Since ancient times, any minor disease in our country has been treated with home remedies. Even today, if a person complains of a nose block or sore throat, most households suggest a spoonful of honey or ginger tea. Be it a mild concoction of turmeric milk or roasted ajwain for the stomach or a peppery rasam for the flu, Indians always know the perfect formula to soothe pesky symptoms. Most of this knowledge finds its roots in Ayurveda.
India, where Ayurveda originated, uses a plethora of medicinal herbs and spices to treat minor ailments. This alternative healing system has proven effective and has received great appreciation for offering solutions with no side effects. The acceptance and fame of Ayurveda are so widespread that even Western civilization now understands and acknowledges its relevance.
It is important that we preserve this ancient knowledge and ensure that its benefits reach scores of people. Hence, Zandu has been concocting Ayurvedic remedies using traditional knowledge and methods since 1910. Their products are pure, authentic, effective, and affordable. Using information and knowledge preserved in ancient Ayurvedic scriptures, Zandu has become a household Ayurvedic name.
