Guduchi Satvaingredients, how to make:
Guduchi – Indian Tinospora (stem) – Tinospora cordifolia –  50 grams
water – 200 ml

Giloy stems are collected. They are cut into small pieces of 2 to 3 inch length and outer husk is removed, if required. The drug is crushed and soaked in 4 – 6 times of water. The small crushed pieces of Giloy is macerated well in the water with hands. This helps to release the starchy material of Guduchi into the water.

Then the fibrous and woody  parts are removed from the vessel and the liquid is placed undisturbed to allow the starchy particles to settle down at the bottom.

The stable water above is carefully decanted out without disturbing the starch sediment. The starch sediment is washed with little quantity of water , dried in shade completely and collected.

It is stored in moist proof air-tight glass containers. The resultant white powder is around5% of the original quantity of the herb.

Expiry date: Two years from the date of manufacture. Once after opening the container, it is better to empty it within a month.

    Which color out of grey and white is better or more effective? I buy from my Ayurvedic shop which sometimes has white powder and sometimes grey.
    What is the best way to consume it?

    • Near to white colour is better.
      Best way to consume is to mix along with ghee or honey, roll into a pill form along with honey or ghee and swallow with warm water.

      • Is this same as giloy satva? Can this be given to 7 yr old kid? What shld be the dosage and how to take it? It is just like fine white powder…

        • Guduchi Satva and Giloy Satva are one and the same. It appears like white powder. It can be given to a 7 year old. The dose is 250 mg, once or twice a day, based on your doctor’s prescription.

    Can guduchi b given to kids

  3. I have guduchi growing in my garden. Till now I have used only the leaves , one or two to chew, how do I make the best use of the plant?

    • guduchi as a whole is best useful from its leaf, stem to root. guduchi satva contains all panchangas of it. but in house hold if you want to use it, it is better to take leaves and make juice of it by crushing and consume, once the plant gets dry you can make powder of the stem and root and can be used for preparing kashayas.

  5. ranjana athalye says:

    pl tell me how much satva should be taken by using spoon

    • It is very difficult to measure 500 mg in a spoon. It is roughly 1/8th of a teaspoon. Usually this is mixed with other Ayurvedic powders such as Talisadi churna, Sudarshana churna for easy dose fixing and to target the disease better.

  6. Girija Mitkar says:

    Why People with diabetes should check their blood sugar levels regularly while using Guduchi Satva ?

      Madam, Guduchi has showed the efficacy in treating diabetes mellitus by lowering blood glucose levels concluding that guduchi extract has hypoglycaemic effect. So advised to check thier blood sugar levels regularly so as to avoid any untoward symptoms.
