Difference Between Ghanavati and Tablet in Ayurveda

Ghanavati vs Tablet in Ayurveda

Ayurveda, which is an ancient health system, has now become one of the most widely used healing systems in the world. Unlike allopathic treatment, Ayurveda tends to have fewer side effects and has a cure for most ailments. With people becoming more health conscious, Ayurveda is becoming more widely known and practiced and with the development of science, many changes have taken place in Ayurveda also.

Ayurveda medicines come in many forms like kashayam, churnams, ghanavati and tablet. Ghanavati and tablets differ in form and also in their preparation. The tablet is similar to the tablet form of Allopathic medicine whereas ghanavati comes in small pea shape. Ghanavati is also smaller than tablets.

There is also a difference in the way ghanavati and tablets are taken. Tablets have to be swallowed with a glass of water and are not chewed. Ghanavati, on the other hand, has to be chewed and not swallowed.

The method of preparation of ghanavati and tablet also differ. The herb used for making ghanavati is washed and then cooked in water about 16 times. The resulting solution is then sieved through a cloth and then brewed until it becomes thick. The thick solution is then dried in sunlight. The dried solution is then made into ghanavati.

In the preparation of tablets, the herbs are first soaked in water or alcohol. The solution is pressed under heavy pressures, which will separate the liquid that is left, after which, the tablet is prepared.
