    Ashwagandhadi Lehyam Preparation at Lakshmi Ayurveda
    Does your body feel weak, stressed and fatigued?

    Today we are preparing Ashwagandhadi Lehyam. The type of formulation can also be called an Avaleha.

    Avalehya kalpana
    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

    Today we have made Ashwagandha lehyam in Lakshmi’s kitchen this is a very nourishing Avaleha

    Balya - body stregthening
    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).

    Shelflife is 1 year, best to keep in a glass jar.
