Story of Arishtam

Fermentation is an art that predates civilization. Mead is older than huts made by primitive men. Farming was first undertaken to get a year-round supply of beer. Our Vedas are full of various recipes and insights of perfecting this art. Arishtam is a branch of Vedic Ayurveda that talks about using alcohol as a delivery vehicle for medicines and curing ailments. Arishtam is a natural solvent that readily absorbs. Hence it is able to extract the medicinal properties from herbs. Also the alcohol can mask tastes of the concoction much more effectively than boiled sugar syrup. This makes arishtam the preferred form of medication.
