How Chyawanprash was invented.
In Ayurveda, Jams have been made as carriers of various herbs to be delivered to the body, known as anupans. Ashwini Kumars twin brothers (the royal physicians to the Gods during the Vedic era), decided to prepare “Prash” meaning a specially prepared superfood for the elderly sage, Rishi Chyawan, to rejuvenate his vitality and strength and make him look younger. They decided to use Amla as the bed of Jam which would assimilate 50 other herbs to become a polyherbal preparation, which would be nutritious and reviatlizing for all age groups and genders. This resulted in the invention of Chyawanprash. The brothers cleverly used Amla as the carrier, because the abundance of Vitamin C in Amla (contains 30 times more Vitamin C than oranges) ensured strengthening and augmentation of your immunity & metabolism, while preventing viral and bacterial infections, including cough and cold. It also aided in digestion.

Primary Health Benefits of Age Ayurveda Chyawanprash
Supports overall Immunity and prevents early aging: Rasayana is a branch in Ayurveda which focuses on prolonging life by slowing aging and preventing diseases. Of all the formulations in Ayurveda, Chyawanprash indisputably stands out as the most potent offering. Its high Vitamin C content aids in the production of haemoglobin and white blood cells.
