  1. Sir,

    Please advise. It is heard that the bHashma is prepared from Metals and in case the oxidation does not take place completely then these bhasma can be toxic for the kidney and other parts of the body.

    I therefore apprehend risk to the health of the person who takes such bhasma.

    Please advise on this.

    • Hi, usually Bhasmas are prepared in a closed environment, after proper purification as per traditional Ayurvedic texts. Hence, they are safe when taken in small, prescribed dose, under medical supervision.

  2. I took Tablet Banshil (2 tabs bd) for 3 weeks. Bangtail contains Tin & Ferrous Sulphate bhasmas. Since then I have developed extreme fatigue, insomnia, gastritis & night sweats. Is there any way to rid my body of these toxins ?

  3. Hello
    I just got this bhasam with chandi bhasam and moti bhasam for my feet pain. It is written on that box. So how can you believe this is real or a mixture of something else.
