Sir, want to know which brand I can trust. Also, from Baidyanath Stable there are two versions. One is Kumariasava No 1 & the other one is Kumariasava no 3 which contains swarnmakshik bhasm in addition to the standard Kumariasava No 1.Is there any real benefit from Kumariasava No 3. Kumariasava no 1 is manufactured by various manufacturing companies but not Kumariasava No 3.
