As the temperature goes down, people can have all sorts of issues such as cold, cough, flu etc. These are caused due to a weak immune system. This is a result of aggravated Vata and Kapha doshas in the body.
In this post, we will talk about the age-old Ayurvedic immunity booster called Amrit Kalash and its scientifically proven benefits for enhancing the body’s defenses against toxic viruses and bacteria. Also, we would like to explain the reasons that make Amrit Kalash the best Ayurvedic immunity booster for your family’s health.
But, first, let us try to understand the Ayurveda’s perspective about Immunity.
What does Ayurveda say about Immunity?
Ayurveda, an ancient science of life, has always talked about the diminished response and diseased state of the body when “Bala” (Immunity) is compromised.
According to Ayurveda, the physiology of a person is divided into three doshas i.e Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It is said that all three doshas should be in balance to create a thriving environment in the body for a healthy and blissful state of mind and physical being.
It is suggested to follow various rules and regimens( Charya) according to individual Prakriti so that the body and mind function in an optimized manner. This way the body can be protected from the changing seasonal conditions without interfering with the body’s state of homeostasis.
Ayurveda describes Immunity into three basic parts:
Sahajabala - natural immunity (genetic and inborn resistance)
Kalajabala - seasonal or age-related
Yuktikrutabala -modulated by diet, exercise, regimen and immunomodulators (Rasayanas)
As we all know, our immunity is affected by changes in the seasons and most of us face the symptoms of seasonal flu, cold, fever etc. So, Ayurveda emphasizes following Dinacharya (Daily regimen) and Ritucharya (Seasonal regimen) to maintain a healthy state of the body. Dincharya involves maintaining a healthy lifestyle, eating habits, physical activities, sound sleep etc.
This process also involves the use of Rasayanas (Immunomodulators) and other cleansing rituals to maintain a healthy and balanced state of being.
What is Rasayana Therapy in Ayurveda?
In Sanskrit, “Rasayana” means- ‘ Yat Jara Vyadhi Nashanam Tat Rasaynam’ – ‘that which negates ageing and disease’.
‘Rasayana = Rasa’ [ Rasa dhatu – essence of Nutrition] + Arana [ Circulation & promotion].
According to Ayurveda, Rasayanas are the nutrients that work on the micro and macro cellular level of the body. These have multiple functions such as - boosting the Ojas (Vital force of life), improving immunity, replenishing the body fluids, anti-ageing benefits, maintaining levels of Rasa Dhatu and body tissues.
Rasayana when taken properly and regularly makes a person Arogya (Disease free). This often means not falling I'll or falling less ill in terms of frequency and intensity. Rasayana fills up the seven tissues with balanced nutrition, hence helping build strength and immunity from within.
Once that happens, Ojas, the prime bio force of the body is formed in optimum quality and quantity and prevents diseases and provides inner Bliss.
Why is Amrit Kalash called “Super Rasayana” and is the best Ayurvedic Immunity Booster to date?
Do you know Amrit Kalash is an ancient formulation that is made from 53 time-tested herbs and ingredients? The formula is in two parts and works synergistically in the body to revitalize and boost immunity from within.
You should consider these facts before making your final choice for the best immunity booster in the market.
Do you know?
Research has shown that a combination of antioxidants works better for immunity than consuming a single antioxidant.
Do you know?
Most of the infections and weakened immunity are caused by “Free Radical” which are some harmful molecules formed in the body due to multiple factors such as pollution, pesticides, physical and mental stress. These molecules are also responsible for aging and other diseases.
And also do you know this fact?
Comprehensive scientific research has shown that Amrit Kalash is the most effective immunity booster to ensure an adequate anti-oxidant supply. This helps fight free radicals in the body.
How was Amrit Kalash created?
In 1980, when the stress of modern lifestyle began to seriously impact the wellbeing of people everywhere, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental meditation program gathered eminent Ayurveda scholars and experts to make this formula. The main contributors to formulate Amrit Kalash were:
Dr. V.K. Dwivedi, world’s leading expert in Rasayan - Health and Longevity promotion chancellor Maharishi Vedic University, Washington DC, USA.
Dr. B.D. Triguna, Ayurveda Martand. Member of Indian Council for Research in Ayurveda, Government of India; President, All India Ayurveda Congress; Chancellor, Maharishi Vedic University, Europe.
Dr. Balaraj Maharishi, Advisor of Ayurveda to the government of Andhra Pradesh, India; the world’s leading expert in Dravyaguna, the identification, and utilization of medicinal plants.
Appropriately, Maharishi finalized the name “Amrit Kalash” for this formulation. Amrit Kalash represents the essence of supreme knowledge derived from the ancient ayurvedic text.
How does Amrit Kalash work for boosting the Immunity of a person?
The efficacy of Amrit Kalash is proven time and again by over 75 scientific researches conducted internationally.
Amrit Kalash helps in boosting immunity and invigorating the innate intelligence of all the organs collectively as compared to other Rasayanas.
And if you ask how does this happen? Then here it is.
MAK improves the responsiveness of white cells (The body’s main type of immune cell) and strengthens T-Cell (responsible for adaptive immune response).Improved responsiveness implies that the immune cell can attack and destroy the bacteria and tumour cells faster and more effectively.
For its effectiveness in taking care of the body’s overall immunity during the tough time of COVID-19, Maharishi Ayurveda bagged the Immunity Booster of the Year Award-2020 at the Immunity Champions of India Awards organized by the HEAL Foundation.
Benefits of Amrit Kalash as compared to other Immunity Boosters:
Most single antioxidants are rather ineffective in fighting most of the infections because they never reach the home of the DNA or the powerhouse of the cells known as mitochondria.
Here are the reasons that make Amrit Kalash a “Super Rasayana”:
It is extensively researched, clinically tested & proven at globally renowned institutions like AIIMS
50 Research Papers Published so far
It promotes Bala that enhances innate immunity

Balances the Vata, Pitta and Kapha doshas
Promotes all three mental abilities: dhi- learning, dhriti-retention and smriti-recall
Works on the root cause of the issue
The benefits of Amrit Kalash can be verified by quantifiable results done by independent researchers in top universities around the world. The formula contains 100% herbal ingredients that are both lipid-soluble and water-soluble, therefore, it is more effective in penetrating the core of the DNA and gives effective results.
Now, there is a very common question that arises: why should one take Amrit Kalash when the whole family has been taking Chyawanprash for many years?

We cannot deny the fact that Immunity plays a vital role in everybody’s life today with the ongoing pandemic and with so many new and resistant bacterias and viruses being introduced into the environment. Also, old viruses are also becoming resistant with every passing life-cycle. The situation may sound gloomy, but our bodies are capable of fighting these microbes when it is healthy and balanced. Even after contracting the virus, our body’s responses can be improved to fight them. This is why Amrit Kalash is the best Ayurvedic immunity booster that can boost the body’s natural response to fight infections caused by bacteria and viruses.
