Widely used in Ayurvedic medicine, Trikatu is a simple mixture of three pungent spices which stoke the "digestive fire" within the body necessary for the breakdown of food and absorption of nutrients.
Made up of equal measurements of Black Pepper, Long Pepper and Ginger, Trikatu is considered a "warming" blend, helping to stimulate enzymes in the stomach to aid the digestive process. Ancient healers also praised Trikatu for its ability to:
- Improve digestive strength
- Support healthy fat metabolism
- Relieve ama (toxins)
- Reduce bloating and gas
- Encourage liver health
Trikatu is also antiviral, antibacterial and contains natural anti-histamine which is thought to help prevent infection and inflammation. Studies have shown that Piperine, one of Triakatu’s active constituents, is thermogenic and increases bioavailability of other nutrients.
