ayurvedic perspective

Pomegranate with Lime Juice & Aloe Vera is a cooling tonic to beat the summer heat for Pitta. Of the many types of acid reflux, Pomegranate with Lime Juice & Aloe Vera addresses nearly all of them. Aloe vera is a soothing, cooling and demulcent laxative that cleanses the GI tract and reduces inflammation. As a good cholagogue, Aloe vera reduces Pitta by supporting a weak gall bladder, fat digestion and cleansing of the liver.

Pomegranate is an astringent to bind loose summer stools and cool inflammation throughout the GI tract. Additionally, pomegranate cools and builds the blood while stimulating digestion. Lime juice stimulates digestive secretions while reducing hyperacidity, treating Vata, Pitta, and Kapha disorders. Kapha might optionally substitute cardamom for sugar for maximum stagnation clearing effect. For best results, drink one cup before meals up to three times a day at room temperature.

Hi Joseph, Sounds lovely. I have been soaking pomegranate seeds and adding the water to soups and dhals for the sour flavor and to help build rakta dhatu. Try it, it is an excellent way to enjoy food as medicine. *Jill

Can I substitute Agave nectar for the sugar? If so, how much?

Hi Joseph, I'm curious why aloe is contraindicated for Vata and not for Kapha, being a moistening demulcent?

In end, Aloe is a cleansing laxative. Although relatively tridoshic, it's clearing properties ultimately aggravate Vata. In small amounts it will be fine.
It would help if you can let us know where we can get the pomegranate juice. Would you please rate the one available at Trader Joe's?
