These herbs and foods increase both the quality and quantity of the Dhatus. 1. Nourishing Rasa Example: Shatavari, dates, milk and ghee
  12. 12. How Rasayana works? These herbs work at both Agni levels. They perform functions such as Deepana, Pachana and Chaya Apachaya (Digestion, absorption and separation of nutrients and wastes), thereby increasing the quality of the Dhatus. 2. Increasing Agni Example: Pippali, Vidanga, Ginger

Cleansing the Channels Example: Guggulu, Garlic, Pippali
