The most widely used Ayurvedic herbal product is the liquid kashyam. It is an herbal decoction made with water. The herbs are water-soluble, and the active ingredients are extracted into the boiling water. This method of herbal preparation is easily absorbed by the digestive system which allows for faster results.
Researchers at Arya Vaidya Sala conducted extensive testing and compared the advantages and disadvantages between a liquid versus a tablet herbal decoction. One of the herbal products tested was Mahatiktakam and researchers found the tablet is more effective and easier to take. Below are test results showing the advantages of tablets over liquid herbal decoction.
Physiochemical Parameters of Mahatiktakam Kashyam
The table reveals that (1) It is acidic in nature with ph value ranging from 4 to 5 (2) Also to increase shelf life, sodium benzoate and parabens are added.
Arya Vaidya Sala conducted extensive research on the best method to convert liquid kashyam into a solid tablet. The physicochemical parameters of the tablet were found as:
The herbal tablet has the same potency as the herbal liquid. Arya Vaidya Sala introduced the new herbal tablets as Kwathams, a tablet devoid of acidic nature and additives that increase shelf life.
For these reasons, we recommend our valued customers choose the kwatham tablets over the kashayam liquids. Kwathams have the same potency as kashayams and offer several advantages.
Kwatham tablets are easy to take wherever you go and are easy to take with a little water. They allow for greater freedom over the kashayams. The convenience of taking a tablet as well as avoiding the bitter taste makes it easier to take kwathams regularly as prescribed.
Another important advantage of kwathams is how they are processed. Great care is taken to slowly heat kwathams for a longer time than kashayams. This results not only in a higher concentration but solidifies the decoction into tablets.
What is a comparable dosage?
One kwatham tablet is equal to 5 ml (1 tsp) of kashayam. The average dose is two tablets two times per day on an empty stomach. Kwatham tablets should be taken with lukewarm water to help swallow and dissolve them. The efficacy and dosage of kwathams are the same as kashayams, and it’s quite easy to adjust from kashayams to kwathams. We offer twenty-six kwathams compared to fourteen kashayams.
