinoid receptors in the body’s immune system, and prevents the production of inflammatory immune cells like cytokines and chemokines.
Due to this activation of CB2 receptors, the herb helps the patients manage their digestive issues, such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, and bowel movement problems.
What the Studies Say
In a recent study, over 57.3% of endometriosis patients reported significant improvements in their pelvic pain. They also reported improvements in their gastrointestinal issues and mood.
A study conducted by researchers from the University of Otago in 2021 revealed that women have found using Vijaya to be more effective for relieving endometriosis-associated chronic pain than other over-the-counter prescribed medications. Among the patients examined, over 81% showed significant improvements in pain levels, 79% in sleep, and 61% in nausea or vomiting.
The study further showed that Vijaya caused over 81% of women to reduce their consumption of conventional medication. Whereas over 50% of women had completely stopped taking their traditional medications like harmful painkillers and addictive opioids.
Ayurvedic doctors and researchers have also found that Vijaya inhibits the enzymes that produce prostaglandins. This way, the herb decreases the production of prostaglandins and helps alleviate pain and inflammation associated with menstrual cramps. Moreover, it does not show adverse health side effects like conventional NSAIDs, anti-inflammatory drugs, and painkillers.
In a survey by the University of British Columbia, over 85% of women surveyed preferred using Vijaya for menstrual pain. And over 90% of them felt the herb to be effective for pain relief!
