Chyawanprash - the "Ageless Wonder" - Give your immune system a Boost!
Love that Jam!
Chyawanprash, pronounced CHA-WON- PROSH is a traditional Ayurvedic herbal jam made in a base of Amalaki fruit. Amalaki fruit - or Amla is the richest source of vitamin C known to man. It is often called the Ageless Wonder due to its remarkable rejuvenative properties and its ability to promote vigor, vitality, and youthfulness. This powerful herbal jam is rich in antioxidants, and is known to have phenomenal and profound effects on numerous systems within the body, including: respiratory, nervous, and circulatory systems. While providing energy and vitality to all the cells of the body, it both nourishes and strengthens the immune system.
In Ayurveda, Chyawanprash is the most respected and well known rasayana of all, (sanskrit word describing an elixir of life). This time-tested remedy is certainly remarkable, and a true pillar of a healthy lifestyle. Today it is praised with the same esteem that it was over 4,000 years ago. Literally thousands of years of experience and knowledge are combined in the preparation of Chyawanprash, which makes it one of the most widely recognized and highly respected of all of the Ayurvedic formulas. It serves to gently balance the nervous system, the mind, the respiratory system and helps to promote healthy digestion and elimination.
Tattvas Herbs Chyawanprash is formulated from a traditional recipe that contains nearly 50 herbs, including Ashwagandha, pippali, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon and many other well known herbs and spices in a base of clarified butter and honey. Our formula contains no herbicides, pesticides, chemicals or artificial fillers. This energizing formula is slightly warming, and thus helps to promote healthy digestion and stimulates the metabolism. It is suitable and safe for people of all ages, adults and children alike. Chyawanprash is the supreme anti-stress and anti-aging formula, but is also extremely effective in preventing the common colds and coughs that plague so many of us.
If you are one of the many people who are affected by the common work environment, where daily exposure to many people and all of their germs keep you in a constant state of coughing, sniffling and general low energy - Chyawanprash could be especially helpful for you. Taken on a regular daily basis this amazing tonic has the ability to improve all aspects of health. Most people report that they are no longer bothered by nagging coughs and colds. Many people report that their skin clears up and they look younger than they have in years. Almost all users report that they feel a tremendous amount of new energy and vigor. This is due to the synergy created by combining over forty of the most powerful Ayurvedic herbs in a meticulously prepared base.
Chyawanprash is traditionally taken as a snack on crackers or bread, as the flavor is like a spicy jam, but it can also be taken alone, one teaspoon, one to three times per day. We have also heard of people adding a dose to their protein shake, fruit or vegetable juice, smoothie, or even adding it to coffee or tea as a morning treat - there are endless possibilities with almost countless benefits!
Additonal Info on Chyawanprash
(Reprinted from the YogaJournal.com)
For centuries the Ayurvedic herbal formula chyavanprash has been hailed as the ultimate anti-aging tonic.
Long before there were vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant supplements, there was Chyavanprash, one of Ayurveda's most respected anti-aging foods. Chyavanprash is in the Ayurvedic category of rasayana- a super-concentrated mixture of vitamin-rich herbs and minerals designed to restore spent reserves of vital energy (ojas) and revitalize normal body function. For centuries it's been used to maintain youth and optimal health, and its adaptogenic properties make it an excellent anti-aging and anti-stress tonic.
Its rather unusual name is derived from the legend of Chyavana Rishi, a forest sage who practiced austerities. He kept his body covered with clay and grass so his eyes would shine through like jewels. One day a king by the name of Sharyati and his young daughter came into the forest on a hunt. Upon encountering Chyavana Rishi, the princess, who was perplexed by his shining eyes, poked them with blades of grass. This enraged the sage, which caused the king to appease him by having his daughter marry the rishi. Once having a taste of nuptial bliss with his young bride, Chyavana was keen to to prolong his pleasure.
Ashwini Kumar, the famous Ayurvedic physician, remedied their vast age difference by prescribing kayakalpa, a rejuvenative treatment, for the rishi. This treatment included a ritual bath in a nearby river and eating the herbal formula that became known as chyavanprash.
Chyavanprash has a jamlike texture. It is considered a single entity even though it contains over 40 herbs and minerals, which include ghee, sesame oil, honey, raw sugar, long pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, sandalwood, turmeric, cloves, saffron, amalaki, ashwaganda, shatavari, bala, gudduchi, and gokshura.
The dominant ingredient is amla, also known as amalaki or Indian gooseberry, a long-living tree that produces an intensely sour citrus fruit; it is one of the most powerful rejuvenative herbs in Ayurveda. Each amla fruit, about the size of a golf ball when ripe, contains more than 3,000 mg of vitamin C, a powerful source of antioxidants. Its touch of sweetness also plays a significant role. In Ayurveda honey and sugar are commonly added to certain herbal formulations to act as an anupan, a substance that directs the properties of the herbs deep into the tissues. In the case of chyavanprash, its sweet flavor means it is quickly assimilated into the bloodstream, which helps to better facilitate its active ingredients into cell walls.
Chyavanprash can be used by people of all ages. According to Ayurveda, it decreases vata and kapha and increases pitta doshas. It has a warming, unctuous, and heavy nature that is believed to improve longevity. One teaspoon of chyavanprash jam taken twice daily is often advised. If you buy chyavanprash in powdered form, five grams of the powder should be mixed with one cup of warm water and taken twice daily.
Many sources list the formula as having no specific contraindications, but because chyavanprash can increase pitta dosha, it should be used cautiously if you suffer from aggravated pitta disorders, such as diarrhea or peptic ulcer. And as always, consult an Ayurvedic practitioner before taking this or any other herbal formula.

I discovered this product over a year ago as helpful in boosting the health of my immune system. It has turned out to be invaluable in this capacity. I have also noticed that when my system is indeed fighting a bug I don't succum to illness as I have done in the past. This is a must have product for me now.
And thankfully the great folks at Tattva's have it readily available.

I never had Chyawanprash before so I was a little 'scared' by the way it looked when I opened it up ;) but I absolutely love the taste, it is sweet and slightly spicy and takes care of 'craving sweet' in a healthy way!
I just finished my first 'bottle' and can already tell it works. It helped me to overcome a great tiredness and fatigue along with a tension headache, symptoms I developed after traveling and it felt like my body is fighting an oncoming flu - the symptoms went completely away after 3 days. When I stopped taking it for 2 days (I forgot to take it) the symptoms came back.... that proofs it for me! Now I take it every day and make sure I never run out again, especially over the 'cold season'...

I have been using Tattva's Chyavanaprash for 4 or 5 years now. It is simply the best you can find - as is everything else I have purchased from Tattva's.

The taste is intense and interesting, i personally enjoy it. Some find it too strange because it encompasses all 6 tastes and can be overwhelming for the pallet. The first time i tried it i got an instant energy burst. Like the refreshing effects of smelling peppermint, subtle, quick and effective. Taking it in the morning on its own is very satisfying and satiates any cravings that could arise.

Absolutely delicious-rich and spicy, so it's not as much a 'jam' as some less intense chyavanprash that i've tried. However, the complexity/number of ingredients in this fx and the slightly gritty texture are extremely potent. I love the color and depth of this chyavanprash. I alternate this with a couple of other brands, which I think keeps my system on it's toes. I love Tattva's chayv. particularly in the winter months, b/c it's so spicy and intense. Awesome products all around, and this is no exception. It's pricier than many others, but you can tell the quality is there. You get what you pay for.
