Why Ayurveda regards Ghee as a "Superfood"?

Ghee as a "Superfood"

“Aham kratu aham yagyah swadha aham aushadham, Mantra aham aham ev aajyam aham agni aham hutam” - Shrimad Bhagwat Gita

Do you remember that epitome view in every classic where the sages pouring the ghee was an obligatory rite performed in yajna? This notion is derived from Vedas where ghee was essential and still is.

‘Ayurveda’, the medical scripture evolved from Vedas is considered to be the communication by God to his sages about medicinal knowledge through scriptures like Sushruta Samhita and Charaka Samhita.

 

1. Pacifies Vata

Ghee pacifies vata

As per Ayurveda, the study of life science, ghee made by bilona process extracted by cow’s milk is best of all types and diminish ‘vata’. Excess vata causes dry skin, constipation, weak joints, improper blood circulation, sleep issues, involuntary jerks and abnormal bowel movements. It is one of the best sources for curing dysuria, rhinitis, intermittent fevers with chills, diarrhoea, anorexia and emaciation. It increases strength and sperm count.

 

2. Promotes Deep Cleansing and Conditioning

Rasa, the juices of the body are increased by consuming ghee which leads to better movement and transport of nutrients. Ama, the waste products of the body are flushed out of the digestive tract with the help of ghee.

Ghee is a yogivahi, or catalytic agent that carries the medicinal properties of herbs to the deep tissues, which are the seven dhatus of our body.

 

 

3. Enhances Life force

ghee enhances life force

According to Ayurveda, ghee increases Ojas, Tejas and Prana.

Ojas is the essence of strong immunity, liveliness and energy. Tejas is the essence of our aura, clarity, courage, and understanding and comprehension at the cellular level. Prana which is responsible for subtle essence of Vata or air element, vitality and energy and the processes of respiration, circulation, digestion, excretion etc hence these three looks upon both your outer and inner health wholesomely in the body known as Yogavahi.

 Ayurveda considers food as medicine and medicine as food and hence it vouches on the enchantment of ghee which flows in our food stream just like the holy river the Ganges flow through the soil of India.
