Awaken agni (digestive fire) and eradicate congestion from the digestive tract with this revered herb. Considered the ‘universal medicine’ in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, ginger powder has light, hot, dry and pungent qualities making it the perfect herbal remedy for the heavy, cold, moist and dense qualities that can weigh down kapha type digestion.
Powerfully stimulating and warming, pippali, a close relative to black pepper, is an excellent herbal ally that can be used to stoke agni and burn up toxic residue (ama) left behind from slow, sluggish digestion. Pippali is classically paired in Ayurvedic medicine with ginger and black pepper to address kapha type digestive ailments.
The Sanskrit name for black pepper is marich, which is a term for the sun. This is the perfect way to describe the heating, stimulating and activating energetic properties of black pepper on the physical body and the mind. In the digestive system, black pepper is used in Ayurveda to enkindle and strengthen agni, expel toxic debris (ama) and improve the absorption and assimilation of nutrients from food.
In herbalism, cinnamon is known as a warming circulatory stimulant, meaning it works to improve movement and circulation within the body, including within the digestive tract. When agni is low and mucus + congestion begin to accumulate in the stomach due to an increase in kapha dosha, cinnamon can help regulate healthy flow within the GI tract, in turn optimizing healthy and balanced digestion.

A digestive churna is a blend of powdered dipanas, or digestive herbs, mixed with warm water. Ayurveda recommends consuming a digestive churna 30 minutes prior to each meal in order to awaken jatharagni (also known as agni or the digestive fire) & kickstart the process of healthy digestion. Dipanas may also be added to your diet by incorporating them into your cooking or even by simply sprinkling them on top of your meal before eating. Thus, we would like to encourage you to get creative in the kitchen & use our dosha-specific Spice Blends not only as digestive churnas, but also as your go-to all-purpose spice blend to use while preparing your favorite meals & snacks.
