Dear Jamu Fans, Here are Halal and Healthy Herbal Medicines that are Safe to Consume

We should be grateful as Indonesians because our country is rich in spices. We can take the benefits of the natural resources found in Indonesia. One of them is herbal medicine, or known as jamu. You must be familiar with jamu, traditional medicine made from spices or natural ingredients that are nutritious for our bodies.

On the other hand, jamu is not only made from plants. It is also acquired from animal bodies for their benefit. Furthermore, is every jamu halal to consume? What do you think? Are you curious? Let us find out together!

Jamu is identical to a drinking liquid made from kencur (Kaempferia galanga), ginger, turmeric, temulawak (Curcuma xanthorrhiza), or other herbal ingredients. It is undeniable that jamu is often produced with a mixture of animal organs. In this case, its halal status is doubted and it becomes haram if consumed by Muslims.

In traditional Chinese herbs, for example, herbs can help speed recovery, but they contain snake blood which is haram if it is consumed. Therefore, halal certification is required, so that these things do not happen in the future. The existence of other options to avoid consuming non-halal jamu is a competition for producers of jamu in Indonesia.

Not only seen from the composition, yet all the ingredients used to make jamu also need to be reviewed for their halal status. If jamu, then, requires capsule shells, it is necessary to re-check the ingredients used, whether it contains porcine-derived gelatin or not. Halal audit activity is necessary for a sense of security for consumers, especially Muslims in Indonesia.
