Posted By JivaAyurveda on Jan 13, 2009 at 1:21AM

Properties of Ginger
Taste: Katu (pungent)
Quality: Ruksa (dry) and laghu (light)
Potency: Ushna (warm)
Post-digestive effect: Katu (pungent)

Medicinal Properties of Tulasyadi phanta:
The synonym of ginger is vishwabheshaja (vishwa means world, and bheshaja means medicine). Ginger helps to eliminate ama (or toxins) from the body, which is considered the prime cause of all diseases according to Ayurveda. It is very beneficial in poor appetite, low digestive fire, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, cough, and many other diseases.

Dosha Analysis:
Ginger slices play an active role in balancing kapha and vata dosha, and increasing pitta. This recipe is thus an excellent remedy for increasing digestive fire and appetite.
