ARISHTAMS FOR WINTER

by Kottakkal Support December 14, 2019

Arishtams for Winter

Arishtams are herbal formulas fermented with jaggery, sugar, or honey. The fermentation generates 5 – 10% alcohol, which acts as a medium for extracting deeper qualities from the herbs. They are a perfect choice for winter as they warm digestion and provide many healing benefits.       

  • Pleasant tasting due to sugar content
  • Improves digestion
  • Aids elimination of ama (toxins)
  • Increases the absorption of nutrients
