Version 1.0 has around 900 ingredients and 1000 products. With a quick-access layout, vivid images and advanced search features, Dravya introduces the best of modern day technology to the brilliance of ancient healing sciences. Dravya can be used as a quick reference tool with detailed information on identification, properties, therapeutic uses and market availability of ingredients and products. Dravya has an online notification feature which will help in revising textual knowledge as well as receiving updates on news, events and product launches.
Dravya is more like a reference book. But with a repertoire of ever-expanding content and greater ease to look things up, it is a much smarter alternative. Plus, the subscription fee of the ‘Dravya-professional pack’ is only a fraction of the price of most books in this genre. Dravya bypasses all the hassles of having to carry bulky books around or to forage through unreliable websites or to memorize thousands of ingredients and formulations.
Dravya also supports name search in more than 20 Indian and international languages. The content is presented in simple English with Sanskrit or technical terms in parenthesis only. This will help anyone with a passion in this topic, in formulating home remedies, healthy recipes, diets and so on. For diet planners, Dravya has also included the nutritive values of a variety of culinary ingredients that can be sorted based on their nutritive content.
The most unique feature of Dravya is its Advanced Search feature. Even complex searches with multiple filters are possible. For example, you can do a specific search for a herb belonging to daśamūla, with sweet taste, cooling potency and pitta reducing capacity which may be given for bladder pain and burning sensation. Or you can search for a proprietary product which is in powder form, used for diabetes, made by a specific manufacturer. All you have to do is choose from the various drop-down buttons- no typing required!
Essential Pack and Professional Pack:
The ‘Essential Pack’ is for free. It will give you data regarding the identification and basic properties of ingredients. Data of all commercial products will be available on both versions.

Premium features like Advanced Search and High-res images and some of the core Ayurvedic content like Indications, Contraindications, Dose etc. are available only in the Professional Pack.
Dravya is an inevitable tool for anyone who likes to live as close to nature as possible. It will help you understand the food you eat and the Ayurvedic products you are having.
Dravya will invariably help you develop and maintain an Ayurvedic way of life.
Building Dravya was thorough fun and a great learning experience. We wish our users the very same.
