  1. You must start Suvarna Prashan Sanskar. Available at Dr. Kiran’s Clinic, Ayuveda Consultant in Vasai, Dindayal Nagar, Opp Bhaji Market, Vasai West.

  2. Sir, when Chyawanprash can be taken for the lifetime on daily basis, then why can’t swamala be taken when it contains mostly the Chyawanprash only in it?

  3. Because you are slightly over-weight, taking this would further increase it. Hence, I would suggest to try Bhringaraja capsule -1 capsule once or twice a day, for a period of 2 months time.
    There will always be confusion, if you hear non-doctor giving health advice.

  4. I just noticed Swamala has Sodium Benzoate as preservative. Looks like this is dangerous. Can anyone comment on whether it is still safe to use Swamala?

  5. Dr. I am feeling too much tired for about 5 years.
    Two Doctors told that I have cronic fatigue and a slight autoimune disorder. Is it ok to take the Swamala? Is it fine to take this product for 1 or 2 months just for a burst and then stop?

  6. Hi – Three days ago I refered to an Ayurvedic doctor for hair loss treatment and he prescribed me SWAMALA. Does it really cure the hair loss? Please guide me in regard.

    • it will supplement your body with the nutritions and let the hairs grow healthy and strong. it is good if it accompanies any hair oil for application like neelibringadi, bringamalaka or malathyadi taila.

  7. How to use it daily for weight gain , remove tired ness?? Shall i take One tea spoon twice day on empty stomach??? Should I mix this compound in water or milk or any other liquid or take as it is.please. help me.

  8. Hello! I am 23 and my weight is around 36 KGS. I am too skinny and hence one of my friend recommended Me to try this out.
    For.how long should I take this?? And are there any side effects? Pls let me know. Thanks in advance.

  9. डाक्टर साहब , नमस्कार , मुझे ठंडी हवा से शरीर गिरने लग जाता है गर्म तासीर की चीज़ें गर्मी कर देती हैं। आमला कच्चा खाता हूँ। मोशन 3 4 बार जाता हूँ, स्वामला लेने पर कुछ कांस्टीपेटेड फील हुआ। क्या स्वामला कब्ज एसिडिटी या गर्मी तो नही करता। मैं सर्दियों में गर्म चाय भी नही पि पाता क्यों की ठंडी हवा खराब करती है।
