Graphical Abstract:


Chyawanprash is “the foremost of all rasayanas” known for delaying the ageing process and had been one of the most respected anti-ageing ayurvedic tonic since ages. The content of this manuscript is intended to highlight the scientific basis of use of Chyawanprash by Rishi Chaywan who has claimed Chyawanprash as a wonderful product transforming an old aged person to a rejuvenated one. In this manuscript, authors are hypothesizing the rejuvenative/corrective role of various components of Chyawanprash based on scientific evidences created by different scientist groups all over the world. There is a plethora of scientific evidences that support theory of Rishi Chaywan for his rejuvenation by use of Chaywanprash. A number of reviews and quality standardisation studies have been conducted on this formulation and evidences for individual components have been made available. However, there is lack of systematic scientific studies on preparation as a whole for its wonder therapeutic actions. There is a need to start concerted clinical trials on scientific evidences for components of Chaywanprash so that the formulation can be further promoted on scientific basis all over the world.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Chyawanprash, Rasayana, Rejuvenate, anti-ageing, herbal.
