Does Chyawanparsh contain metals?
Q: I take a spoonful of Chyawanprash everyday. I read in a newspaper report that these supplements contain anabolic steroids and heavy metals like mercury, arsenic, etc. Is it true? Should I stop taking it?
A:As far as my knowledge goes, any Chyawanprash would contain metals, but not the ones harmful to the body. It is best that one reads label to confirm ingredients used in preparation and packaging of the product. If a consumer is in doubt, they can take a sample of the product for laboratory tests. It is best not to go with newspaper reports unless they are tested and have evidential proof.
