  2. Pardeep M Bhatia says:

    A wonderful wonder drug from Ayurveda. My personal experience tells that it can repair even bone remodeling, useful in pain management, heart disease, could possibly be useful for a number of cancers such as osteosarcoma since my own TMJ seem to be cured.

    Ideally I would like to coming congressional congress but I myself have not reached there yet, so for now it is simply a a grateful and respectful thanks to the Indian Ayurveda and our great old Rishis. After all ” old is Gold several times” in human history.

      But we can send it directly to you, manufactured at – AVN Ayurveda Formulations Pvt. Ltd Madurai, India.

      Let me know if interested.

      Or else, this Indian web store also sells Brahma Rasayana and they claim to ship even to UK – http://www.madanapalas.com/brahma-rasayan-250g-p-377.html

  10. I’m pregnant and i wonder if it is ok to take this???

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      I do not recommend this during pregnancy. Better to avoid this. During lactation, it is fine, but not during pregnancy.

  11. does it helps in overcuming anxiety tics

  12. Jit Senapati says:

    Can it be used for tiredness due to cancer???
    Reply soon

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Ye surely. But if patient is diabetic, then care needs to be taken.
      It is also one of the co-prescribed medicines in patients undergoing chemotherapy.

  13. harshit kankariya says:

    on being having higher cholestrol can brahmarasyana bring it to normal level

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Brahma Rasayana would not do harm, if a person with high cholesterol level takes it. But there are better targeted Ayurvedic medicines to fight cholesterol. Consult your Ayurvedic doctor for right medicine and dose.

  14. Siddharth says:

    what rasayanas or ayurvedic medicines are god for adrenal weakness. I was on prednisone for 6 months a long time ago and feel that my adrenals never recovered completely.

  15. what is the diffrence between Brahma rasyan and Chywan prasa? why do we need to brahma rasyan or chywan prasa if both are giving same benefits?Brahma rasyan is not suitable for youth ?so can we have brahma rasyan and chywan prasa take dose as morning and evng(C.P) will you suggest both?As you know that Brhama rasayan is less avialbility in market

  16. Binu. K says:

    Is a prescription needed to take brahma rasayana, or can i take it without prescription?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If you go to any Ayurvedic shop and ask for it, you will get it without prescription.
      But if you ask me, be it any small or big Ayurvedic medicine, it is always better to consult an Ayurvedic doctor for right dose, timing of medicine intake and right co-drink.

  17. please let me know the side effects if any from this medicine, as my grand father is using it for stage-4 papillary thyroid carsinoma with mets near lumbar l4 and l5 region and also near chest and also lymphonodes are affected.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      I hope your grand father is using this medicine under medical supervision. There are no known side effects with this medicine.
      But it may increase blood sugar levels, since it contains sugar.

  18. March 2010, manufactured Brahmarasayanam of kottakal is still left,more than 1/2.Can I use it? With plain warm milk or can I add bounvita.Please let me know, mine is vatha.Can it be taken regularly like chavanprash for life time?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It can be taken like Chyawanprash for a long period of time. But consult your doctor once, to check how long you actually need it. Since the one you have at your hand is already opened, and it is 2.5 year old, I would suggest you to discard it and buy a new one. You can take it along with bournvita, if you feel comfortable. :)

  19. Khalid Hamza says:

    Can a patient suffering from ulcerative colitis use Brahmirasayana. Will it aggravate the symptoms?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Compared to Chyawanprash, it is a lot less spicy and less likely to upset mucosal lining. Hence, it can be generally assumed to be safe in Ulcerative colitis. But can not guarantee to the full.

  20. Prajakt Rawte says:

    Good morning doctor!!
    I have been having Bramha Rasayan since past 2 months. Everytime I go to buy new bottle, I get a different brand. First I got was from Vaidyaraj Oushadhsala, Thrissur, Kerala, then all of them were from Nagarjuna, Ahmadabad. Which is the best brand? The one from Nagarjuna contains more gooseberry than the other one, I think. Kindly advise.
    -Prajakt

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It is better to buy one particular medicine from one particular brand, when aiming for long term use. Try to buy online.
      Brahma rasayan formula is universal and the same. Hence, it can not be said that Nagarjuna contains more gooseberry.
      Both Vaidyarathnam and Nagarjuna are quite good and reputed brands.

  21. Sir the list of ingredients that u have listed for Brahma Rasayana is from Ashtang Hridayam or from any other source.

  22. Is Brahma Rasayana good medicine for anxiety and panic attacks? I suddenly started getting feelings of severe anxiousness, stress, panic and depression a few months back. I went to the local doctor, no physical problems were found. I don’t want to take anti-depressants. We have some Brahma rasayana at home and I have been taking it every now and again. Please advise.
    Thanks,

    DK

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes, it helps to relieve anxiety. Take it for a week if the symptoms do not improve, consult your doctor.

  23. Is it beneficial in cerebral palsy? My 2 yr old child has it.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes, it is useful to some extent. But consult an Ayurveda doctor directly. There are better medicines and treatments.

  24. Great article doctor.Thanks for a very good explanation
