Ageing is a process of unfavourable progressive changes associated with decline in vigour affecting the quality of life. It tends to vary in different age groups by genetic factors, dietary habits, socioeconomic conditions, life style, occurrence of diseases etc. Active ageing involves every dimension of one«SQ»s life: Physical, mental, social & spiritual and major challenge is to understand & promote the factors that keep people healthy as they grow older. In Ayurveda, decade wise ageing process has been described. It has two types: Kalaja jara (Timely ageing), which may be delayed by appropriate measure & Akalaja jara (Premature ageing), which is somewhat reversible by Rasayana therapy. The present study deals with efficacy of Bhringarajadi Ghrita Rasayana (Eclipta alba, Sesamum orientale Linn., Embellica officinalis Gaertn., Sugar, Cow«SQ»s ghee), which has shown significant improvement on various clinical parameters related to premature ageing since ingredients of this formulation have proven adaptogenic, antioxidant, free radical scavenger, immunomodulator properties.
