Suvarnaprashana is one of the sixteen Samskaras (rituals) which were described in ancient scriptures. The modern days have left human beings amidst a lot of stress, the altered food habits, a great deal of distractibility, addiction, varied agricultural practices which in turn affect the strength of individuals both physically and mentally, this makes the humanity to fall prey of diseases. In the ever demanding competitive age of today there is always need to excel. This in turn requires best of health and intelligence. Ayurveda has explained such health promoting agents under the heading of Rasayana. Suvarnaprashana is such Rasayana mentioned in Ayurveda to promote immunity and memory of children. Ayurveda is known for its own specialties. Today the whole world is affected with different diseases. Ayurveda explains suvarnaprashan while modern medicines explains about vaccines. Vaccines produce immunity against specific diseases where as suvarnprashan produces non-specific immunity along with many beneficial effects. Administration of processed gold in children is a unique practice mentioned in Ayurveda as “Swarnaprashana” by Acharya Kashyapa thousands of years back. He explained evidently the administration of Swarna (gold) in children for the benefits of improving intellect, digestion and metabolism, physical strength, immunity, complexion, fertility, and life span. There are various formulations of gold and even along with herbal drugs explained by different Acharya for prolonged usage in children. Swarnaprashana in children can be mainly implicated in two contexts of Ayurveda; Lehana (supplementary feeds) and Jatakarma Samskara (newborn care). This review is an effort to critically evaluate the available data, which may be helpful in clearing some of the existing fallacies on the topic. The age and method of administration, benefits and dosage as per various classical textbooks of Ayurveda are discussed here along with the reports of related scientific studies. This review proposes that the benefits of Swarnaprashana can be achieved at multiple levels like as a general health promoter and in specific to enhancement of intelligence, digestion, metabolism, immunity, physical strength, complexion, or fertility. Ayurveda recommends only purified and processed form of gold for internal administration. The age at which Swarnaprashana should be administered and its duration can be determined depending upon the desired effect in children as a positive health care program.
