Precautions To Be Taken

There are certain points to be noted if you are giving udayaditya ras to anybody, so keep noted the below points:

  • Due to the potency of udayaditya ras it causes a boil at the place of skin disease.
  • There is a presence of dosha (which get vitiated) and dushya (which get vitiated with dosha) are present in the form of water which is eliminated after the bursting of the boil with which the disease gets alleviated.
  • After the formation of these boils there is a very severe burning sensation and itching occurs in it, the patient is unable to tolerate it.
  • So I must advise you to apply the above mentioned herbs in the indications for providing the calming effect.
  • Keep in mind to give this preparation to the one who is able to tolerate all things occurring after eruptions.
  • It is mandatory to give this course preparation for 3-7 days and only for 1 time a day.
  • After the formation of boils it is necessary to stop the intake of udayaditya ras.

Effectiveness Of Udayaditya Ras In Combination With Other Ayurvedic Formulations Or Adjuvant

Effectiveness with various ayurvedic formulations

Following are some of the Ayurvedic formulations that change the effectiveness of the udayaditya ras

  1. Gandhak Rasayan: There are a lot of skin health issues that are autoimmune in nature such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc. So in these skin health conditions there is a need for any of the immunity boosting remedies along with rejuvenating properties. So that need is fulfilled with gandhak rasayana and it gives very good results in alleviating such conditions. So the effectiveness of udayaditya ras while giving along with gandhak rasayan increases in the autoimmune health conditions.
  2. Mahamanjishthadi Kwath: This herbal formulation is available in syrup form and it is one of the best blood purifying remedies used since ancient times for maintaining overall skin health. As udayaditya ras has properties of eliminating pitta dosha from the body by taking mahamanjishthadi kwath along with it make it more effective. The effectiveness of udayaditya ras with mahamanjishthadi kwath increases as it purifies the blood and has pitta dosha pacifying properties. So both these formulations can be given in the patients of skin conditions associated with pitta and rakta dosha vikriti.
  3. Chandanadi Vati: Chandanadi vati is one of the best ayurvedic formulations that is used for diuretic properties since ancient times. Chandanadi is mainly effective in the skin conditions associated with diabetes. As in case of diabetes there is the formation of diabetic carbuncles which is tridoshaj in nature. So chandanadi vati aids in reducing the blood sugar levels and udayaditya effectively corrects the skin carbuncles, that's how both these work.
  4. Dashang Lep: Dashang lep is one of the best remedies for skin health concerns for external usage. As we read earlier with the use of udayaditya ras there is a formation of boils on the skin which has severe itching and a severe burning sensation. For relieving such symptoms we can give dashang lep for local application with the administration of udayaditya ras.

Effectiveness with An adjuvant - Coconut water

Before studying the effectiveness of udayaditya ras with coconut water let us first study the properties of coconut water. Coconut water has a sweet taste, cold potency and it is heavy to digest. It is one of the best diuretic and digestive stimulants. Coconut water in its tender form has effective pitta pacifying properties that provide a soothing effect to the body. And the coconut water in ripened form increases pitta dosha in the body which is not good for digestive health. So it is must to remember that one must consume tender coconut water as an adjuvant of udayaditya ras. Now let us see what are the benefits of taking udayaditya ras with coconut water. As we read coconut water consists of a cooling effect with pitta pacifying properties and when we administer udayaditya ras it causes excessive increase in pitta dosha. So to slightly compensate for the heat increasing effect of udayaditya ras and to alleviate symptoms like severe itching and burning sensation no other adjuvant is better than coconut water.


Udayaditya ras is a formulation which is mentioned in Ayurved sar sangrah that is mainly prepared for maintaining skin health. Skin health is very important as skin is the only organ which protects our whole body from the external environment. Many of the people suffer from various skin conditions every year and need a solution. For that purpose consumption of udayaditya ras under the strict guidance of Ayurveda practitioners is one of the best remedies. In this article the method of administration is mentioned and how udayaditya ras is effective with the combination of various ayurvedic formulations and adjuvant is also mentioned.
