You are what you can Digest!!! Sharing my fav nuskha to help you digest your food better. A sliver of fresh ginger + teeny bit of rock salt. Eat this before any meal to get more digestive juices flowing. Yes you could use dry ginger as well on the days you don’t have access to fresh ones. To make it even tastier you could add few drops of lemon juice as well. Ppl with too much heat in the body (high pitta) may want to observe how body is reacting to it and then take a call.

How does it help?

As per Ayurveda, ginger is used to control nausea and vomiting because of its appetising, digestive and taste-enhancing properties. It is because of these properties that ginger is given during morning sickness experienced during pregnancy.

Rock salt is known to help improve metabolism or the chemical reaction in the body that helps maintain the health of cells while replenishing the body’s electrolytes and maintaining the pH balance, which ultimately helps improve the functioning of the body.

As per ayurveda, it is said that impaired digestion at the tissue level produces excess toxic remains or waste which causes accumulation of bad cholesterol and leads to blockage in the blood vessels. Ginger, which has antispasmodic (helps smoothen muscular movement) properties, improves digestive fire and reduces excess waste while clearing up the blockage of blood vessels over a period of time.

Contra indications

People with “too much heat in the body (high pitta) may want to observe how body is reacting to it and then take a call”, said Kaur.
