Ayurvedic medicine comes in the forms of churnas or tasty and delicious powders which you will love to lick.

Some churnas which are listed under Ayurvedic Medicine are avipatikar churna, ashwagandha churna, ajamodadi churna, kukubhadi churna, aamalki churna, ghoti churna, chandnadi churna, jesthabasadi churna, dhanyapanchak churna, nimbadi churna, panchasakar churna, pushyanug churna, balchatubhadra churna, mahasudarsan churna, yasthimadhu churna, raktalavangadi churna, vilvadi churna, rohitkayadi churna, and many others.
Benefits of Ayurveda are not only limited to treatment of various types of diseases or disorders but Ayurveda also helps in improving and maintaining beauty of various parts of our body like face, eyes, nose, and hair. Some ayurvedic herbs by the name of Rasayanas Keshya herbs promote overall longevity and health of our hair. Amla or the thorny Indian Gooseberry is particularly beneficial because of its ability to maintain hair strength and color. Consumption of amla on a daily basis either in tablet form or in powder form as a dietary supplement helps in promoting beauty of your hair. Triphala as I mentioned above also benefits in cleaning up the bowels and detoxification and at the same time it works as a super tonic for the human body, so there are multiple benefits of Ayurveda some of which I have mentioned above but there are many other remaining which I am unable to mention in such a small space, so the scope of Ayurvedic treatment is very wide due to its natural healing system.
