Use of Raisins in Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, raisins are considered to have great medicinal value. They are beneficial for lungs, brain, throat, bowel and the womb. People who have weak respiratory system can benefit greatly from regular consumption of raisins.

It also sharpens the brain and help in balancing emotions. If someone feels too thirsty, he may try out raisins. Taken with milk or water, raisins provide relief from excessive thirst.

Those suffering from constipation should try out raisins soaked overnight. Taken with a combination of cool water and milk it helps in regulating the bowel movement especially in the morning hours.

They are also beneficial for women who want to conceive, as they are known to have the potential of increasing the natural fertility.

According to Ayurveda, raisins are 'cool' for the human body. However one should consume them in moderation, as they are not 'light' enough. In addition, their glycemic index is quite high. However, the glycemic index can be reduced by mixing them with spices such as cardamom and cinnamon.

Raisins are helpful in restoring the "Vata" and 'Pitta" balance whereas it could actually aggravate the "Kapha" imbalance. They restore Vata imbalance by regulating various abdominal activities.

The "Pitta" imbalance can be restored by eating raisins soaked overnight are eaten in the morning. It not only improves the digestive function but also pacifies the mind and induces emotional balance.

Raisins are also recommended in Ayurveda for protecting the skin from damage by sunlight. As raisins are heavy as well as sweet in nature, they tend to aggravate the "Kapha" imbalance. For treating problems related to "Pitta", Ayurevda suggests that they should be mixed with cardamom or cinnamon.

In case of some particular diseases, an exclusive diet of raisins may be recommended. One must remember here that raisins have eight times more sweetness than grapes. Due to high sugar content they are also known to be a high source of energy.
