Although there are tons of options available in the market from powders to tablets which claim to better your health in day-to-day life but nothing can replace Ayurvedic or natural products for building a strong and healthy body. We tend to forget that human body is a wonderful machine and we only need few herbal aids to keep it running smoothly. As the supermarket shelves are being flooded with ultra luxurious packagings, it becomes really difficult to choose the right product for us and our family. We get lured by the tall claims made by these companies and spend hundreds or thousands for little or no result. Incase you have also experienced this uninvited issue, I am here to help you.

1 year from the date of manufacturing
- It is an herbal and Ayurvedic product which is needed in today’s polluted world.
- Most of the ingredients present in it are good for digestion and as we know a healthy liver and stomach is the foundation of a healthy body.
- The ingredients are sourced organically.
- It is suitable for everyone in the family.
- Whether eaten alone or with bread, it gives the same results.
- It is good for the overall health of both the genders.
- It is not bitter in taste. Although it doesn’t taste like our regular bread jams, but it still does the job.
- The product is a little chewy. It’s a little difficult to swallow it in a single bite. One needs to break it down in order to pass it through the food pipe.
Usually natural and herbal products need some time to start showing the results. Same is the case with the above mentioned product. I didn’t feel much of a difference the first few days but later on I noticed that my bowel movements were regular (although I don’t suffer from constipation). Whether it actually fights ailments or improves immune system , it depends on the duration of its usage. I’ll keep you posted about it too.
That’s it in today’s review. I’ll see you lovely people soon with a new post.
Till then, stay happy 😃
