Ashwagandharishta, also known as Ashwagandharishtam, is an Ayurvedic classical formulation. It contains Ashwagandha as the main ingredient which shows positive results in managing stress or anxiety due to its anti-stress properties. The presence of Ashwagandha may also help in managing epilepsy due to its antiepileptic property. Some evidence suggests that Ashwagandharishta may also help in improving the digestive system.
According to Ayurveda, Ashwagandharishtam has Vata balancing and Medhya (improves intelligence) properties which can help in providing relief from the symptoms of anxiety and stress. It also manages Kapha and aids in reducing fatigue. It also has Balya (strength provider) and Rasayana (rejuvenating) properties which further help in reducing fatigue. In addition to that, taking Ashwagandharishta in recommended doses can help in the proper functioning of male sexual performance. Its Vata balancing property helps to balance the aggravated Vata, thereby reducing the symptoms of arthritis.
Ashwagandharishtam is available in liquid/syrup form. You can take 15-20ml Ashwagandharishta or as directed by the physician to get relief from the symptoms of stress and anxiety. Mix it with equal amounts of lukewarm water to dilute its taste a little. Take it once or twice a day, preferably after meals.
Ashwagandharishtam is generally well tolerated and does not have any side effects when taken in the recommended dose. However, it is advisable to consult the doctor before using Ashwagandharishta.
People with kidney problems should consult a doctor before using Ashwagandharishta.
