Even with a very healthy diet, you may find yourself in poor health due to poor digestion.
Tikshna Paka is a synergy of herbs that supports this digestion. It reduces kapha and vāta while stimulating pitta. The latter is the vehicle of agni, the digestive fire, responsible for metabolism. Āyurveda considers agni to be the guarantor of proper functioning of the digestive system and of health in general. Thus, Tikshna Paka is taken after meals to increase agni, the digestive fire.

Based on the principles of Ayurvedic herbalism or “Dravya Guṇa”, Tikshna Paka is a synergy of plants that promotes appetite and digestion. This mixture decreases Kapha and Vāta while stimulating Pitta dosha. Pitta is the vehicle of Agni: the digestive fire, responsible for metabolism.

According to Ayurveda our meal should always include the six tastes (sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent) and be eaten just after it was prepared. Chewing is of the utmost importance. Food is to be chewed thirty-two times before swallowing it …
Also, walking a “100 steps” after a meal helps digestion. After this short stroll, you may lie on your back for 8 breaths, then turn to your right side for 16 breaths, and to on your left for 32 breaths.
