Benefits of Bhumi Amla: 

Benefits of Bhumi Amla Against HIV & Hepatitis B: 

  • Phyllanthus niruri stops the hepatitis B virus (HBV) from multiplying by preventing the virus’s genetic material from being replicated.
  • An aqueous extract of P. niruri can block HBV’s endogenous DNA polymerase by attaching to the virus’s surface antigen.

Bhumi Amla For Kidney Stones & Excess Uric Acid: 

  • The creation, nucleation, development, and aggregation of calcium oxalate crystals in the kidney is a prevalent condition that causes urinary calculi (stone) formation.
  • The extract of Phyllanthus niruri inhibits the growth and aggregation of calcium oxalate [CaOx] crystals in calculi.
  • The extract inhibits calculi formation while also altering their shape and texture.
  • It can produce a matrix-like material on the surface of prepared calculi, and it can change the appearance and texture of the calculus.
  • The extract is also given to hypercalcemic patients, as it lowers urine calcium levels and lowers excess uric acid in hyperuricemic individuals. 

Anti-cancer Activity of Bhumi Amla: 

  • Phyllanthus niruri has a strong potential for inhibiting cancer cell development and growth.
  • However, because it prolongs cancer formation in the skin and reduces its multiplicity and yield, Phyllanthus niruri intensifies two-stage skin carcinogenesis.
  • The combination of P. niruri’s cytoprotective impact on normal cells and cytotoxic effect on pre-neoplastic or neoplastic cells resulted in this action.
  • In addition, potent phytochemicals, such as quercetin and rutin were responsible for a significant reduction in the prevalence of skin papillomas.
