Journal Title:International Journal of Ayurveda and Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Amlapitta manifests when a person, in whom pitta has been vitiated-uses food and drink that are incompatible, spoiled, very sour and that are capable of causing vitiation of pitta and increases drava and amlaguna of pitta. Another basic cause of amlapitta according to charakacharya is ajirna (indigestion). The increasing rate of amlapitta presents a constant challenge to the research workers of Ayurveda. In this clinical study, Shunthi (Zingiber Officinale) churna has been used in 33 patients having symptoms of urdhawagamlapitta viz., amlodgar, tiktodgar, utklesh, chhardi, udarshool. According to Ayurvedic text, Shunthi is aampachan and dipan helps in improving ajirna. Madhurvipak and grahiguna of Shunthi reduces amla and dravaguna of vitiated pitta. This study has revealed a highly significant effect of Shunthi churna(P <0.001) in the management of urdhwagamlapitta.3wX
