Amlapitta Ghan Vati - Ingredients, Method Of Preparation & Its Uses


Amlapitta is hyperacidity, this is developed due to ama dosha. Increased Vidagdha pitta is called as amlapitta. Madhukosh has also said that 'amlam vidagdham ch tat pittam, amlapitta' vidagdha pitta results in amlapitta. Hyperacidity is called the group of symptoms developed because of the disturbed acid secretory mechanism and protection mechanism of the intestines. Normally, the stomach secretes the acid that is very useful in protein digestion but when it is increased in the stomach it leads to acidity. The inequity in the quantity of this acid or if the reflux of this acid occurs into the throat and then the mouth starts to burn, it is a sign of hyperacidity. Planet Ayurveda provides a formulation for hyperacidity that is named as Amlapitta ghan vati. This tablet articulation is very beneficial in this ongoing condition. It is totally based on 100% natural herbs that are free from side-effects, colours, dyes or fillers. In this article we are going to discuss Amlapitta ghan vati and its indication in various diseases.


Amlapitta ghan vati is very useful in hyperacidity and is a patented herbal medicine from Planet Ayurveda that gives various benefits to the patients that are suffering from hyperacidity or pittaja conditions. Amlapitta ghan vati is one of them. This is 100% natural and totally free from side-effects, chemical preservatives, fillers, dyes, colours and chemical constituents. Acidity is a very common problem nowadays. This is Annavaha srotas vyadhi mentioned in various Ayurvedic texts and can be correlated with gastroesophageal reflux disease. In this context we are discussing Amlapitta ghan vati for Amlapitta vikara.

Amlapitta has been mentioned in detail in classical texts such as Kashayapa Samhita, Bhaishajya Ratnavali, and Yog Ratnakar. This is kept under Pittaj condition which shows symptoms like

  • Amlodgar (belching of bitter or sour taste)
  • Hritkantha daha (burning in heart or oesophagus or in throat)
  • Gaurav (heaviness)
  • Antra Kujana (gurgling sounds in intestines)
  • Trishula (chest pain)
  • Vidbheda (diarrhoea or loose stools)
  • Klama(fatigue without work)
  • Aruchi (not perceiving any taste)
  • Utklesha (Nausea or may lead to vomiting)

These conditions cause low digestive fire and lead to vidagdha ajirna (indigestion caused due to acidified chyle). Vitiated Pitta and Ama dosha togetherly cause Pitta Amavisha Sammurchhana (combination of unmetabolized Rasa and undigested food with Rasa) and results in Acidity or Amlapitta. This may also cause ulcers, dyspepsia, may get loose esophageal sphincter. Amlapitta ghan vati is very important and useful in this condition. It is filled with various healthy components that are very useful in this disease, showing synergistic action against Amlapitta.
