In Veda, the products of cow have been compared with the nectar (Rig-Veda 10.15 pp. 47). In Ayurveda cow’s urine is one of the ingredients of Panchagavya. According to Susruthi, cow’s urine has several medicinal properties. Its properties are also described by Charak (Solka-100) in his work Charaka Samhitha. Cow’s urine is extensively used in Ayurveda for purifying certain materials which otherwise possess toxic properties.
Cow Urine or distilled cow urine called Gow Ark is used in Ayurveda for oral ingestion to improve the general health and to control and cure over 100 diseases and disorders such as blood pressure, cancer (especially in Stage I and II of Cancer), constipation, stomach disorders, diabetes, obesity, skin diseases such as leucoderma and utricaria (skin rashes), breast diseases, female diseases and disorders such as white discharge and blood discharge, gray hair, heart diseases, insanity, infant diseases, jaundice, leprosy, liver enlargement, loss of memory, nerves debility, piles, paralysis, rheumatism, ring worm, sun stroke, sex debility, syphilis, tuberculosis, urinary diseases, etc.
Distilled and sterile cow urine mixed with water and herbs like brahmi and basil has excellent medicinal properties. Ark has been found to be useful against flu viruses.
Bharatiya Go: jati cows have Suryakethu Nadi (a nerve) and also a hump, called mokuram in Telugu, on their backbone which receive the Sun light and make gold salts which comes in the blood, milk and urine. This gold gives tejas (brightness) to us when we drink cow milk and urine on a regular basis. However, Jersey & Holstein Frischian & other Swiss breed cows do not have Suryakethu nadi on their backbones and also they have the genes of pig in them and their urine is not used to make Go: Ark (distilled cow urine) and their milk is classified as Type A1 milk which is considered not good for health even by Western scientists and may sometimes cause diseases like Tuberculosis.
Cow urine contains several minerals/nutrients, aminoacids, vitamins, enzymes, and other such useful things in it as seen in the table below and therefore it is compared with nectar for its nutritional value which is also the reason for its medical properties to cure diseases.
