Trikatu, made from Long Pepper, Ginger and Black Pepper, is traditionally used to support digestion and the overall gastric function. It stimulates digestive enzymes and promotes rapid absorption of nutrients, while optimizing metabolic function. Trikatu's pungent qualities clear excess mucus from the body, which aids digestion and supports respiratory function.
One of the reasons that Ayurveda developed was to take great care of royalty, so the science of creating antidotes to poisons arose in order to counter the guile of assassination attempts. Trikatu is one of the formulas used to “digest” toxins and poisons, not to mention meals. Modern science has confirmed that antioxidants are the typically the best way to neutralize poisons and that Trikatu is burgeoning with potent ones.
Also realize that high quality tissue can arise only from high quality food offered to a high quality digestive process. Trikatu, with Turmeric and Tulsi-Holy Basil, is one of your best allies to attain your optimal weight and state of fitness.
