Rasayana Extracts

"Rasayana" is Sanskrit term for the body of knowledge developed by ancient sages that covers the subtle essences of nutrients that rejuvenate and restore various organ systems of our bodies. One could say that "rasa" is the illusive fountain of youth or alchemical substance found in certain herbs and foods that have the power to regenerate. In theory, all rasayanas are tonifying and none have either side effects or risks of overdosing. All are believed to enhance clarity, memory, and longevity. Rasayanas might be preserved in ghee or honey, and they rely on a small number of highly revered extraordinary herbs: amla, ashwagandha, guduchi, shatavari, tulsi, and some 15-30 more.

Ashwagandha Extract, 2 oz.

Ashwagandha holds a premier place in the Ayurvedic pharmacopeia. It is both a rasayana herb, meaning one that aids the quality of life and longevity, as well as an adaptogen, an herb that improves our ability to cope with stress. This herb has a multitude of uses but to understand how research of prized Indian herbs is conducted, it is useful to consider how well an herb protects the patient from damaging changes when exposed to chemical, metallic, or radioactive hazards and how successfully the herb protects against free radicals. Ashwagandha is very high on the list of such valuable herbs, but it is most often used to improve male potency and endurance.
