Roots of the root
Safed Musli has been associated with 'CAITHA' in the ATHARVA VEDA as one of the divine herbs, offering cure for many ailments and health related problems.
As per the SRIMAD BHAHWAT (Hindi Epic), about 4000 years ago Ashwini Kumars, the divine physician brothers, prepared the CHYAWANPRASH for CHYAVAN RISHI who married at the age of 80 years. Safed Musli was one of the important contents of this CHYAWANPRASH.
The origin of Safed Musli can be traced back in the oldest mountain ranges on the continent, the ARAVALIS from where it spread to the near-by areas of the sub-continent, presently known as the states of Gujrat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and the Central Deccan Plateau.
