Chyawanprash Ingredients

A large number of Companies are engaged in the manufacturing of Chyawanprash, therefore the composition differs from one brand to another. The herbs that are brought to use varies from 25 to 80 in number, however, one ingredient that remains unchanged is Amla. Infact, it is one of the prime herbs used for preparing Chyavanprash. Other vital ingredients consist of cinnamon, honey, asparagus, dried catkins, ghee, dehydrated sugar cane, turmeric and ashwagandha. Beet root is quite often used in the preparation of Chyavanprash, which is not because it offers specific health benefits, but due to the fact that it is inexpensive and adds to the taste.
