Ayurvedic Herbal Superfood Jam From Organic And Wild-Harvested Botanicals
PIOR Living Chyawanprash (“chah – vahn – prash”) is an ancient ayurvedic herbal jam that blends 31 organic and wild-harvested spices and herbs with honey, Ghruta ghee, jaggery, and black sesame oil to create a nourishing jam that rejuvenates the body and mind and supports overall wellness. As the foremost ayurvedic rasayana (rejuvenative therapy), Chyawanprash is one of most powerful and popular supplements for regular use in ayurvedic medicine. It's beloved for its ability to build ojas (vitality) and stimulate healthy cellular rejuvenation and tissue formation throughout the body. From the antioxidant power in amalaki to the immuno-modulating abilities of guduchi and the calming adaptogenic effects of ashwagandha, Chyawanprash's symphony of botanicals work together in harmony to support the respiratory, circulatory, immune, and digestive systems to boost overall energy and wellness, sharpen clarity and focus, and soothe the nervous system.
For general health and wellness, slowly consume 1-2 teaspoons as part of a morning routine and at least 15 min before breakfast.
Dating back at least 5,000 years, Chyawanprash is rooted in the ancient ayurveda principle that food and medicine should be intertwined. According to the legend of Chyawan, the revered and elderly sage was meditating when he became enlightened to a formula designed to increase longevity and improve quality of life. 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 this elixir had a rejuvenating and anti-aging effect. He also gained insight into prash, which signifies the importance of consuming food artfully and intentionally. In 100 A.D., the recipe of Chyawanprash appeared in the ancient ayurvedic text, Charaka Samhita as a medicinal remedy.

Ever since my childhood, Chyawanprash has been a staple in my daily routine. Through the years, I've experienced various brands and formulations, but I must admit, the current recipe I'm using stands out as the highest quality I've ever encountered. This isn't just another supplement; it's a cherished tradition, perfected over time to provide not just health benefits but also a sense of continuity and connection to my roots.
My mornings start with a unique ritual that combines this ancient wellness supplement with boiled cumin water. The warm, spicy flavor of cumin pairs wonderfully with the rich, complex taste of Chyawanprash, creating a comforting and invigorating start to my day. This combination, I believe, amplifies the benefits of both, setting a perfect tone for what comes next - my yoga practice.
Thank you Pior for the love and intention you put into this ancient recipe.
The taste is really good compared to the other competitors out there
I'm new to eating chyawanprash. I had read online about its health benefits, but then also read that since all formulations are different, the tastes can range from barely edible to good. After looking at a bunch of reviews of various brands, I settled on Pior, and am glad I did. It actually has quite an interesting taste to it.
This is my first time ordering from Pior and first time using chawanprash. The order arrived quickly, packaged well. I like that it is in a glass jar. I've been using it for two weeks now. I like the taste. Too soon to say if it is helpful but haven't had any negative effects. Thanks!
My husband has been taking this Chyawanprash for a few weeks now, and he feels it is a high quality product that will benefit his health long term. It seems to provide a calming energy. And it tastes nice too. We have been very happy with all products from Pior Living. Top notch!!!
