Children, Rasayanas and Amrit Kalash
The many benefits of Amrit Kalash are usually seen from an adult point of view -- the focus being anti-aging and general rejuvenation. But a rasayana can have a profound positive effect on the health of growing kids too.
In Maharishi Ayurveda, Amrit Kalash is in a class of herbs called rasayanas. Translated, rasayana means "that which enters the essence" or, in other words, "that which promotes health and longevity." These herbal compounds work on the level of the seven dhatus -- or the seven layers of bodily tissue that, according to Maharishi Ayurveda, make up the physiology.

The School Years
In the next phase of childhood, kids enter into the formal educational process. The Medhya Rasayana herbs like Shankapushpi and Gotu Kola contained in the Amrit Kalash formula provide a remarkable source of support for mental and intellectual functioning. According to Maharishi Ayurveda, there are three aspects of mental ability: dhi -- learning; dhriti -- retention; and smriti -- recall. All three of these aspects are enhanced individually as well as coordinated with each other by the Medhya herbs, promoting clarity, understanding and memory.
The overall effect is to stabilize the emotions, increase the resistance to everyday stress and enhance coordination between mind and heart. A balanced Sadhaka Pitta gives rise to a general sense of satisfaction and well being, which forms the basis of a person's ability to give. Giving love, friendship, support, empathy and understanding -- this is the source of meaningful, rewarding relationships.
Using Amrit Kalash with children is simple
The dosage of Nectar Paste for children ages 2-4 years old is 1/4 teaspoon twice a day. It can be dissolved in warm milk and given in the morning and evening. Ages 4 - 10 years old can take 1/2 teaspoon of the Nectar Paste and 1/2 tablet of the Ambrosia. The Nectar can again be dissolved in warm milk or taken as is from the jar. The Ambrosia 1/2 tablet is usually just dissolved in the mouth or chewed and swallowed. For teens (ages 10 and above) the dose is the same as adults -- 1 teaspoon of Paste and 1 tablet of Ambrosia twice a day, morning and evening.
