Chitrak is a potent heating spice that enkindles the digestive fire and stimulates the metabolism. Its pungent flavor and heating energy burn away toxins and accumulated fats in the intestines and throughout the body, helping to support proper digestion and promote healthy body weight. Chitrak is an excellent herb for reducing Kapha and is used in most all ayurvedic weight loss formulations.

The purifying and heating properties of Chitrak strengthen digestion and clean the GI tract by encouraging the breakdown of toxins and accumulated fats. Chitrak supports the proper function of the liver and the metabolization of fats and sugars. It helps energize the body naturally by promoting healthy digestion and the proper absorption and assimilation of nutrients. For these reasons, Chitrak is widely used in weight management formulations, where it provides a powerful boost to the metabolism and the organs of digestion, helping to not only prevent the accumulation of new fats but also burn away stagnate fat deposits.

Chitrak's balancing of Vata and reduction of Kapha is healing for the joints, particularly for people with kapha constitutions, as it balances body fluid levels and reduces friction and pain in the joints. These actions also mitigate the effects of allergies by reducing mucus without drying delicate mucus membranes.

About Gopala Ayurveda
The Hindi meaning Gopala is 'The Nurturer of the Cow'. The cow is an auspicious blessing from Mother Earth for the good of all humankind. They who care for the blessings which our Mother has given us, care for the Mother herself. It is through this care that the bountiful provision which is our inheritance is enjoyed, preserved and multiplied for ourselves, our children and generations to come. This is our deepest desire and purpose: that all humanity may have life and have it more fully. Our name in every way reflects this desire and the means by which we propose to pursue it. It is for this reason that we use only 100% organically grown, harvested, and processed herbs in our products, support sustainable economics, and endeavor to continue the millennia old tradition of natural and holistic science.

The roots of Gopala Ayurveda reach deep into the rich and ancient naturopathic tradition of Ayurveda. Utilizing the wisdom of this four thousand year old science with the technological potential of modern science we render these ancient formulations in a potent form, all the while maintaining faithful adherence to the formulae and therapies of the ancient texts. To this end, we have spearheaded research to develop Ayurveda's vast herbal tradition into a comprehensive range of products to support healthiest and longest lives for our customers. These products have been met with warm reception in medical communities all over the world, and continue to serve the personal and healthcare needs of all parts of humanity.

Gopala is a pioneer in purely organic ayurvedic supplements, herbs, and oils. We promote healthy foods and nutritional products, and despite utilizing the benefits of modern science and technology, we train a strict eye on all stages of development and processing to be sure that our products do not suffer contact with any toxic or synthetic chemicals. Since the birth of this project, we have focused on the development of safe and effective remedies that will help people lead richer and healthier lives.

Gopala is not simply organic, which means to be free from any chemicals, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, artificial additives, preservatives, and heavy metals, but we are 100% Certified Organic, meaning that the customer has the added security of the USDA regulatory action which requires that all ingredients in all products be traceable through their processing history and to the place of origin. Consequently, the consumer may know both exactly where and when each herb came from and the circumstances surrounding this journey to their hands. Gopala is unique in this regard. Other manufacturers, having claimed proprietary rights to ancient formulae have taken the liberties of enhancing these revered concoctions with preservatives, synthetic substitutes, and more. We, however, continue this venerable tradition as it has been maintained for thousands of years, in the sole interest of a whole and healthy life.

We at Gopala Ayurveda invite you to browse our website's many products and informative articles and Allow us to serve you and your community with the bounty of Mother Nature!

Many Blessings for Health and Happiness,
