Abroma augusta, also called Ulat Kambal, is a species of Abroma of Indo-Malayan origin that is found in the rainforests of India, especially in the northeast and on the east coast. Abroma augusta is a small shrub, reaching a height of 3-5 m, with velvety branches. The flowers bloom and bear fruit in December and January and are purple or dark red. Ulat Kambal has many benefits in uterine disorders, dysmenorrhea, arthritic pain, rheumatism and diabetes. It also relieves the headache associated with sinusitis. Roots and root bark are important medicinal parts of Abroma Auguta. The roots are used in Ayurvedic medicines and traditional Indian remedies due to its uterine stimulant and tonic action. In rare cases, fungi and stems are used for demulcent purposes.
Abroma Augusta is emmenagogue (= stimulates blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus), uterine tonic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, antiarthritic, antirheumatic, demulsifying, stimulating ovulation and regulating menstrual flow. Ulat Kambal is a good Ayurvedic remedy for amenorrhea, anovulation and dysmenorrhea. The root bark of the plant helps regulate the menstrual cycle, acting on hormones that stimulate ovulation. It is beneficial in both primary and secondary amenorrhea. At the same time, it is an adjunct in premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and for lower back pain associated with menstruation.
In addition to all this, Ulat Kambalul is rarely used in Ayruveda and for rheumatoid arthritis because it has anti-inflammatory properties, which help reduce joint inflammation.
