Here are just a few of the key organic ingredients I recommend be included in a healthy Chyawanprash formula…
- Amalaki – is renowned for its rich antioxidant content and for its very high concentration of vitamin C – one of the highest known in the plant kingdom. The vitamin C contained in the amalaki fruit is stabilized by the presence of tannins, which help to preserve the vitamin content, even through processing. This is particularly relevant in a preparation such as chyawanprash, which requires extensive cooking
- Cardamom – From the ginger family, this herb helps strengthen and ease your normal digestive processes and helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range*
- Cinnamon – Promotes healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range as well as supporting your blood vitality, cardiovascular system, and digestive system*
- Ghee – A form of clarified butter that’s a good source of beta carotene and vitamin E. Aids in nutrient absorption and helps protect the nervous system against oxidative stress*
- Honey – Raw, organic honey not only adds benefits such as increased energy and free radical busting antioxidants, but also adds flavor.
