what is the difference between aswagandhadi lehyam and ajaswagandhi lehyam ?
Ajaswagandhadi lehyam contains non veg ingredients in it – Read about it here – http://easyayurveda.com/2009/11/10/ajaswagandhadi-leham/
Ashwagandhadi lehyam is the veg version of it.
Both are quite similar in action. But, because of the non veg ingredients, Ajaswagandhadi does a better job in improving muscle strength.
Having said that, some companies name Ajaswagandhadi lehyam as Ashwagandhadi lehyam, which is bit confusing. Always check the label for non veg ingredients, with this product.
can u plzz let me know if there is any seller of this product in jaipur thakyou
