Amla acts as a general tonic as well. Amla is antibacterial and anti-fungal and has anabolic action. Fresh fruit juice of Amla is used in inflammations of eyes as a collyrium. It can be applied with benefit to recent inflammations of the conjunctiva and other eye complaints, ophthalmia.

Madh is antimicrobial in nature. It is nutritive, demulcent, and emollient. Madh by itself applied to wounds heals them rapidly. It provides energy to the muscles.
Jiwadaya Netraprabha when applied stimulates the lachrymal glands leading to natural flow of tears rapidly flowing out of the eyes. These natural tears provide essential cleansing to the eyes. Further, this action takes place within 15-20 seconds after application thereby providing immediate relief from any feeling of irritation, heaviness or dryness in the eyes. (During this time, it is advisable to keep eyes lightly closed moving the eyeball in clockwise and anti-clockwise direction. Do not squeeze your eyes. You may experience a little burning but this would vanish within seconds.)
We have been provided with a natural mechanism by which our eyes start watering as soon as any foreign particle gets into the eye. However, to provide a wash to tired eyes to rejuvenate them and keep them clean, bright, healthy, and smiling for year in and year out, nature has provided us with Amla, Kapoor and Madh which we have accumulated for you into Jiwadaya Netraprabha.
