Trikatu means the Three Pungents and it is used to help maintain a healthy respiratory system. Ginger, Black Pepper and Long Pepper are mixed together to stimulate the system, warm the digestion and improve assimilation of nutrients. It is traditionally used for lung and nasal problems. It is specific for allergic rhinitis, hayfever and colds. It is used in Ayurveda as part of a weight loss regime to increase metabolism, digest fats and balance appetite. It is traditionally taken with honey. Use before meals as a deepaniya- a digestive stimulant and after meals as a pachaniya- as an aid to digestion. This is the main stimulant compound used in Ayurveda. Trikatu rejuvenates Agni, burns away Ama and allows for the assimilation of other medicines and foods. Ginger, Black Pepper and Long Pepper Ayurvedic Energetics: Specific for low Agni and high Ama, weak digestive fire and accumulation of toxins; reduces Kapha and Vata, increases Pitta. Trikatu is used mainly to control conditions in which kapha or ama obstructs Vata.

Trikatu is the spark that rekindles the embers of a weakened digestive system. The name Trikatu literally means three pungents and it refers to the three spices of which it is composed. These are Ginger, Black Pepper, and Indian Long Pepper, or Pippali. These three spices are the best stimulants to the digestive and metabolic functions of the body as they ignite the internal fire of the gastro-intestinal tract as well as many other tissues of the body. They help the digestive system in a variety of ways that encourage proper function and ease assimilation of medicines and nutrients, as well as being potent aids to the lungs and respiratory functions.

The central action of these three spices is heating. The hot energies of Trikatu benefit the stomach, liver, and intestines where heat is needed most to encourage the digestive fire. Through Trikatu's benefits to digestion it helps the body in many ways. First, they burn up ama, or accumulated toxins which can clog channels and retard digestion. Ama is the cause of many greater complications throughout the body. By destroying ama they help the body to properly assimilate food throughout the digestion process. This helps to reduce intestinal gas and abdominal pain which results from improper digestion. Trikatu benefits break down and digestion excess fats and mucous and helps the body utilize nutrients in their proper way. This has the effect of regularizing digestion and balancing the appetite. Consequently, Trikatu benefits those who wish to lose weight and is a fundamental ingredient in many Ayurvedic weight loss regimens.

However, the powerful cleansing benefits of Trikatu are not just limited to digestion but also act as a potent aid to the lungs and respiratory tract. Trikatu benefits the respiratory system because it dries up mucous and cleans the lungs and bronchial tube. Black pepper, in particular, is a great expectorant and taken with honey it heals respiratory tissue while it dries and expels mucous. Pippali aids in this action, but unlike Black Pepper it is actually rejuvenating to the lungs in addition to be cleansing. Trikatu works well to treat mucous buildup and blockage in the sinuses as well as the lungs. It strengthens weakened organic functions and acts as a general aid to respiration. It is an effective alleviator of the symptoms of hayfever, cough, and colds.

Trikatu is a versatile blend that can be taken in a number of different ways. It is traditionally taken with honey, as the warm energy of honey supports its activity while its moist and nourishing aspects provide additional support for damaged and weak tissues. With honey, Trikatu churna is good for both digestion and respiration. Trikatu churna can also be taken with milk as a special aid to respiration, where it is a great help to chronic and degenerative lung conditions like asthma. Furthermore, a very small amount mixed in Ghee and applied to the interior of the nasal passages is a powerful cleanser of the sinuses.

Trikatu is a powerful and safe blend of spices that has aided in digestion and respiration for thousands of years. Take a little before a meal to stimulate digestive juices, and a little afterwards to aid in digestion of the meal. Although it is safe and non-toxic, taking too much Trikatu can lead to pitta imbalance and hyper -acidity, and it should be used with respect.

About Gopala Ayurveda:


The Hindi meaning Gopala is 'The Nurturer of the Cow'. The cow is an auspicious blessing from Mother Earth for the good of all humankind. They who care for the blessings which our Mother has given us, care for the Mother herself. It is through this care that the bountiful provision which is our inheritance is enjoyed, preserved and multiplied for ourselves, our children and generations to come. This is our deepest desire and purpose: that all humanity may have life and have it more fully. Our name in every way reflects this desire and the means by which we propose to pursue it. It is for this reason that we use only 100% organically grown, harvested, and processed herbs in our products, support sustainable economics, and endeavor to continue the millennia old tradition of natural and holistic science.

The roots of Gopala Ayurveda reach deep into the rich and ancient naturopathic tradition of Ayurveda. Utilizing the wisdom of this four thousand year old science with the technological potential of modern science we render these ancient formulations in a potent form, all the while maintaining faithful adherence to the formulae and therapies of the ancient texts. To this end, we have spearheaded research to develop Ayurveda's vast herbal tradition into a comprehensive range of products to support healthiest and longest lives for our customers. These products have been met with warm reception in medical communities all over the world, and continue to serve the personal and healthcare needs of all parts of humanity.

Gopala is a pioneer in purely organic ayurvedic supplements, herbs, and oils. We promote healthy foods and nutritional products, and despite utilizing the benefits of modern science and technology, we train a strict eye on all stages of development and processing to be sure that our products do not suffer contact with any toxic or synthetic chemicals. Since the birth of this project, we have focused on the development of safe and effective remedies that will help people lead richer and healthier lives.

Gopala is not simply organic, which means to be free from any chemicals, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial additives, preservatives, and heavy metals, but we are 100% Certified Organic, meaning that the customer has the added security of the USDA regulatory action which requires that all ingredients in all products be traceable through their processing history and to the place of origin. Consequently, the consumer may know both exactly where and when each herb came from and the circumstances surrounding this journey to their hands. Gopala is unique in this regard. Other manufacturers, having claimed proprietary rights to ancient formulae have taken the liberties of enhancing these revered concoctions with preservatives, synthetic substitutes, and more. We, however, continue this venerable tradition as it has been maintained for thousands of years, in the sole interest of a whole and healthy life.

We at Gopala Ayurveda invite you to browse our website's many products and informative articles and Allow us to serve you and your community with the bounty of Mother Nature!
