  1. It’s instructed on the box to be chewed. So do we need to chew it or take with water.? And how many days or months can we take khadiradi at one stretch?

    • Chewing / swallowing can be done. Chewing is recommended if the problems are related to oral cavity and throat.
      It can be taken for a very long time of 3 – 4 months. It is one among the safer Ayurvedic medicines.
