FAQ

What Does Ayurveda Say about the Benefits of Chitraka as a Supplement for Digestion & Gut Health?

In Ayurveda, Chitraka is popular for its warm potency and fiery quality. Its name literally means ‘the spotted one’, referring to the cheetah.

Like its namesake, this ayurvedic herb supports the healthy functioning of our vital digestive organs. 1, 2 Ayurvedic practitioners associate all health benefits of Chitraka with its warmness, dry quality, and pungent smell.

As an ayurvedic supplement, it promotes a healthy metabolism rate, while maintaining healthy cholesterol and lipid levels. It also supports the natural elimination of excessive ama (toxins) that accumulate inside the intestines. Additionally, its active micro ingredients help maintain healthy gut bacteria, stimulate normal assimilation, and support colon health.

All these qualities directly promote a healthy weight. You mainly manage it through regular use, balanced diet, and exercise.

Besides this, healthy metabolism is equally responsible for contributing to overall respiratory health. The warmth of Chitraka helps support the natural regulation of the menstrual rhythm.

Other than that, this ayurvedic supplement boosts our immune system by enriching our tissue metabolism and balancing the body fluid levels. These metabolic activities rejuvenate our stamina and vitality. It also supports healthy joints and mobility.

What’s more? Chitrak powder supports balancing our doshas due to its dry and light qualities. Its fiery potency stimulates our digestive fire, dries out excessive Kapha, and balances the Vata. All this helps support a healthy anti-inflammatory response against occasional stressors.

Athreya Herbs blend this powerful ayurvedic herb with other herbal powders. Our strategic infusion enhances the benefits of Chitraka and increases its effectiveness..

Which Natural Phytonutrients Are Found Inside Chitraka Powder?

Most of these active phytoconstituents promote a healthy anti-inflammatory response in the body and gut health. They also support digestive health and regulation of the menstrual cycle

Chitraka Plant Morphology/ What Does Chitraka Plant Look Like?

Chitraka (Plumbago zeylanica) grows primarily in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. Its native countries include India (i.e. Central and Southern India) and Australia, where the optimal climate allows it to thrive. This herbaceous plant grows all around the year.

Its standard height is 3-6 feet long, while the leaves are approximately 2-3 inches long and 1-1.5 inches wide. This plant’s leaves are dark green and ovate, with delicate white flowers sprouting from the stem.

Its root is light brown from the outside and fleshy white from the inside. Ayurvedic practitioners consider it the most potent part of this herbaceous plant.

Why Should You Choose Athreya Chitraka Powder as Supplement for Digestion?

Athreya Chitraka Powder is a premium ayurvedic supplement for digestion. It boosts your metabolism, promotes gut health, and supports the elimination of excessive toxins. Other benefits of Chitraka include gut and chest immune support, and it helps regulate the menstrual cycle. We grow its herbs in indigenous areas and optimal climates to ensure that they can retain potency and effectiveness of its active phytoconstituents.

How do we grow Chitraka?

We collaborate with organic farmers to cultivate the herbal ingredients. They follow our guided instructions to work according to substantial Ayurvedic practices. They do not use any toxic chemicals or pesticides during the harvest and processing period.

We harvest Chitraka from Central and Southern India, where the temperature gradient increases the herb’s potency. After harvest, we ensure that the roots of Chitraka are shade-dried to prevent direct exposure to sunlight, as it might alter the effectiveness of active principles. Our practitioners also immerse the roots in limestone water for 3-4 hours. Through this process, we prevent the herb’s strong penetrating influence to disturb the gut.

Our Ayurvedic experts (Vaidyas, traditionally trained in India) carefully curate herbal ingredients to formulate an all-natural blend that supports overall wellbeing. They do this by only choosing organically grown or ethically wildcrafted and active ingredients.

Even though we source these ingredients from India, we process the final products within the USA. Such careful sourcing increases the quality of the ingredients and the effectiveness of Chitraka Powder.

Our experienced professionals only use the purest natural form of whole herb product. We also ensure that there are no traces of any fillers, excipients, herbal extracts, binding agents, or added chemicals in the supplement. This allows us to provide you with whole foods and traditional Ayurveda products.

Besides this, all the supplements go through several quality assurance checks before shipment.

It’s only here that you’ll find ayurvedic supplementation that helps enrich your body with strength, vitality, and optimal health.
