Digestion : Immature dried Bael is a specific fruit or herb for chronic irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diarrhoea, dysentery, and malabsorption that manifests as long term imbalances with ‘mucusy’ and watery stools. Its astringency checks the excessive downwards movement of vata. It also dries the excess mucus and ama that comes with high kapha aggravations. It is a good choice where there may be ulceration and inflammation of the mucous membranes in the intestines; ulcers, colitis, Crohn’s disease. Bael fresh fruit is more of a laxative used in summer to cool the system. It is very heavy to digest and should only be taken in small amounts.
