Do you like it salty?
Lavana rasa or the salty taste is made from the water and fire elements.
Lavana rasa is balancing for Vata dosha but aggravating for Pitta and Kapha.
Salt is renowned for stimulating the digestion. If it is used wisely it is a medicine but when taken in excess it becomes a poison.
The Ayurvedic properties are:
Rasa (taste): salty
Virya (potency): heating apart from saindhava which is cooling
Vipaka (post digestive effect): sweet
Guna (qualities): heavy and wet
Dosha: increases Pitta and Kapha, Balancing for Vata
(The Ayurvedic properties vary according to the different type of salt)
