Rooted in Ayurveda, Butterfly Ayurveda helps people live healthier lives and helps them integrate the understanding and use of Ayurveda in their day to day living. The company is known for its optimum quality of Ayurvedic products. Their products range from immunity boosting herbal teas, infusions, cookies and Ayurvedic medicines for specific ailments and also help with lifestyle-related disorders. All the products are backed with proper R&D and made at GMP certified units with quality raw materials sourced from vendors who directly deal with farmers working on sustainable models of farming.
In the wake of COVID-19, the organisation launched Balance, a platform where it offers free wellness webinars on Ayurveda, mental health, yoga by collaborating with renowned Ayurvedic doctors, nutritionists, clinical psychologists and other area experts.
Butterfly Ayurveda was founded by Akshi Khandelwal in 2014, who is a health enthusiast, a classical dancer and a martial arts student with a Master’s Degree in International & Development Economics from Yale University. Her inherent interest in Ayurveda led her to read many books on the subject and also apply, and practice Ayurvedic tips in her daily lifestyle, which allowed her to overcome a lot of her own health issues. As the CEO of the company she interacts rigorously with her R&D team to come up with effective and quality formulations and products that can seamlessly assimilate Ayurveda into the lives of all.
The core philosophy behind the development of Ayurvedic products is based on fundamental concepts of Ayurveda, i.e the balancing Tridoshas based on each individual's body constitution. “According to Ayurveda, when there is any sort of imbalance in the doshic constitution of a person, it results in a disease, even when it is a mild cough or cold. Butterfly Ayurveda’s products seek to help improve the balance of the doshas within the body. Our Ayurvedic formulations can help prevent and treat lifestyle-related disorders such as high cholesterol, weak immune system, respiratory issues and liver problems,” says Akshi.
Butterfly Ayurveda has an exotic range of herbal infusions like Heart Strong infusion and Love Your Body infusion that help with heart health and weight management. They have a unique range of aromatic Ayurvedic teas , and nutritious cookies that can easily be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle. Their Ayurvedic medicines are for respiratory health, all kinds of liver problems, pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes patients, constipation , arthritis , immunity and more. The company also developed a medicine Coronafly (of which they are in the process of changing the name to Covifly upon request by the State Dept. of Ayush) to help people cope with COVID-19 or any flu symptoms. This medicine can also be taken by asymptomatic patients.
During the winter season and with the ongoing pandemic it becomes really important to strengthen the immune system. Butterfly Ayurveda’s Bronchiofly, a sugar-free cough syrup , helps give relief to inflammation in the bronchioles, increases the immunity of the respiratory system and protects the lungs from any kinds of infections. Ayush Kwath is an Ayurvedic immunity enhancing formula created by the Ministry of AYUSH to boost the body’s immunity against all types of bacterial and viral infections. It is a wellness Kwath made using Tulsi, Dalchini, Sunthi and Kali Mirch that boosts respiratory health, helps with detoxification and also digestive health.
Some very sensitive groups during the pandemic are the diabetics and heart patients. For them, BA have Pancreofly capsules, polyherbal formulations developed using ayurvedic concepts and are clinically evaluated. They help moderate blood sugar levels and bring down hyperinsulinemia. “This Ayurvedic medicine is highly recommended for borderline cases of sugar patients with prediabetes as well as Type 2 diabetic patients. It has proven to show effective results when taken as a supplement with allopathic treatment, accompanied by the needful lifestyle changes. The best part about this medicine is that it helps normalise and restore kidney and liver functions,” explains Akshi. Butterfly Ayurveda’s Diabe Choice cookies are specially made for the diabetic and all those who want to keep their sugar levels under control. These cookies help boost bone health, benefit the nervous system and pacify Vata and Kapha Doshas.
Another very common problem which people face today is related to the liver. Ayurveda describes the liver as a fiery organ, where food is metabolised, and blood is purified. “If your liver is fit, then you can fight any disease,” says Akshi. Therefore, it is essential to keep a check on liver health. “Our Livofly syrup helps in treating all kinds of liver problems, improving digestion and all body metabolisms,” she adds.
In addition to this, Butterfly Ayurveda believes in transparency with their customers and therefore all the labels of their products specify the certifications they have received and ingredients used, making them a credible seller of Ayurvedic products around the world.
