Biochavan
is considered to be one of the most valuable rejuvenating herbal dietary supplements in Ayurveda. Often referred to as chyawanprash, it has been used for thousands of years to promote health and longevity. The basis of Biochavan is the Amalaki fruit. Rich in antioxidants, it has been scientifically proven to have measurable health enhancing benefits including detoxification, improved digestive functioning, and increased immunity.


We use Ashwagandha at the Chopra Center for its tonic and rejuvenative effects. With its beneficial influence on the nervous system it's commonly prescribed for people who complain of fatigue, difficulty concentrating and a general sense un-groundedness. Mixed with warm milk and taken before bed ashwagandha is useful for people with insomnia and anxiety. Ashwagandha has a reputation in Ayurveda as a rejuvenative in conditions of nerve and muscle weakness. It is also used for men and women who are having trouble with fertility.



Triphala
, formulated by Ayurvedic physicians thousands of years ago and used by literally billions of people since, is considered the most effective colon tonic by most health care practitioners. Where other colon formulas are depleting. Triphala is mild, non-habit forming, and a rejuvenative.


Guggulu
is one of Ayurveda’s most important purifying herbs. It cleanses unhealthy tissues, increases the white blood cell count and rejuvenates the skin. It has traditionally been considered the consummate blood detoxifier useful in any condition characterized by congestion or stagnation. In the original texts from over two thousand years ago, Guggulu was recommended to clear the sinuses of congestion, relieve chronic skin disorders, treat obesity, shrink swollen glands and cool inflamed joints. It is fascinating how medical science is now validating many of the traditional uses for this ancient herbal medicine.


Shatavari
is one of the prime rejuvenating herbal medicines in Ayurveda. It is considered particularly helpful in conditions affecting the female reproductive system. Its soothing effect is used in inflammatory conditions and to soothe irritated tissues. Its cooling influence may also benefit the hot flashes of women going through menopause. Shatavari is beneficial in cooling off an irritated digestive system as expressed by heartburn, diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome.
