Swarna Bhasma is a metal-based Ayurvedic preparation. It is used to treat various disorders and enhance immunity. Its existence and use in treating ailments can be seen in Indian, Arabic, and Chinese literature. It is considered one of the most expensive medicines in Ayurveda because it contains up to 98% gold particles. The presence of gold in earlier times was observed to provide numerous therapeutic values like rejuvenator, aphrodisiac, and increase the longevity of life, etc.
Laden with extensive ayurvedic properties, Swarna Bhasma increases physical power and enlightens not only our mind but also our physical body.
It is prepared through a process called Putapaka. In this, the gold is heated and quenched with various plant extracts.
• Immunity booster
Swarna Bhasma is available in fine powder or tablet form.
You can take 15-30mg Swarna Bhasma per day with honey or ghee, preferably after meals.
☆ It is always better and safe to consult your doctor first before taking any metal preparation as doctor can only decide as per the condition of the patient.
• Heart Diseases
Swarna bhasma is extremely effective in treating various heart anomalies due to its strong antioxidative nature. It not only strengthens the heart muscles and detoxifies the blood but also prevents the deposition of plaque in the blood vessels and cleanses the coronary arteries.
It also averts the formation of atherosclerosis (i.e., hardening of the arteries), and hence reduces the risk of heart attacks, heart blocks, blood clots, mitral regurgitation, ischemic cardiomyopathy.
• Mind Relaxant
The abundance of adaptogenic, anti-anxiety and sedative properties in this Swarna Bhasma not only improves the mood but also relieves symptoms of stress like anxiousness, lack of attention, ignorance, and irritability. It holds high significance in providing mental stability by regulating the stress hormone, i.e., serotonin which in turn reduces restlessness, uneasiness, cold hands, and feet, etc. and bestows a fresh and happy feeling.
• Respiratory Diseases
It is pivotal in treating the common cold, sore throat, cough and flu symptoms. When taken alongside Tankan Bhasma, Praval Pishti, and Giloy Satva, Swarna Bhasma actively thins and loosens sputum particles within the lungs, chest and nasal cavities and eases breathing. It is also highly beneficial for providing faster relief from non-productive cough, asthma and other bronchial conditions.
• Boosts Immunity
Swarna Bhasma offers an absolute remedy for enhancing the immune system, fighting microbes and shielding the body against various infections.
• Brain Health
Being a nervine tonic, it is also extremely useful in rectifying memory flaws in middle aged individuals and diminishing inflammation in the brain while also supporting and improving brain health.
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
Swarna Bhasma helps to reduce excess Ama as it has Deepan (appetizer) property. This helps provide relief from the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis-like joint pain and swelling.
Swarna Bhasma has aphrodisiac properties which help to improve stamina, strength, low sperm count, and improve quality and quantity of semen. It also helps to clear the yellowness in semen, treat erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and infertility in men.
