  1. hello sir,
    you mentioned side effect of this churna, is there any reference of this or you described by
    your own experiences.

  2. hi, ashwagandha is having rasayana property. it is helpful to increase fertility and also body mass. But it is ashwagandhadi churna what we have introduced here which contain other ingredients also which acts on tridoshas. So before anything it is better to consult your nearest Ayurvedic doctor and take suggestion.

  3. In some youtube videos they say that Ashwagadha powder increase height if it is mixed with milk, they say it has a direct effect on the pituitary gland to secrete the growth hormone, is it true ??

  4. Would this product be useful if taken for muscle-building/recovery while following a weight training program. Also if all 3 dosha are already balanced, should we consume this with ghee & honey both?

  5. sir i am 19 yrs old female. i started taking churna about 1 month back. i was doing exercises to increse height as well. but somehow there is some delay in my period about a week. so i wanted to ask whether ashwagandh has some role in my period delay?

  6. Hello Dr. My daughter is 2.5 yrs old. Since she got operated for diaphragmatic hernia she hasn’t gained weight. She gets ill often. She is 10 kg now.

Is that coz of this medicine ?
