Organic Chyavanprash

$22.99

Banyan Botanicals’ Organic Chyavanprash is based on a traditional Ayurvedic herbal jam recipe made in a base of amalaki fruit, a natural source of antioxidants.  This excellent rejuvenative nourishes and strengthens the body, providing energy and vitality.  In postpartum, chyavanprash can quell anemia, help with blood circulation, and prevent hair loss and hair thinning.  Due to its abundance in antioxidants, chyavanprash is wonderful for a new mother to consumer after childbirth and throughout her postpartum period.  Ghee aids in weightloss and assimilating vitamins and minerals deeper into the tissues for healing.  Ayurvedic grandmothers recommend new mothers to consume 30 lbs of ghee within the first 3 months postpartum!

Chyavanprash is like the multivitamin of Ayurveda as a daily routine.  Most people know and take Chyavanprash because of its ability to bolster the immune system, promote a healthy metabolism, and support healthy lungs and respiration.  It is also considered one of the best rasayanas (a rejuvenating and nourishing formula) in the Ayurvedic pharmacopoeia.  It is said to build ojas (the essence related to vitality).  In fact, legend has it that Chyavanprash was created for an elderly sage, Chyavana, to help maintain youthfulness and vitality.

Chyavanprash is an excellent method for daily herbal consumption for new mothers due to its unique constituents of cane sugar, ghee, and honey.  Proven effective over a thousand years of use, these nourishing tastes play the important role of “carriers” that allow the herbs to penetrate deep into the tissues.  In a small daily dose (1 or 2 teaspoons), this healthy jam makes for a tasty and very healthful treat.

Banyan Botanicals’ Chyavanprash is based on traditional formulas and has been adjusted to include herbs that are organic, sustainably sourced, and fairly traded.  This tridoshic formula stimulates metabolism and enkindles the digestive fire without aggravating pitta.  It balances vata (especially vital for new mothers) and kapha while strengthening the body against the effects of a stressful lifestyle.  The energizing herbs bolster the immune system and help maintain health and well-being throughout the year.

Thousands of years after Chyavanprash was first formulated, Western science has proposed the free radical theory of aging—the theory that normal aging results from oxidative damage to cells caused by free radicals, which are unstable atoms produced during normal metabolic processes in the body.

Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit this oxidation process and can be found in large amounts in fruits and vegetables. The body naturally seeks to maintain balance by making use of antioxidants produced internally and obtained through ingestion of certain foods and supplements. Antioxidant molecules bind with free radicals in such a way that inhibits the damage to tissues that they can cause. Thus foods and supplements rich in antioxidants are generally considered to be health-promoting.

The Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) assay is one of the most accepted methods for measuring the quantity of antioxidants in a substance. The following chart compares the test results of Banyan Botanicals Chyavanprash with various fruits and vegetables known for their health benefits.

As illustrated in the following chart, 15 grams of Chyavanprash (1 heaping teaspoon) is shown to have the same ORAC 5.0 value as the combined total of 1 avocado, 1 kiwi, 1 tomato, and a portion of broccoli, celery, potato, and romaine lettuce!

*The above graph illustrates the results of an ORAC 5.0 full-spectrum analysis of Banyan Chyavanprash compared with various fruits and vegetables known for their health benefits. The analysis consists of five types of tests that evaluate the antioxidant capacity of the material against five of the primary oxygen radicals found in humans. ORAC 5.0 includes all five tests. The five types of tests are: ORAC Peroxyl Radical, HORAC Hydroxyl Radical, NORAC Peroxynitrite, SORAC Superoxide, and SOAC Singlet Oxygen.

Chyavanprash is made with jaggery, which is a whole, unrefined, raw sugar derived from cane juice.  Banyan Botanicals calls it “cane sugar” because it is a more familiar name.  The raw sugar and honey act as a medium for the herbs, carrying them deeper into the to the parts of the body where they are needed.

DIRECTIONS
1–2 teaspoons, once or twice daily, or as directed by your health practitioner.

This jam tastes delicious on its own right off the spoon, mixed into a cup of warm plant-based milk or water, or spread on toast.  The milk acts as a carrier to the deep tissue layers.  You can also use the jam to support the lungs, the digestive fire (agni), and the reproductive system.  It is truly a versatile product that is just as delicious as it is beneficial!

Chyavanprash does not need to be refrigerated, but it is important to keep it out of direct sunlight.
