  1. is this ajashwagandhadi leham good to put some weight??

  2. Is this leham good for developing immunity or is there any other leham for immunity development

  3. K.V.Padmanabha Raju says:

    What is the dosage of leham? How long it should be used to experience the aphrodisiac strength? Should it be taken with milk? Pl. Explain.

  4. Is aswagandhaadi leham as effective as the non veg version. what are the drawbacks of aswagandhaadi leham compared to ajaaswagandhaadi?
    also are there other ayurvedic medicines that are nonveg in nature? if so, could you kindly list them so that the patient knows beforehand what he is getting into.

    • Hello Vin, Aja ashwagandhadi lehyam is a big embarrassment to many vegetarians.
      Please note that some manufacturers label it as ashwagandhadi lehyam, and yet, it contains aja mamsam or chaga mamsam as an ingredient.
      So, it is very important to read the ingredients, rather than go with the name of the product.
      For easy understanding, let us assume that Aswagandhadi lehyam = veg version
      and Aja ashwagandhadi lehyam = non veg version.

      both the variants are targetted towards
      1. To improve strength of the muscles,
      2. To relieve mental fatigue,
      3. As a medicine for treating unreasonable tiredness
      4. To restore strength of people who have been medicated or who have been ill for quite a long period
      5. To improve digestive power.

      So, Aja ashwagandhadi lehyam (non veg) has more effect on point number 1, than plain ashwagandhadi lehyam.

      From point 2 to point 5, both are equally capable. I would even say that plain version is better in improving digestive power than the non veg version.

      I will make a list of non veg Ayurveda medicines and will publish it soon. Thanks for the valuable advice.

  5. thank you very much doctor for that quick reply.

    which ayurvedic medicine would you suggest to improve the strength of muscles if the vegetarian ashwagandhadi lehyam is not that effective for point 1.

    also all of us are eagerly waiting for the list of medicines containing nonveg.

  6. Bijukannan(30yrs) says:

    Is it better to take mrutasanjeevani kashayam with aswagandadilehyam?Then what is the dosage & taken method ?

    • Dear Mr Biju Kannan,
      Please take Mrita Sanjeevani Suraa / kashayam only if it is prescribed to you by a doctor.
      Aswagandhadi lehyam can be taken as a general supplement. in a dose of 1 table spoon in the morning, after food with half a glass of milk. But it is not a general rule. The dose needs to be confirmed with a doctor.

  7. I have take the non veg one I hope it does work..
    and I have little worry about it is side affect ..

  8. Ajamamsam means its an ingredient of goat or other?

    In what form its been extracted from?

  9. is it good for body building when compare to other non-Ayurveda supplements(protein powder…etc)…

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Such a comparison is difficult to make. This lehyam is a good supplement for body building for those who are accustomed to non veg food.

  10. i brought ajaswagandhadhi leham, daily 8.00pm to 9.00pm i ll b @ gym, i would like to know its dosage & when it can have( after dinner or before dinner)

  11. Is this paste also good to enhance the sideeffects of colon- cancerteatment with chemo?
    I use it two time a week and its enforcing my energy, question is tumors love sugars and its quite sweet, but may not harmfull.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It is one of the widely used herbal product to boost the strength while undergoing chemoptherapy. It boosts the immune system and overall stamina of the patient.
      For patients undergoing chemo, a healthy dose of one teaspoon per day, in the morning, after food is advisable.
      Ashwagandha herb increases muscle strength and is a good anti oxidant. It also boosts immunity and mental strength.
      The other ingredients and spices along with sugar act together.
      Just the presence of sugar can not be considered for tumor growth. Hope the point is clear.
      Wish you good health.

  12. My daughter is 5 years old, i have started giving her this Ajashwagandhadi lehyam, is it good for her? she doesn’t eat her food and has lost weight. i just want her to look healthy and be fit and eat her food as normal kids do.can i give her any other arishtam. kindly advice,


    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      For kids (even for adults for that matter), it is better to give any medicine after consulting an Ayurvedic doctor only.
      Please note Ajaswagandhadi lehyam contains non veg ingredient.

      • Dear Dr,

        Request you to clarify the following:

        1. There is a formulation in the market consistinh 0of Aswagandha, Brahmi, Jatamamsi, Satavari, Gokshura,Shanka Pushpi and sugar. Understand it has some chemical preservativ. It tastes good and smells good meaning it has artificial flavours also. Is it advisable to go with this with chemicals or can one prepare ones own formulation with the above herbs.
        2. Amla, Bringaraj, black seasame seeds, cow ghee and honey each one part and jagary/candy sugar 4 parts is advised to be mastricated into a smooth paste to take to recover hair (re-growth/reverse gryeing of hair). it is advised to be taken with a glass of milk . Can one have this lehya with milk mixed with the formulation at point 1 above?
        Please reply

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Dear Mr Murali, The no. 1 formula can of course be made at home, but availability of herbs in small quantity and the procedure will be a little tricky. Most of the herbal jams, syrups and all kashayams that are available in market have preservative. So, I presume it is safe to take the one you have bought, assuming that the preservative levels are under permitted range.

          The formula 2, can be had along with formula 1, along with milk. yes.

  13. is it increase our fat?

  14. Hi Dr. Hebbar,

    Your post has been very helpful, my wife has been prescribed this leham after child birth, is it ok for her to have non vegetarian food while having this leham ? this is the last item of the prescriptions, she has to have 10gms before dinner.


  15. Doctor,
    I heared about this aswagandha lehyam wil reduce the blood pressure.(http://ashwagandhabenefits.com/). If we have the normal blood pressure , will having aswagadhalehyam reduce us to a lower blood pressure problem ?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      The whole herbs act by the effect of multiple active principles. The action is based on the defect in the body. Hence, whole herbs, when used as medicine, have very few or nil side effects, as opposed to usage of chemicals / isolated plant extracts.
      Please also note that Ashwagandha lehyam contains many other ingredients other than Ashwagandha. Let me know if my explanation is unclear.

  16. can you suggest something for weight loss.

  17. Does Ajaswagandhadi lehyam increse cholestrol?

  18. I also read that taking Ajaswagandhadi lehyam is good to lower blood pressure. Is this true? Could you provide your valuable reply for this.

  19. Sir,

    Your efforts are really commendable, Recently I started using Ajaswagandhadi Lehyam twice in a day, Is this is suitable for weight gain or I have to change. Please suggest me a product to weight gain.

    Thank you,

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It is one of the best product for weight gain, provided you are ok with non veg ingredient.
      Follow these rules along with it to enjoy fortified effects –
      exercise – half an hour a day
      meat soup – at least twice a week
      lot of fruit, fruit juices, fruit salads all through the week
      pepper, ginger and turmeric as food ingredients.

  20. Aradhana says:

  21. Sir now am 24. am very slim. I want to start ajaswagandhadhi leham. tell me please what is the dosage and taking milk is it compulsory or not with this leham ?

  22. Thank you Sir..

  23. Jagadish Kumar says:

    I am taking aswagandha lehyam since few days
    will be helpful to my body to gain stamina vigour &
    vitality,i am having diabetic which i am having ayurvedic medicine. Will it be helpful or will increase the sugar level. pl. suggest?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It might increase sugar levels. Check your sugar levels for two successive months and if the sugar levels are going up, then you may need to stop this lehyam.

  24. dear dr,does aswagandha lehyam causes renal colic ,renal calculus ,splenic flexure syndrome or any gas entrapments in any part of the colon.kindly reply.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Dear sir, This lehyam does not cause renal colic or renal colic. But in some people it may cause minor digestion problem, since it is a non veg product and is a bit heavy to digest.
      The veg version of Aswagandhadi Lehyam does not have this issue of any gas formation or difficulty in digestion.

  25. esochi60 says:

    Dr Hebbar,

    As Robert pointed out in a previous reply, some allopathic doctors claim that sugar may promote tumor growth and propose a ketogenic diet.

    In Ayurveda, proteins (meat) is thought to be responsible for tumor growth.

    What is your stand, based on your intepretation of the samhita’s and your personal practice.

    Thanks for sharing your knowlegde with us.

  26. Sir now iam 21,what is the dosage to eat ajaswagamdhadhi leham for me.

  27. Patrycja says:

    Dear dr, since i had read all of the post about how to take Aswagandhadi Lehyam i am confused because of the fact that half of them say after and half before food. Is it always safe to have a milk if we are about to have or just had a meal which should not be combined with milk? Thank you in advance for replying.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If you are okay with small bit of spices, Ashwagandhadi Lehyam can be taken before food, with milk. If you have any sensitive stomach, gastritis or low digestion power, it makes sense to take this after food.
      If you have a meal which should not be combined with milk, then it makes sense to AVOID milk along with Ashwagandhadi lehyam.
      It makes sense to take it with water. Hope it is clear now. regards.

  28. Doctor,

    Is ajaswagandadi lehyam useul to improve sperm count and motility? Can it reduce prostate cysts or blocks?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It is helpful to improve sperm count and motility.
      But it can be said affirmatively that it helps to reduce prostate cysts or blocks.

  29. what is d diff. B/w ashwagandha nd ashwagandhadi lehyam

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Ashwagandha is the name of herb – Withania somnifera. Its root is off immense health benefits.
      Ashwagandhadi lehyam is an herbal jam prepared with the above said ingredients. The herb Ashwagandha is the main ingredient of this product. It is available in two forms, veg and non veg.

  30. Pampanagouda says:

    Dear DR, What is the function of ingredient SITA in Ajaswagandham as it is 50% of the rasayanam

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Sita is white sugar candy. It gives natural preservation to the medicine, acts as the media / base and also provides the nutritive value.

  32. Hai Dr. J V Hebbar, Recently i was searching for Ajaswagandhadi leham Reviews and Opinions from experts in online at last i came across through your blog and i was surprised and amazed by the replys and responses by you. Dr iam facing a problem since i was a kid. Traveling sickness, vomiting while traveling, i have been through many Doctors from Ayurveda to Allopathic but there was no 1% improvement, I have major issue of pitham, vomiting pale Yellow water like substance in the morning where my almost day gets worse. recently i have been to kotakal Ayurveda Clinic where they have prescribed me a lehyam called ajaswangandhadi leham, soon after taking it for 2 Days one day i started Continous Vomiting, Lose Motion and Tiredness. As a matter of fact iam a Pure Vegeterian.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      That is a little unfortunate to know, because Ajaswagandhadi lehyam is having non veg ingredient, that might be the reason behind vomiting.

  33. I wish to gain 10kgs of weight to get my ideal weight.i started to take ashwagandadilehyam for a weak.but no change occur.why?

  34. Ranjana says:


    Is this good for women also?.. Is it advicsable to take before/during pregnancy ..would it do any side affect during pregnancy??

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It is safe for woman. But it is not advisable during pregnancy. There are no known side effects with this during pregnancy. But to be on the safer side, it is best to avoid any extra Ayurvedic supplements during pregnancy.

      If you wish to get only the pure veg version, very few companies manufacture it. One such company that I know is – Alva Pharmacy, Mangalore.
      call 08258-262241 for courier service for this product.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      To increase mass, aja mamsa rasayanam is better than aswagandha rasayanam. Aswagandha r. gives more stamina than the other. Better to take only one among the two. I can not give guarantee for you weight goals. General dose for anyone is one spoon with milk, once or twice a day, before food.

  51. Hi Dr JV Hebbar,
    I’m using Ashwagandha lehyam along with bramhi grutham in milk with oats as tiffin. can use it like that or do i have to take them seperately. Please clear my doubt?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi Prudhvi, you can take it like that. But I would not recommend it for a long period of time. Please take it only for a couple of months and then stop it.

  52. i have piles.then ,can i use this…

  53. Dr Hebbar

    Is the weight gained from this product is primarily muscle mass? I have lost 25 pounds since January but my objective is to loose body fat and retain lean muscle mass.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If someone is exercising along with taking this medicine, then the weight gain can be said as due to muscle mass.

      • Thanks for the prompt response, what are the properties in this medicine that promotes weight gain…is it proteins or some sort of amino acid profile along with health fats?

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          1. Protein of the goat meat that it contains.
          2. spices, which improve metabolism and correction of digestive enzymes.
          3. herbs like ashwagandha which increase endurance.

  54. Aswin Kavali says:

    Dr Hebbar,

    Just a small doubt. What is the color of this lehyam? Just want to make sure whether i bought the correct one or not!

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Because it is non veg, I have not seen it much. I think it is blackish brown..?!
      If it is labelled properly, there is nothing to fear.

  55. whether ajaswgandhadhi leham helps to increase breast milk as I was given this by my doctor after my delivery…

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, after delivery, it is usually given to strength the muscles of lower abdomen and groin. Shatavari or medicines with Shatavari are the best to improve breast milk. Ask your doctor.

  56. Dr Hebbar,

    Are you familiar with the medicine”Garcinia Cambogia”?

  57. srikanth says:

    Hi sir,
    What is the difference between aswagandhadi lehyam and ajaaswagandhadi lehyam.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      The two terms are used inter-changeably. If you read Aja aswagandhadi lehyam, surely, it is a non veg product, as explained above.
      If you read it as Aswagandhadi lehyam, there is 50 % chance that it is the Ajaswagandhadi L. But some companies manufacture veg version and name it as Aswagandhadi lehyam.
      Look into the ingredient list, if it contains anything like Chagamamsam, Ajamamsam, etc, then it is a non veg product.

  58. SREEDHAR says:

    dear Dr. hebbar, i have tried many medicine but my body weight never increased much except 3-4KGs (iam 184 cm, 64KG wwt.), 34 years age looks thin and young, no much physical body change from last 10 years, ayurvedic doctor adviced to take ashwaganda lehyam, is it thr right product for me? after using when i can see a weight change in me? for how many months i need to take?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Dear Sreedhar,
      Ashwagandha Lehyam might help you to lose weight, only if you exercise. It will help reduce the tiredness, and increase stamina, with the help of which, you can exercise and reduce weight.
      Or else, there are better medicines for weight loss. Please consult an Ayurveda doctor (first and best choice) or consult me by email here – http://easyayurveda.com/contact-details/

  59. Rajan P says:

    Dear sir,
    Have any food restriction while taking the leham?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      In some patients it might cause slight constipation.
      It is better to restrict on fried food, heavy to digest non veg food and excessively spicy food stuff.
      It is better to adopt a light food.

  60. Hello,would like to know if ashwagandha for strength in leham form is OK in amla pitta or high pitta condition; am sensitive to heating foods and medications.thanks

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It generates a little heat in the body and in very rare cases, it causes constipation. Try with a small dose for a week or consult an Ayurveda doctor directly.

      • Thank you for your helpful response. I was advised this by a ved,Would like to know though whether this mixture (lehyam) is less heating than ashwagandha alone eg capsules.Thanks.

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          If it is advised by your doctor, it must be the right one for you. Try it for a week and revert back to your doctor if you observe any excess heat. It is better to go with the advice of your doctor than self judging on medicines.

  61. Dr. Hebbar, you mentioned that Ashwagandha could be veg or non veg. I have tried finding the veg version but in vain. Both Companies Nagarjuna and Arya Vaidya Sala has the non veg version (no labeling is done but seeing the ingredients mentioned by you, one can jump to the non veg conclusion).
    Can you please suggest some companies who make veg version. Also, is taking Ashwagandha in power form less effective than the leham form?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Alva Pharmacy (can be contacted at – 08258-262241 / 08258 – 262600) makes a veg version of this lehyam. It can not be said that taking Aswagandha alone can be less powerful. Stamina wise, both should be quite similar in efficacy.

  62. sir,
    can i use ashwagandhadi without milk?is it necessry to drink milk with this lehyam.?im a hosteler…is thre any altrnatives rathr than milk?

  63. Hello, I get kaph (or mucous) with certain foods, and also a little higher pitta. Is it ok for me to take ashwagandha. Also, what is the difference in leham and pure ashwagandha capsules in terms of effect on digestive system. Thank you.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, you can take Ashwagandha. But it might cause slight Pitta increase. Lehyam is a bit hard to digest when compared to Ashwagandha capsule.

  64. Dr Hebbar, Just read all you replies. You are doing a brilliant job ! God bless you !

  65. does aswagandha helps to improve semen count ?

  66. Dear Dr, is the text for this leham an old one? I thought ayurveda is all vegetarian!
    when did ayurvedic medicines contain animal meat?
    I have bought some from kottakal and so far emptied 3 bottles in 3 weeks.it said .448gm of atmagupta and ashwagandha in one 10gm serving.this means half a gram in 10gm right?also sita is about 50% of the product.is this refined white sugar or unrefined jaggery?if its refined then I’m not taking it.Except for a little body heat increase I like this product.

  67. Dear Doctor can you please tell me which medicine should I take for hand tremor ,pls advice …..thanks

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hand tremor may be a symptom of parkinson disease, Vata imbalance, alcohol withdrawal etc. The cause, the underlying disease etc needs to be evaluated. Please consult a doctor in person. Do not rely on online advice.

  68. Dear Dr, Just curious to know if people with Adrenal fatigue benefit from Ajaswagandhai. Also are there any side effects reported especially in women. I find that I may have overstressed myself over the past years via work and family. I’ve lost a good amount of hair over the years and it just doesn’t grow as fast as it used to even on the rest of my body. I’m in my late 30’s and feel not everyone is experiencing what I’m going through.
    thanks julie

  71. sir lehyam and rasayanam this same?

    • i bought sitaram aja aswagandha rasayanam and
      kottakkal ajaaswagantdha lehyam which is best?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Leham means herbal jam, like CHyawanprash.
      Rasayanam means the medicine that is used for rejuvenation and anti-aging purpose.
      Most of the lehams are rasayanams. Having said that, there are many churnas which also are called rasayanam, like Pippali rasayanam.
      In case of Ajaswagandhadi, lehyam and rasayanam both are same.

  74. rajanna says:

    Dear Doctor, My doctor prescribed Ajaswagandhadi Leham which I am taking since a week. I am taking this after dinner with half a glass of warm milk. Though I am a non-vegetarian, I was under the impression that all ayurvedic products are only vegetarian. After reading your replies, I did check the bottle and it contains, ajamamsam. You replies are very informative. Kindly keep up the good work which helps us to know many unknown things. Thank you.

  81. sir, from which age can we consume ashwagandhadhi legyam (veg and non-veg variety) – can small children take this or should it be taken only after a consultation with a doctor?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      For children till 16 years of age, whether this or any other, should only be taken after direct consultation.
      As a general health supplement, one teaspoon in the morning, before food with half a cup of milk can be had by anyone other than children, who are not diabetic and non-obese. But in some, it tends to cause constipation. So, some precaution is required.

  85. sir . i get headache feel sleepy by ashwagandha

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      That is why, this or any other herb / medicine should only be taken with doctor’s advice.
