  1. Sir, is this product useful for muscle development? I bought this product by reading in ayurvedic tips for muscle development in Internet. But not used yet. Please give your suggestion.

    • Hi Naren, it can be very dangerous to just rely on online information on product decision. Please consult an Ayurveda doctor for right advice. It is not useful in muscle development.

    • But keep in mind, Swarna bhasma is not used as specific medicine to treat diabetes. It is only used as supportive medicine, in combination with other specific anti diabetic Ayurvedic medicine.
      It helps to improve immunity, and reduce chances of infection, in diabetic patients.
      It rejuvenates tissues of pancreas and kidney, it has anti aging benefits.
