We all want to live long and healthy lives. Most of us recognize the importance of embracing a healthy diet and lifestyle, but there are additional ways we can boost longevity. In particular, more and more people are recognizing the importance of ancient herbs for longevity. Ayurveda, in particular, has much to offer in terms of wisdom and insight into harnessing the powers of ancient herbs. (To clarify, when we say “ancient herbs” we don’t mean that the actual herb is ancient. But rather, these herbs and practices have been in place within the Ayurvedic system for millennia.) In fact, within Ayurveda is a branch of medicine known as rasayana. Rasayana herbs and practices are rejuvenating protocols that support longevity and vitality. These deeply nourishing herbs enter the rasa (plasma, fluid) that bathes all bodily tissues. Rasayanas support healthy tissues development as well as the production of ojas—the vital essence (1) . Rasayana herbs specifically support this rejuvenation process. Some herbs for longevity, such as ashwagandha (Withania somninfera) root have become well known. This article will discuss some of the well known rasayanas, as well as the lesser known.
