Jaundice is a disease associated with the liver that occurs when the level of bilirubin in the body increases a lot. Bilirubin is a brownish-yellow substance in our body, which is formed when red blood cells break down. The excessive amounts of bilirubin in the body start to adversely affect the liver, due to which the ability of the liver to function starts deteriorating. Gradually, when the bilirubin spreads throughout the body, the person becomes vulnerable to jaundice.

In jaundice, the white part of the nails and eyes of a person suffering from jaundice starts turning yellow and symptoms like abdominal pain, loss of appetite, dyspepsia (indigestion), nausea and weight loss are seen. In case of such symptoms, one should immediately contact the doctor.

In this article, you’ll learn about the herbs that can help in jaundice.
