How to take cow urine?
In traditional But to be on the safer time, for all practical purposes, it is better to drink distilled cow urine.
Since boiling is involved, cow urine distillate will be free from microbes.
There are many companies that sell distilled cow urine. But if you can get fresh urine, you can consider preparing the distillate by the following method:
Cow urine is taken in a pressure cooker. the opening at the top, where whistle is to be placed is attached with a heat resistant pipe. the other end of the pipe opens to a clean vessel kept dipped in water. the cow urine in the pressure cooker is heated and the cow urine distillate is collected in the vessel.
The pressure cooker catches the smell of cow urine, and hence can not be used for any other purpose.
The distilled cow urine can be used for 1 – 2 months, if preserved in an air tight container.

Cow urine dose:
For a start, it is better to start with a 3 -4 drops of cow urine one or two times a day.
After a week, the dose can be increased up to one spoon two times a day. While there is no fixed dose as such, I suppose, that is the maximum advisable dose of cow urine (or distillate).
If it is freshly available, then it can be taken as such, within 10 – 15 minutes of collecting it.

Cow urine drink  – precautions: 

  • Cow urine may be infected, in case the cow is infected.
  • It is not advisable to store raw cow urine for more than an hour.
  • It is better to take the cow urine for the prescribed time period only.  For example, if  used for indigestion, cow urine should be take only till proper digestion power is restored.
  • It can be used for long time of 3 -4 months, in the treatment of obesity, chronic inflammatory conditions etc.
  • Cow urine has some benefits for people with diabetes, but it is better to consult Ayurvedic expert.

Who should avoid cow urine? 

  • People who are very lean, emaciated, tired.
  • People suffering from fatigue.
  • Children below age of 10.
  • People suffering from male infertility.
  • People with lack of sleep.

Remember: cow urine therapy is not nourishing in nature. It is a detoxifying and cleansing in nature. Hence a concept of cow urine tonic is not quite apt.

Can I drink milk and take cow urine at the same time?

There are many instances in which cow urine and milk are used together. –
For example, Panchagavya – cow ghee, sour curd, urine, cow dung water and cow milk. This combination itself is used as medicine and also as ingredient in other medicines such as Panchagavya Ghrita.
So, cow urine can be consumed along with milk. One teaspoon of cow urine along with quarter or half a cup of milk is fine to have.
Cow urine is hot, pungent, strong, piercing in nature, so, its excess hotness and other related qualities are reduced in strength due to the sweetness, coolness of milk.

  1. Rajesh Sharma says:

    I am confused as I have been informed the cows urine assists male fertility but your advice seems to be the contrary. Please advise

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Cow urine has got any positive effect on infertility and this is based on Ayurvedic textual reference. Hope it is clear.

      • Ramesh kakkar says:

        Sir, it is good to drink godhan ark to improve the motility, morphology and decreasing pus cells in the semen. As my sperm count is OK but rest of the parameter is not OK also I am diabetic and high bp. Pls advise I am taking godhan ark

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Hi, if only pus cells are present, it makes sense to use Godhan Arka (cow urine distillate) for a period of 2 – 3 weeks.

  2. Dinesh Kumar Shukla says:

    I Have Started Godhan Ark since 20 Days & feeling Better.I am Having High Blood Pressure & Diabetes.

  3. we are taking cow urine for last 15 days . fresh cow urine is drunk after one hour . is it right way or wrong?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Assuming that cow is not having any disease, it is a good habit.
      Distilled cow urine is safer than raw cow urine.

      It is better to limit cow urine intake for a couple of months only.

  4. How does cow urine act in the cases of obesity?
    how should the treatment be done?
    does it really help to curve appetite, or to loose weight? what is the mechanism?
    If I live in the usa where can I find it?

    thank you so much

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Being in USA, it will be very difficult to find out cow urine. It acts by decreasing lipid uptake from the intestines. It breaks down the cholesterol plaques from the tissues and arteries. It helps to lose weight by avoiding cholesterol intake and deposition.

      • I have cholesterol high

        will it be helpful to reduce the same ?( my age 30 years)

        my mother have diabetes and cholesterol and she is at 60 years

        how cow urine or ark can be taken to get cured?

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Cow urine alone might not be helpful for comprehensive treatment. Please consult a doctor in person for right dose.

        • ok but i am already having ayurvedic medicine , cow urine will support in diabetes and cholesterol?

          • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

            Yes it would. But cow urine therapy does not suit all. Hence you need to exercise precaution. Start with only 2 ml of cow urine in the morning for the first month and observe for results. If you feel excessive body heat, then take a cup of milk, half an hour after taking the distilled Urine.

          • ok i m going for cow urine ark..


        • Sir, I inform you that I have been using walnuts of 2 kernels daily, And after some time my cholestrol is very low.Please take 2 or 3 kernels daily

  5. Please i would like to know the mechanism by which it helps against obesity, and how long does it take to work?
    thank you so much

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Cow urine as per Ayurveda has a ‘kshara’ quality. Cow urine helps to lower cholesterol deposition in tissues and inside of arteries. It helps to to early disintegration and excretion of lipid molecules. It also avoid excess absorption of fat molecules from intestines. It is always better to consult your Ayurvedic doctor before starting this. Under medical supervision, cow urine can be taken for a couple of months. It should not be continued for more than 4 months, according to me.

  6. Bhakti says:

    My father is having High blood pressure and so kidney stone has occurred, can cow milk can help to decrease the stone size? can i get ready made cow urine which will help him?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, it is better to consult an Ayurvedic doctor directly, rather than self medicating with cow urine or any herbs. There are lot many choices of Ayurvedic products for renal stones.

  7. Pulkit says:

    Thanks for the wonderful information. Is cow urine helpful in muscular dystrophy? If yes, what should be the dosage?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Like I’ve explained in the article, cow urine is not nourishing. It has this cleansing, clearing properties. Hence its use in muscular dystrophy can be said as very ‘limited’. There are many massage techniques and treatments for muscular dystrophy. Consuting a good Ayurvedic doctor near you seems a good idea.

  8. hi
    Can someone suffering from anxiety & insomnia take godhan ark . In what doses should it be taken?


    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes it can be taken. Dose – initially for a month, just 2 – 5 drops in morning with honey or water.

  9. Shobha K Rao says:

    My husband (47Yrs) and my self (45Yrs) are reasonably healthy persons. From Udupi Pejavara mutt goshala we got gomuthra arka. We were advised to take it as a general tonic to maintain overall health. Since one year we are consuming it with honey. Shall we continue this or stop it? Please advise.
    Thank u.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If you do not have any side effects like excessive tiredness, fatigue, burning sensation, etc, You can surely continue it. During long term intake of cow urine, I would suggest to avoid it just during hot summer period.

  10. jayshankar says:

    I was recently diognised with Vitiligo, as a part of my treatment, I have been adviced to take 5ml of Gomutra arca with 15 ml of water first thing in the morning. Please let me know if this is works, based on your experience.
    Thank you.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Yes it works in some people. Please also follow other medicines that the doctor has advised. Start the dose of Gomutra from 1 ml and gradually increase it to 5 ml in about 10 days.

  11. P.Vijaykumar Reddy says:

    I am staying in uganda,East Africa.sarrounding plenty of cows are moving freely. we have a chance to collect the gomutra. my doubt is Only Indian Gomutra is good for health or all over the world the gomutra is good for health.

    Please clarify and advice me.

    Thank you

      Gomutra from healthy cow, naturally fed from whichever part of the world is good. There is no special categorization like Indian cow urine etc.

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          I am assuming that you are following cow urine therapy only under medical supervision. (highly recommended).
          It is hot. But for a 40 year old lady, it might not affect normal period cycle, if taken for a limited amount of time – of about2 – 3 months.

  13. Is there any difference in the medicinal properties of cow/buffalo(male/female) urine?

  14. Thank you sir, for the clarification.

    • bijumon says:

      sir, my wife suffering from late menestral cycle from 2 to 5 months, we have no children till after 7 years marital life, while consuming treatment period is ok, if it is stoped the condition is same. If Gaumutra treatment helps to survive this situation of late period.

      • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

        You need to consult an ayurvedic doctor, rather than simply betting on Cow urine therapy. There are many factors to be considered. Such as –
        For wife – Examination and scanning to check if she has PCOS, Hormonal assay to know FSH levels, rule out any thyroid problems etc.
        For husband – To do semen analysis and to rule out smoking habit etc.

  15. ahmed abdulmalik says:

    thanks for your kindness,my dad was diagnous of liver cancer.his eyes are yello,waist pain,and fatigue.can he take cow urine?if no,what do you advice?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Since there seems to be liver pathology, you will need to consult an Ayurvedic doctor, before your dad can take cow urine. The blood, scanning report etc will have to be looked into in detail.

  16. Asheesh kumar says:

    dear sir,
    i have a doubt regarding this article.
    i am taking it daily for last two years for maintaining a good health. U mentioned that a man suffering from infertility should avoid cow urine. But if a healthy man is taking it, will it have a negative effect on his sexual performance or sexual fertility

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Like I said, cow urine therapy can be taken for a period of 2 – 3 months by a healthy person. Over that, it is not good to continue it. It might not affect sexual performance, if it is taken for not more than 2 – 3 months only.

  17. rajesh says:

    i am having problem during sperms come out in less than five minutes,i want to continue for 1/2 hour,kindly sugeest,i am taking godhan ark for nearly 20 days, i am having two daughters want one male child kindly suggest what to do?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      There is no technique that would guarantee a male child. My personal advice is, considering this competitive age and changing times, it is foolish to think that only a male child can do good. But that is just my opinion. But sorry, I am of no use to you, I guess.

  18. If you distill cow urine, you will get only water right??
    I did not understand that part.
    I also am not familiar how arka is manufactured. I thought distillates will have only water and no active ingredients(since it is water that mainly evaporates and condenses)

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Along with water, whichever the cow urine components that evaporate below 100 degree Celsius will be there in the distillate.

  19. Sukhdev says:

    Dear Sir,
    I take cow urine daily in the morning on empty stomach. i want to know: 1. which cow’s urine is more best red, black or white? 2. can i take raw urine after 2-3 hours? 3. any book is available about cow urine? 4. what effect on man’s fertility and motility? 5. i have psoriasis, how much time i continue to take cow’s urine?

    Thanx n regards.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      I do not think there is any difference related with the colour of cow.
      If it is fresh cow urine, better to take it within 5 minutes after collection. If it is left for 2 – 3 hours, it may develop microbes.
      If cow urine therapy is continued beyond 4 -5 months continuously, it might affect semen quality. Hence it is always good to follow cow urine therapy only under medical supervision, for a specific time period only.
      I have not read any book especially written on Cow urine therapy, yet. So, I am not in a position to recommend.

  20. Raghavendran says:

    Dear Sir,
    I have extra fat muscles all over my stomach. That is people call funnily as tyre. Does gomutra help in supressing this tyre. How long should i take gomutra?

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      You can consult your Ayurvedic doctor to know more about the fat muscles, that you are referring to.
      Cow urine, in general can be taken for a period of 2 months, under medical supervision.

  21. Sidhesh says:

    I am 26 years old and not married yet. I take cow urine (distilled one) daily early in the morning 20ml mixing with equal amount of water.
    I just want to know how long i can continue it and what are its benefits and side-effects if taken daily for a life long time?
    If i am continuing it for a long time what quantity i should take???

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      I suggest you to take it for not more than 3 – 4 months. Avoid it especially in summers.
      I do not think, it can be taken continuously for more than a few months time, whatever might be the dose.

      The disadvantages for long term use: It is cleansing in nature. Hence it may hamper the overall nourishment levels of the body.

  22. A SHARMA says:

    I am suffering from psoriasis all over my body from last 7 year. I intake cow urine from 1 year it work wonder but not cured completely. I want to know that cow urine cure psoriasis completely and how much time needed. I intake cow urine early in the morning empty stomach. Is there any remedy that should be taken alongwith cow urine to cure psoriasis.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Cow urine does help to some extent in psoriasis. But it alone, might not be the solution. You will need to consult an Ayurvedic doctor directly.

  23. hello sir my mother is suffering from throat it beneficial to give her cow urine therapy…if yes what about dosage…

  24. Rajesh says:

    Hello Sir,
    My brother is having Peripheral Artery Disease. (Total blockage near right femoral artery). Under medical supervision he is taking cow urine (since 19 days). The Suggested cow urine quantity is 150 ml every morning. Looking at your previous discussions / answer to queries, this dosage seems too high. I would like to know your views on this.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      The dose entirely depends on doctor’s advice and patients tolerance capacity. Your doctor might be right in fixing the dose, specific to your brother. But it is not the regular dose or general dose to follow.
      I recommend anyone who wishes to take cow urine to consult his doctor first and follow doctor’s advice.

      • Hi,

        I am 26/f married and suffering from liver cirhossis from last 2 years! I was into coma and serious health issues due to it.

        I have been told to take cow urine every day but I really want to know how does it work on me?? On my liver? I am very regular with it and I feel great no doubt about it and my skin is totally recovered from all the rashes n scars caused by liver cirhossis.

        Plz clear my doubts sir, thanks

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Dear Mr Tanu, Cow urine is good for liver, I agree. But since your conditions is a bit serious, I would suggest you to kindly consult an Ayurvedic doctor and take Cow urine or any such medicines under strict medical supervision. Any self medication may prove to be very dangerous. Take Care!

          • Thank you for the reply sir. Therefore I would also like to know if cow urine helps in curing thyroid?

            • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

              See, curing thyroid is a very broad word. I would say that it would help to some extent in thyroid cyst, Multi Nodular Goiter etc conditions. But it may not be so useful as a standalone remedy.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      I presume, you are taking this treatment with advice from a qualified Ayurvedic doctor. If so, please continue, if not, please consult one.
      Speaking generally, yes, cow urine helps to lose weight, if you are doing diet control, healthy food choices and exercise.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      I can not guarantee that cow urine would help in improving eye sight, in your son’s case. Please take him to an Ayurvedic doctor. There are medicines and techniques that may help. My best wishes to your son.

    • Gomutra based eye drops can be used for improving eyesight. Ghee made from Indian breed cows is also very helpful. There are nasal drops available which helps in improving eye sight and brain functioning also.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, cow urine does help post cancer, to reduce the chances of further recurrence. But if the patient undergoes radiation therapy etc, and if he is very weak, then chances are there that he will be further weakened with cow urine.
      Fresh cow urine is good, provided the cow is very healthy and if it is not stored for more than 1 – 2 hours.
      Ginger with honey is good for soar throat.

  32. Hello Dr. ,

    it is only recently that I have found out about gomutra. I have been recommended to use this by my Ayurveda physician as a component in weight loss, I was a little hesitant to go ahead with it when I realized it was cow urine, which makes me a little uneasy. so please let me know:
    1. Isn’t cow urine waste, hence toxic?
    2. Does it work with everyone or is it dependent on metabolism, genes etc?
    3. Is there an alternative to gomutra that can give the same effect?

    Thank you for your time.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, if you are very hesitant, then there is no pointing in consuming Gomutra by force. The alternative to it is – Go Arka, a distillate of Gomutra.
      Cow urine contains many Kshara properties (alkaline) hence it is used in Ayurveda for treating many medical conditions.
      It works with everyone. But with some people with pitta body type do not tolerate the hotness of it.
      There are many other alternatives but it needs a doctor’s consultation. A general statement can not be made on this issue.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, it is not ideal to start cow urine therapy in summer. Please wait for rainy season to begin.
      Please start with 5 drops a day and go ahead with your doctor’s advice. Two spoons a day is huge dose for a start.

    Can one consume distilled gomutra if he is suffering from uric acid pains??

  37. Sir,
    I have started taking cow urine distillate (2 spoons) for 6 days. I keep the unsealed distillate bottle in the room and not in the fridge.Should I keep it in the fridge to avoid bacterial infection?
    2 days ago I noticed lots of small Boils on my hands – arms and forearms. The very next day I also got a sty on my eye. Could these be related to the distillate being infected post opening? I have stopped the urine intake since yesterday.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, it is a good idea to refrigerate it. Generally, a distillate should not get infected.
      Please see a doctor directly immediately and go with his advice on cow urine intake.
      Drink a cup or two milk per day, if you have burning sensation.

    I am a 32-yr old married male. I am overweight(Height:165 cm, Weight: 85 Kg). I have been taking Godhan Ark (Divya Pharmacy, Ramdev Baba) since the last 3 weeks every morning on an empty stomach with warm water. My purpose is to reduce weight through the Cow Urine therapy, diet control and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. But after reading your thread, I am a little concerned about Gomutra use in summer(it is really hot in this part of India). I have a healthy marital life and planning for a child soon. Although there has not been any miraculous change, but I would take your advise whether to continue or not. Please suggest.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

  57. Dear Dr.


    After reading above comments & Opinions we came to know many things about cow urine usage…

    In our Village Mandya we are having Krishna valley white cows which are used for plough & cart purpose , they were very healthy..

    My mother having varicose pain with little diabetic & BP she consumes lot of allopathic medications which really feels & pains me when i see her taking many tablets a day..!

    Some one suggested me to use cow urine therapy as we have our own Nati cows.. so im thinking is it right to give her raw cow urine mixed with water..?

    we may not be comfortable with distilled process at home or to bye at shop as we plenty cow urine available to us.. i would like to below below which option is best..

    Option 1:

    without boiling or distillation can’t we drink fine cloth filtered raw cow urine by mixing sufficient quantity of water.. is it have any harmful effect..?

    Option 2:

    We can just boil cow urine in earthen pot or stainless steel container & filtered it using fine cloth & stored in airtight glass bottle, can this used for long time like 2 – 3 months

    kindly suggest..

    Warm regards,

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, if the cows are perfectly healthy, you can use freshly collected cow urine for medicinal purposes. In this case, you can follow option 1.
      Or if you are not sure about the health of cows, you can follow option 2.

  60. the article is very informative but just a small query that does the urine smell and taste bad. someone told me that the smell is very strong and intolerable. all those who have already consumed it can help me. Thanks- Vandana

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, the urine distillate or Godhan ark usually has very less odor and taste is also tolerable. For beginners, raw cow urine is bit bad to smell and taste in initial couple of weeks.

      • Dear Doctor,

        If I am taking Godhan Ark which is distilled, still do I need to add water in it if I am taking 2-3 spoons daily?

        Does it help cleansing toxins in intestine and liver to work properly?

        Thank you very much.

        – Avadhut

        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Just to lower its hotness, it is advised to add water even to Godhan ark.
          It helps to cleanse toxins in liver and intestine.

  61. kamlesh says:

  74. MM (BABLU) says:

    Hello sir, I am 40 yrs. Old. I have gone through surgery of piles a year before. I was still having hard stool issue which couldn’t be cured even with the help of abhyarisht and other allopathic medicines. I am also on allopathic medicines for high Bp. My prostate was enlarged a little 2 months back and cystitis was diagnosed in MRI. Both the issues have been cured till an extent and PSA is within the range now. There is post void scan shows 28 ml of residual urine in USG report now and Dr. Prescribed no medicine for this.

    I have just started taking distilled cow urine from last one month. I started with 5 ml in a glass of water empty stomach in the morning for one week and then 10 ml. I now feel much better in my constipation and hard stool problem. Will it help to cure some or all of my other problems as stated above. Sometimes I feel weakness and a little stomach ache which I believe not because of this urine therapy.

    Please advise.


    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      It helps in BP, prostate problem and constipation. I would recommend to stick to a dose below 10 ml, if you are intending to use it for long term.

        Thank you so much for your kind response. Is there anything that I should avoid in my diet which may effect positive impacts of urine therapy?

          Avoid foods that contribute to Benign Prostate Hypertrophy –
          Avoid –
          Cheese, orange juice, Banana, pine apple, white corn, zucchini, salted fish, coffee, tea.
          A low fat diet is ideal to avoid further worsening of BPH. Please avoid fried food, heavy non veg.

  75. MM (BABLU) says:

    Hello sir,

    I forgot to mention that my weight is 60 kg and height is 5’8″ as per which the ideal weight should be 65-70kg. I guess consuming 5ml distilled cow urine daily will not make me losing more weight as I read here that it helps in losing weight.

    Please advise.

    Thanks once again.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      If you are planning to consuming 5 ml cow urine just for 4 – 6 weeks, then it would not cause any weight loss. Beyond that time, it may.

      • Hello Sir,

        Following to my previous conversation, may I know if dropping few drops of desi cow ghee through anas might help to prevent of reoccurring of piles in future.


        • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

          Helps in relieving itching and eases bowels but a cure or prevention of piles cannot be guaranteed.

      GoArk can be taken allong with allopathic medicines.
      Non veg can be eaten while taking Go Ark.
      Just keep in mind that Goark produces internal heat. Hence, avoid very spicy food (veg / non veg).
      Consume a lot of cucumber slices and consult your doctor for the right dose, especially because you have diabetes.

    Respected Sir,

    I’m 25 years and suffering from bad chronic constipation. I have tried many churans (Kayam Churan, Zhandu Churan, etc.), but these didn’t helped me, rather I felt uncomfortable throughout the day. I usually sleep for 5-6 hrs daily.

    Constipation is heridetary in my family. Is there any permanent cure to this ?

    During Nov-May is the best time of the year, since Bael fruit is available. Bael sharbat is very helpful for my constipation.

    For June-Oct, could you please suggest anything???

    Will Gau Mutra be helpful for constipation???

    Sir, In the very beginning of the article you have shown a picture of holstein. Its very misleading. Only humped cow urine has medicinal properties. holstein is an animal from another species BOS TAURUS and has totally different properties than our desi cow. I wonder how you couldnt find an appropriate picture of an Indian cow which belongs to BOS INDICUS. Please change the pic, or else people might end up drinking wrong cow urine.

    • Dr J V Hebbar MD(Ayu) says:

      Hi, for Indians, Indian cow urine is good and for westerners, their breed’s cow urine is good. It is not true that only a particular breed of cow urine has medicinal properties and others do not.
