Benefits of Avipattikara Churna

What are the benefits of Avipattikara Churna for Indigestion?

ayurvedic
Ayurvedic View
According to Ayurveda, indigestion is termed as Agnimandya. This occurs due to an imbalance of Pitta dosha. Whenever the consumed food is left undigested due to Mand agni (low digestive fire), it results in the formation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion). This causes indigestion.
In simple words, we can say that indigestion is the state of an incomplete process of digestion of the ingested food.
Avipattikara Churna is considered as one of the most effective Ayurvedic Churna to manage indigestion. Taking Avipattikara Churna can help you manage the symptoms of indigestion due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestive) properties[1].
Tips:
1. Take 2-3 grams of Avipattikara Churna.
2. Swallow with water or buttermilk.
3. Repeat daily once or twice a day after meals until symptoms reduce.

What are the benefits of Avipattikara Churna for Constipation?

ayurvedic
Ayurvedic View
Constipation is that painful condition in which a person faces difficulty in emptying the bowels completely or passing out hard and dry stools.
According to Ayurveda constipation is caused due to an aggravation of Vata dosha. Consuming junk foods, excess intake of coffee or tea, sleeping late at night, high-stress level and depression are some of the factors that aggravate Vata dosha in the large intestine and cause constipation.
Due to the imbalance of Vata dosha, the intestines become dry due to Rooksha (dry) property of Vata dosha. This dries the Mala (stool), resulting in constipation.
Avipattikara Churna helps to reduce constipation due to its Rechana (laxative) and Vata balancing properties[1][2].
Tips:
1. Take 2-3 grams of Avipattikara Churna twice daily.
2. Swallow with lukewarm water.
3. Repeat twice daily and once the symptoms subside, you can take once daily.

What are the benefits of Avipattikara Churna for Acidity?

scientific
Scientific View
Acidity means an increased level of acid in the stomach. This happens when the food is left undigested or when Ama is formed inside the body which results in the aggravation of Pitta dosha. An aggravated Pitta impairs the digestive fire leading to improper digestion of food and production of Ama. This Ama gets accumulated in the digestive channels and causes hyperacidity. This also leads to the condition of burning sensation in the chest which is known as heartburn.
Avipattikara Churna reduces acidity due to it’s Rechana (laxative), and Pitta dosha balancing property. It works as a cooling agent by controlling the acid production inside the body[1][2].
Tips:
1. Take 1-2 grams of Avipattikara Churna on an empty stomach.
2. Swallow with cold water.
3. Repeat daily if your condition is chronic.

What are the benefits of Avipattikara Churna for Obesity?

scientific
Scientific View
Obesity is a condition in which indigestion leads to accumulation of Ama in the form of fat. This condition might sometimes even occur due to constipation which further leads to an imbalance of Meda dhatu resulting in obesity.
Avipattikara Churna can be taken as one of the supporting preparation in obesity. It helps to reduce fat accumulation because of its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestive) properties. It also helps to manage constipation due to its Rechana (laxative) property[1][2].
Tips:
1. Take 3-4 grams of Churna twice daily after meals.
2. Swallow with lukewarm water.
3. If you want to use it as a laxative then it is advisable to take once at bedtime.

What are the benefits of Avipattikara Churna for Piles?

scientific
Scientific View
Due to today’s sedentary lifestyle, piles have become a common problem. It occurs as a result of chronic constipation. This leads to the impairment of all the three doshas, and mainly Vata dosha. An aggravated Vata causes a low digestive fire, leading to persistent constipation. It might then further result in pain and swelling around the anal region if ignored or left untreated which further result in pile mass.
Consuming Avipattikara Churna will help reduce painful piles due to it’s pain relieving and Vata and Pitta dosha balancing properties. It also has Rechana (laxative) property and gives relief from constipation[1][2].
Tips:
1. Take 2-3 grams of Avipattikara Churna.
2. Swallow with lukewarm water.
3. Repeat twice daily for better results.

What are the benefits of Avipattikara Churna for Appetite stimulant?

scientific
Scientific View
Due to low digestive fire (Mand agni), the food consumed might not get digested properly, resulting in the formation of Ama. This might lead to anorexia or loss of appetite, also known as Aruchi in Ayurveda. It is a condition which results in the imbalance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha doshas. There are also some psychological factors that lead to incomplete digestion of food, causing insufficient secretion of gastric juice in the stomach, thereby resulting in loss of appetite.
Taking Avipattikara Churna regularly will help you digest the food by digesting the Ama due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties. It also helps in balancing all the three doshas i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha[1].
Tips:
1. Take 1-3 grams of Churna 1 hour before meals with lukewarm water.
2. Repeat twice daily for better results.

What are the benefits of Avipattikara Churna for Irritable bowel syndrome?

scientific
Scientific View
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is also known as Grahani. It is caused due to an imbalance of Pachak agni (digestive fire). This is followed by diarrhea, indigestion, stress and emotional problems.
This is another condition in which Ama is formed inside the body. As a result of which, mucus is often seen in motion. This undigested food may also result in frequent motion after meals, where stool consistency is sometimes loose and sometimes hard along with mucous.
Avipattikara Churna is generally given in IBS in order to digest Ama. It helps to digest the food due to its Deepan (appetizer), Pachan (digestion) and Rechana (laxative) properties[1].
Tips:
1. Take 2-3 grams of Churna with lukewarm water.
2. Repeat twice daily for better results.
