Our daughter who lives in the US had both her deliveries in America. My wife had carried two bottles of this Arishtam for each of the deliveries. It had miraculous effect in post delivery health recovery. After the second delivery our daughter had severe gas problems which subsided completely after a few doses of this amazing syrup. A bottle of this Arishtam is always available at home primarily for treating indigestion or gas problems. We visit our doctor only if if the Ayurvedic Syrup fails to weave its magical effects. 
This syrup has a high shelf life as you can see from the label above. A bottle of syrup prepared in April 2015 has an expiry date of March 2025 !


  1. I have had Dasamoolarishtam when i was taking Ayurveda treatment for my disorder, and it was also brought from Arya Vaitheyasalai. It was good for health and supports the immune well. Great to know ur daughter use in in US!

  2. Hello Ram,

    Very interesting information. Does this syrup contain sugar?

    Best wishes

    1. There is some sweetness in the arishtam. If you see the list of ingredients it does not reflect sugar or glucose in any form. Possibly some of the ingredients may intrinsically contain sweeteners.

  3. Interesting. It certainly has a long list of contents.

  4. Dashoolarishtam & jeerakarishtam, I guess this is the combination?

  5. Namaste.....
    Sounds good, but am laughing here. why you may wonder, because i spend so much time here trying to pronounce the name Dasamoolajeerakadyarishtam and you shortened it to Arishtam.

    I wonder if they sell it here, Lord if they do they will no doubt sell it for an arm and a leg (means very expensive), Western society is ridiculous that way, where they can make money they will.

  6. Yes I agree the name is a tongue twister 😃 The price here in India is around Rs.128 for 450 no which is approx.US $.2/- This is exported to many countries and I am sure it would be priced exirbitantly !
