Chitrakadi Vati is a popular herbal formulation used in the Ayurveda system of medicines. Most of its ingredients are Katu (pungent) in taste. Chitrakadi Vati is also called Chitrakadi Gutika. It helps to digest undigested food and removes accumulated toxins due to the malabsorption of food particles. This further improves digestion and metabolism of the body and thus prevents various diseases.
According to Ayurveda, Chitrakadi Vati is mainly used to manage the conditions that occur due to the formation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) like indigestion, flatulence, abdominal pain, constipation, and anorexia. It helps to digest the Ama and helps in Shodhana (detoxification) of the body due to its Deepan (appetizer) and Pachan (digestion) properties. It manages all the three doshas, especially the Vata and Kapha dosha, and improves the Pitta dosha[2,3].
Chitrakadi Vati, when taken in the prescribed dose and duration, is considered safe for use. However, if you are suffering from any chronic disease, it would be best to consult a doctor before using Chitrakadi Vati.
