Herbs to Rev Your Digestive Fire!

Why warm digestion? Well, one, it’s winter, and it’s cold! If you’re someone who is always piling on the scarves and sweaters and your fingers and toes are cold, you may want to consider these herbs that can help warm your digestion.

This fire (called agni in Ayurveda) is all about the power of our digestive organs' to process and absorb what we eat while also burning off waste products. When we have a strong digestive fire, we are able to easily digest food and absorb its nutrients. If we have a weak digestive fire, our body won’t digest food well, leaving undigested particles behind that create inflammation in the body. 

This Inflammation can show up as:

  • Hunger

  • Sluggish bowels
  • Bulky stool
  • Feeling cold
  • Sweet craving
  • Stimulant craving
