Energy, Rejuvenation & More: Narasimha Rasayanam

Energy, Rejuvenation & More: Narasimha Rasayanam

Narasimha Rasayanam Product Highlight

Narasimha Rasayanam is a well-known, classically-formulated Ayurvedic jam with butter, honey and milk as a base. It balances all three of the Doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) and is actually used for a variety of different health complaints. It has been used for increasing physical strength, healthy hair growth and rejuvenation, improved concentration and stronger memory retention. Depending on the participant’s unique constitution and needs, Narasimha Rasayanam can be used to prepare for Panchakarma in an Ayurvedic treatment called Snehakarma. But it is especially helpful in boosting energy levels and relieving chronic fatigue.

If you are experiencing the following problems, please consult an Ayurvedic professional because Narasimha Rasayanam could be a good choice for you:

  • Hair loss
  • Premature gray hair
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Emaciation
  • Loss of libido

There are several common product combinations that Ayurvedic doctors and practitioners will prescribe, especially when a health problem has reached a more severe level or has been around for an extended period of time.

Narasimha Rasayanam is taken orally while Nilibhringadi Coconut Hair Oil is massaged into the scalp and hair to increase hair growth, rejuvenate damaged hair and slow down the graying of hair.

Ashwagandha Arishtam and Narasimha are taken together for people who are emaciated or very underweight and need the support for healthy weight gain.

Spermakot and Narasimha are taken together to support the treatment of male infertility and low libido.

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of Narasimha Rasayanam can be taken orally with water, honey or milk before food once or twice a day. But the exact dosage a patient takes will depend on a number of factors. It is always best to consult an Ayurvedic professional before taking Ayurvedic products, especially since Kottakkal’s formulations are so powerful. 

For Panchakarma preparation and the Snehana procedure, the dose depends on the severity of the health problem and the judgement of the Ayurvedic doctor.

Narasimha can typically be used for a long period of time on a daily basis with no contraindications. There are no known side effects associated with it, though if the dose prescribed is too high for the individual, they could experience indigestion and diarrhea especially. In that case, the dose should be lowered immediately. Because of its ingredients, people with diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease and high blood pressure should be very cautious when using this medicine. It’s best to not try and self-medicate with Narisimha – definitely get the opinion and guidance of a knowledgable Ayurvedic professional.
