Pravala (Corasl) are used in many Ayurvedic medicines in a processed form. Pravala are remains of marine coral organisms of class Anthozoa. Main constituent of these red corals is calcium carbonate. Coral branches are used as gems in ornaments, where as coral root – the porous structure as shown here; are used in Ayurvedic medicine.
Being a marine product, it is covered with many impurities like silica and chalk. To clean them we crush the coral into pieces, tie them in a cotton cloth and boil in lemon juice for 3 hours. There after we wash them with warm water and use for further processing. This Ayurvedic cleaning process is called “Shodhana” in Rasashastra.
We grind and triturate the coral with rose water for several hours to make its fine pink powder called as “Pishti”. When Pravala is processed with heat and aloevera juice we get white coloured Pravala Bhasma.
Pravala Pishti is used internally for debility, cough, epistaxis, excessive sweating, burning sensation in eyes and skin, hyperacidity etc. Also improves digestion, skin complexion and virility.
Pravala Pishti is non toxic and safe for internal use. Still judicious use under supervision of Ayurveda consultant is recommended.
