About Ayurveda

Ayuvedic medicine, or Ayurveda, is a type of alternative medicine in the form of holistic healing. It's an old Indian or Hindu medicine that includes common practices derived from the Atharvaveda, which contains over a hundred hymns and incantations considered by many to be magical cures for diseases. Modern practices of Ayurveda include herbal remedies, oils, and certain surgical processes, among others.

What is Chyawanprash?

As mentioned, chyawanprash is an herbal tonic commonly used in India.

  • Other names. Chyawanprash can also be referred to as chyavanaprasha, chyavanaprasam, or chyawanprash rasayana. (The word "rasayana" means tonic.)
  • The concoction. The mixture itself looks like a dark brown jam. It's made using potent Ayurvedic herbs (like cardamom, cinnamon, or saffron to name a few). The concoction is brown, sticky, and tastes sweet, sour, and spicy.
  • Origins of the word. "Chyawanprash" is named after Rishi, or a sage by the name of Chyawan, who was the first person to prepare this tonic. The story starts off with the sage, who was quite old in the beginning. Then, however, he regained his youthfulness and vitality with the use of this herbal tonic.
  • Charak Samhita. Charak Samhita is an ancient Ayurvedic book written by Charak in the 4th century B.C. that includes the formula for this herbal preparation. In it, it claims that chyawanprash is the best and most effective of all herbal tonics available to mankind.
  • Popular brands. While you can easily make it at home, Dabur, Himalaya, and Zandu are some of the most popular chyawanprash brands sold in India and worldwide. Organic India also offers this preparation for the Western world.

Ingredients

This potent herbal tonic contains:

  • Amla, otherwise known as Indian gooseberry, which is the main ingredient. (Every 100g of this product contains 15,000 mg of amla.)
  • A mixture of Ayurvedic herbs, which include powerful herbs that are known for their health benefits. This list includes: ashwagandha, vidarikand or pueraria, long pepper, white sandalwood, cardamom, tulsi, brahmi, arjun, jatamansi, neem and many others.
  • Honey and clarified butter, which are mixed with the herb. In the end, it retains the consistency of a jam, which is why it's often referred to as a fruity jam with honey in it.

Health Benefits

Chyawanprash is safe for both the elderly and young children to take. It comes with many health benefits, which include the following:

  • Improves one's immune system. The combination of over forty herbs makes chyawanprash a powerful immunity boosting tonic. Amla or gooseberry, the main ingredient, contains 30 times more vitamin C than oranges. This is one of the main reasons why chyawanprash is such a powerful immune-booster. It protects the body from bacterial, viral, and fungal infections.
  • Healthy respiratory system. It promotes a healthy respiratory system, being especially beneficial for the healthy functioning of the lungs. This makes it an ideal and healthy herbal remedy for those with asthma and chronic bronchitis.
  • Great for digestion. This tonic does a great job at balancing stomach acids. It promotes the digestion of food and the absorption of nutrients into the blood. It also provides relief in constipation, reduces flatulence, and relieves nausea and diarrhea.
  • Benefits for your heart. This herbal tonic also promotes the healthy functioning of the heart. It is a powerful energizer for the brain and helps enhance concentration and memory.
  • Anti-aging features. It's also an anti-aging herbal tonic that can prevent wrinkles and graying of hair. Its potent antioxidant and rejuvenating herbs delays the aging of cells, provides proper nutrition, and promotes youthfulness and longevity.
  • Many other benefits. Chyawanprash also helps purify blood, stimulate the liver, and promote the elimination of toxins from the body.

Besides the above health benefits, chyawanprash also:

  • Enhances sexual potency and pleasure, keeps all the sensory organs healthy.
  • Improves one's complexion and strengthens hair.
  • Is used by bodybuilders for building muscles.

How to Use Chyawanprash

The mixture is often commonly taken with some warm milk.
The mixture is often commonly taken with some warm milk.

Recommended Dosage

  • One teaspoon should be taken twice a day — once in the morning and then again at night.
  • The sticky jam can be taken directly or it's often mixed with warm milk or water.
  • Others enjoy taking this herbal tonic by spreading it on a cracker or bread, as well.

Side Effects?

  • Weight gain unlikely. Many people are often concerned that taking this too often will lead to weight gain, because of the clarified butter contained in the mix. However, the ghee, or clarified butter, isn't the main ingredient and very little actually goes into it — it's there merely to ensure a proper mixing of the ingredients.
  • Burning sensations. Some people complain about a burning sensation in their stomach after consuming this herbal tonic, likely due to the strong herbs that go into the mix. You may experience this, and if so, drinking some warm (not hot) milk after taking chyawanprash will help soothe that. To avoid this, you can also start with half a teaspoon of the mix instead, take milk, and then over time, increase the amount to one teaspoon once your system gets used to it.

Chyawanprash is a overall a safe herbal tonic. People of all ages can take it safely for their health. In fact, children as young as three years old can take it. However, make sure to reduce the dosage for young children.

Make Chyawanprash an Integral Part of Your Health Care Routine

As you can now see, chywanprash can help promote many health benefits and it is safe to use for people of all ages. However, please note that it is advisable to consult a physician if you are on regular medication or have any chronic disease. Also, if you plan on incorporating it into the daily routine of your children, make sure you consult with their pediatrician first.

Also, to optimize results, you should look into introducing healthy lifestyle (a work out regime and eating a healthy and balanced diet in general) in order to get the most you can out of the chyawanprash.

      Hi kempegowda,

      Just follow the instructions on the chyawanprash pack you've bought. Try and take it with milk in the morning 30 minutes before breakfast or after breakfast, whichever works best for you.

      Hi Sadanand,

      Since your problem is mainly related to reflux and acidity, try Triphala instead of Chyawanprash. It will be more helpful for both the digestive issues as well as for high blood pressure.

      Hi Dani,

      You never know which ingredient could cause an allergy since there are so many there in chyawanprash.

      Furthermore, you also don't know which ingredient may interact with which medication since there haven't been any researches.

      The best course is to try out for a few days or weeks, watch carefully and see if it causes an adverse reaction.

      Try consulting an ayurvedic practitioner. If not available, try limiting use of products to 1 or 2. Best is to use 1 at a time for about 3-6 months so that you know for sure which one is working and which is not helpful.

      All the best!

      My husband has Parkinson's and dementia and I wondered if he could take it? Also, can you be allergic to any of the ingredients in the preparation? I saw, above, the ingredients list and we are not allergic to any of them that I know of. We were planning on trying a product that has Chyavanprash as well as Ashwagandha, Arjuna and Gotu Kola in it so I am researching all the ingredients before I use this product.

      Hi Mina,

      Please consult your doctor because it is very difficult to know which medications can interact with which ingredient of any ayurvedic preparation.

      If you are really interested in taking it, keep a very close watch on your and your daughter's health. This is especially necessary for your daughter. Especially keep a watch for any difference in your daughter's behavior.

      For example, on days when you do give her compared to days when you don't give her. Or if there has been difference in her behavior since she started taking it.

      Stop chyawanprash if you notice any major issues. Also, stop it after taking it for 3 months, doesn't matter whether it is helping you and your daughter or not. Start again, after giving a gap of 1-2 months.

      For BP, you may also consider taking Triphala instead of Chyawanprash. Read about it here:

      Hi Nagaraju,

      Chayawanprash will strengthen your immune system, and may help a little in joint pain indirectly. But if you are specifically looking for relief in joint pain, it may not be the right product for you.

      If you are looking for something simple to use, Triphala could help. Read about it here:

      Hi Hamid Ali,

      Generally, it doesn't have a negative effect on your sugar levels. However, you need to consult your doctor before trying it out or at least watch your sugar levels carefully if you are planning on taking it.

      Besides this, you could try out Triphala for your diabetes since it is quite helpful in stabilizing sugar levels and can offer you long-term benefits.

      Hi Khushi,

      There is no harm in consuming the chayawanprash. But if the jar was kept in a hot place, or if it smells strange, or tastes differently, don't consume it.

      There isn't really any harm in consuming it in the summers, but it is a better idea to start taking it when the weather is slightly cooler. Chyawanprash generates heat and starting your consumption in the summers can give rise to rashes or boils in some people as the body is adjusting to it.

      Better would be to start when the weather is cooler, so that your body gets adjusted to the medicine in the cold weather.

      All the best!

      Hi Ram Kumar,

      You can surely take chyawanprash to improve your immunity. But if you are in a region where it is hot and humid right now, please wait for a few months to take it.

      Otherwise, take a lot of seasonal fruits, drink lots of water, and avoid fried and fatty foods as much as possible. Taking a good multivitamin for 3 months would also be quite helpful.

      Hi Kirit,

      Chyawanprash can help in improving the health of your father since it does contain ingredients that build your overall health and well being. But if you are looking for drastic improvements in Parkinson symptoms, it may be too much to expect.

      As he is also taking diabetes medication, you will need to consult the doctor before taking chyawanprash. But that doesn't mean he cannot use chyawanprash. If he does plan on using it, just watch the sugar levels more often than usual.

      Triphala is a much safer product to use. Triphala helps in balancing sugar levels so in this case also watch sugar levels as he may have to cut down the medications after a couple of months.

      Hi Sandi,

      Chyawanprash doesn't spoil so easily. So, unless you did not seal the container properly or have left it lying there for more than 1 year after opening the jar, or it is more than 3 years from its manufacturing date, or you kept it in an area where the temperature was quite high, it should be OK.

      Still, if the texture doesn't feel OK, it properly is going bad. No point in taking a risk with your health. Just throw it and get a new bottle.

      All the best!

There are slightly crunchy crystals in it. I can't see them, but can feel them in my mouth. I take by the spoonful, not in a beverage. Is it still ok? I don't see any fungus on top.

      Hi Sabin,

      Both chyawanprash and triphala are good for the liver. But since you use the term "liver patient", I am thinking that the person you are referring to has a liver problem and is probably also taking medication for this.

      If so, please talk to your doctor before taking any of these two herbal formulations regularly. This is especially important if you are taking a medication.

      Also, if you are not on medication and have no specific liver disease, but are just looking for boosting your liver after a long-term health issue, begin with triphala since it is a good cleanser and liver detoxifier.

      Start with chyawanprash after 2-3 months.

      All the best!

      Hi Kalpana!

      It is always a good idea to avoid giving chyawanprash with any kind of medicine. Any kind of medicine. The chemicals in the medicines may just cause a reaction. If it is antibiotics, it is especially important to avoid it. Wait for a week after stopping the course of medicines to start giving chyawanprash.

      Also, your child is too young. Avoid giving chyawanprash on a regular basis, not more than 2 weeks.

      Also, until and unless there is a huge reason for giving antibiotics to a child that young, better to look for some natural alternatives.

      All the best!

      Hi Peter,

      Chyawanprash should ideally be taken in the morning since it does give you a energy boost. It doesn't contain any stimulants as such. But for some people, especially people with respiratory issues at night, it helps when they take it a night. By nature it is a heat generating product. It depends on you for what purpose you want to take it.

      Firstly, please watch what you eat. If there is anything you are eating that is tough on the stomach, please stop taking it (at least for some days).

      Hi Kishore,

      Chyawanprash can indeed help in improving memory. Doesn't matter which brand you use. For improving memory and concentration, you should incorporate certain calming activities such as meditation, relaxation exercises, visualization into your daily routine.

      Also pay attention to what you eat and your digestion. If you feel your digestion is not up to the mark, you are probably eating something that doesn't suit you. Watch what you eat and see if there are things that don't suit. Keep them to the minimum.

      Above all do good to others, just for the sake of service and not just for benefits.

      Hi Ajay,

      Chayawanprash will not cause hair loss. In fact, it will help in promoting health from within which will strengthen your scalp.

      If you are worried about the heat, just start taking it once the weather becomes cool. Also, make sure to drink lots of water and eat seasonal fruits, at least 2 fruit a day. Avoid eating too much spicy and fried food since it generates heat.

      You may experience some problems in the beginning as the body gets used to the product. But make sure to give it at least 2 weeks. It should be OK by then. If it keeps on getting worse, just reduce the quantity you are taking.

      Hi Dindo,

      Please don't take anything without discussing with your doctor first if you are still taking these injections.

      You can wait until you finish the therapy before taking chayawanprash.

      If you are concerned about your liver, please talk to your doctor. He or she would surely be able to suggest something.

      If you still would like to try something ayurvedic for your liver, you could try Triphala. But again, watch for any side-effects or reduction of the effects of your injections. If you do notice something like this, just stop taking it.

      Hi Sandesh,

      I would suggest you stick to one variety. Although most chayawanprash have similar ingredients, there are often minor differences.

      I suggest you choose one and stick to it for at least 3 months. Also, please don't base your decision on cost.

      If you are confused, just check the ingredients of each. You can easily find these on the Internet and then make a decision. You can also check products such as Zandu which is also quite good.

      Do share with us why you decided to choose one over the other.

      Hi Riya,

      There is no harm in taking chyawanprash with vitamin supplements as long as there are no other herbs present in the supplement you are taking.

      If you are concerned or just to make sure, take them at different times. For example, you could take chyawanprash in the morning and the vitamin supplements in the afternoon.

      Hi Randi,

      The best thing to do is to consult an Ayurvedic practitioner who could take a look at your cold sores. Right now, if you are taking chyawanprash, try to stop taking for a few months and see if it is for some reason caused by it. Generally, it shouldn't be. But just check.

      Instead, try taking Triphala powder daily at bedtime. It may help you.

      All the best!

      Hi Pushpendra,

      It is better to consult your homeopathic doctor about this since homeopathy does have strict instructions about what to eat and what not to eat while taking its medications.

      The advisable thing to do would be to finish your homeopathic course and then start taking chyawanprash so that you get back your lose strength and energy after the malaria is over.

      Hi Gita,

      There is no harm in taking chyawanprash if you have ovarian cysts. It helps in balancing hormones and may actually benefit you. But if you are taking any other medication regularly, keep a gap of at least 3-4 hours from the chyawanprash and watch out for any reactions that may occur with its interaction with the medication.

      All the best!

      Hi Kumar,

      You can mix the chyawanprash into the green tea. Just stir it in the cup until it dissolves. If you don't like the taste in your green tea, just have one teaspoon and enjoy your green tea as you usually do!

      All the best!

      Hi Khan,

      You can ask your nearest medical store or chemist shop. They are likely to have some or the other brand of chyawanprash. If not, you can always order online. Some links are given in the above article.

      Hi Sanjay,

      Take 1-2 teaspoon of chyawanprash every morning. Eat high calorie foods such a butter, milk, dahi. If you are a non-vegetarian, eat eggs, chicken, fish. Eat fruits such as mangoes. A banana milk shake in the morning is a good way to start your day.

      Exercise by doing running, aerobics, lifting weights.

      In short, just eat well, exercise and your will be able to gain weight.

      Hi Ajay,

      Firstly, why do you want to eat more, that's the question. Do you want to gain weight? If that's the reason, chyawanprash can help. Take it everyday.

      But make sure to eat right. Just eating anything will not help. You need to eat healthy foods. Use milk, fruits, fresh vegetables, protein-rich foods to gain weight. Also, exercise, it will help you gain weight. Please don't go go for fast foods, fried foods for the sake of gaining weight.

      All the best!

      Hi Sana,

      Chyawanprash is not harmful for a teenage girl. Chyawanprash balances your hormones and some people may develop pimples while taking it during the initial stages. Also, if someone has an allergy (known or unknown) to any of its ingredients, one may develop rashes or acne. The reactions are very much like what may happen when one takes modern allopathic medicines. So, there is nothing to be alarmed about. You can take it safely.

      Also, chyawanprash does not make you gain weight. But if you are eating foods that make you fat, you will surely gain weight. There is nothing special that you need to do while taking chyawanprash to make sure that you don't gain weight. Just avoid fatty foods, such as fried and fast foods, eat lots of fresh fruits (not fatty fruits such as mangoes), drink lots of water, and stay active and exercise.

      All the best!

      Hi Anbu,

      Chyawanprash will definitely help you gain weight. But do keep in mind that you should pay special attention to your diet as well. Consume foods that are rich in nutrients and help you gain weight. Exercising and staying active will promote appetite and make you reach for healthy foods.

      Hi Mrinz,

      Chyawanprash can help your wife get all the nutrients that she may not be getting from her food. It can help become healthier, gain weight, have a stronger immune system (reduced illness), and make her generally healthy.

      So, let her try it out. But do make sure she takes care of her diet, that is, milk, fruits, a good serving of vegetables, etc. If you eat non-veg, go for chicken and fish and eggs. If you are a vegetarian, soya in all forms can be good food to eat.

      All the best!

      Hi Kashif,

      Generally, the expiry is 18-24 months from the month of manufacturing for chyawanprash. Check again there should be an expiry date on the bottle somewhere. If not, just calculate from the month of manufacturing till now.
