Abstract

Balance state of body elements are known as health according to Ayurveda. That can be possible because of proper nutrition only. According to Ayurveda, ingestions which balance Dosha, Dhatu and Mala are able to nourish body appropriately. According to Acharya Charaka, Sneha is one factor to digest food property and Ghrita is considered as a best Sneha Dravya amongst all. As per chemical analysis, Ghrita contains many micro nutrient elements viz. copper, Iron, vitamins and minerals etc. Ghrita increases Oja - a purest Dhatu of our body, due to that normal body functions can take place. As a counterpart, traditionally made desi cow ghee will not increase bad cholesterol. Many preparations from Ghrita can be made for easy palatable intake viz. traditional sweets, granule forms, biscuits etc. Hence, Ghrita would be helpful as daily micro-nutrient supplement.
