The number of platelets in the blood is referred to as Platelet Count and the normal range of platelet count is 1,50,000 to 4,50,000 per micro liter of blood. The platelet count less than 1,50,000 is termed as thrombocytopenia. The low platelet count has the symptoms such as bleeding from the gums, rash such as pinprick sized spots on the skin, nosebleeds, skin discolouration such as bruising and severe bleeding.
Planet Ayurveda has manufactured an herbal formulation as per the ancient texts. Bleeding disorders are classified among Raktpitta group of disorders.
Reference: Charak Samhita, Part 2, Chikitsa sthanam, Raktpitt chikitsadhyaya – 8
Meaning: Due to the intake of hot, bitter and sour food, there is a vitiation of Pitta dosha which gets mixed up with the blood tissue. Pitta is produced in the blood, but when it gets vitiated and mixes with blood, it vitiates the blood too. As a result, there is a production of heat in the blood and due to this heat, tissues such as muscles and blood get destroyed.
