Balguti is a preparation made from Ayurvedic herbs. As with all such medications, there is a risk of side effects. Especially so with the self made version. For example, using too much of dried dates and almonds in your daily guti in an (misguided) effort to make your baby chubbier, can backfire. Both of these in excessive doses can be hard for your baby to digest. Thus giving side effects such as constipation and stomach ache. Giving the doses in correct dosages and with the correct herbs has less risks of side effects.Balguti is an Ayurvedic science that has stood the tests of time and generations. Like with all medications, formal or otherwise, the risks of side effects are always there. You should use balguti only if you are comfortable giving it and if your baby tolerates it well.
