How Does It Work?

Swarna Prashana (Suvarna Prashana) contains gold as the main ingredient. It is made into suvarna bhasma through a special process because gold cannot be consumed in its metallic form. Gold is known to boost immunity as well as enhance memory.

Another important ingredient present in Swarna Prashana (Suvarna Prashana) is the honey. Honey is prepared by collection of pollen grains.

Swarna Prashan can be given every day as per the below chart –

Infants to 5 years – 1 drop every day

10 to 16 years – 3 drops every day

When to take:

2. Do not have food at least for 30 minutes after consumption of swarnaprashan

Importance of Pushya Nakshatra For Swarna Prashna 

It is recommended that Swarna Prashna should be taken on pushya nakshatra. Pushya refers to nourishment and pushya nakshatra is one of the most auspicious of the 27 nakshatras.  The symbol of pushya nakshtra is the cow udder. If observed on the pushya nakshatra, the stars in the sky appear in an arrangement that that creates cow udder. Cow udder is associated with nourishment and so the Swarna Prashna is taken on pushya nakshatra to get optimum nourishment and benefits. Swarna Prashna can be consumed on any other day, however, the efficacy can vary and it may not be as effective as pushya nakshatra.
