What dose Ayurveda say about Milk

By Dr. Preeti Jiyal(B.A.M.S)
Sr. Ayurvedic Doctor Maharishi Ayurveda

We all have been drinking milk since childhood. Better known as a complete meal because of its various nutritional qualities, let us know the best way to consume it to maximize its benefits.

According to Ayurveda, Milk is effective in bal­ ancing the Vata and Pitta doshas, increasing vitality, promoting physical & mental develop­ ment, increasing stamina, regulating & detoxify­ ing imbalanced doshas, enhancing wound heal­ ing & reducing pain significantly. It has a cold and moistening property.

Milk has been considered potent in the treatment of various disorders such as Raktpitta ( bleeding disorders ), Bhagna (fractures), Daha (heat), Asthikshaya( osteoporosis), Trishna( drying thirst), Amlapitta (hyperacidity), Pandu(anae­ mia), Jalodara (ascites), Vibandha (constipa­ tion) and Klaibya (impotency).

The ideal time for consumption of milk

  • Brihaniya ( promoting tissue growth), Agni dipak(improves digestion)
  • Bala agnivardhak( increase the strength & diges­ tion), Kapha Pitta nashak( balances the aggra­ vated Kapha & pitta)
  • Pathya(suitable & effective), tridoshshamak (balancing all three doshas) and Chakshushya (good for eyes)
