We always tell you about the tips to lose weight, but some people are troubled by thinness and are looking for home remedies to gain weight. If you are also one of such people, then today we are telling you about an Ayurvedic recipe which can help you gain weight.

Are you struggling to put on weight despite long and hard efforts? Your body may not be able to absorb the nutrition from your food. But you need not worry as Ayurveda offers various natural remedies to strengthen your metabolism and enhance your body's ability to absorb nutrition.

It also emphasizes balancing agni to facilitate deep tissue nutrition for healthy weight gain. In Ayurveda, weight loss or weight gain is often associated with Vata-related disorders. Vata is dry and light and a Vata-predominant person shows similar physical characteristics.

Therefore, it is necessary to focus on pacifying the vitiated vatadosha, which can be accomplished by eating an oily, solid and stable diet.
