During our ancient times, the food itself was medicine. There used to be the application of home remedies or ayurvedic medicines first to combat any disease or infection. But now with the emergence of a busy lifestyle, we have become more inclined towards modern medicines, genetically modified food, and chemically-treated drinks. Hence, nowadays it has become a challenge for every parent to keep their children healthy and strong.
Swarnaprashan is a remedy or a way to boost children’s immunity, naturally. It is time-tested and has been practised since ages by our ancestors and gurus. It strengthens overall health and enhances the intellectual power of a child. And most importantly, it does not have any side-effect.
Swarnaprashan is also known as swarnaprashana, suvarnaprashan, suvarnaprashana or swarna bindu prashana in different languages. Swarnaprashan is a unique blend of Swarna bhasma (ash of gold), honey, ghee, vital herbal extracts and ayurvedic ingredients like Bhramhi, Manjishtha, Vacha, Chitrak, etc. It is given orally to a child to build long-lasting health and to increase intellectual power, naturally.
It is not only beneficial for normal children but also for the children who require some ‘extra’ care. The presence of ayurvedic herbs helps in the overall growth and healthy development in children.
