The Health Benefits of Chyawanprash
Chyawanprash, an ancient Indian elixir, is an anti-aging supplement, which is purely herbal in nature. It lists Amla as one of its’ main ingredients, a powerful antioxidant which contains 30 times more vitamin C than an orange! It is most well known for its rejuvenating and restorative purposes but we’ve outlined some of this wonder-jam’s other super-powers below:
Chyawanprash has been known to activate the immune system, increasing human body resistance to diseases (primarily respiratory in the winter). It is particularly good for the lungs because it nourishes the mucous membranes and helps to keep the respiratory passages clean and clear.
It can help the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, helping people who suffer with poor digestion. Also, it aids in promoting healthy movement of gases through the digestive system, great for people suffering from IBS.
Another appealing factor is its ability to help promote hair growth and helps the absorption of calcium resulting in strong bones and teeth. It improves the skin’s complexion and fights dermal bacteria infections.
The liver really benefits from the intake of this jam-like substance as it can help purify blood and invigorate the liver to help eliminate toxins from the body without overworking the urinary system.
Finally, Chyawanprash has be shown to enhance fertility and keeps menstruation regular and helps to overcome difficulties in conception.
Chyawanprash has a tangy sweet-sour taste and has the consistency of a thick jam. It can be taken alone, stirred into milk or water, or it can be spread on toast/crackers like regular jam. The normal dosage is 1-2 teaspoons a day.
