Jawarish is a form of Unani medication. It is a semisolid preparation. It is a type of Majun. However, the taste of Jawarish is better than that of Majun. Hence, most patients prefer to use Jawarish than Majun.
The consistency of Jawarish is waterier than Majun. It also acts slower because Jawarish powder is coarser than Majun. Sugar, which is one of the main ingredients of Jawarish medications, is responsible for the semisolid consistency of the final product.
The word, Jawarish, is of Arabic origin. The term is derived from the word, GAWARISH, which means digestive. Hence, the Jawarish forms of medications are usually prescribed for the treatment of digestive complaints. The popular medications of this form include Jawarish Jalinoos (Jawarish Jalinus) and Jawarish Kamuni.
