NATURE'S GIFT TO WOMAN
Manjakani is a popular herb used in female hygiene wash. So what exactly is it? To find out, read the article below...
What is Manjakani?
Oak Gall (manjakani in the Malay language) is not a type of fruit or from any part of a tree. It is actually round-shaped abnormal growth found only on a few species of trees in the world. Oak Gall is the result of natural chemical reaction between the tree's bark and secretion from various insects that use parts of the tree to lay its eggs.
The metamorphosis process that takes place on the hatched insect's eggs produce enzymes that stimulates food supply on the leaves' cells, and a hard round "ball" is formed. It is neither part of the insect nor tree. This "ball" is known as Oak Gall.
Oak Gall is known as a natural astringent that contains antiseptic materials and anti- oxidants: a truly generous gift from Mother Nature to women. Studies have shown that manjakani is rich in tannins, vitamin A and C, calcium, gallic acid, fiber, protein and carbohydrates. Oaks galls possess a unique kind of astrigency which acts to restore health, tone and vigor in the vagina. Well-known since ancient times, Arabs, Persians, Indians, Chinese and Malays have traditionally used oak galls for treatmeant after childbirth, as well as to treat vaginal discharge and related infections.
Women in Asia have traditionally been using Oak Gall after giving birth to tighten their vaginal tissue and strengthen the womb for better sex after childbirth.
How does it work ? The Oak Gall extract can tighten the erectile tissue layers of the vagina and at the same time, restore suppleness and rejuvenates the nerves in the vagina, hence increasing sexual pleasures and ultimately resulted in better intimate sex.
The unique properties of oak galls are extremely beneficial to women. Its strong astringent properties give instant tightening effects on vaginal walls. Its ability to fight free radicals helps to tone up vaginal walls and helps reverse loss of elasticity caused by ageing, hormonal changes and childbirth. It also helps to ward off unwanted microorganisms.
This tuber contains exceptionally high concentrations of phyto-estrogens, and is excellent for stimulating the "Bartholon" glands to release estrogen and restore a woman's natural lubrication. Phyto-estrogen increase blood flow to the vagina and introduce estrogen-like biologiocal effects. Regular use of Pueraria mirifica may restore vaginal tissue growth, strength and elasticity.
Nature's Gift to Women
As women age, the vaginal lining thins, causing irritation, painful intercourse, increased risk of yeast and bacterial infections. "Manjakani" (oak gall) has been proven to help restore the health of the mucosal tissue, reducing these problems. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, manjakani also aids in healing external tissue damage after childbirth. It can be used externally to reduce swelling and bruises caused by minor injuries in the vaginal area. Clinical trials have demonstrated that it also enhances sexual responsiveness and intimacy.
Research has also shown that Manjakani extract has natural antiseptic properties that are effective in eliminating bacterial, yeast and fungal infection, the main causes of itching and unpleasant odors in the intimate area. Its astringent properties assist in reducing excessive discharge.
Frequent bacterial or fungal infections and the use of harsh soaps can cause discoloration (darkening) of the delicate skin in the intimate area. Manjakani helps to maintain the natural color of this area. It also contains unique antioxidant properties that are effective in reducing melanin formation and preventing discoloration.
