Arogyavardhini Vati

Arogyavardhini Vati
Arogyavardhini Vati as suggested by its name “Arogya-good health, Vardhini-improves” is an Ayurvedic preparation that helps to improve overall health. It is also known as Sarvarog “Prashmani” which signifies a remedy for all kinds of illnesses.
Owing to its ayurvedic property to balance all three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha), it has been used to manage a gamut of health conditions. Arogyavardhini Vati helps to manage the digestive problem due to its Deepan and Pachan properties. It also helps to maintain body weight and other complications of the digestive system by improving metabolism and expelling waste products from the body because of its Shodhana (detoxification) nature. Arogyavardhini Vati is also widely used for skin disorders due to Pitta balancing quality[1]. However, it should be kept in mind that scientific research on Arogyavardhini is very limited, so it is advised to be used after consulting a doctor.
Not much scientific information is available about the side effects caused by the use of Arogyavardhini.
However, always consult an ayurvedic expert before taking this Ayurvedic formulation and follow the dosage strictly. The major concern with self-medicating Ayurvedic preparations is the presence of metal contents like mercury and lead in them.
The sensitive population groups including pregnant, lactating women, children, and people with serious health conditions should avoid Arogyavardhini Vati. People who are advised Arogyavardhini should stick to the prescribed dose strictly. Overdose can pose health issues

Benefits of Arogyavardhini Vati

1.Acne-pimples
A Kapha-Pittaj skin type is generally prone to acne. According to Ayurveda, aggravation of Kapha leads to increased production of sebum and clogged pores. This results in the formation of both white and blackheads. Similarly, aggravation of Pitta is marked by the appearance of some red papules (bumps) and inflammation with pus.
Arogyavardhini Vati is one of the most effective Ayurvedic preparations which help to manage acne or pimples due to its Pitta and Kapha balancing, and Shothahara (anti-inflammatory) properties. It also helps in blood purification by removing toxins due to its Shodhan (detoxification) property[1].

Tips
-Take 1 tablet twice a day with normal water, preferably after meals or as directed by your physician
-Consult your doctor if you are taking allopathic medications before consuming multi-herb preparations like Arogyavardhini.

2.Constipation
Constipation is a condition in which a person faces infrequent bowel movements and/or difficulty in passing stools. According to Ayurveda, constipation is caused due to an aggravation of Vata dosha. Consuming junk foods, excess intake of coffee or tea, sleeping late at night, high-stress level, and depression are some of the factors that aggravate Vata dosha in the large intestine and cause constipation. Arogyavardhini Vati is an Ayurvedic preparation that helps to manage the condition of constipation due to its Vata balancing and Rechan (laxative) properties[1].

Tips
-Take 1 tablet twice a day with normal water, preferably after meals or as directed by the physician
-Consult your doctor if you are taking allopathic medications before consuming multi-herb preparations like Arogyavardhini.

3.Obesity
Obesity is a common condition that chiefly occurs either due to bad eating habits or lack of physical activities. It is a condition in which indigestion leads to the accumulation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) in the form of excessive fat. This leads to an imbalance of Meda Dhatu which results in obesity. Arogyavardhini Vati is an effective Ayurvedic preparation that helps to reduce weight by reducing Ama due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachana (digestion) properties. It also helps to eliminate the waste product from the body because of its Shodhan (detoxification) nature[1].

Tips
-Take 1 tablet twice a day with normal water, preferably after meals or as directed by the physician
-Consult your doctor if you are taking allopathic medications before consuming multi-herb preparations like Arogyavardhini


4.Indigestion
Indigestion can present as a feeling of fullness as soon as you start eating, bloating, or pain in the abdomen. According to some studies, Arogyavardhini is suggested to be useful for individuals suffering from indigestion and irregular bowel movements[3].
According to Ayurveda, indigestion is termed as Agnimandya. This occurs due to an imbalance of Pitta dosha. In this condition, Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) is formed due to Mand Agni (low digestive fire). Whenever the consumed food is left undigested due to Mand Agni, it results in the formation of Ama, thereby causing indigestion.
Arogyavardhini Vati helps in the management of indigestion by digesting the Ama due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachana (digestion) properties[1].

Tips
-Take 1 tablet twice a day with normal water, preferably after meals or as directed by the physician
-Consult your doctor if you are taking allopathic medications before consuming multi-herb preparations like Arogyavardhini.

5.Anorexia
Arogyavardhini contains herbs like Kutaki and Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica) which have laxative properties. These properties according to Ayurveda may help to promote digestive fire, clear body channels for the nutrients to reach the tissues, balance fats in the body, and remove toxins by improving the digestive system. However, more scientific researchers are required to back the use of these properties[3].
Due to low digestive fire (Mand Agni), the food eaten might not get digested properly, resulting in the formation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion). This might lead to anorexia or loss of appetite, also known as Aruchi in Ayurveda. It is a condition that results in the imbalance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas. There are also some psychological factors that lead to incomplete digestion of food, causing insufficient secretion of gastric juice in the stomach. All these factors in the long term may contribute to loss of appetite.
Arogyavardhini Vati is one of the most effective Ayurvedic preparations which is used in the management of anorexia due to its Tridoshahar (balancing Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) properties. It improves digestion due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties[1]

Tips
-Take 1 tablet twice a day with normal water, preferably after meals or as directed by the physician
-Consult your doctor if you are taking allopathic medications before consuming multi-herb preparations like Arogyavardhini.

6.Anemia
Anemia refers to a lack of red blood cells that reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. According to Ayurveda, anemia is known as Pandu Roga which occurs due to an imbalanced state of any of the three doshas, mainly Pitta dosha. This condition might also occur due to any of the following reasons like malnutrition, wrong or poor eating habits, low digestive fire, or loss of blood. All these conditions might disturb Rasa Dhatu and Rakta Dhatu which finally result in Pandu Roga.
Arogyavardhini Vati helps to manage anemia due to its Tridosha (mainly Pitta) balancing property. It also helps to improve digestion because of Deepan (appetizer) and Pachana (digestion) properties, thus helping in minimizing the symptoms of Anemia[1]

Tips
-Take 1 tablet twice a day with normal water, preferably after meals or as directed by the physician
-Consult your doctor if you are taking allopathic medications before consuming multi-herb preparations like Arogyavardhini.

7. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is also known as Grahani. It is caused due to an imbalance of Pachak Agni (digestive fire) which is followed by diarrhea, indigestion, stress, emotional problems, etc. This is another condition in which Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) is formed inside the body. This Ama formation can cause the accumulation of mucus in motion. Such undigested food may also result in frequent motion after meals, where stool consistency is sometimes loose and sometimes hard followed by mucous.
Arogyavardhini Vati is helpful in managing irritable bowel syndrome as it aids in the digestion of Ama. It further helps to control mucus in the motion and the urge of frequent passing of stool due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachana (digestion) properties[1].

Tips
-Take 1 tablet twice a day with normal water, preferably after meals or as directed by the physician
-Consult your doctor if you are taking allopathic medications before consuming multi-herb preparations like Arogyavardhini.
