Piles can be a painful, uncomfortable affliction. They are also known as hemorrhoids, and can be internal or external. The remedy up for review today is called Pilesgon capsule by Ayurved Research Foundation. As the name suggests, it is an ancient Indian Ayurvedic remedy. Today, Ayurvedic medicine is practiced throughout the world. Unlike western medicine, the aim is to promote good health, not fight a certain affliction, although a certain remedy may be geared towards a certain solution for a particular disease. Ayurvedic medicine is concerned with the health of the whole person – mentally, physically and emotionally – and is therefore considered to be a holistic approach to health.
Internal hemorrhoids occur in the rectum and often the sufferer may not be able to see the lumpy swelling but can feel discomfort when passing or sitting, and may see blood in the stool. If you have an external pile near your anus, you can often feel a slight protrusion in the affected area. Piles are slightly enlarged veins – they are like the varicose veins of the anorectal area – that have burst or ruptured. This is often due to pressure from weight, pregnancy or a sitting posture during the day, and individuals also often have a genetic predisposition to it. Many supplement makers have synthesized natural ingredients to provide an alternative to existing pharmaceutical remedies, some of which may require a prescription, adding to the expense.
Pilesgon promises to shrink your piles, relieve the itching, repair damaged tissue, stop any bleeding and relieve inflammation if taken over a period of 2 to 3 months.

Together thee ingredients shrink pile masses, repair damaged tissues and help the pain and itching subside. It also improves blood flow and circulation, and strengthens the actual vein walls. In addition, the vein walls are also toned so they are more elastic and can accommodate changing blood flow, rather than burst when capacity to do so is strained. This treatment process for the veins is designed to prevent hemorrhoids from recurring again. The ingredients also include gentle forms of dietary fiber to stimulate the bowel and soften loose stool. Itching and inflammation around the pile, as well as the burning sensation while passing, are also dealt with.
The recommended dose is one or two capsules twice a day with plain water. Continue this dosage for two to three months to procure relief.
There are no known side effects to this all-herbal product, according to the manufacturer. However, as always, we recommend that if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should proceed on this go ahead of your medical practitioner. It is also probably a good idea to obtain medical advice if you are on medication such as blood thinners, even though taking this formulation is likely only to present a mild risk at best.
It seems you can only order Pilesgon on the Ayurved Research Foundation website. A bottle of 32, 48, 64 and 80 capsules will cost you $22, $30, $39 and $45 respectively. This equals a saving of $3, $5 and $10 on the 48 count, 64 count and 80 count bottle respectively.
The returns policy is weak. You have to email the supplier within 7 days to start the returns process. Most importantly, your product should still be in the original condition with an unbroken seal. This means effectively that you can only return goods that have been shipped to you in error, in other words, if you’ve been given a product other than the one you ordered.
Ayurved Research Foundation Pilesgon Capsule Review – Conclusion
The product is all natural and very mild. The genuine consumer reviews for this product are mostly weak. And the challenge is that too little is generally known in the west about these alternative ayurvedic ingredients to either substantiate the manufacturer’s claims, or to rebut the at best modest consumer reviews.
Given that this formula takes many weeks to supposedly rid you of piles practically for good, the price point is high. Yes, there is a marginal savings if you buy bottles in bulk. But, should the product not work, you’ll have no recourse to a refund. You would need to document your intention to return the product to the shipment site in India for a refund.
It is easy to make claims regarding external piles as they can, by and large, heal on their own within 2 to 3 weeks. Most other natural remedies offer alleviation within 2 to 5 days. As a result, even against rivals, this product does not seem to hold up to scrutiny well. As for the more difficult to treat internal hemorrhoids, again, it is hard to know whether the claims stand up to scrutiny. There is simply no way of testing the product risk-free. Given that there is too much vaguery around this product, we cannot freely recommend it.
