Trikatu is an ancient formula made up of the three herbal stimulants known as Pippali, Maricha, and Sunthi in equal amounts. Trikatu is basically a Sanskrit word that means “three spices”. It is the main stimulant compound used by Ayurvedic doctors since years. Containing fruits of black pep per (Piper nigrum), Indian long pepper (Piper longum) and the rhizomes of ginger (Zingiber officinalis), it is a common combination used stimulating and maintaining the digestive and respiratory systems as being natural appetizer, it is best for indigestion.

Trikatu is an herbal compound that is considered as potent carminative as it provides a natural and safe support system for gastric function associated with gaseous distension.
A complimentary formula to Triphala, Trikatu means ‘three peppers’ or ‘three pungents’. It is a combination of Black Pepper (Piper nigrum), Indian Long Pepper (Piper longum) and Ginger (Zingiber officinale). While Triphala lends a hand to the lower GI tract, Trikatu has its primary effects in the upper GI tract, where it enhances the ‘digestive fire’ necessary for the breakdown of food and absorption of nutrients. Trikatu is a combination of natural herbs and is safe and effective.
Trikatu churna is also known as trikatu choornam, Trikatu choorna, katutraya churna, katutraya choorna etc.
Ayurvedic practitioners consider Trikatu a ‘warming formula’, used to awaken Agni (digestion) and destroy Ama (accumulated waste & toxins).
According to Ayurvedic theory, poor quality food and inconsistent eating habits can create a dullness to the upper GI, which, if uncorrected, will result in further deviations from overall health. Specifically, it can lead to unhealthy food cravings. This creates a feedback loop, since the poor food choices driven by the cravings reinforce the digestive dysfunction.
