Abstract:
The use of ghee in suitable conditions with appropriate doses of desired preparations will render various benefits due to its potency to nullify toxins and toxic effects of drugs; and its capability to act as a media to dissolve and enhance the efficacy of the active principles in the drugs used. The Ayurvedic classics have mentioned Rasayana which is described as an herbal or metallic preparation that are health tonics to children, medicines to middle aged and rejuvenators to the elderly. Ashwagandha is used as Rasayana since the ancient time especially for children in the management of malnourishment. This paper details the practical approach in preparing Ashwagandha ghrita by incorporating the traditional knowledge along with the modern technology in drug manufacture.
