Chyawanprash – The Famous Ayurvedic Elixir


Chyawanprash – The Ayurvedic Elixir
Long ago, sat in the forest an old wise sage named Chyawan. It has been said that the old wise sage had been sitting in mediation for such a long period of time that he eventually became covered with moss, twigs, leaves and branches. One day, a beautiful princess found herself joyfully singing through the forrest as she played a game while being blindfolded. Accidently, the beautiful princess’s hand had gently grazed the head of sage Chyawan. According to the rules of the kingdom – whomsoever the beautiful princess touches will be destined to be her husband as she was only to touch one man in her lifetime.

“Restore Youthfulness & Vitality”

How could such a beautiful princess marry an old man? Suprisingly, sage Chyawan agreed to marry the young princess; however he insisted several months of preparation. During these months of preparation sage Chyawan sought out a combination of herbs which would restore his youthfulness and vitality so that he might offer to his newly beloved wife many years of conjugal bliss and joy. After the several months of preparation the young beautiful princess had returned to marry the now handsome and youthful Chyawan. Due to the remarkable rejuvenating qualities of this formula – “Chyawanprash”, it has for thousands of years been esteemed as an Ayurvedic Elixir.
