    Ashwagandhadi Lehyam

    Does your body feel weak, stressed and fatigued?

    We have prepared a fresh batch of Ashwagandhadi Lehyam.

    This is a semi solid Ayurvedic preparation rich in taste and nourishing for all the bodily tissues (dhatus). ?

    The word Avaleha has been derived from the root word “lihaswadane”in which “lih” means a substance which is licked and “aswadane” means that which has good taste. ?

    This is true as most Avaleha taste very delicious. ?

    Different Avaleha’s are explained in the Ayurvedic Samhitas such as Charak Samhita, Vagbhata Samhita and Sharangdhara Samhita. ?

    The type of formulations is easier to consume then churnas (herbal powders) and is more palatable. ?

    Avaleha are intend to provide better drug absorption through the mouth along with absorption through the intestine.

    The common ingredient of Avaleha are:

    1. Drava Dravya – a liquid medium ?

    2. Madhur Dravya – a sweetener such as jaggery or sugar candy ?

    3. Prakshep Dravya – fine powder or a pulp ?

    4. Sneha Dravya – ghee, thailam ?

    5. Additives – honey or others ?

    Our Ashwagandha lehyam uses:

    Balya – body strengthening

    Rasayana – to rejuvenate

    Vajiarkana – promotes fertility and virility

    Nervous debility

    Weak Mamsa (muscle) tissue

    Dosage: 1-2 tsp at bed time with milk ?

    Milk is recommended as Anupana ?

    Anupana is important in Ayurvedic medicine as it acts as a carrier for the medicine to reach to the target area and enhances the efficacy of the aushadha (medicine).
