In Ayurveda, ghee is considered an important carrier for the therapeutic properties of herbs as it helps in enhancing their absorption and efficacy. Chagaladya Ghrita is specifically formulated for its potential benefits in treating a variety of conditions related to the eyes and vision.
Here are some key aspects of Chagaladya Ghrita:
