Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. Take Nutrigain granules (Ashwagandha with Shatavari) one teaspoon two times a day with lukewarm milk and add a half teaspoon of Desi ghee or clarified butter in lukewarm milk. It will help you in gaining weight. Also, learn exercises which increase your muscular bulk. It helps to gain weight. Consult a nearby ayurveda physician after one month regarding improvement and for further management.
