Amruthotharam Kwath is an Ayurvedic medicine that is formulated as per the classical texts. It contains ingredients with carminative properties that are widely used in Ayurvedic medicine for digestion problems and to help relieve bloating and flatulence. It also contains powerful ingredients that can help reduce Jwara (fever). Proper digestion is the root of good health. When the digestive and metabolic process is proper, it ensures a healthy metabolism and prevents the formation of harmful toxins called Ama.
Ayurveda places primary importance on digestion being the most important process to ensure good health. When digestion is not proper there is the formation of the metabolic waste called Ama. When there is Ama formation over a long period of time, it becomes a highly dangerous toxin called Amavisha. When the Amavisha affects a part of the body it causes disease. Detoxifying the body of all the accumulated Ama is very important. One should then ensure that the digestive process is efficient so that no new Ama is formed. Amruthotharam Kwath contains detoxifying herbs that help relieve the body of the accumulated Ama. These herbs are also used in many Ayurvedic digestive syrups and medicine to help ensure optimum digestion and metabolism.

Ayurvedic Perspective On Digestive Issues And Metabolism
Ayurveda states that the person’s digestion determines his health. When the process of digestion and metabolism is inefficient, a metabolic toxin called Ama is formed. Ama is the root cause of most health problems. Over a period of time, Ama can accumulate and become Amavisha that is very harmful. Ayurvedic medicine for digestion problems and external treatments are usually sought after by people to eliminate toxins. Lifestyle and diet changes can also help a person maintain a metabolism that is efficient.
The strength of the Agni or the digestive fire determines the digestive ability. Agni varies with the position of the Sun in the sky. So the digestive strength is low in the morning and evening and at its peak at noon. A person is advised to eat their heaviest meal in the middle of the day when Agni is strong. The morning and evening meals should be light. It is also good to support the strength and quality of the Agni when required by eating the appropriate foods and taking the right herbs. It is advised that a person should avoid the intake of food that is too cold. Ideally, food should be freshly prepared and eaten warm and in a peaceful and unhurried manner.
The balance of the Doshas also affects the efficiency of the digestive system. When the Vata Dosha is excessive, there will be gas and bloating problems. Pitta is a heating and drying Dosha that can cause the content of the bowels to be dried up and the person can get constipated. Kapha Dosha causes too much mucus and the digestive process gets impaired. Amruthotharam Kwath contains the above-mentioned ingredients that are widely used in the formulation of Ayurvedic medicine for flatulence.
Digestive Issues and Metabolism – An overview
Digestion is important for the optimum absorption of nutrients and when digestion is impaired it causes deficiencies. This impacts a person’s overall health. Any issues with the organs that relate to digestion are treated in isolation. Indigestion is treated symptomatically. It is advised to modify the diet to eliminate trigger foods. When there are issues with the stomach due to infections, it is treated with antibiotics. Some autoimmune disorders such as Crohn’s and Sarcoidosis cause issues with the stomach. When the large intestine is affected by diverticulosis or piles it affects the digestion. A person should not drink too much tea, coffee or carbonated beverages. Some drugs have side effects that adversely impact digestion and should be avoided. It is important that a person maintain a diet that is rich in nutrients and fibre. Fresh and unprocessed food is better for digestion than overly processed foods. Western medicine particularly recommends a diet that is rich in fibre to keep the digestive system at its best.
