“Gavyam pavitram ca rasayanam ca pathyam ca hrdyam balam buddhi syata
Aayuh pradam rakt vikar hari tridosh hridrog vishapaham syata”

Cow Urine (gomutra), is a natural antiseptic and in Ayurveda it is known as ‘Sanjivani’. It is an extremely potent medicine most effective in treating all kinds of infections especially those of the kidney and liver. Gomutra is able to cleanse the system of toxins and acts as an antidote that protects the body from various types of poison. When used as an eye drop, it is very effective in treating all manner of eye infections. Gomutra can also be used as an eco-friendly household disinfectant and natural insecticide.
The laboratory analysis of cow urine shows that it contains nitrogen, sulphur, phosphate, sodium, manganese, carbolic acid, iron, silicon, chlorine, magnesium, melci, citric, titric, succenic, calcium salts, Vitamin A, B, C, D, E, minerals, lactose, enzymes, creatinine, hormones and gold acids - all needed in smaller amounts by the human body to balance the “tridosha”- vata, pitta and Kapha. Our body contains many micronutrients that give us strength for life. Whenever we urinate, these micronutrients are flushed out of our body. Cow urine meets the deficiency of these micronutrients in the body. It maintains the balance of these substances in our body and cures even the so called incurable diseases.
