Edible Silver Leaf
Silver Leaf or Chandi Vark, consists of Pure Silver. Silver is edible, though flavourless. This edible leaf is called Chandi Vark in Hindi, sometimes also spelled as Chandi ka Vark, Chandi Varak, and Chandi Varakh. The tradition of decorating delicacies in Asia with Gold and Silver Vark originates from Ayurveda medicinal practices. Several ancient Sanskrit documents like Ayurveda and medical literature mentions about Swarna (Gold), Tara (Silver) or Rupera (Silver). As per the documents, the conversation is in three forms: Varaka (leaf), Patra (thin foil), and Bhasma (ash). As per Ayurveda, Gold is an aphrodisiac and Silver is an antimicrobial astringent. So, top Pharmaceutical Companies use Silver Leaves for the treatment of lots of health issues, particularly digestion. Therefore the estimated consumption of Pure Silver Vark in India is 275 tons annually. (according to BWC-Beauty without cruelty data)
