|+||Amla Avastha Paka (Sour stage). |
|+||Hydrochloric acid ([[pachaka pitta]]) is secreted in the [[stomach]] and makes the food acidic. [[Kledaka kapha]] protects the stomach from the acidic secretions. Stomach is still [[heavy]], due to [[Earth element]], but increasingly lighter from [[Fire element]], which promotes digestive [[enzymes]]. Digestion of [[protein]] and [[fat]] begins. The sour stage can exacerbate [[pitta conditions]], such as [[itching]] and [[skin rashes]]. Sour taste is yielded into [[rasa dhatu]]. |
