|AMRIT KALASH (Maharishi Ayurveda)
Amrit Kalash is an ancient ayurvedic formulation for the mind and body. It blends thirteen of Ayurveda’s most celebrated and potent herbs blended in careful precision to render a powerful rejuvenative tonic that works deep within the subtle layers of the body to revitalize the fundamental forces of life, Ojas and Tejas, and bring balance to Prana, the consciousness of the body. The healing powers of Amrit are directed at three fundamental aspects of the body, the nerves, the blood, and the gross tissues like muscles and bones. Through rejuvenating these three elements of the body, it accomplishes a remarkable rejuvenation of the entire body and mind that has proved effective for treatment of a great variety of diseases and chronic conditions.
The healing power of Maharishi Amrit stems from its precise blending of thirteen powerful herbs. Using a few principle herbs to establish and direct the activities of the supporting herbs, it renders a symphony of synergy that stimulates and supports the most essential functions of the body.
Ashwanganda, Vidhari Kand, Amla, and Shankhapushpi take the central roles in this formulation. Each of these herbs is calming to the nerves and strength giving, however each has a special potency of its own that contributes to the power and harmony of Amrit. Ashwagandha acts as the leader. It is generally calming to the nerves, supporting the regeneration of tissue and the restoration of strength. Next Vidhari Kand cleanses the blood and supports healthy liver function, while Amla is likewise cleansing for the body, but uniquely tonifying and very supportive of the immune system. Finally, Shankhapushpi, being one of the best tonics for the mind and the nerves, clears the mind and the subtle channels of blockages and toxins, calms the nerves, and supports all mental functions. Each of the remaining nine herbs was carefully chosen to support these several activities.
Through this blend of potencies, Amrit Kalash accomplishes a profound and comprehensive rejuvenation of the body and mind. Its blood purifying and liver cleansing activities are both generally supportive of healthy and robust tissue generation as well as relieving of many various chronic liver related conditions from psoriasis and leprosy to debilitating conditions like Lyme and Crohn’s disease. The tissue regenerative and strength giving properties of herbs like Ashwangandha and White Musli work in coordination with the purifying activities to maximize the development of new and healthy tissue and the restoration of strength. These two types of activities combined work further to relieve the problems of chronic debilitating diseases. In addition, the nerve calming and mind clearing activities work to relax the body and support mental function, both of which are essential not only for recovering from serious illness, but also generally for healthy living. In this way Amrit offers the body and mind overall rejuvenation.
In addition to the general healing activities, it has several exceptional properties which contribute to its distinguished place among Ayurvedic rasayanas. Most notably among these is the high level of anti-oxidants contained in it. Many of the herbs comprising MAPI Amrit are high in various types of anti-oxidants. These help to clear away free radicals and ions which cause premature degeneration of tissue and DNA. These anti-oxidant activities help fight aging and damage done by poor dietary habits. Furthermore, Amla contains the highest level of naturally occurring Vitamin C. Consequently, Amla and several other herbs contained in Amrit are highly supportive of the immune system, both fighting infection through their toning and astringent qualities and encouraging the development of anti-bodies. Furthermore, many of these herbs are cleansing and stimulating for general digestion and the metabolic activities of all tissues. Thus it encourages proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients, and generally renews the body.
Given these powerful activities it is no wonder that Maharishi Amrit Kalash has won such high regard throughout the centuries and around the world. It penetrates deep to the heart of the central functions of the body, to improve the quality and quantity of blood, improve circulation and the production of tissue, calm the nerves, clear them mind, support the immune system and much more. It is yet all the more beloved by those with chronic and debilitating conditions because it has no side effects, and can be taken regularly and indefinitely without any risk of repercussion. Maharishi Amrit Kalash (MAK) is a well-balanced formulation that has been a cherished part of Ayurveda for centuries.
Amrit Kalash Supports and Enhances the following:

Of all the rasayanas the Maharishi Amrit Kalash is by far the most universal in its application and beneficial in its effect. “Rasayana of Rasayanas”
Maharishi Amrit Kalash is a combo-pack of 600g Herbal Fruit concentrate (Nectar Paste) and 60 Herbal tablets (Ambrosia Pills) - MAK4 and MAK5. The Nectar herbal fruit concentrate and Ambrosia herbal tablets work together to create overall health. They contain different ingredients but have complementary effects. This ancient Ayurvedic herbal supplement is known to provide balance and strength to body’s immune system by protecting the body against free radical damage. Ayurvedic experts say that Amrit Kalash contributes to the state of bala — a state where the body’s own ability to defend itself is at its optimum. Rasayana means "that which supports Rasa." Rasa corresponds to plasma and nourishes the whole body. Where single herbs can be dangerous, Rasayanas are complex combinations that include natural antidotes and herbs that are "best friends." The result is a synergistic combination (Maharishi Amrit Kalash) much more powerful than the sum of the effects of the individual herbs. Free radicals produced in the body by normal bodily processes and especially by mental and physical stress, environmental pollution and pesticides in foods can cause extensive damage in all cells, speed up the ageing process and contribute to a wide range of diseases. A diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables supplies a good amount of anti-oxidants that mop up the damaging free radicals. Comprehensive scientific research has shown that Maharishi's Amrit is the most effective known food supplement to ensure you have an adequate anti-oxidant supply.
Maharishi Amrit Kalash (nectar and ambrosia) helps maintain the health and functioning of entire physiology—it increases longevity, memory and intelligence, enhances immunity, elevates energy levels, decreases the effects of aging and enhances overall well-being. Amrit is the most powerful of all known Ayurvedic supplements, which gives the energy no other supplement can give. It is soluble in both water and fats and can thus be active throughout the body - in the blood stream and inside the cells. The latest research shows that one gram of Amrit is more effective against free radicals than 1,000 grams of vitamin C or E. It takes 240 careful steps to prepare this special product and 22 pounds of raw herb ingredients are required to produce a single jar of the Fruit concentrate. Herbal Masterpiece! Absolutely amazing!

Frequently Asked Question about Amrit Kalash:
What is Maharishi Amrita Kalash?
Maharishi Amrita Kalash (MAK) belongs to a
group of herbal formulations called “Rasayanas”. MAK enhances immunity,
optimizes physiological balance (homeostasis), counters the degenerative
effects of ageing and promotes health and longevity. MAK, made under hygienic
conditions strictly in accordance with Vedic principles, incorporating the most
modern technology and quality control, is a specially manufactured formulation
of Maharishi Ayurveda.
What is the composition of Maharishi Amrit Kalash?
Maharishi Amrit Kalash is presented in two forms.
The paste called MAK-4 is made up of thirty-eight herbs lipophilised in cow
ghee. The hydrophilic tablet known as MAK-5 is composed of thirteen herbs.
Chemical analysis shows that MAK (4 & 5) contains low molecular weight
substances and antioxidants such as polyphenols, riboflavin, catechins,
flavonoids, carotinoids, alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene, flavonoids,
carotinods, alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene, ascorbate, tannic acid and
flavoproteins in their natural form. Together they provide extremely potent
antioxidant and sustained SOD-like activity in the human body.
What is extraordinary about Maharishi Amrit Kalash?
MAK was first used as a food supplement in many of
the fifty Maharishi Ayurved Prevention Centres around the world on patients of
cancer, atherosclerosis and other chronic diseases as well as on healthy
people. Thrilled with results, teams of doctors and scientists at various
Medical Schools, Universities, Research Institutes and Laboratories undertook
major in vitro studies, animal studies and clinical trials involving MAK. Today
MAK is one of the most researched Ayurvedic formulations, showing profound
results in a variety of indications.
What is the central action of MAK?
Scientific research has shown that:
· MAK induces the human body to
produce more Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD), a natural enzyme which scavenges Free
· Being a mixture of potent
antioxidants, MAK neutralizes and scavenges Free Radicals, thus MAK also like
SOD in the human body.
Many of the clinical effects of MAK are due
to its marked potency in inhibiting lipid peroxidation. MAK penetrates deeply
into tissues where lipid peroxides are active. It also improves blood circulation,
prevents thrombosis, normalizes and strengthens the functioning of tissues and
organs and enhances immune responses.
What are Free Radicals?
Free Radicals are now universally known as
“biochemical bad boys” which are estimated to cause 70-90% of degenerative
diseases. Free Radicals (FR) are molecules or atoms having an unpaired
electron, which makes them extremely reactive. When in excess, they attack the
normally functioning cells, damage proteins, DNA and RNA. They react with
normal fatty cell membranes and produce Lipid Peroxides (LPs). LPs are
particularly harmful because they have long life, which allows them to cause
sustained damage in the body. This damage is manifested in degenerative
diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, cataract, arthritis, premature
ageing, wrinkles and cancer.
How are excessive FRs generated?
Excessive free radicals are generated in the human
body by prolonged exposure to sun, environmental pollution, nuclear radiation,
smoking, chemical stress induced by pollution, food preservatives,
insecticides, various chemical drugs and emotional stress.
What is SOD and its action in the human body?
A– Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme
naturally produced in the body. It neutralizes free radicals and prevents
formation of LPs. Different people, by virtue of heredity and/or adopted life
style, produce different amounts of Super Oxide Dismutase. When the human body
fails to produce adequate amounts of SOD to contain LP level to under 5nmol per
m1 serum, secondary oxidative damage starts, leading to degenerative disease.
MAK induces the human body to produce large amounts of SOD and also acts itself
like SOD in the body.
Exactly how does MAK help a patient who has atherosclerosis?
Oxygen Free Radicals latch onto unsaturated fats in
the cell membrane and create Lipid Peroxides (LPs). It is LPs which are
responsible for damaging endothelial lining of blood vessels, oxidizing
cholesterol and Low Density Lipoproteins and inhibiting output of Prostacyclin
Synthetase. Complex interaction of these four processes eventually leads to
atherosclerosis, stable angina and Myocardial Infarction. MAK has three
specific actions with regard to atherosclerosis and related diseases. Firstly,
MAK neutralizes and scavenges Free Radicals and prevents formation of LPs.
Secondly, it induces the body to produce more SOD to restore defence
mechanisms. And thirdly, it has been found to prevent platelet aggregation and
avoids the risk of intravascular clot formation.
Is MAK an alternative to bypass surgery?
A- MAK is not an alternative to bypass surgery. However, as a
powerful preventive agent, MAK can protect the patient form reaching the stage
when bypass surgery becomes necessary. Bypass surgery is needed when the
coronary arteries are significantly blocked by atherosclerosis, reducing the
flow of blood to the heart muscle. This situation creates lack of oxygen to the
heart and produces Angina and may lead to heart attack or Myocardial
Infarction. Since MAK prevents the factors which lead to the formation of
atherosclerosis (hardening of walls of blood vessels), it will naturally
prevent the blockage of coronary arteries. After bypass surgery, in a high
percentage of cases, the arteries are blocked again by the process of
atherosclerosis. MAK can also be helpful in preventing reperfusion injury.
Patients with indication for bypass surgery should follow the advice of their
What is the effect of MAK on Cancer?
A– MAK enhances immunity and prevents free radical
generation. This may be the mechanism of tumors. MAK (4 & 5) has been found
to prevent the formation of chemically induced (induced by DMBA) breast cancer
up to 88% in rodents. MAK has also regressed tumors in 60% of cases. MAK-4 has
been found to reduce the spread of lung cancer in animals.
Who should take Maharishi Amrit Kalash?
A– MAK is a potent tonic and as such should be
consumed by healthy people to maintain peak physical fitness. It is a powerful
preventive agent against degenerative diseases. It strengthens the immune
system and nourishes and maintains the strength, youthfulness of all tissues
and organs. It is an herbal revitalizer. People over the critical age of 30,
and particularly those working in high risk environments that lead to the
generation of excess amounts of free radicals, should take MAK regularly. Such
environments include chemical and industrial pollution, nuclear plants,
radiology laboratories and excessive exposure to sun and stress. MAK is
especially useful for people with predisposing factors to degenerative diseases
such as heart arthritis, cataract etc. these factors include family history,
hypertension, smoking etc.
As a potent protective agent for
degenerative diseases, MAK may be regularly taken by patients with
cardiovascular disease, arthritis etc. For further advice consult your
How Maharishi Amrit Kalash is to be taken?
MAK4 (Paste) 10 gms is to be taken twice a day
with milk on empty stomach both morning and evening. After half an hour of each
dose of MAK4 one tablet of MAK5 is to be taken with water. The dose of
MAK(4 & 5) may be doubled as per requirement. For diabetics, MAK4 paste is
now available in sugar free tablets but the clinical efficacy is maintained.
How long should Maharishi Amrit Kalash be taken?
A– The results start appearing within 10 days of
starting of course of MAK. For sustained results one should continue
administration for 2 to 3 months. MAK being a natural herbal formulation does
not in any disrupt normal physiological functions. MAK is non-habit forming and
therefore can be taken for any length of time in any season, particularly since
it helps in improving the immune system. For specific conditions consult your
Are there any side effects?
Being a natural herbal formulation, MAK does not
cause any harmful side effects. It has been very well tolerated by healthy
subjects as well as patients. In very rare cases, diarrhea or allergic rashes
have been reported. The conditions immediately subsided upon reduction of dose
of MAK. Since MAK 4 contains sugar also patients of diabetes mellitus should
consult their physicians. MAK 4 sugar free can also offer relief to diabetic
patients also, as the vascular damage induced by free radicals is severe in
diabetic patients also, as the vascular damage induced by free radicals is
severe in diabetic conditions and instead take MAK4 sugar (Honey) Ghee free
How to maximize the effects of Maharishi Amrit Kalash?
When used with the other approaches or Maharishi
Ayurveda, MAK contributes to be creation of an ideal state of Health, a state
in which the body is immune to disease, the mind experiences happiness and well
being and there is full mind-body integration. Over 500 modern scientific
researches have demonstrated that the practice of Transcendental Meditation, TM
Yog Asanas (neuro-muscular integration), Pranayam (neuro-respiratory
integration). Panch Karma (detoxification), the use of appropriate vegetarian
diet and daily and seasonal routines according to one’s body type and various
other approaches of Maharishi Ayurveda significantly enhance the effects of MAK
and produce a total state of well being.
Can allopathic / western medications be continued along with Maharishi Amrit Kalash?
Yes, MAK can be taken along with other allopathic / western medications, as no drug interactions have been observed with MAK so far.
MAK4 paste contains ghee, while doctors do not often recommend it?
A– Many Ayurvedic preparations are made with ghee, which aids digestion,
absorption and delivery to a target organ system. This is crucial to obtain the
maximum benefit from any formulation. The lipophilic action of ghee facilitates
transportation and contain lipids. This lipophilic nature of ghee facilitates
entry of the formulation into the call and its delivery to the mitochondria, micro
some and nuclear membrane. In the process of evaluating the activities of
natural compounds it has been found by means of sophisticated research that
when herbs are mixed with ghee, their activity and utility is potentiated many
