One of the areas where even Ayurvedic physicians concede to their allopathic counter parts is in treatment in management of Diabetes. Especially the management of type 2 diabetes is a challenging task for ayurvedic physicians. This is not completely down to lack of options in Ayurveda to treat diabetes.

 Many ancient ayurvedic texts classify diabetes as Madhumeha and have many solutions. According to a conference paper made available on researchgate titled “Diabetes Mellitus type 2: Focus on Clinical Research in Ayurveda” ancient Indian medical classics like Sushruta Samhita and Charaka Samhita mention diabetes as madhumeha and classify it as astringent and sweet. The study also suggests mention of the disease in the Vedas. 

Many indigenous herbs and fruits are suggested in these ancient texts for treatment and management of diabetes. Some of the diabetes treating ingredients lifted from our ancient texts includes amla, gudduchi, karavellaka, tvak, bimba, turmeric, neem, methi and jambu extracts. Many ayurvedic texts from a later period mention medicines which are mostly formed by a mixture of these herbs and other indigenous plant extracts for treatment of diabetes.

Gayatriyadi Kashayam is a formulation combining such natural ingredients mentioned in these ancient texts for management of madhumeha or diabetes. This ancient formula is prepared by SNA Aushadhashala as described in the ancient ayurvedic text “Ashtangahrudhayam”.


The herbs and naturally occurring minerals used for the preparation of this tonic reduce blood sugar levels. It improves metabolism and helps in the quick digestion of carbohydrates and sugars. Gayatriyadi Kashayam also might help improve pancreas functionality. This ayurvedic medicine might help improve the ability of pancreas to produce insulin. The weakening of the pancreas and its inability to produce insulin, a component which helps in dissolving excess sugars in the blood is the cause of diabetes. This natural herbal elixir is designed to cure this inability. 

SNA Aushadhashala’s Gayatriadi Kashayam also helps in improving other bodily complications which occur due to diabetes.


The biggest drawback of most allopathic drugs recommended for diabetes is that they show adverse side effects when used continuously for a long period of time. The number of people who get comorbidities because of not regulating diabetes and the number of people who develop comorbidities like kidney stone and liver diseases for consuming diabetes drugs for a long period of time are almost identical. This is largely due to the action specific chemicals and components present in diabetic medicines. Ayurvedic medicines like Gayatriadi Kashayam are made from pure herbs and naturally occurring minerals making them relatively free from adverse side effects while providing similar efficacy.


According to a paper made available on Researchgate titled “Diabetes Mellitus type 2: Focus on Clinical Research in Ayurveda”, the efficacy of Ayurvedic diabetes management system is on par with allopathic system and also with a combination of Ayurveda and Allopathy. This clinical study was performed on 30 samples in each category and the efficacy of all three types of treatment gave similar results. The same study recommends Gayatriadi Kashayam as one the recommended ayurvedic medicine for treatment of diabetes.


One of the functions of Gayatriadi Kashayam is to help improve digestion. This is primarily aimed at digesting blood sugars. Poor digestive health means many diabetic patients tend to gain weight. Gayatriadi Kashyam increases the jataragni or digestive fire and thus helps in digestion and metabolism which in turn helps maintain a healthy weight.


Gayatriadi Kashayam is an action specific ayurvedic medicine. Hence it is best to consume this medicine only under medical supervision.

Normally 5ml to 10ml is recommended three times a day. Consult an Ayurvedic doctor to know your personalized dose with respect to your dosha karmas and gunas.

This Kashayam from SNA Aushadhashala can be consumed along with your allopathic diabetic medicines but a continuous monitoring of blood sugar levels is recommended.
