  8. What is the difference between Siddha Makardhwaj and Makardhwaj? And are they prescribed for different problems. Are their effects the same?

    • Effect is quite similar, though Siddha Makaradhwaj is slightly more effective.
      The ingredients are same but the amount of Swarna Bhasma is four times more in Siddha Makaradhwaj than plain makaradhwaj.

    My ayurvedacharya advised me to take this product lifelong (half a tablet a day with honey) for better fitness as I am also an active sportsperson. I am now 50. Is it okay if I take this dosage lifelong as a prophylactic as I have noticed brilliant results in the form of improved fitness and greater stamina with improved concentration levels to go with it. Please do advise……….:)
