Ayurveda/Hair Problems


Dear Dr.,

Thank you for answering my last query.

One more question to you :

I have been taking Himalaya's Kapikachchu for my low testosterone problems like 2 capsules twice daily for the past 6 months,although the indicated dosage given for this product is 1 capsule twice daily.I found Kapikachchu is very effective in raising my energy levels and I got cured upto 50 % of my problem.I want to know if there any side effect of taking these Kapikachchu capsules like greying of hair,beard as I think this might be a cause.Pl reply me.




There is no recorded side effects so far. Kapikachhu is very good herb for various stamina and Vata issues. You can continue taking. But it will be good to strict to company s recommended doses only.
Greying of hair I don't see any direct link with the herb. It depends how old are you, on your genetic structure and nutrition and stress levels.
