Ancient Ayurvedic scholars vividly described the concepts and procedure of Rejuvenation for every body, aiming at providing happy and disease-free long life. The aim of Rasayana is to replenish Rasa - vital fluids of the body and thereby provide long life (Deerghayu), heightened memory and intelligence (smriti & medha), maintenance of youthfulness (vayasthapan) etc. Rasayana is applicable to both, young and aged. Rasayana is a strong area of Ayurveda, which needs to be highlighted and disseminated in the masses. .
Every therapy, behaviour and conduct that is connected to promote healthy living and longevity is named as rasaYana.
The effects of Rasayana can better be appreciated °when the body is in the stage of deterioration which may occur in diseases states or old age.
Different theories have been postulated regarding the causes of aging. The stress and strain, some have considered as the reasons for premature old age due to modern life styles and fast life. These conditions of premature old age can possibly be tackled by Rasayana therapy of Ayurveda. In the case of normal aging also the physiological deterioration of tissues and mental faculties as well as other age related health problems can be retarded with use of specific Rasayanas.
