Vasarishtam, also known as Vasarishta, is an Ayurvedic medicinal preparation. It is a fermented liquid preparation commonly used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, which originated in ancient India.

The primary ingredient of Vasarishtam is the Vasaka plant (Malabar nut)., which is a well-known medicinal plant in Ayurveda. Vasaka is used for its bronchodilator and expectorant properties and is often prescribed for respiratory conditions like bronchitis, asthma, and cough.

Vasarishtam is prepared by fermenting the decoction of Vasaka along with other ingredients like jaggery, water, and certain spices. The fermentation process is believed to enhance the therapeutic properties of the herbs and make them more bioavailable.

It is primarily used to treat respiratory disorders, especially those involving excessive mucus production, cough, and breathing difficulties. However, it’s crucial to note that the use of Vasarishtam should be done under the guidance of a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner, as dosage and duration of use can vary depending on the individual’s constitution and specific health condition.
