    • Usually Kashayams are administered on empty stomach. This helps in maximum absorption of the water soluble active principles of Kashaya through stomach and intestines. It helps to extract maximum benefit out of Kashaya. However, some kashayams containing ginger, pepper etc spices may be difficult to tolerate for some patients. In such cases, it is advised 10 minutes before or after food.
