Trikatu Churna (Powder)
Trikatu translates as 'the three pungents' and is a classic ayurvedic formulation composed of Long Pepper, Black Pepper and Ginger that is traditionally used for treating digestive issues, respiratory problems, infections, cholesterol, obesity and metabolism. Ginger, Black Pepper and Long Pepper are mixed together in Trikatu to stimulate the digestive system, improve assimilation of nutrients, and reduce bloating.
Traditionally used as part of a weight loss regime to increase metabolism, digest fats and balance appetite, Trikatu is also a popular herbal remedy for lung and nasal discomfort, irritation and problems such as allergic rhinitis, hay fever and colds due to its potent anti-inflammatory properties. It is particularly soothing when mixed with honey and taken to alleviate any pain or uncomfortable feeling in the respiratory tract.
Directions for use:
1/2 teaspoon, twice daily with warm water & honey.
