Benefits of Dasamula Arishtam

Benefits of Dasamula Arishtam

By Vaidya Vishwanath January 25, 2023


Dasamula Arishtam is a liquid herbal formula that supports strength and vitality and helps reduce pain and inflammation. The word dasa means ten and mula means root, so it is an herbal formula containing ten roots.

Arishtams are fermented herbal formulas made with sugar. The sugar self-generates a small amount of naturally occurring alcohol. The sugar helps the herbs taste better, and the small amount of alcohol helps the herbs absorb faster. Ayurveda processes many classical formulas as Arishtams.

Dasamula is a collection of ten roots. Five of the roots are from large trees known as the brihat panchamula which pacifies vata conditions. The other five roots are from smaller shrubs known as the laghu panchamula and they pacify both vata and pitta conditions.

Ten herbal roots by their Sanskrit name.     

  1. Agnimantha
  2. Bilwa
  3. Kashmari
  4. Patala
  5. Shyonaka
  6. Prushniparni
  7. Shaliparni
  8. Bruhati
  9. Gokshura
  10. Kantakari

Dasamula helps our bodies and minds feel strong and vital. It supports all types of weakness related to vata and kapha conditions and supports the respiratory system by helping to reduce mucus from the chest, and ease breathing, cough and cold. Dasamula greatly supports women during postpartum as it rejuvenates strength and helps reduce pain and inflammation.

Dasamula is especially useful for supporting muscles, bones and ligaments by helping to strengthen and relive inflammation. It is also useful for supporting immunity and helping to increase appetite and digestion.

It balances both vata and kapha dosha and supports conditions related to respiratory mucus and neurological weakness that causes head, neck and back pain.

Dasamula Arishtam supports conditions related to vata and kapha imbalance.

  1. Anti-inflammatory (eases inflammation)
  2. Carminative (supports healthy digestion)
  3. Digestive stimulant (increases appetite)
  4. Supports hemoglobin (supports healthy blood)
  5. Hematogenic (supports the formation of red blood cells)

Finding Relief from Constipation: An Ayurvedic Approach

Ayurveda identifies vata dosha, associated with air and space elements, as governing movement in the body, including elimination. When vata becomes imbalanced, its dry and mobile qualities can disrupt the colon's natural flow, leading to constipation. Additionally, weak digestion (agni) can result in ama, a sticky residue that further hinders elimination.
