Why Do Indian Women Wear Bangles
The word bangle has been derived from the HINDI word Bangri or Bangali, Which in sanskrit gives the meaning “The ornament which adorns the arm”.
Being made from various materials including glass, conch, different metals, gold and ivory.
sound of the glass bangles protect the motor organs of the ladies.
Scientific Reason For Wearing Bangles:
In Ancient days men used to go and work in farms and forests which involves lot of muscle work , while women used to do all the household work. Though house hold involves lot of work but when compared to men’s work it’s kind of small. By sitting at home and not doing much physcial work, there is a chance of blood pressure getting increased, which results in developing impatience.
Normally the wrist portion is in constant activation on any human. Also the pulse beat in this portion is mostly checked for all sorts of ailments. The Bangles used by women are normally in the wrist part of ones hand and its constant friction increases the blood circulation level.

How it works ⁉
How a Medicine works in the human body?
Medicines Can Replace What’s Missing.
If our body makes too much of a certain chemical, that can make us sick too. Luckily, medicines can replace what’s missing (like insulin) or they can block production of a chemical when the body is making too much of it.
Many Ways to Take Medicine : A lot of medicines are swallowed, either as a pill or a liquid. Once the medicine is swallowed, the digestive juices in the stomach break it down, and the medicine can pass into the bloodstream. Your blood then carries it to other parts of your body where the medicine works best.
But some medicines wouldn’t work if the stomach’s digestive juices broke them down. For example, insulin is given as a shot under the skin and then it can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Other medicines need to be breathed into the lungs where they work best for lung problems, like some of the medicines used to treat asthma.
