Want to feel like you are thriving? We believe that this can be accomplished by giving the body certain nutrients and herbs. In Ayurveda, the digestive fire of the body is called “Agni” and it is responsible for taking what we put into our bodies and transforming it into wellness. Agni is the energy oftransformation.
Modern science tells us essentially the same thing, that the digestive system is responsible for keeping things moving in and through the body, holding onto nutrients while eliminating other substances. Your digestive system breaks nutrients into parts small enough for your body to absorb and use for energy, growth, and cell repair. This is the process of Agni.
So how do we increase our digestive fire?
Ayurvedic herbs and spices are used to increase Agni. These include different ‘tastes’ which range from sour and pungent to salty. Fiery tastes such as sour, pungent, and salty work to increase our digestive fire and can be found in herbs such as cumin, turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper.

Traditionally known for its anti-inflammatory effects, curcumin has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent, thus serving as a therapy for immune disorders. Nirgundi is a common ingredient in various healing sciences. It is an analgesic and anti-inflammatory.
Ashwagandha has traditionally been used to strengthen the immune system after illness. It has also been referred to as “Indian ginseng” because of its ability to enhance your stamina and work as a natural stress reliever. Every part of the moringa tree can be used for its various healing properties. It has been called the “miracle tree” for its nutritional assets.
Cinnamon is a stimulating spice which prepares and promotes Agni within the body. Fenugreek slows absorption of sugars in the stomach and stimulates insulin. In traditional Chinese medicine, the spice is known as a “phlegm mover” and is said to break up stuck energies and cool inflammation within the body.
