Yakrit Plihantak Churna - Ayurvedic Solution for Liver Support

Fatty Liver Disease


Fatty Liver Disease (Steatosis) is a common condition which denotes the excessive accumulation of fat in the liver. The liver is located in the upper right-hand portion of the abdominal cavity on the stomach, kidney and intestines. The liver is the major metabolic organ which is found in vertebrate animals. It is a dark red organ with 2 lobes (made of 8 segments and 1000 lobules) and is approximately 1.5 kg. The liver gets the blood supply from 2 distinct sources which include- Oxygenated blood from the hepatic artery and the nutrient-rich flows from the hepatic portal vein. The liver regulates the chemical level in the blood which excretes the product known as Bile. Further, we will discuss the herbal supplement name YakritPlihantak Churna which is formulated by planet Ayurveda and is helpful in the treatment of fatty liver and various other liver problems.


Fatty Liver is the extra deposits of fat in the liver, known as Hepatic Steatosis which contains a small amount of fat which becomes when the fat reaches 5% of liver Weight. It affects about every 10 people which may develop some complications. Fatty changes begin with the development of minute membrane-bounded inclusions which are closely applied to the endoplasmic reticulum. The liver will resemble an adult adipose tissue cell. It becomes contagious; it may rupture and produces fatty cysts.

There are mainly two types of fatty liver disease

  1. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  2. Alcoholic Fatty Liver disease which is known as Alcoholic steatohepatitis


It causes no inflammation and no damage to the liver. This inflammation and liver damage causes fibrosis and scarring of the liver. Nash leads to Cirrhosis and Liver Cancer.


It is due to heavy intake of alcohol which breaks down the liver cells and generates various harmful substances in the body. It damages the liver cells and promotes inflammation which damages the liver.


  1. Fatty changes represent the accumulation of fats which begins the development of fat around the nucleus.
  2. During this,  liver cells are filled with multiple droplets of fats.
  3. Then in later stages, these multiple fat droplets increase in size and push towards the periphery of the cell.

In the case of Fatty liver, it is not a serious problem but it can worsen over time. It progresses through three stages-

  1. The liver becomes inflamed which damages the liver tissues which is known as Steatohepatitis
  2. This scar tissue is formed when the liver cells get damaged, this is known as Fibrosis
  3. This Scar formation replaces the healthy tissues which is known as Cirrhosis of the liver.

In Ayurveda, the Liver is described as Yakrit and Pleha denotes Spleen. They are interrelated organs which are serving the same physiology and the formation of the blood. The roots are Raktavaha Srotas (minute channels which are related to the formation and carrying of the blood) which lie in Yakrit and Pliha.

Yakrit is maintained by Pitta Doshas, which is a subtype of Ranjaka Pitta. Ranjaka means Colour, this gets diminished along with Pachaka Pitta, the whole Pitta zone reduces its fragments and the metabolism becomes sluggish, the immunity of cells leads to various health issues. And further, the Rasa Dhatu (the first tissue) enters the Yakrit and Pleeha, this Ranjaka pitta provides color to the Rasa Dhatu and gets transformed into Rakta Dhatu and the blood tissues. In this condition, Agni also plays a very important role as Mandagni and Mal Sanchay are the two leading causes of Udar rogas.


There are three doshas that rule and control life (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) which are moving through the whole body and blood is pushed by Vata doshas.  Vata and Kapha are the buffers of the body, it reduces the heat and empowers the heating zone. When the heat of Yakrit gets reduced the coldness of Kapha and Vata passes through Yakrit and the liver tends to be sluggish. Every cell of the body is made up of tridoshas and if Pitta is decreased in liver cells it leads to an increase in Kapha doshas. When the liver fails to metabolize the predominant Kapha along with medas (free fat) it tends to accumulate in the liver which causes deteriorating liver physiology.
