Benefits & Uses of Trikatu Syrup
Trikatu Syrup has primary effect on stomach and increases digestive juices, which helps stimulating digestion. It also has influence on liver and increases production of bile salts. It stimulates secretion of bile from the gall bladder. It also stimulates pancreas functions. Therefore, it affects overall digestive system.

Increase bioavailability of nutrients & medicines
Trikatu contains PIPERINE, which is a great bio-enhancer phytochemical. It promotes the bioavailability of nutrients and other medicines including both ayurvedic as well as modern drugs. However, Trikatu Syrup may not have synergistic effect with other drugs, but increases the absorption of the drugs in the blood stream. It is helpful for those medicines, which are poorly absorbed in the blood stream. Almost all ayurvedic medicines contain Trikatu powder due to three main reasons.

Bio-enhancement of medicines
Correcting digestive fire
Reducing AMA (toxins developed due to undigested food) formation
Therefore, Trikatu Syrup is an essential ingredient in all types of ayurvedic remedies. Trikatu also improves and potentiates the action and functions of mineral-based medicines.

Obesity (Weight loss)
However, Trikatu Syrup is not appetite suppressant. Many places have wrongly described Trikatu as appetite suppressant, which is clinically as well as theoretically wrong statement. But it reduces body weight by acting on the root cause of obesity.

According to ayurveda, there are seven main tissues (DHATUS) and Fatty Tissue (MEDA) is one of them. Each DHATU plays a crucial role in formation of other DHATU. Blood (RAKTA) plays a role in accumulation of fat. The fatty acid concentration in the blood increases after having a meal. Insulin released from the pancreas stimulates the uptake of fatty acids in different cells of the body including fat cells, liver cells and muscle cells.

In ayurveda, this process is taken under action of BHOOTAGANI, which helps in metabolic transformation. Thereafter, there will be two main fates of metabolic process. One is utilization of fats and second is accumulation of fat in the body.

Body aches with feeling of heaviness in the body
Many people have reported body aches with feeling of heaviness in the body, which is generally common in winters. Trikatu powder increases warmth in the body and reduces body aches, heaviness, fatigue, restlessness etc.

High cholesterol levels
Trikatu Syrup is a good cholesterol-lowering remedy. Trikatu increase synthesis of bile acid from cholesterol in the liver. However, it may not block the cholesterol production like modern medicines, but it helps in proper utilization of cholesterol in the body and thus reduces excess cholesterol level in the blood.

Common cold (acute phase during running nose)
Trikatu Syrup has antiviral properties. It is taken with honey to reduce running nose and sneezing in the common cold. It is effective when running nose, congestion, sneezing and body aches are main symptoms. However, if throat is red, irritated and inflamed or if one has dry cough due to irritation in throat, Trikatu is not suitable in such condition. According to our experience, Trikatu is good in first 2 days of common cold. After that, Holy Basil (Tulsi) with some other herbs is more beneficial.

Asthma (chest congestion due to phlegm)
All three herbs present in Trikatu Syrup have bronchodilatory action. It also reduces production of phlegm and chest congestion.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Modern science yet does not know the exact cause of irritable bowel syndrome or IBS. Ayurvedic science believes it occurs due to malfunction of digestive fire, which affects widely all digestive organs. In this condition, some triggers cause contractions of intestinal muscles, which causes flatulence, gas, cramps, bloating or diarrhea.

In gout, patients have two types of pain experience. Some has pain with tenderness, redness and warmth on affected joints. In this case, Trikatu will not work.
