Yakrut is the Ayurvedic name for liver. It is involved in several physiological processes in the body, including metabolic activities, secretory, retention, purification, and elimination of foreign and endogenous materials. As a result, any impairment or degradation of its functionality leads to a wide range of liver problems. The principal hepatic illnesses that cause a high fatality rate include hepatotoxicity, jaundice, and hepatitis. Liver problems are still a growing health problem around the world.
