Dashmool (Dasmool) – (Dashamoola Dashamula)

Dashmool is an ayurvedic medication prepared for the roots of ten herbs. The term Dashmool refers to Dasha, which means ten, and mool, which means roots. The combination of these ten roots offers potent medicinal properties, which are beneficial in the treatment and prevention of several disorders. It can be used to treat the conditions affecting the nerves, bones, muscles, and joints. This medicine produces powerful anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antioxidant actions. Hence, it is used to treat the painful, inflammatory conditions related to the musculoskeletal system such as osteoarthritis, gout, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Indications, Benefits, and Uses

The health benefits of this medicine are as follows:


Dashmool can be used to obtain relief from the joint pains caused due to osteoarthritis. This condition usually affects the weight-bearing joints such as the hips and the knee. The common symptoms of osteoarthritis include pain in the joint, restricted movements, and stiffness. It is a slowly progressing disorder, which means the symptoms worsen gradually over a period of time. The age-related wear and tear of the joint tissues can also damage the joint and aggravate the symptoms. Dashmool can help to treat this disease by producing an anti-inflammatory and analgesic action. It reduces damage to the joint tissues and provides relief from pain. It helps to improve the quality of life of patients by enhancing the mobility of the joints and reducing joint stiffness.


Gout is a condition caused due to the increase in the level of uric acid in the blood. The excess uric acid tends to deposit in the joints especially the big toe thus causing significant inflammation and damage. Gout is known to cause intense pain in the big toe along with swelling and redness of the affected part. Dashmool can help by reducing inflammation in the affected part. It also reduces the pain, swelling, and redness of the joint caused due to gout.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a disorder primarily caused due to an abnormal response of the immune system that results in the destruction of the joint tissues by the body’s own immune cells. This disease usually affects the joints of the fingers and toes. The common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include pain, stiffness, and restriction of movements. Dashmool can help to relieve this disorder by preventing the destruction of the joints and reducing inflammation and pain. The herbs present in this medicine also correct the abnormal response of the immune system thus providing long-term relief from the problem.

Muscle spasm

Muscle spasm is a common problem that usually occurs due to a faulty posture, sudden twisting or an accidental fall. It causes pain in the muscles along with stiffness and inability to move the affected part. Dashmool relieves the muscle spasm and reduces the pain and discomfort.

Low backache

A low backache may occur due to the age-related degeneration of the vertebrae or even a wrong posture. Patients suffering from this condition can use Dashmool to obtain relief from the pain, and discomfort. It also strengthens the muscles in the back thus improving the muscular support to the vertebral column.
