Ayurveda uses the gifts of nature, and makes them super supplements. Here’s what they can do for our health.

Allopathic medicines have become an unavoidable part of life of almost all of us – from babies to the aged. In fact, one notices almost an overdependence on allopathic medicines. This is not good news, as most medications come with side-effects. It is, therefore, wise to explore other options for health and healing. Look towards nature; it offers a wealth of herbs and spices for this purpose.

The ancient science of Ayurveda has always propagated the natural approach, and now that the world is coming back to its roots, we help you decode the 10 most popular ayurvedic supplements.


  1. Ashwagandha – This herb holds a prominent place in ayurveda. Also known as Indian ginseng, ashwagandha promotes the vitality of the body and the mind. If you are experiencing a low sex drive, or are suffering from mental sluggishness, ashwagandha can help. This herb also helps to reduce stress and induce sleep. It is recommended that you speak to an ayurvedic doctor before consuming ashwagandha leaves, as the plant has multiple properties that can affect both weight gain and weight loss. You should make sure you are consuming the right element of the plant for your specific needs.

2. Brahmi Brahmi is also known as the ‘brain tonic’. It helps to rejuvenate the brain cells, as well as the nervous system. If you have a hair growth problem, crush some brahmi leaves and apply it on your scalp for better hair.

3. Peppercorn – Black pepper is one of the most favoured ingredients in kitchens all over the world. Apart from enhancing taste, it also adds to the nutrient content of the food. Peppercorn is also good for your throat and your gut.

4. Triphala – A combination of 3 herbs – amla, bibhitaki, and haritaki triphala helps in detoxification and weight loss. You may add triphala to your medicine cabinet for added benefits.

5. Cardamom – Cardamom (elaichi) is commonly found in the Indian kitchen. We often use cardamom to make tea, which benefits us by reducing the harmful effects of caffeine. By the way, a little cardamom a day keeps cholesterol away!


6. Ajwain – Elderly people often insist on eating ajwain (carom seeds) after their food, and with good reason – ajwain is a digestion-aiding and nerve-stimulating herb. This spice is also known to heal painful joints.


7. Cumin – I first got to know of the importance of cumin (jeera) when I had a baby. I was advised to eat cumin for proper lactation. That apart, cumin has antiviral properties too. It also helps in controlling asthma and bronchitis.

8. NeemNeem is a wonder herb! It is famous for its antibacterial and detoxifying properties. One can drink neem juice to purify the blood, and get rid of stomach worms. Neem is also used to cure diseases of the skin and gums.

9. Turmeric – Turmeric (haldi) is an essential kitchen spice. Haldi is an ingredient in most Indian recipes, and has amazing benefits – it is good for our brain, and helps control inflammation. Turmeric is also known to inhibit the growth of cancerous cells.


10. Tulsi – A gentle herb with great healing capabilities, tulsi (basil) is worshiped by Indians, and is grown in most Indian households. Tulsi concoctions have always been used to fight common colds and sore throats. This herb helps build immunity as well.

One must remember that herbs and spices are ideally used in combinations for specific treatments. Always consult an ayurvedic doctor or expert for the same.

Anjali Nayyar

Anjali Nayyar

Reiki, Theta, and Aura Healer
An MA in Sociology of Health Care from Warwick University, UK, Anjali was interested in reiki healing since a long time. Even her final dissertation was on the acceptance of reiki as a complementary therapy for cure. Coming from a household of doctors and having a spiritual bent of mind (she now understands that the material and the spiritual are just two ends of the same continuum), she tried her hand at reiki, theta, and aura healing, and was smitten! Currently, Anjali is into a modality called Serenity Surrender, which emphasises healing of the self (soul).
