Medicinal Uses & Health Benefits

All ingredients in Zandu Pancharishta have effect on digestive system. Here are some key benefits for demonstrating the effects of each ingredient.

  3. Triphala directly has mild laxative action, which plays a supportive role in management of constipation and other digestive ailments.
  4. Asparagus, licorice, Giloy, Coriander and cumin are good antacid, which gives relief from acidity, gastritis and heartburn.
  5. All other ingredients have supportive roles. They improve digestion and provide strength to digestive organs.

Acidity, Heartburn & Gastritis

As per above analysis of property and benefits of ingredients, Zandu Pancharishta is beneficial in moderating the secretion of acid in the stomach. Therefore, it reduces excess acid production, but keeps appetite at optimum level. Sometimes, hyperacidity can also result in loss of appetite and anorexia due to burning in the throat, chest and abdomen. Many patients have reported this. Pancharishta is also beneficial for these people. However, they may require praval pishti, mukta pishti and amla (Indian gooseberry) and mulethi powder in addition to this.

Gas, flatulence, Bloating, Abdominal distension or Feeling of Heaviness in the abdomen

Zandu Pancharishta contains ingredients, which have Antiflatulent and carminative effects. Ingredients like raisin, aloe vera, cumin, coriander, Trikatu, Manjistha, Ajmod, Shati, Jeera and Laung all are helpful for reducing intestinal gas, flatulence, bloating and abdominal heaviness.

Loss of appetite & Indigestion

Zandu Pancharishta increases appetite and helps in Indigestion. Some herbs in this formulation have appetizer characteristics and digestive stimulant properties.

Constipation

The main ingredients of Zandu Pancharishta are raisins and aloe Vera, which help in acute as well as in chronic constipation. Ashwagandha and shatavari provides strength to intestines and abdominal muscles, which helps moving the foods. Dashmool, Giloy and mulethi improve peristalsis movement. Some herbs in Pancharishta improve liver functions, which helps in a proper flow of bile into intestines, which also improves peristalsis. All these things help person getting rid of all types of constipation.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) with constipation and linked with stress

However, Zandu Pancharishta may not be beneficial for people with IBS in which diarrhea or loose stool is a big trouble, but it is effective for people who suffer from IBS with constipation as predominant symptom. All herbs in Pancharishta reduce bloating and constipation. Stress is also another precipitating factor for irritable bowel syndrome. Ashwangandha and licorice helps fighting off this factor too. Therefore, Pancharishta will also be effective for stress linked IBS.

Mild abdominal chronic pain

Dashmool and cumin have carminative and antispasmodic action, which helps in mild abdominal chronic pain. The main characteristic of this pain is constant dull ache in the abdomen. It may also be associated with abdominal heaviness and gas. In all these, Zandu Pancharishta helps.

Caution & Side Effects

Zandu Pancharishta may be safe for most people. There is no herb in this, which has severe side effects. However, diabetic patients should not consume it. It may result in rise in blood sugar level.

Side Effects

  1. Fluctuation in blood sugar level in diabetic people
  2. Gastric irritation due to fermented content (rare)
  3. Burning sensation in throat (if taken without diluting it with water)

Contraindications

Diabetes & its complications

Pancharishta can increase blood sugar level due to its sugar content and raisins. Fermented medicines and medicines with alcoholic content are also contraindicated in diabetes because they can cause fluctuation in blood sugar level.

Mouth Ulcer

However, Pancharishta has some cooling herbs, which means it can also provide relief in mouth ulcer and acidity. Due to fermentation process and alcoholic content, the anti-ulcer effects are reduced at a greater extent. Therefore, if one has history of mouth ulcers, it may increase tendency of recurrence of mouth ulcer. However, it may occur rarely, but one should be aware of this effect.

  2. Pradip Kumar Bose says

    A month back, I was operated for enlarged prostrate (4th June, 2015). Subsequently, the Creatinine and Urea levels have to remain normal i.e. 0.67 to 1.17 mg/dL for creatinine and 17.00 to 43.00 mg/dL). I also have this burping problem and when this happens, I feel fatigued. After burping things, become normal. Excess gas is also there. This problem becomes o.k. after I used Zandu Pancharishta.

    My question: Does using Zandu will have any effect on the Creatinine & urea levels?
    Please clarify. (I hope Pancharishta does not have any metallic content).
    Thanks and regards
    P. K. Bose. (age. 65 years)

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      1. According to the ingredients written on Zandu Pancharishta bottle, it does not contain any heavy metal content. So, it may not be responsible for any renal injury.

      2. I also hope that Zandu Pancharishta may not cause this as most of its ingredients we are using in our Indian kitchen every day. It does not contain even any poisonous herb. According to me, some of its ingredients help improving kidney functions. These herbs include raisins, dashmool, triphala, Giloy, dhania, jeera, etc.

      3. Some allopathic medicines are also responsible for damaging kidneys. For example, these may include antibiotics such as streptomycin, gentamicin, painkillers such as ibuprofen (commonly used), naproxen (used for headache or migraine), antihypertensive drugs such as ACE inhibitors, chemical dyes used during radiographic tests and many more. The role of these medicines should also be ruled out.

      1. Sushmin Shrestha says

        Can the patient with high blood pressure and similarly with low blood pressure use pancharishta?

        1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

          Yes, Pancharishta does not contain any ingredient, which can affect blood pressure negatively. However, some ingredients (Arjuna, Ashwagandha etc.) in Pancharishta strengthen the heart muscles and improve heart functions. People with hypertension or hypotension both can use Pancharishta safely.

      Ayurvedic Home Remedy for Heartburn & Burning in the Throat

      Licorice (Mulethi) Powder = 1 gram

    Hi, How long we can continue taking Zandu Pancharishta and read above the intake dosage to 30 ml but on the bottle its mentioned two full spoon with equal quantity of water. Please confirm what is the right dosage.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      1. You may require taking it as long as your digestive ailment continues. When you feel your natural digestive functions are restored, then you should stop it.

      2. Actually, the dosage can vary according to the health conditions or Symptoms. The general dosage should be the same as you read on the bottle i.e. 10 ml. Here we are taking about the minimum and maximum possibilities of the therapeutic dosage, which can vary from 5 ml to 30 ml i.e. 1 tsp. to 6 tsp. However, your consulting doctor can decide better for the accurate dosage as per your health condition.

I want to ask why it is happening to me. Is there any solution for not feeling sleepy after taking Zandu Pancharishta?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Pancharishta contains some herbs like Ashwagandha, which relax the mind. Secondly, it also contains a small amount of self-generated alcohol, which may also cause sleepiness.

      However, it may be very rare event because you are the first one who have complained and reported us this effect.

      There may be the possibility that you are also taking heavy foods, junk foods or processed foods, which may be the actual cause for this.

      The best remedy to avoid sleepiness, you should take abundant of antioxidant, vitamins, minerals and natural fiber from the foods. These things will make you more alert. For this, you should increase the intake of fruits and vegetables. Fruit juice will not be beneficial than fruits itself.

      The first line measures should be the dietary changes. If you still having problem, then Shankhpushpi Syrup or Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri) Capsules should be beneficial for reducing sleepiness and increasing alertness and concentration.

  29. Aashish Bana says

    Sir, I’m taking SEPTRON for my prostate infection, but I’m losing weight and getting weaker and weaker due to antibiotic. I’m having gas and acid problem, severe back pain and upper abdomen pain. I had CT abdomen, which is completely normal. So please tell me – will Zandu Pancharisht help me to improve my health? Will there be any side effect of zandu pancharist with SEPTRON?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      According to my opinion, you should not use Pancharishta with any kind of allopathic medicines especially with antibiotics. You should consult your doctor for this problem who has advised you the course of antibiotic. Antibiotic has a certain day course, so it will be better to start Pancharishta after the completion of antibiotic course.

  30. Aashish Bana says

    Firstly, thank you sir. Actually, I started it yesterday took 2 times, but there is severe pain in my gums and jaw after that, so I stopped it today.

    Please advice.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      I hope Pancharishta can help in such case. Additionally, Bhringrajasava can also help in chronic constipation by secreting bile into the intestine and stimulating intestinal movements.

  36. Mursheed says

    Sir,

    I have been suffering from a very strange problem of digestion for the last 25 years or so. There is huge amount of gas build up below chest. The gas DOES NOT either pass as burping or fart. Because of this gas, whole night, I keep tossing from one side to another. This distension remains all the time. Whenever gas passes, I feel relaxed, but it’s very rare.
    The surprising thing is that I have no Acidity even then why so much gas and that too no passage of gas.

    I have taken all the measures like salad, fruits, etc.

    Is Pancharist going to help me in this case? Please advice.

  37. Sunny says

    Dear Sir,

    I have problem of gas. 24 X 7, I burp that are too loud and strange. Whatever I eat, even when I don’t eat, I get severe acidity (gas). I had been diagnosed with GERD in Feb. Took medicines for almost 4-5 months. But the problem still persists. It is really causing trouble and I pray this to go away.
    Any chances with Zandu pancharisht
    Look forward to your advice.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      I don’t think Pancharishta can benefit in such case alone. You also require other remedies. Some of them are licorice, Lasunadi vati, dhanjaya vati, Arogyavardhini vati etc. I suggest you to consult nearby ayurvedic doctor.

  38. Amit says

    Sir, I am 26 years old. I am getting burps from past 2 months, which are strange; I get these all the times and more after meals and diagnosed with GERD. Also, I feel heaviness in head.
    Could you please suggest any remedy, as I am taking allopathic medicine for two months without much effect?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Pancharishta may also help in such condition along with Drakshasava. The simple home remedy for burps is:
      1. Fennel Seeds (Saunf) = 60 grams
      2. Coriander Seeds or dried leaves powder = 40 grams
      3. Celery Seeds (Ajmoda) = 10 grams
      4. Dried Ginger (Sonth) = 5 grams
      Mix all ingredients in provided ratio and take 1/2 tsp. with water after meal twice daily.

  39. pk says

    Hi doc, I am 35, suffering from high BP from last 8 years. Now from last one year, I am facing problem of bloating and acidity. Can I try Zandu pancharisht along with my regular hypertension medication i.e. NEBIVOLOL 5mg

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Pancharishta has not reported any interaction with any antihypertensive drugs, but keeping 3 hours gap between these medicines will be best practice for precaution.

  40. rakesh kumar says

    I have been using Zandu Pancharishta since one and half month two times daily regularly. Yesterday I checked my blood sugar level, which was 102 in fasting and 167 after taking food of two hours. Dr. stated this is slightly up. Sir please tell me how much blood sugar increased after taking zandu pancharist regularly. I don’t have increase blood sugar level ever. How many days the blood sugar affected by zandu pancharist after leaving it because I wanted to recheck my blood sugar level.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      The recommended dosage of Pancharishta contains less amount of sugar. According to clinical dietetics, one serving of foods that contains less than 15 grams sugar content are not likely to affect blood sugar level.
      According to this concept, Pancharishta may not affect your blood sugar level in the recommended dosage (10 ml or 2 tsp.).

    I am pregnant and suffering gas problems. Can I take zandhu pancharist?

  42. Narinder says

    Sir, I would like to know, can we use this 2 table spoon with water empty stomach.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      Can we take Pancharishta on empty stomach?

      Pancharishta should not be taken on empty stomach because taking it on empty stomach or before meal may cause irritation in food pipe due to fermented content. It should be taken immediately after meal as per recommended dosage.

      1. Narinder says

        Thanks you very much sir :)

  43. Rahul Das says

    Sir, I am 20 years old. My stool is liquid since 3 years. I go to toilet at least 4-5 times per day. I have gas problem too. USG and Endoscopy has been done, but there is no problem. Can I try zandu pancharist?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      I don’t think Pancharishta would be helpful in your case. You may require other remedies and it will be better to consult any ayurvedic doctor near to your home for better treatment.

  44. Ronny says

    1. Can you please tell us diet with Pancharishta use for gastric problems?

    Does the Jhandu Pancharishta work for burning sensation while pee?

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

    I had undergone operation for removal of oesophagus due to cancer in 2012. Some portion of the stomach has also been cut. Since then I m leading a normal life. All my reports are normal. However many a time I get indigestion associated with bloating quickly which continues for many days despite taking light food & Digene. Also if I eat oily food , non home cooked food or little overeating result in loose motion which continues for a month or so. Somehow loose motion has been controlled by homeopathy medicine for 3-4 months. I also had treatment for ulcers in stomach 2 years back.
    Considering all above do you recommend me to take Zandu Pancharisht .
