Ayurvedic texts described the digestive system as a fire whose responsibility was to transform energy into our own life-force. When we overindulge with food, we can dampen that fire, leaving behind smoldering flames in the form of gas, bloating and occasional heartburn.*
To this end, Ayurveda guides us to what is now famously called Trikatu, or three pungents. Comprised of Ginger and two species of Pepper fruit, Trikatu primes the stomach and tones the mucosal lining to safely digest food and assist in the assimilation of nutrients.*
Take it after your meal or snack. 20 minutes is a good rule of thumb.
We can only recommend the dose on the bottle, which is our clinically-studied effective dose. Taking more or less of an herbal supplement than recommended should be discussed with your health care provider.
Our product has not been studied alongside or against your prescription medication or alongside other supplements. We would be unable to answer that question. Please make sure your health care provider is aware of all the herbal supplements you are taking.
Regulations enacted by the United States Food and Drug Administration say that sellers of dietary supplements can’t make any claims about their products that suggest the treatment, diagnosis, prevention, or mitigation of disease. This is called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994. Because your question suggests you are trying to treat a condition and find relief from symptoms, any answer to that regard would fall outside of the legal boundaries that regulate our industry. What we can say is that our products are formulated to support the normal function of organ systems and are rigorously studied for purity, safety and efficacy.
We don’t recommend any herbal product, ours or anyone else’s, to pregnant or nursing moms. If you’re pregnant or nursing, any supplement you take should first be cleared with your health care provider.
