Abstract

Ayurveda, a system of medical science based on experience of many centuries of medical practice. Ayurvedic  acharyas had acknowledged and documented various information and theories through their insight perception. The basic concepts of Ayurveda need to be explained and proved in terms of modern knowledge. In Ayurveda ahara has the greatest importance among three upasthambhas i.e. ahara, nidra and bramhacharya. The physical as well as mental health depends upon the type of ahara taken and metabolic transformation of ahara and their uptake by different cells, as per classical texts  this concept is known as  dhatu-poshana nyaya. This review enlightens future research and scientific approach of Ayurveda in the context of Dhatu Poshna Nyaya (metabolic transformation and movement of substances through cell membrane).
