    Kindly mention which doshas bhringrajasav is balancing to. How does it effects on vata pitta and kapha humour.

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Because of its pungent, bitter taste, dryness and lightness, it balances Kapha Dosha. Because of its hot potency, it balances Vata. Hence, it balances Kapha and Vata Doshas.
