This week’s health food product review and here we have another favorite staple of mine, which is the Golden Preserve(Chywanaprash) by Pukka Herbs.
Chyawanprash is an Ayurvedic tonic which is typically a mixture of medicinal herbs, spices, amla fruit, ghee and honey.
Amla fruit is one of the main ingredients of Chyawanprash and is a prized herb of Ayurvedic medicine. Amla berry is a great natural source of Vitamin C for supporting the immune system, adrenals and thymus glands.
The herbs and spices Chyawanprash contains such as ashwagandha, cardamom etc have been shown to have many therapeutic benefits including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and even potential anti-cancer properties.
Pukka Herbs are an excellent manufacturer of various high quality herbal supplements, teas and other products. Today I am reviewing the Golden Preserve(Chywanaprash) by Pukka Herbs on the blog.
The Natural Health Blogger’s Review
I have been taking Chyawanprash as a daily tonic for many years now and it is a firm favorite herbal remedy of mine for supporting overall health and vitality.
Chyawanprash is a great herbal remedy for preventing “adrenal fatigue” and burnout due to the rich Vitamin C content from the Amla fruit and makes for a great natural “pick me up”.
I find a teaspoon of Chyawanprash provides an excellent natural energy boost and is a much healthier alternative for boosting energy levels than resorting to stimulants such as caffeine.
Having suffered for many years with chronic digestive issues, I can say that taking Chyawanprash daily has definitely helped to improve my gastrointestinal health. This isn’t surprising as many of the herbs and spices that Chyawanprash contains have properties such as stimulating appetite, acting as a carminative, reduce inflammation and anti-microbial properties to kill opportunistic microbes.
Chyawanprash has a sweet and sour taste due to the amla fruit, ghee, sugar and honey. Chyawanprash is one of these foods that you either love or hate the taste of. My favorite way to consume Chyawanprash is by eating it directly off the spoon(as pictured above).
If you are not a fan of the taste of Chyawanprash you can add it to your favorite herbal teas such as rooibos, nettle leaf, liquorice or add it to foods such as wholefood bars to disguise the taste.
I would definitely recommend our readers to check out Chyawanprash as an excellent time honored ancient herbal remedy for supporting optimal health and well-being.
