The Ayurvedic Pharmacy: Chyawanprash

In ayurveda, India’s oldest longevity tonic, Chyawanprash is considered to be ‘Rasayana’, one of the eight branches of Ayurveda, which aims at maintaining youthfulness, vigor, vitality of the body and keeping away the ageing process, senility and debility. It maintains the proper functioning of the cells and rejuvenates the cells, and therefore also keeps away diseases. The most popular rejuvenating ayurvedic tonic in India, it has the consistency of jam and is made from over 35 natural herbs including Amla (Embellica Officinalis), a tropical gooseberry that is the richest natural source of vitamin C.

It works on the immune system protecting the body against everyday infections like coughs, colds and fevers, and therefore is very useful for children, the elderly and people with weak constitutions. The rest of the ingredients vary from regenerative herbs for the reproductive system such as ashwagandha and shatavari to spices that aid assimilation and digestion. In ayurveda it is believed that most disease stems from problems in the digestive system. All proper maintenance requires good digestion and assimilation, otherwise, worn out tissues will not be replaced by healthy new tissues. Chyawanprash is the most famous, and most effective of these Rasayana remedies, and has been so thoroughly studied that it is legal to market Chyawanprash as an antioxidant.
