Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, categorizes various substances based on their properties and effects on the body. One such classification is the “Jeevaniya Gana” which refers to a group of herbs and substances that are believed to promote vitality, longevity, and overall well-being. These herbs are considered to possess rejuvenating properties.
The term “Jeevaniya” is derived from “Jeevani,” which means to give life or vitality. The herbs classified under Jeevaniya Gana are believed to support the body’s natural processes, enhance immunity, and promote physical and mental strength.
Some commonly recognized Jeevaniya herbs in Ayurveda include:
