Pitta dosha is one of the three mind/body types in the ancient healing system of Ayurveda. It is characterized primarily by its predominant element – fire. Firey, pitta-type individuals often experience imbalances related to an excess of heat in the body. This may manifest in a wide variety of inflammatory disorders, skin rashes, migraine headaches, heated emotions, anger, irritability and criticism. Rasayanas are Ayurveda’s rejuvenating formulas. Pitta Rasayana and its blend of cooling herbs is formulated specifically to restore balance when the qualities of pitta have been aggravated. It reduces pitta-type inflammation, softens the sharp pitta emotions and gently restores balance.
The prefered method for taking this remedy is to add a half teaspoon of the powder to 8 oz. of milk or milk substitute. Heat on stove top until just hot, then remove from heat and add 1 tsp. organic cane sugar. Both the milk and the cane sugar are helpful to the formula as a whole as both these substances are also cooling in nature. Optional- add 1/2 tsp ghee. Alternately, add 1/2 tsp to Pomegranate juice. When taken at the recommended dose this jar has a fifty day supply.
