Arugampul / Bermuda Grass Juice Health Benefits + Recipe

 

A juice made from arugampul also called "Bermuda Grass" in English has wonderful health benefits. Arugampul juice is the best home remedy for anemia and keeps us refreshed through the day. Drinking arugampul juice helps in treating skin diseases and prevents further attacks. It is also one of the best natural detox juices available and regular consumption of this juice cleanses our body. It prevents cold and sinus infection, if consumed regularly. Drinking this juice also helps get rid of mouth odor. Few months back, I was continuously having this arugampul juice everyday. One of our neighbors who was consuming this juice regularly advised me to drink this arugampul juice everyday for it's wonderful health benefits. I stopped drinking because we didn't get proper rains for a few months and all the grass dried out in the farm. Arugampul / Bermuda Grass is considered very highly in India, we make a garland out of it and use it as an offering in our prayers. It is also used extensively in home remedies. Nowadays, even in major cities in India, arugampul juice is sold everywhere. But the problem with arugampul juice is, it should be made hygienically, else drinking arugampul juice itself will lead to other problems. Arugampul has to be cleaned really well before making the juice, so always try and make your own arugampul juice at home. To make the arugampul juice, collect fresh grass that has not been stamped on, and the best way to do it is to grow it in pots or in a fenced area. Soak  the cut grass in water for a few minutes to remove the dirt, wash it well again and then cut it into small pieces. Add boiled water to it and grind in a mixer and strain. I like to drink it plain, but you can add honey to sweeten it. If you find it bland, you can add cumin seeds, peppercorns and salt while grinding the grass. This juice has a bland taste and fresh grassy smell that I like. Arugampul can be easily grown in huge pots anywhere. Try to drink it in empty stomach in the early morning for best results.

 


 METHOD:
1. Collect fresh grass, preferably in the early morning and soak it in water for a few minutes to remove all the dirt.


2. Cut it into small pieces and grind it in a mixer using boiled water. You can add cumin seeds and peppercorns while grinding, if you prefer.


3. Strain it using a soup strainer by squeezing the ground grass with your fingers.


4. Drink it fresh for it's wonderful health benefits.


NOTES:
  • This juice tastes good, if made with fresh grass.
  • Clean the grass really well, before making the juice. 
  • Adding spices are individual choice. Some good additions are peppercorns and cumin seeds, but add very little.

    1. Hi Shruti..
      Have a super remedy for body odor.. STOP USING CHEMICAL DEODORANT(how expensive the brand may be)
      1. Exfoliate underarms/body using brown sugar(preferred),turmeric(optional),honey & lemon mix during bath.
      2. Then, after bath, squeeze a slice of lemon and rub the juice on underarms.
      It acts a natural antibacterial and bleach and deodorant.

      you will love it.. let me know your experience

  6. Hi Jegatha,
    For ear itching, try the garlic oil in the blog, it is very safe to use. Make the garlic oil and apply two drops in the ears and make sure to lie down in the opposite side for a few minutes after applying the oil in each ear. This oil can be applied at 10 hour intervals, till the problem vanishes...
    Here is the link for making garlic oil: http://www.wildturmeric.net/2014/04/garlic-for-ear-infection.html

    1. Hi, A few weeks back, I made Aloe Vera oil for my cousin and he was using it regularly for his eczema and now his eczema is slowly clearing up. I feel this is one of the safest treatments for a child that can be used for long term and that will also improve her skin. You can find the method for making the oil in the blog. But I must warn you this oil really stinks, but it really works. Try applying the oil consistently, it might take a week or two to start seeing results depending on the severity of the condition. Also continue using for a few months daily to prevent her from getting it back.........

    1. Hi Ragini,
      To improve the skin color try face packs (you can find face pack recipes in the blog) regularly that suits your skin type. Also try using homemade bath powder, instead of soap. To reduce weight, follow our traditional diet, stop eating packaged foods that is loaded with preservatives and chemicals, sleep well and follow a strict exercise regimen....

    1. Arugampul juice has wonderful health benefits and medicinal uses and though it won't reduce the weight by itself directly without a proper diet plan or exercise, it is great to include it in weight loss plan as it nourishes the body. Arugampul juice does not have any side effects on the reproductive system but make sure to make the juice yourself rather than buying it from the shops..

    1. Hi, Though certain herbal teas and juices assist in weight loss like green tea, turmeric tea, this arugampul juice, etc, in my personal experience sustainable weight loss happens only with exercise and calorie controlled diet. But since she has got back pain focus only on her diet and watch her calories closely, include fiber rich traditional foods in all her three meals (ragi, bajra, millets, whole wheat, etc), it will keep her fuller for longer and at the same time has low calories. You can also give her barley water or green tea or arugampul juice instead of regular tea daily, it will flush out the toxins and keep her digestion and health in peak order...

  20. Hello Ramya Madam,
    I am suffering from severe ear aches. Doctor treatments spanning three months also did not help, as soon as medications were exhausted I got my ear ache back. Doctor said I have ear congestion, which develops into infection whenever I catch cold or during cold season. Since two months, I have ear aches every few days. When headache develops due to ear ache, I fall very sick, cant even get up, eat or drink anything. Besides this, I have sinusitis, which gives me migraines. Is this grass helpful even for ear aches? Kindly suggest any home remedy. I tried eating raw ginger, but it gave me nose bleeds, but no relief from ear ache. Kindly help.

    1. Dear Madhavi, I am very sorry for the late reply. I would suggest garlic oil from the blog, it is a simple remedy that works really well for ear congestion. For sinus infection I would suggest nochi steam, it works so well and it will greatly help in headaches too. Try collecting the leaves, store and use it whenever needed.....
