Chyawanprash, a nutritive herbal jam, is regarded as „the elixir of life“ for its rejuvenating effects in the system of Ayurvedic medicine. It consists of a unique combination of herbs which favourably affects gastrointestinal functions, optimal immune system and general vitality of bodily tissues due to its antioxidizing properties. Legend has it that in ancient times, the Sage Chyawan, restored his youth and good health by eating Amla (Amalaki) fruit along with dozens of other herbs, and consequently lived to a ripe old age. That was the origin of a unique herbal elixir, which was named Chyawanprash.
1 teaspoon (5g/teaspoon) 2 – 3x daily seperately or with a cup of lukewarm milk or water. To prepare a drink, mix 1 teaspoon (5g) in 8 fl oz (250 ml) of warm water.
Ayurvedic herbal elixirs enhance nutrition of the bodily tissues (dhatus) and purification of bodily systems (srotamsi). They are part of the rejuvenating and revitalising therapy for body and mind (rasajana). Traditionally they are used with a cup of warm milk or water, commonly used in the Ayurvedic medicine as a medium or environment (anupama) for preparation, use, direction and better assimilation of the health effects of the herbal supplements. Other mediums that increase therapeutic functioning of herbs (vehikula) include honey, cane or raw syrup, clarified butter (ghee) or oil.
We recommend using maximum of two herbal elixirs at the same time. More elixirs can be switched in a day or week period in case we use them for normalising common symptoms of distorted balance of body or mind. For their optimal effect use only one elixir at a time before meal allowing one-hour time gap. For more complex therapy for body and mind restoration, elixirs should be used for a longer period of the Ayurvedic treatments from 1 to 3 months following dosage indicated on the label. Specific taste of each elixir represents part of its therapeutic functioning and corresponds to the Ayurvedic properties of six tastes.
For its sattvic properties, the Ayurvedic medicinal system recognises lukewarm or boiled milk as a common ingredient of health recipes. It decreases the heat of Pitta dosha and calms down turbulent emotions. It is also a substantial nourishment and a healthy tonic for people with predominant Vata dosha. The milk enhances formation of life-force ojas which is the essence of the healthy immune system connected with efficient presence of Kapha dosha. People with sensitive digestion or slow metabolism can suffer from digestive disorders after milk consumption. Being such case, put a little of ginger, clove, cardamom, cinnamon or nutmeg into the milk for improvement of the digestive fire. Organic milk is always preferable.
