Revered for the last two thousand years across India as an 'elixir' of life, health and well-being, this Ayurvedic jam has certainly stood the test of time.

With a sweet, spicy flavour, chyawanprash benefits all three doshas, and is said to rejuvenate and encourage the efficient functioning of the reproductive and immune systems, tissues, heart and lungs.

One serve will provide you with 35% of your daily antioxidant intake, thanks to the 30 plus herbs and spices blended into its amla fruit base.

Chyawanprash can be found in Indian or eastern supermarkets, online, or in specialist health food stores. Store bought varieties are usually made with ghee (clarified butter), so is not suitable for vegans or those on dairy-free diets. If you are vegan or lactose-intolerant, you will have to look for an appropriate variety, or consider the serious undertaking of learning how to make your own!

It is recommended you consume chyawanprash simply by itself or with a glass of warm milk to reap the full benefits, but can also be used on toast or crackers as with any other jam. Taking just before breakfast or going to bed is also ideal.

A serve is considered to be around 1-2 teaspoons for adults, but start out with a smaller quantity and build up from there.
