by Kottakkal Support June 21, 2024

Steeped in Ayurvedic tradition, Narasimha Rasayanam is an herbal jam formulated with base ingredients of butter, honey, and milk. This time-tested remedy is believed to promote balance within the body's three doshas, vata, pitta, and kapha and supports a range of health concerns. From supporting physical strength and hair health to promoting rejuvenation and cognitive function, Narasimha Rasayanam offers a multifaceted approach to well-being.


Analysis of Narasimha Rasayana's Ingredients Reveals Diverse Health Benefits

A closer look at the individual components of Narasimha Rasayana reveals a wealth of potential health benefits. Over half the ingredients exhibit antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Several herbs, including Amalaki, Shatavari, Haritaki, and Khadira, possess well-documented immunomodulatory effects.

This formula has hepatoprotective qualities thanks to Amalaki, Bhringaraja, Vijayasara, Chitraka, and Khadira. While Chitraka, Shimshapa, Vijayasara, Vidanga, Bhallataka, Bhringaraja, Shatavari, and Jeeraka stand out for their potent antimicrobial activity.

Narasimha Rasayana combats inflammation through the combined action of Chitraka, Shimshapa, Vijayasara, Bhallataka, Bhringaraja, Shatavari, and Amalaki. And additionally, the presence of Chitraka, Vijayasara, Vidanga, and Bhallataka suggests potential anti-cancer properties.

Butter and ghee, both constituents of the formula, contribute further antioxidant activity. While purified iron is used during processing, the use of an iron vessel as mentioned in the Ashtanga Hridaya text raises the possibility of iron enhancing the nutritional and therapeutic value of Narasimha Rasayana.
