Amritarishta, also known as Amrutharishtam or Amritarishtam, is a polyherbal Ayurvedic liquid formula advised as a choice of remedy in different types of fevers. It is used as an antioxidant providing aid in the treatment of fever, cough, and cold. The main ingredient of Amritarishta is Tinospora Cordifolia, ‘Guguchi or Giloy’, which adds antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties to the medicine, helpful in treating various illnesses. It also contains Dashmool, a mix of 10 herbs, adding multiple properties to the overall mix.
According to Ayurveda, Amritarishta is known to have Javarghana (antipyretic) property which helps in reducing fever. Apart from that, its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestive) properties also indirectly help in controlling fever by digesting Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion). These digestive properties also help to manage the loss of appetite, thirst, bloating, and flatulence. Amritarishta also has Rasayana (rejuvenating) property which helps to increase immunity and promote longevity.
Amritarishta is available in liquid/syrup form. You can take 15-20ml Amritarishta or as directed by the physician to get relief from fever. Mix it with equal amounts of lukewarm water to dilute its taste a little. Take it once or twice a day, preferably after meals.
Amritarishta is generally well tolerated and does not have any side effects when taken in the recommended dose. However, it is advisable to consult the doctor before using Amritarishta.
