Iramusu is a herbal plant that could be found in any part of Sri Lanka. While the entire plant is used to treat various ailments and illnesses, it’s roots contain Hemidesmine smilasperic acid. Although it is an aromatic herb it has a mild bitter taste. 


Benefits : Iramusu is a coolant and is therefore consumed to cool the body and to treat various conditions that occur due to the body’s warmth. These include ulcers, skin conditions, headaches and irregular menstruation cycles. It is also used to treat vaginitis. It is a healthy drink for those who don’t have any health conditions as well. 


Precautions : One is advised to seek medical help before consuming Iramusu as soon as one gets ill. This is because it may have a tendency to increase the amount of phlegm in your system as it is a coolant. 


Home remedies : 


Stomach ache : Grind the Iramusu root and take one teaspoon with milk twice a day.


Indigestion : Grind dried Iramusu roots and take quarter a teaspoon of powder with lukewarm milk or honey.


Inflammation : Make a paste using Iramusu root and apply twice or thrice a day.
