Claiming to be ‘a unique compound with extra-ordinary rejuvenating powers’, this Ayurvedic remedy treated sexual disorders. The medication claimed to improve prowess, prevent premature ejaculation and increase vitality and stamina if taken as a seven day course, twice a year.

Ayurveda is a medical tradition. Its history reaches back over 2000 years. Its roots are in the Indian subcontinent. Imported goods such as this helped spread its influence to many parts of the world. This remedy was imported into the United Kingdom from India during the 1970s.
