Ghee and Ayurved
Ayurveda considers pure un-adulterated ghee to be sattvik or sattva-guni (in the "mode of goodness"), when used as food. It is the main ingredient in some of the Ayurvedic medicines. Ghee is used preferentially for diseases caused by Pitta Dosha. Many Ayurvedic formulations contain ghee. Though eight types of ghee are mentioned in Ayurvedic classics, ghee made of human breast milk and cow's ghee are claimed to be excellent among them. Further, cow's ghee has medhya (intellect promoting) and rasayana (vitalizing) properties. Ghee is also used in Ayurvedas for constipation and ulcers. Vechur cow Ghee produced using Vechur cow's milk, is famous for its high medicinal values due to the presence of A2 beta-lactalbumin protein and higher arginine content which is good for the health of convalescing people.
