Trikatu is the spark that rekindles the embers of a weakened digestive system. Trikatu literally means three spices which refers to the three spices of which it is composed. These are Ginger, Black Pepper, and Indian Long Pepper, or Pippali. These three spices are the best stimulants to metabolic functions and digestion in Ayurvedic medicine. Trikatu strengthens the digestive system in a variety of ways that encourage proper function and ease assimilation of medicines and nutrients, the central action of this ayurvedic formula is heating. Trikatu benefits the stomach, liver, and intestines with its hot energy where it is needed most in order to encourage the digestion.
