The most important herbal formulas in the Siddha Ayurvedic tradition are Chyawanprash. They are delicious nutritive jams that were created thousands of years ago and offers a wide range of health benefits.

This jam is made with a base of the superfood Amla (that is known for its rich antioxidant content and contains one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C in the entire plant kingdom)! Once the Amla base is prepared, it is methodically combined with many other potent herbs and spices to create a delicious jam that promotes overall health & longevity.

The primary action of chyawanprash is to bolster the immune system and to support the body’s natural ability to produce hemoglobin and white blood cells.* Amalaki (the main ingredient in chyawanprash) aids in the elimination of ama (toxins) and supports the blood, the liver, the spleen, and the respiratory system; it therefore nourishes and protects the body’s natural defense systems.*

Packed with compounds like polyphenols, minerals like iron and zinc and vitamins like carotenes and vitamin B complex, amla can definitely keep a number of diseases at bay.*

  1. Improves immunity: Rich in Vitamin C and polyphenols, amla is a great source of antioxidants. Research has shown that it has a high content of tannins, which when combined with polyphenols gives the fruit a unique free radical scavenging property. This unique asset helps reduce the damage caused by free radicals on the body and hence improves the body’s ability to fight disease.*
  2. Protects your heart: Amla is known to reduce cholesterol and keep heart disease under check. Rich in fibre and iron, it is very effective in controlling the oxidation of LDL (Low-density lipoprotein). Oxidation of LDL releases free radicals which are known to cause coronary artery disease, therefore stopping this oxidation is essential for preventing heart disease. Amla also helps to maintain cholesterol levels by inhibiting the oxidative properties of a chemical called thiobarbituric acid (TBA) that induces LDL oxidation. Another benefit of this wonder fruit is that it prevents atherosclerosis (accumulation of plaque in the arteries) thereby protecting you from heart disease.*
  3. Can help control diabetes and its complications: Research studies show that the polyphenol-rich fruit actually has properties that can protect the body from the oxidative properties of high blood sugar. The same compound is also effective in preventing the insulin resistance caused due to a high fructose diet. What this means is that the fruit can actually assist in the proper absorption of insulin leading to a drop in blood sugar in diabetics.*
  4. Slows down aging: The extract of amla is rich in Vitamin A. This vitamin is essential in collagen production, a compound that keeps the skin looking young and elastic. Amla, when consumed on an empty stomach, has properties that slow down the degradation of collagen and helps the body produce more.*
  5. Improves your sex life: In a recent study, it was found that the iron content in amla has sperm enhancing properties. Ayurvedic practitioners suggest, drinking amla juice once a day helps increase the virility as well as sexual vigor. Amla has also proven to increase the motility of sperm and increase sperm production in men suffering from Oligospermia (a condition where a man has a low sperm count).*
  6. Can help protect you from cancer: Packed with antioxidant properties, amla has the potential to keep cancer at bay. Research into this particular property of the fruit, has found that it had the potential to prevent cancer by helping the body fight the harmful effects of chemicals that are carcinogenic. It also helps to inhibit the further growth of cancer affected cells. Apart from this, Amla extract can reduce the harmful effects of radiation and chemotherapy without reducing their beneficial effects as an anti-cancer treatment.*
  7. Gastric problems: The fiber, polyphenol and water content of amla combined with its anti-inflammatory properties make it a great antidote for an upset stomach. Having one teaspoon of amla juice on an empty stomach can take care of acidity and resolve a stomach upset.*
  8. Soothes the throat: Amla juice mixed with some ginger provides instant relief from a sore through and cough.*
  9. Protects your liver: Studies have proved that amla has properties that protect the liver from oxidative damage caused by chemicals or alcohol. So after a long night of partying, have a piece of amla first thing in the morning, to get rid of that hangover and keep your liver safe.*

Antioxidant agents prevent and repair these damages. Vitamin-C is a good antioxidant agent, which makes gooseberries a powerful tool against a variety of conditions, including various types of cancer.*




contains many anti-depressant compounds and hundreds of potentially healing substances have been identified in licorice as well, including compounds called flavonoids and various plant estrogens (phytoestrogens). The herb's key therapeutic compound, glycyrrhizin (which is 50 times sweeter than sugar) exerts numerous beneficial effects on the body, making licorice a valuable herb for treating a host of ailments.* It seems to prevent the breakdown of adrenal hormones such as cortisol (the body's primary stress-fighting adrenal hormone), making these hormones more available to the body.*

It can also be used for irritation, inflammation and spasm in the digestive tract.* Through its beneficial action on the liver, it increases bile flow and lowers cholesterol levels.*

Licorice also appears to enhance immunity by boosting levels of interferon, a key immune system chemical that fights off attacking viruses.* It also contains powerful antioxidants as well as certain phytoestrogens that can perform some of the functions of the body's natural estrogens; very helpful during the menopause. Glycyrrhizinic acid also seems to stop the growth of many bacteria and of viruses such as influenza A.*
