A Powerful Healing Tonic: Saraswata Aristhtam

A Powerful Healing Tonic: Saraswata Aristhtam

Product Highlight

Saraswata Arishtam is a liquid remedy commonly used to improve Smruti (memory), concentration and mental clarity. It works to slow the aging process and lengthen Ayu (life expectancy) by strengthening Bala (the immune system). It is ideal for people who read, sing or write for long periods of time. It improves both voice tone and strength. According to the Ayurvedic tradition, this arishtam was specially formulated by Lord Dhanvantari and is helpful for people of all ages.

The different herbs in this product combine to form a powerful healing tonic for the body's systems. Medha increases intelligence, while Kanti improves skin complexion and shine; Vak Vishuddhikara improves the pronunciation of words. Hrudya acts as a cardiac tonic; Rasayanavara is one of the most potent Ayurvedic rejuvenatives and Param Ojaskara improves Ojas, which is the body's source of immunity and vitality. Rajodosha Hara detoxifies the uterus and other female reproductive organs so it is useful in reversing infertility in women. 

Saraswata Arishtam balances all three of the Doshas. It contains 5–10% self-generated alcohol in each bottle. This self-generated alcohol and the water present in the product help to deliver the active herbal components faster and more efficiently into the body.
