The Origin Story
Dating back at least 5,000 years, Chyawanprash is rooted in the ancient Ayurveda principle that food and medicine should be intertwined. Chyawan, a revered sage, was meditating when he was blessed with a formula designed to increase longevity and improve quality of life. He also gained insight into “prash” which signifies the importance of consuming food artfully.
Chyawan created his recipe and over the next 40 days consumed a small amount at 4:00 am just prior to 40 minutes of meditation. He discovered that not only was his formula safe, but that it had an anti-aging effect. Since that time, the formulation for Chyawanprash has been incorporated into Ayurveda texts in the Rasayana tradition, which focuses on revitalizing the body and mind.
PIOR Living Chyawanprash has 35 distinct, all-natural ingredients. The foundation is Indian gooseberry, an organic superfruit that establishes three interdependent life forces: generation, existence, and dissolution. The essence of 17 ethically gathered, wild crafted botanicals is extracted through a process known as decoction. Next, other unprocessed botanicals are incorporated in raw powder form and handpicked aromatic spices are added as functional flavors. To follow, natural agents are used during each phase of preparation, a wholesome process designed to mirror the body’s molecular regeneration mechanisms. Finally, the Chyawanprash is aged to optimally metabolize; the result is a 100% natural, gluten free, and allergen-free superfood intended to provide you with a boost as you move through your day. It famously serves as a counterpart to your yoga or meditation practice, by rejuvenating your mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.
