Why will you love Trikatu?
Trikatu is a Sanskrit word meaning three spices or three pungents. Trikatu is a unique Ayurvedic blend of equal parts of the fruits of Black Pepper, Long Pepper and the dried Ginger. The powerful warming quality of these herbs boosts the digestive fire primarily in the upper GI tract that is needed for absorbing nutrients and breaking down food. Long pepper in this blend assists in rejuvenating the digestive system as does ginger, while the black pepper helps in removal of toxins. Due to its carminative and digestive effect, it stimulates the liver. It burns accumulated fat by supporting the fat metabolism in the body. These herbs even stimulate the circulation and promote the body’s natural immune response. Trikatu helps to balance healthy cholesterol in the body by activating liver function. It also helps in expelling mucus due to Kapha, supporting healthy lungs and clear breathing. Trikatu balances Vata and Kapha doshas.
Athreya’s Trikatu is also available in the powder form. This herbal combination when used along with other herbs, enhances the bioavailability of active constituents of the co-herbs. Athreya also uses Trikatu with other herbs in the form capsules
Why choose Athreya Trikatu Capsules?
Athreya’s Trikatu capsule contains black pepper which is stone grinded. While six month age old long pepper is used in Trikatu after harvesting as newly harvested pippali can disturb the balance of Pitta dosha and blood.
