Swati Wavhale* and Dnyaneshwar Bhise

Abstract

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian science and it has eight branches among which one of the most important branch is Rasayana Tantra. Rasayana means the path that rasa takes. It is also considered as the science of nutrition leading to provide the best quality of body tissues in form of longevity, immunity, resistance against disease and improved mental health. Rasayana contains herbo- mineral combination which is helpful for maintaining the balance between body and mind. It improves the qualities of Rasa Dhatu which influence the health of other Dhatus in the body so it can be considered that any medicine that improves the quality of Rasa is called as Rasayana. In Ayurveda different types of Rasayana like kutipraveshik Rasayana and Vatatpic Rasayana are explained. In vatatpic Rasayana ayurvedic formulations are used for prevention of ageing, Re- establishment of youth, strengthening of life, brain, mind and prevention of diseases. In Ayurveda some metallic mineral formulations including visha dravya are combined to form Rasakalpa which acts as Rasayana (Rejuvenating Agents) so it is very important to know about poisonous drugs whether they have been used in proper form and prescribed dose and after that they act as potent therapeutic agents. Although Visha formulation are indicated for various diseases, but some formulations are also used for Rasayana purpose in order to strengthen the body cells. Due to its special Vyavayi, Vikashi properties it gives fast action and regenerate the body. Navjivan Ras is one such formulation which contains kuchala as a vishdravya along with Rasasindoor, Abhraka Bhasma, Loha Bhasma, Trikatu etc. Kuchala is a nervine tonic, aphrodisiac and mainly acts on motor neuron system. Rasasindoor and Abhrak Bhasma are the best Rasayana, saptadhatu vardhak and have Balya properties. Whereas Loha Bhasma is the best rejuvening agent to Rakta Dhatu. It also act on medodhatu and so used to reduce obesity. Present paper will elaborate the importance of Navjivan Rasa with reference to its contents.
