Chyawanprash Health Benefits

Usually in winter we all start taking extra care of our health. We start exercising, consuming more nutritive food and health supplements which enhances our immunity. We start eating Chyawanprash in winters though we all know that it is very useful to have it round the year but we generally take it during winters as in winters our digestion capacity is more likely to increase. And we can digest the food which are giving warmth and energy to us and it can be digested by normal appetite also.

Chyawanprash is a delicious nutritive avaleh that has been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years, which offers a wide range of health benefits.
