Experience all of the flavors and notes of chyawanprash guiding you into awareness each day, to help balance your life from the inside, out. We bring you PIOR Living, a dietary ecosystem filled with life force to support a healthy, balanced, and energetic lifestyle.
We at PIOR Living are delighted to offer Ayurvedic dietary products - including our flagship chyawanprash - that deeply nourish your body, mind, and spirit, and also carry supreme flavor, because enjoyment of food is essential. PIOR Living’s products are natural and sustainably sourced from farms and villages throughout India. Informed by the ancient Vedic system, each ingredient in our chyawanprash is harvested with the seasons, minimally processed and used with intention. The result is live food that strengthens the body, mind, and spirit.
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"
In Ayurveda, diet is much more than physical nourishment. Diet is a means to nourish our bodies, minds and spirits. In this sense, diet should become “Brahma,” meaning knowledge and truth.
How do we obtain food with ‘Brahma’ (knowledge and truth)? The answer is, ‘Dietary Sovereignty' through the Dietary Ecosystem.
According to Veda, our food carries memory and imprints of the entire production process (dietary ecosystem). These memories sync with our own memories once we consume food.
Therefore the intention and integrity behind the land, habitat, farming, people, culture, and sustainability of habitat are essential to our health. This differs from the Western approach of food, which deals with nutrition on a purely chemical level. Ayurveda acknowledges the chemical importance of food but also encourages a conscious understanding of the energetics of food. Once derailed from this conscious diet path, various life imbalances and disorders erupt and can degrade quality of life, resulting in inflammation and illness.
At PIOR Living, our entire production process for our chyawanprash and all our products is designed to bring you Dietary Sovereignty. We deliver an unwavering commitment to the Dietary Ecosystem, while honoring ancient heritage and practices and rasa. When you consume PIOR Living products, you will be eating in a manner that promotes health and longevity - not just for yourself, but for the world that you're part of.
Absolutely wonderful Chyawanprash! The taste is so unique and fresh. You can simply taste the organic, wildcrafted flavors of the thoughtfully chosen ingredients. I feel a sense of deep cellular rejuvenation with every teaspoon!
Fiana Anderson, Ayurveda Health Coach
I love your Chyawanprash! I just had a spoonful followed by hot milk, and I feel divine! The paper label, glass jar and ingredients are everything I've been looking for in a Rasayana. I love that you are using raw honey, jaggery, saffron, Indian fruits and spices and even raisins. Wow! Why hasn't this been done before? Thank you so much for sharing!

I have been interested in the special combination of herbs and substances in Chyawanprash for decades! My first trip to India was in 1990, and it was then that I tasted my first Chyawanprash. Since that time I have been through several international yoga teacher trainings and have been certified as an Ayurvedic Consultant through NAMA ( National Ayurvedic Medical Association), and I have been through quite a few bottles of the highly deemed Chyawanprash from many different sources. I can easily say that PIOR Living Chyawanprash is the best tasting and at the time I enjoyed it, I felt the most therapeutic benefits. Hats off to this company and their wonderful recipe of PIOR Chyawanprash!

The Chywanprash was excellent! Great quality and taste.

PIOR Living Chyanwanprash is nourishing and delicious. I've enjoyed it as rasayana after a seasonal cleanse, as a grounding morning supplement, and even as an alternative to honey on almond butter sandwiches for long days of adventure on the water. You don't have to know a lot about Ayurveda to enjoy this high quality and medicinal jam. Simply try it, enjoy and experience the benefits.

It is my great pleasure to give feedback on Prior Living Chyawanprash. The receipt of the Chyawanprash was very timely for me - I took as an integral part of my rasayana regimen after pancha karma. I have taken a number of different brands of chyawanprash over the years when I am in India and the Prior brand compares very favorably with the very best authentic brands I have tried in Kerala. It was not only delicious but had an invigorating effect which helped weakness after pancha karma. I certainly recommend PIOR Living Chyawanprash for my clients and for anyone experiencing weakness.

Chyawanprash has become one of my favorite new essential additions to my morning rituals. I absolutely love the taste and I appreciate how it has enhanced my routine, physically and mentally. Especially during the winter months it has been deeply effective for boosting my immune system here in Seattle. I am feeling more energy, more radiant, and it has truly curbed my sweet tooth over the past month. Highly recommend to try this! Off the mat, & into your life. Not to mention, the packaging and container is so durable and it keeps it so fresh in my refrigerator!
"I started taking PIOR Living Chyawanprash about a year ago as a supplement and recently incorporated it into my daily fasting routine. In addition to the daily 16-hour fasting, I have a 1 1/2 hour cross-fit training that makes breaking the fasting very important. So, I found that breaking the fasting with this product has produced incredible results in weight (fat) loss and endurance."
"I first tried this product after having traveled on and off for about 4 months. Needless to say I was pretty low energy and on the verge of being extremely sick. After just 3 days of taking this product every morning I felt my system level out and the looming cold completely vanish. My system is quite sensitive and I don't like supplements that jack up my energy only to bring it crashing down soon after. What I love about this product is that it gives me a beautiful consistent energy that is calming yet energizing at the same time. This feels sustainable and nourishing to my whole body. Not to mention it tastes absolutely incredible. I'm a fan!"
- I lead a very active life. I work out almost every day, travel quite a bit and consume a fairly large amount of caffeine. Even though I have a daily breathwork and meditation practice, my body can get a bit taxed from all the action I demand of it. I find that when I use Pior Living Chyawanprash, it helps my nervous system calm down. I feel it balance me on a subtle level that leaves a profound effect. I’m a big believer in ancient medicines and I’m a stickler about how the ingredients were sourced and produced. With Pior Living Chyawanprash, all the bases are more than covered and the effects are real. I couldn’t recommend it more!This is by far the tastiest and most potent Chyawanprash I have ever used. I’m a believer!
"The first time I took PIOR Living's Chyawanprash, I felt a comfortable energy surge arise, and I was actually shocked that such a gentle product could have that effect on me. I was struggling with kidney issues at the time, and had a noticeable difference in mood and energy levels when ingesting the product in the mornings. My lethargy was almost completely gone, and I felt clearer in my mind. When I stopped taking the product for a few days, as I had travelled off and forgotten to pack it, it hit me that I felt up-and-down in energy levels again. To me, it has been a game changer on a holistic spectrum overall, and the taste shifts for me every week, depending on how my body and health is doing, so I count it as an alchemical product that supports and nourishes me across all areas: Body, Mind & Soul."
"Best purchase I have made in a long time! I feel more alert when I am studying and when I meditate, I've noticed that I can stay focused for longer. It has also curbed some of my cravings and improved my mood."
"I've recently started getting into the holistic/natural approaches to food and life. I started taking Chyawanprash after reading about its benefits and was immediately drawn to how clean the product was and the quality of ingredients. I am 60 years old but feel like I’m 40. My mind is clear, I can focus and get deeper into my meditation and I always have stamina for my workouts!"
"I initially bought this product after noticing an amazing glow on my friend's face who also takes it. Not only did it help keep my acne flare-ups at bay, but it also keeps my mind clear while studying for exams. I drink this every morning with a glass of hot goat's milk and I am clear headed, focused and never felt better! Amazing product!"
