Chawanprash is a traditional Indian health supplement that blends nutritious herbs and spices with amla , jaggery and desi organic ghee. The first mention of Chawanprash can be found in the legend of "Rishi Chavan" with the forest sages of Mahabharata and Puranas. After continued meditation, they became weak and debilitated. The twin brother of the God Ashwini Kumara and his royal physician prepared this herbal mixture for the improvement of the Rishi Chavan's strength and vitality.

The first recorded recipe for Chawanprash can be found in the ancient Ayurvedic text, Charak Samhita, where it is mentioned as a major healing tonic, superior to all other herbal medicine.
