AYURVEDIC HERB SUPPLEMENTS

Bibhitaki HERBAL POWDER (TERMINALIA BELLIRICA)

Dry, light, clearing herb that reduces stagnation. Respiratory decongestant and laxative.

How Does This Ayurvedic Herb Supplement Improve Wellness?

CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW

Dry, light, clearing herb that reduces stagnation. Clears, decongests, and tones mucus membranes of the respiratory tract and upper body. Relaxes the nervous system. Use with honey for sore throats. Of 22 students, 10 reported less congestion (12 reported no change).

It is a rasayana for Kapha. Although hot, it does not aggravate Pitta due to astringency. Bibhitaki is energizing. In a 2021 study at Joyful Belly involving 22 students, 11 reported more energy while on 3 reported less. 8 reported no change.

Effects on Nervous System

Bibhitaki's warmth, nervine and nerve nourishing effects rise to the head, creating a relaxing effect, "I felt a relaxing warmth in the front lobe." Bibhitaki is thus one of the few kapha pacifying herbs that are good for insomnia. Let's recall that Bibhitaki's name means the fruit that takes away the fear. One student notes, "My shoulder muscles felt more relaxed. My eyes felt really pleasant and smooth.

Effects on Digestion

Bibhitaki sped up digestion in 8 students. 3 students experienced slower digestion, possibly due to its slightly irritating effect. Astringent & stimulating laxative that also tones mucosa of the digestive and urinary tract.

Bibhitaki is one of the 3 herbs in triphala. Its drying, clearing, and stimulating nature are some of the reasons triphala may irritate Vata individuals. 11 students notices Bibhitaki increased the size and length of cracks on their tongue, with only 1 students reporting cracks were smaller (10 reported no change). 12 students reported their skin was dry (9 reported no change).

One student notes, "My stomach immediately began to gurgle. Late, the gentle rhythmic moving in my abdomen indicated peristalsis. The next morning, elimination was voluminious and darker in color. Now I have a flat stomach with no gas or bloating."

INCREASES
Guna Help

Increases These Biocharacteristics (Gunas)

Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main biocharacteristics (gunas). Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance. By knowing which characteristics are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick. Every characteristic has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold). You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite characteristic.

TASTES
Taste Help

The 6 Tastes

Taste is used to sense the most basic properties and effects of food. Each taste has a specific medicinal effect on your body. Cravings for food with certain tastes indicate your body is craving specific medicinal results from food. Taste is experienced on the tongue and represents your body's reaction to foods. Sweet taste causes physical satisfaction and attraction whereas bitter taste causes discomfort and aversion. Kapha should use less sweet taste while Vata and Pitta would benefit from using more sweet taste. One of the first signs of illness is that your taste and appetite for food changes. The six tastes are sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent. Do you crave foods with any of the tastes below?

DOSHAS
Dosha Help

The Three Doshas / Body Types

According to the biocharacteristic theory of medicine, people tend to get sick, over and over again, due to habitual causes and imbalances that are unique to the person. Your body type summarizes this tendency, showing you the 'type' of conditions and imbalances that frequently challenge your health & wellness. Using body type, you can also identify remedies likely to improve your strength and resiliency. Your body type identifies physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses. The calculation of your body type is based on your medical history.

The 3 functional body types (doshas), are Catabolic (Vata), Metabolic (Pitta), and Anabolic (Kapha). Catabolic individuals tend to break down body mass into energy. They are easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry. Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy. They tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed. Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass. If they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion. Anabolic people tend to be stable and grounded.
