Dashamoola Jeerakarishtam is a traditional Ayurvedic herbal tonic prepared using a combination of two key ingredients: Dashamoola and Jeeraka (cumin seeds). Let me break down the components:
1. Dashamoola: Dashamoola is a Sanskrit term that translates to “ten roots.” It is a combination of the roots of ten medicinal herbs, typically from the following plants:
2. Jeeraka: Jeeraka is the Sanskrit term for cumin seeds (Cuminum cyminum). Cumin seeds are commonly used as a spice in cooking and are known for their aromatic and digestive properties.
**Jeerakarishtam** is an Ayurvedic herbal formulation in the form of an herbal wine or tonic that combines the therapeutic benefits of Dashamoola and Jeeraka. It is believed to have various health benefits, particularly in promoting digestion, reducing inflammation, and supporting overall well-being.
The preparation of Jeerakarishtam involves fermenting the herbs in a mixture of water and jaggery (unrefined sugar), allowing the herbs to release their active constituents into the liquid. This fermented tonic is typically consumed in small doses after meals to aid digestion, alleviate discomfort, and provide nourishment to the body.
As with any herbal remedy, it’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner or Ayurvedic physician before incorporating Jeerakarishtam or any other herbal formulation into your routine, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions or are taking other medications.
It is formulated by the Kerala Ayurveda principle, according to the reference of Sahasrayogam.
