Every liquaid eg- madhu, ghee, etc. which are taken with drug or food or after drug or food intake are called anupana.

In ayurveda acharyas  mentioned anupana as a part of deep knowledge of ancient medical science present with certain theories. Anupana have some specific characters like –

1. just opposite nature to food – ex: – hot nature anupana after cold nature food intake.
2. not opposite to dhatus – ex: – curd after milk
3. just opposite to dosas – ex: – in case of kaphaj disease we should take hot anupana.
4. same nature to medicine – ex: – cold anupana after pitta shamak medicine
5. dependable upon disease and time – ex: – in primary case of fever we should take usnodak (samehot water). or liquor is good in vat rogas in winter season but not in summer.

If we take anupana before food it creates weakness, in the middle of food it does not creates weakness or heaviness and if we take after food it creates heaviness in the body. So we can take anupana according to our requirements.
