Review of Zandu Pancharishta (An Ayurvedic tonic for digestive system)


Zandu, review, pancharishta,

Today, I will talk about one of the very famous ayurvedic drugs available in the market the name Pancharishta and this drug is made by Zandu Pharmacy. This product is not a new product in the market but it is a very old brand and still enjoys great acceptance among the people. Zandu Pancharishta is basically a product made of various ayurvedic herbs to heal problems in the stomach. As this product is available in the market for many long years, it shows its popularity and its effectiveness. A product can only survive in the market if it has some good properties. I have a long association with the Zandu Pancharishta and I have used it multiple times to solve problems arising in my stomach. In India, we are seeing a huge jump in lifestyle problems and health issues because of the wrong eating and sleeping habits of people. People are eating the wrong food and not following the right patterns of exercise and sleep. 


Rise of Stomach Problems in people

These bad lifestyles of people have given rise to stomach problems in people. The stomach is located in the abdominal cavity and is the first part of the digestive tract. It is used for digestion and contains a number of important organs, including the liver, pancreas, and small intestine.

The stomach has two main functions: it stores food until it can be digested, and churns food to break it down into pieces small enough for further digestion by enzymes. When food enters the stomach from the oesophagus, hydrochloric acid (HCl) and enzymes are added to it to break down proteins into smaller pieces. This process is called proteolysis.

Causes of Stomach Problems

There are many causes of stomach problems such as eating too much at once (gastric stasis), diarrhoea or constipation, infections (gastroenteritis), gallstones or kidney stones blocking bile ducts, tumours in the pancreas or liver, ulcers in the gastrointestinal tract (peptic ulcer disease), cancerous lesions on the inside wall of the stomach, and gastritis. Gastritis is inflammation of the stomach lining, caused by an underlying medical condition, injury, or various foods that cause adverse reactions. Gastritis is commonly associated with symptoms such as heartburn and a burning sensation in the chest after eating something spicy. It can also be called peptic ulcer disease. Peptic ulcers are typically caused by bacteria that enter the stomach through bile (from the gallbladder) or saliva (from food).

These are just a few reasons of problems may affect the stomach of any person. Now you all know that our stomach can be upset due to so many reasons then how we can find a single solution for it. But in India, it is the tendency of common people to find the solution for all the problems in a single answer and here we do the wrong. 

The problem with the Zandu Pancharishta is also the same and people expect too much from it. They want it to do wonders and even solve their chronic or severe stomach problems. In my experience, Zandu Pancharishta is a good ayurvedic product but it is useful for minor or mild stomach problems online. If a problem of the stomach has become acute or conical then it is better to look for some other solutions and consult a good physician. 

The trend of Ayurvedic medicines

It is good that people have started loving and trusting ayurvedic medicines but we can't expect them to do miracles. These drugs are effective and they are very useful in treating health problems but every ayurvedic drug has its limitations. The drugs like Zandu Pancharista are simple products made to solve minor problems which we can treat without visiting a physician. The good point of it is that it is made of common herbs that are known to be useful for many stomach issues and have home remedies. 

Ingredients of Zandu Pancharishta 

Zandu Pancharishta is made of 20 plus essential natural herbs like Draksa, Kumari, Dashmoola, Asvagandha Satavari, Triphala, Guduci, Bata, Yasti, Trikatu, Trijat, Arjuna, Lodhra, Manjisthah, Ajamoda, Dhanyaka, Haridra, Sati, Sveta, Jiraka and Lavanga. 

How Zandu Pancharista Works?

Zandu Pancharishta works on 7 centres of our digestive system to improve our various health issues related to the stomach or digestive tract. these 7 centres which are treated by Zandu Pancharista are the Salivary Glands, stomach, liver, Gall Bladder, Pancreas, Small intestine and large intestine. All these 7 systems are important because when they will work fine then only we can hope that our digestive system is working fine and we will have no problem in our stomach. The herbs present in the Pancharishta work in all these centres by increasing their effectiveness. 

My Verdict on Zandu Pancharishta 

I have experience using Zandu Pancharishta for a long time and I have used it multiple times in the last fifteen years. Initially, I was suffering from many stomach problems like heartburn, acute acidity, stomach pain, stomach inflammation etc. I used Zandu Pancharista with many other home remedies. Plus I made many changes to my lifestyle. I started eating food that is categorised well for the stomach like salads, green vegetables, Aloe vera, etc. While I refrained from unhealthy food items like oily food, junk food or packaged food. 

The result of all these measures was quite an improvement in my stomach-related problems. Now I sometimes use Panchristra for my acidity and indigestion problems.  I have found this product works well every time. But I again want to caution that though Zandu Pancharishta is a good product it is useful for mild stomach problems only.

Final Verdict - It is a very good product for mild stomach issues but you may also need to control your food habits and lifestyle disorders too.
