Weight Gain




How Does Ayurveda Help in Gaining  Weight?

Ayurveda uses natural ingredients to help you gain weight. You’re not using drugs or commercial medicines when you resort to Ayurveda, because you’re literally turning to nature. This means you don’t experience any side effects in your body. The doses are mild too and most Ayurvedic products are available in capsule or powder form, making ingestion a lot easier.

Effective Ayurvedic Medicines for Weight Gain

Since you may be of vata dosha body type, there’s a limit to how much weight you can gain, despite the supplements and remedies we’re including. That said, you will be reaching your ideal weight and getting stronger and healthier in the process. And isn’t that what you want – to be your very best self?

Now, to the top Ayurvedic weight gain supplements:

1. Ashwagandha Churna

Ashwagandha churna is a tonic herb that is used for various medicinal purposes. It’s called the ‘Indian Ginseng’ and is adaptogenic, which means it lowers your stress and leaves you feeling emotionally healthy. 100mg a day is a good starting point but you can up the dosage if needed. We recommend taking it in powder form and consuming it with milk for best results.

2. Shatavari

Shatavari is a herb that is used to balance hormones in women. It’s known to increase your weight, hydrate your entire physiology, and give a boost to your digestive system.








3. Chawanprash

If you’re experiencing a lack of appetite, you’ll be happy to know that any Ayurvedic chawanprash will help. It’s known to increase your bone density, strengthen your muscles, and has a nice blend of nutrients that boost your digestive system too. The result? You feel hungrier and crave more food, thus taking in more calories and leading to weight gain.

4. Custard Apple

You may be thinking – but that’s a fruit! Yes, and it’s an Ayurvedic herbal remedy too. If you eat the fruit for a whole month, you’ll notice a gain in your body weight plus your muscles will be stronger and more responsive. The seeds can be powdered and taken with milk too.






5. Yashtimadhu (Licorice Root)

Licorice Root is one of the best Ayurvedic remedies for weight gain. Low immunity is one of the biggest reasons behind weight loss and you’ll find yourself gaining weight when you fix it. It also improves your stamina, endurance, and repairs your stomach lining, thus improving your nutrient absorption capacity and digestion.
