AbstractImproper diet and unhealthy food regimens can cause Jataragnimandya (loss of appetite) which in turn produces Ama (intoxication). This can lead to mal-absorption of food materials and increase the Dravatwa (water content) lost by the body. Loss of fluids from the body can cause muscle cramps, headache, thirst, rapid heartbeats, sunken eyes and dry skin. Grahi (absorbent) is the property of the drug which promotes the power of absorption. Various drugs are mentioned in our classics with Grahi (absorbent)property. This is an attempt to find and analyse the Grahi (absorbent)Dravya (drugs) mentioned in Bhavaprakash Nighantu written by Bhavamishrawhich is one of the authentic texts inAyurveda.
