Why should you use Asafoetida ?

Ayurveda encourages us to include all six tastes in our meals. The six tastes are - salty, sweet, sour, bitter, astringent and pungent. Asafoetida is a pungent spice. Foods and spices that are pungent stimulate appetite and improve digestion. Adding asafoetida to our meals also reduces bloating and the feeling of heaviness after meals.

A pinch of asafoetida in buttermilk is a very good remedy for indigestion.

Asafoetida improves digestion and is an blood purifier.
