Ayurvedic Perspective on Sitopladi Churna

Sitopladi is one of our most popular churnas at the clinic and is widely used to treat 😷 respiratory conditions. Suitable for both adults and children!

The powder combines long-pepper (pippali), cinnamon, bamboo silica, mishri (rock sugar) and cardamom.

What is bamboo silica? Also called Vanshlochan or Tabasheer, bamboo silica is the herbal silica taken from female bamboo trees. It is used therapeutically to treat breathing difficulties, dry cough and improving immunity.

As an expectorant, Sitopladi is great for breaking through and eliminating mucus while strengthening for the entire respiratory system. Beneficial for treating asthma, cough and upper respiratory infections due to its bronchodilator qualities opening the airways. Sitopladi can also be used in stimulating the appetite and improving digestion due to its heating potency.

Taste (Rasa): Both sweet and pungent. Particularly pacifying for both Vata and Kapha doshas.

Action (Virya): Heating

Post-digestive quality: (Vipaka): Sweet

Sitopladi can increase Pitta dosha when taken in excess, due to its heating properties. It is suggested to speak to an Ayurvedic physician to make sure it is suitable for you.
