What Does Ayurveda Say About the Benefits of Sitopaladi Powder for Lung Support?
We often refer to Sitopaladi powder (or Sitopaladi Churna) as ‘rock candy’ due to its sweet and spicy flavor and lozenges like taste. Unlike ordinary lozenges, this delicious supplement is a powerful Ayurvedic formula. It contains five potent herbs (i.e. sitopala, vamshalochana, pippali, ela and twak ). Their synergetic action leads to multiple health benefits.
There are several benefits of Sitopaladi powder. It nourishes lung tissues to provide lung support and healthy respiration. Additionally, it may help promote normal lung movements, supports the air passages and pulmonary performance.2 Likewise, Sitopaladi lubricates passageways to maintain moist Vata. It also soothes Pitta by encouraging healthy elimination of Ama (toxins) that cause occasional irritation.
Sitopaladi powder’s support to the immune system is due to the presence of long pepper and cinnamon, these two powerful herbs function as bio-enhancers for better bioavailability. Additionally, cardamom helps with a healthy inflammatory response.
Moreover, the combination of Pippali, Ela, and Twak is meant to support healthy digestion and metabolism so that one can harvest good prana from the food. When the prana from the food and prana from the breath are properly distributed throughout the body, it helps boost energy levels. Lastly, the presence of bamboo helps stimulate the body’s natural adaptation to seasonal stressors.
Overall, the warm potency of this synergistic herbal blend supports the natural balance of the dry quality of Vata, heating quality of Pitta Dosha and re-establish the moistening quality of Kapha, this helps provide you with optimal health and well-being.
