Its emergence tale is quite popular in purans; two sages Ashwini Kumar brothers (twins) who were the Ayurvedic Doctors to the devas and kings invented this formula for rishi chyawan to restore youth to the old sage. Thus, the life tonic was named as Chyawanprash. Here ‘Prash’ means ‘food’ in Sanskrit. Its first documented formula comes out in Charak Samhita, an ancient Ayurvedic piece.
