    • Its expiry date is – 3 years from the date of manufacture. But once you open it, it should be emptied or thrown out, within 4 – 5 months.

      • Should I avoid any foods while taking these medicine?

          Hello madam, No.

          Note: It is best to use this product under medical supervision. Self medication with this medicine is discouraged.Please do consult a ayurvedic physician before taking over the counter medication. Because we all are genetically different with different constitutions and patterns, we respond to treatments in many different ways. Hence Standard Ayurvedic Treatments are always individually formulated. And the dosage is taken into consideration seeing several factors which include the age, sex and health of the individual.

  2. “Special care and precaution is required while administering this medicine to people with diabetes” – What care is required?

    • It may reduce blood sugar levels. If you are diabetic and already taking medicine, then the dosage of diabetic medicine and your blood sugar levels need monitoring, while taking this medicine.

        • A lot of it depends upon the condition. Since you have a long history, a general assumption can be made that the medicine would keep the disease under control. It can be continued for a long time, only if your Ayurveda doctor advises.
