Dosage

The effective therapeutic dosage of Chyawanprash may vary from person to person depending upon the age, body strength, effects on appetite, severity, and condition of the patient. It is firmly recommended to consult an ayurvedic doctor or practitioner as he or she would evaluate the patient’s indications, past medical conditions and prescribe an effective dose for a specific period.

It is advised to consume chyawanprash in the winters or flu seasons only, as most herbs present in the tonic are known to produce heat in the body; hence avoid having it in the sweltering hot months.

Children: ½ to 1 tbsp

Teenagers: 1 to 2 tbsp

Adults: 1 to 3 tbsp

Chyawanprash can be consumed on an empty stomach in the morning or before a meal; if taken twice a day, then one can also take it 30 minutes before dinner or 2 hours after dinner. Usually, doctors advise to consume it with warm cow’s or goat’s milk according to preference and for vegan people, it can also be taken with warm almond milk.

In case, if the adjuvant milk causes any gas formation or flatulence, you can avoid it altogether and simply have it alone.

Indication

Chyawanprash consists of Amla/Amalaki (Phyllanthus emblica/Indian gooseberry) pulp as a base, and this is considered to be the most effective Rasayana for sustaining homeostasis . Chyawanprash that contains Amla has a mixed taste, combining sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and astringent qualities . On regular intake, it maintains physiological functions and rejuvenates the whole body system

Precaution

Although Chyawanprash uses all-natural and ayurvedic ingredients, there are some groups of people who should take precautions before taking Chyawanprash:

Breastfeeding women should avoid taking Chyawanprash or consult their doctor before using it.

Pregnant women should be extra cautious and not take Chyawanprash before seeking permission and discussing it with their healthcare professional.
