My Review - Zandu Pancharishta (An Ayurvedic Digestive Tonic)

Zandu Pancharishta, Review, Zandu, Pancharishta
Stomach related Problems are very common in India and every second person in India faces some kind of stomach problems or disorders. I also come under the second category of people who have a weak digestive system. From childhood, I have been constantly suffering from various stomach related disorders from time to time. My liver is also weak; therefore, from time to time I face many stomach infections. During these years, I tried many digestive tonics, syrups and tablets. However, all products failed to provide complete relief. 

Two years back, I also started facing acute acidity problems. This problem was so acute that acid used to fill in my mouth at night and thus stopping air supply to my brain. Therefore, I decided to look for a good solution so that I can get rid of this problem. First, I stopped eating fried items and foods full of spices. I started taking regularly Amla juice and Aloe Vera syrup. Both these combinations helped me in controlling my problem to some extent. 

 Later, I saw an advertisement of Zandu Pancharishta, an Ayurvedic Digestive Tonic, on TV. This advertisement claimed that by regular intake of Zandu Pancharishta anyone can control most of digestive system problem. 


Zandu, Pancharishta, Old, Bottle
Old Bottle Zandu  Pancharishta
Zandu Pancharishta is one of the oldest brands of digestive tonics available in India. I am seeing its advertisements from my childhood. Moreover, I also heard from many people about its effectiveness in treating stomach related problems. Therefore, I gave it a try and bought my first bottle of Zandu Pancharishta; though, after taking first bottle I was not able to see much effect. 

 I decided to continue Zandu Pancharishta for more time and I regularly took it for next three months. With this regular intake of Zandu Pancharishta, I saw a significant decrease in my all stomach related problems, including acute acidity (Note- I was also taking Amla Juice and Aloe Vera Syrup with it.) 

 Today, almost one year has passed when I first started using Zandu Pancharishta. Now I do not use it regularly; however, it always remains in my medication kit and I take it whenever I was not feeling good. 

Zandu Pancharishta is made of 20 plus essential natural herbs like Draksa , Kumari, Dashmoola, Asvagandha Satavari, Triphala, Guduci, Bata, Yasti,Trikatu, Trijat, Arjuna, Lodhra, Manjisthah, Ajamoda, Dhanyaka, Haridra, Sati, Sveta, Jiraka and Lavanga. 

 Taste of Zandu Pancharishta is good and I have not found any problem in consuming it so far. I will suggest use of Zandu Pancharishta to all people who are suffering from stomach related problems or who do not have a good digestive system

The price of Zandu Pancharishta is Rs 105 for a bottle of 450 ml. A single bottle can last from 15 days to 45 days depending on the dosage schedule. 

 Overall, I am very satisfied with this product and I will like to give it 8 out of 10 marks 

 Note- Zandu Pancharishta is a supplementary product which you can use to enhance your digestive system. However, its effects on different people may vary. I simultaneously used numbers of other therapies with Zandu Pancharishta; therefore, it is not possible to establish its independent effective to 100%. However, it is certain that I found it beneficial and helpful.

Precautions with Zandu Pancharishta-  

Zandu Pancharishta may be a helpful product; however, over dependence on this product can be harmful. It may not work well in patients suffering acute problem or multiple problems. One should start it with the advice of a doctor and he should start in a small dosage.

    1. Hi Ishan,

      First of All thanks for appreciation. I am happy to know that you liked this review.

      Answer to all questions is Yes, because Zandu Pancharista is a basic tonic to enhance digestive system, and it helps in all problems which are result of weak digestive system.

      Though, its effectiveness may vary from person to person and depending on severity of problem.

      To solve your problems, you are required to identify all reasons causing it and slowly remove them.

      Zandu Pancharista can offer a good help; however, it will not give much effect if you don't solve main reason/reasons causing this problem.

    1. Hi Piyush,

      Constipation is one of the common problem of Today's Life Style and in acute cases it can be very dangerous. Constipation is very bad for Heart patients because it causes more stress on the heart and can aggravate heart problems. Therefore, it is important to treat this problem. Aloe-Vera juice can be a good option for your mother if it suits her because it is a natural laxative. Aloe to have beneficial effects in heart problems and diabetes. For gas problem she can try Zandu Pancharishta after meal.

      Also advice her drink plenty of water every day and especially empty stomach. She should also eat food rich in cellulose like oats, vegetable, and salads etc.

      Psyllium seed husks (Isabgol) with hot water can provide relief from constipation.

      Cinnamon is anther house-hold item to get relief from stomach problems ( it is highly beneficial for diabetic patients and cleans bad cholesterol from the blood).

      These are some of common and natural treatments and you can choose from any of these options which suits her.

    1. You are using Zandu Pancharishta for more than four months, In general, you should see the results. If it is not working then do start taking Amla juice with it. and at morning eat a small portion of Aloe Vera pulp (if it is not available do take Aloe Vera juice.

      Reduce intake of fried and oily food for sometime and follow a healthy life style (like wake up early and regular exercise)

      if you don't see any result with these methods then do consult a good physician.

    1. In my opinion, one should not give Zandu Pacharisht to a 2 Year kid because the Kid's digestive system is much different from the digestive system of grown ups. It may even cause harm to the kid.

      However, for the best opinion, one should consult a good Child physician.

    1. No it is not OK to take Zandu Pancharista when you have no issue. Instead you should look for healthy alternatives and good diet. Life long use of any drug may cause some problems in long run. It is an Ayurvedic medicine, therefore, safer than other drugs. But this doesn't mean that you should start taking it without any cause.
