Kantakari comes from the word kanta meaning, 'thorns and throat,' and kari translates into that 'which promotes.' All the parts of the Kantakari plant contain vital active nutrients that support lung health. The popular Ayurvedic herb is used to clear the throat for a naturally soothing voice. It distributes life force in an upward and downward direction. Kantakari is part of a ten herbal roots group named Dasahamoola and Mahanarayan Oil used in Ayurveda.
Athreya Herbs methodically processes Kantakari to elevate its natural qualities and effects.
Kantakari Powder encourages respiratory health. Its nutritious properties help open the lungs and maintain a clear respiratory tract, including the nose, throat, and lungs. It supports the natural breakdown and elimination of the occasional buildup in the chest cavities for clear breathing. Furthermore, this supplement also encourages the body to retain healthy levels of moisture in the respiratory membranes. This, in turn, promotes clear and easy breathing. These actions aid the healthy and regular functioning of the respiratory system.
Additionally, the herb is beneficial for digestive health as well. It promotes a healthy Agni (digestive fire) and encourages natural levels of digestive juices in the stomach. As a result, it leads to easy digestion and metabolism. Both functions help Kantakari Powder to maintain a healthy GI tract.
The active tannins present in this plant help to tonify the Kidney function and promotes healthy precipitation of urine at a cellular level. This process in turn supports fluid metabolism.
This supplement promotes cardiac health by encouraging the regular functioning of the heart. It maintains healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels in the body. In addition to that, it supports optimal weight management as well when combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Therefore, all of this can further support a healthy heart.
Kantakari Powder maintains normal body temperatures for the wellbeing and regular functioning of the body. Pungent and bitter properties provide a natural boost to our immune health. This supports our natural body defenses to manage occasional external stressors. It promotes the regular functioning of the liver and spleen too.
Additionally, the supplement's light and dry qualities have a pacifying effect on the Kapha and Vata doshas for optimal respiratory health and overall wellbeing.
As a potent and effective herb, Athreya Herbs uses Kantakari Powder in other Ayurvedic supplements, such as herbal lehyams, grithams, powders, and capsules.
