    if the powder of turmeric and mustard settles in the bottles can it be re-used for another batch?

    Ans – No.

  2. Meenal Desai says:

    How long we can store GAUTAKRASAV ? Does it require refrigeration for storage?

    Ans – If prepared with extreme care of cleanliness we can keep it till 6 months. I recommend to be extra safe to keep and use till only a month or two. Basically when it will get spoiled you will get a bad odour and then it should be discarded. No refrigeration required till this time.

  3. Meenal Desai says:

    Can we store it in food quality plastic bottels as we want to provide it our volunteers staying at distant places.

    Ans – Technically yes. But as we are on green line we should try avoid plastic in our usage as much as possible. Here you can use glass bottles with good packing. Glass bottles are cheaper than plastic. Plastic is well know to release carcinogens. Better to stay away from plastic in all walks of life as much as possible.

    Can you give some scientific base on Gautakrasav on how it is useful for piles patients? What makes it cure all diseases of stomach, loss of appetite. How it is beneficial for liver and spleen and constipation. Please give some details.

    Ans – I have to still write about Basic and simple understanding of Vata, pitta and Kapha for common lay man. Then it will be all clear. Still Gautakrasava helps in pitta dosha and all the diseases above mentioned are related to pitta. Liver and spleen are also organs whose majority diseases are pitta based.
