Rasayanas enhance both the quality and quantity of life, stimulate the mind and enhance vigour. This has made ashwagandha one of Ayurveda’s most prized herbs as a truly superior rejuvenative tonic to the whole body and mind.

The primary constituent in fennel is known as anethole. It is this component that gives fennel its characteristic taste and smell, often likened to that of anise and camphor.

In addition to anethole, fennel contains 12 major phenolic compounds and a high level of flavonoids. Phenolic compounds often display strong free radical scavenging activity. Flavonoids characteristically encourages a healthy inflammation response.
