What Does Ayurveda Say about Kutki?

Kutki (or KATUKI in Ayurveda) is derived from the word katu. The literal meaning of this term is pungency with bitterness.

Traditionally, the ayurvedic herb appears in ancient formulas as a supplement for liver support and the gallbladder. It also helps the body boost immunity, healthy digestion, and support optimal respiratory health.

The contrasting combination of the bitterness and pungency of the herbs makes it unique. Due to this, it is labeled as ‘Dhanvantarigrasta’ and the ‘healing herb held supreme by the lord of healing’, since it was revered by Dhanvantari (Lord Ayurveda).

Even in small amounts, the effects of Katuki promotes overall health by removal of toxins. This contributes in effective cleansing of small and large body channels.

Apart from ayurvedic scriptures, medical science is also interested in the many properties of the ancient herb. Some studies suggest that it is one of the best herbs to maintain proper functioning of the liver. 2,3 The pungent qualities maintain healthy blood circulation while the bitterness balances the body toxins by supporting detoxification.

This, in turn, helps support liver and gallbladder functions along with providing gut-immune support.The effective elimination of toxins maintains a healthy immune system and the skin.5 It helps the body rejuvenate the skin cells by helping the body to eliminate free radicals. Also, Kutki aids healthy fat metabolism and supports the conversion of glucose into glycogen. Its dryness and pungency support the downward flow of Pitta and Kapha while maintaining the intestinal functions.

What’s more?

Of the three doshas Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, kutki has a cooling effect on Pitta. It helps the body soothe its heat and promote good gut health.

Overall, Kutiki contains multiple properties that make it the best herb supplementation for liver support and liver care. Many Ayurvedic formulas back this by including Kutki in tonics and extracts made for liver supplementation.

Athreya also uses Kutki, with other natural ingredients to formal herbal capsules.

It makes it a great source of liver support supplements.

Kutki Plant Morphology / What Does the Kutki Plant Look Like?

Kutki (Picrorhiza kurroa) is part of the Scrophulariaceae. It is commonly found in the Himalayan region at an altitude of 3000-5000 m.

This herb grows in rough terrain and bitterly cold air. The harsh topographical environment is partly responsible for its strength as a liver supplement.

In appearance, it is spiky with 5-15 cm long leaves and a dry winged stalk. The plant grows small flowers that appear in purple and blue hues with long flowering stems. The herb’s rhizomes have a wood-like texture. They are 15-25 cm long, and these roots are what most Ayurvedic practitioners use for medicinal purposes.
