Saara( constitutional essence) is the essence of dhatus( vishuddhataro dhatu), which signifies the ultimate qualities of dhatus. Excellent functional aspects of the dhatus is defined as Saara. ( Chakrapani commentary on Ch.Vi.8\102-108). Eight types are explained by Acharya Charaka, each one characterized by both physical and psychological parameters. This review study mainly focuses on material available on dhatu saara in ayurvedic literature. Examination of saaratva indicates Bala of an individual. One cannot function without bala. Qualitative, quantitative and functional assessment of tissues or seven dhatus is called Dhatu Saarata. Charaka has advised to examine Saara of every dhatu to understand strength of Dhatus as well as strength of mind.
