Supporting women’s health is one of the most valuable secrets of the female herbalists of Southeast Asia and Senduduk Plus contains several of these most treasured herbal extracts.
When the hormonal changes that occur before menstruation result in distressing symptoms, it is referred to as pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). Many symptoms that occur before and during menstruation are also aggravated by stress, overwork, being overweight and poor diet.
Female village herbalists, or Bidan kampung, play a major role in Malay and Indonesian traditional medicine and have developed specific remedies for the common female complaints. Select herbs are especially sought out in the jungles or grown in the village gardens to assist women’s health in the following areas:
- To relieve PMS and menstrual cramps
- For excessive menstrual bleeding
- Following childbirth to strengthen the womb and accelerate wound healing
- Tighten and tone the vagina and uterine tissue and muscle
- To relieve white discharge
- To relieve gas and bloating
SENDUDUK PLUS Jamu Capsules with Kacip Fatimah
The most sought after wild rain forest plant extracts to assist in these conditions are;
Senduduk (Melastoma malabathricum) is a small shrub of Southeast Asia with attractive purple flowers. This plant has a long tradition of use as a uterine tonic for female health care. The flowers, seeds and leaves are sweet and astringent and are traditionally used as a food and medicine for women following childbirth to strengthen the womb, relieve white discharge and accelerate wound healing. The herb has been found to contain high amounts of antioxidants, specifically quercetin and has shown potent anti-inflammatory, gastroprotective and pain relieving properties in laboratory studies.
Kachip Fatimah (Labisia sp.) is a small herb found in the rain forests of Malaysia and Borneo. It is one of the most well known herbs used throughout Malaysia for indications related to female health and as a tonic after childbirth. Traditionally the herb is believed to tonify laxity of the uterus and vagina, for which it is a much sought after remedy following delivery. It is also used to assist painful menstruation and to relieve wind and bloating. It contains phytoestrogenic compounds.
Kunyit (Curcuma longa) has been used as a medicine and spice for thousands of years. A native of the rain forests of Malaysia and South East Asia, it reveals a wide range of pharmacological and clinical activities. It contains various active constituents, including essential oils and curcumin. These constituents have antioxidant, liver tonic, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. For feminine health, Kunyit has been used traditionally in Malaysia for menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea), absence of menstruation, leucorrhea, as a tonic after childbirth and for sexual weakness.
Halia (Zingiber officinale). Familiar in kitchens around the world, Halia is native to Asia. Halia is sometimes referred to as the “herbal aspirin” for its ability to work as a powerful analgesic, circulatory stimulant and antispasmodic, relieving menstrual cramps and nausea.
