Summary

Sweetened with sucralose and prepared with 52% amla, Mishry quite liked this sweet-sour-tasting Chyawanprash. The only drawback was the addition of preservative in Zandu Kesari Jivan Fit for Diabetic Chyawanprash.

Chyawanprash, the herbal jam, is known to improve health markers inside-out. From better digestion to stronger immunity, Chyawanprash is made with ghee, sugar, honey, amla, sesame oil, herbs, and spices.

However, the sugar content may do more harm than good for those with diabetes. Zandu’s Chyawanprash claims to be fit for diabetics. While we cannot corroborate the efficacy, here is Mishry’s Zandu Kesari Jivan Fit for Diabetic review.

Zandu’s Herbal Infusion is soothing!
