Ayurvedic Drink for Body Rejuvenation and Better Sleep
This warm Ayurvedic drink for body rejuvenation and better sleep is a part of evening Rasayana. Rejuvenation, or Rasayana in Sanskrit, is something that Ayurveda is famous for. It means “practical reversal of the aging process.” Rasayana is one of the eight specialized branches of the practice of Ayurveda. It deals with the maintenance of health. Rasa, meaning juice or fluid, is the vital fluid that we extract from the food we eat. It brings nourishment, it carries off toxins, it enhances our immunity. Rasa looks a lot like what modern physiology calls lymph and plasma.
