    • Because of its pungent, bitter taste, dryness and lightness, it balances Kapha Dosha. Because of its hot potency, it balances Vata. Hence, it balances Kapha and Vata Doshas.

        • Sir, No individual is made up of one prakruthi it always will be associated with another may be kapha or may be vata. This medicine can be taken to subside the kapha and vata imbalance.
