Do you like Amla? Then you will also be interested in Ayurvedic nutrition bars, which are made from this valuable Indian fruit and can be taken as a healthy snack to school, work or enjoyed during sport activity.
Based on Amla (or Amalaki) and other nutritionally valuable fruits such as almonds, cashews, dates, pumpkin seeds, pistachios, mangoes and black raisins, this snack is even more special because of the elaborated combination of Ayurvedic herbs that are carefully selected to harmonize the individual doshas. Thus, in the VATA bar you will find warming cinnamon, ginger, shatavari, fennel, haritaki, ashwagandha, guduchi, vidarikand and nutmeg, while in the PITTA bar you will find cooling mint, cardamom, fennel, lemongrass, brahmi and manjishta, and in the KAPHA bar invigorating ginger, tulsi, vasaka, turmeric, long pepper and clove.
Healthy Nutrition in Accordance with One's Own Constitution and the Ayurvedic Daily Cycle
Healthy nutrition is a long-established term, under which we usually think of fresh and non-chemically processed foods rich in nutritional substances in the form of vitamins, minerals, fibre and other nutrients needed for the body. Ayurveda, as a science of healthy lifestyle that is a wise prevention of disease, takes this for granted and offers an even deeper insight into the nutrition of the human body.
Proper nutrition is distinguished according to the individual predominant psychosomatic constitution of Vata, Pitta or Kapha, which each person has been endowed with and which must be kept in balance for a healthy life. And it is diet that is the essential tool for maintaining or directing this individual balance. So although many foods are healthy, it does not mean that they have to be good for us. Just like herbs, every food has its own properties and effects on a person's internal environment. It then depends on which dosha prevails in us and accordingly we should avoid some foods and incorporate other items into our diet. Read more in the article Golden Ayurvedic Principle - Diet as Medicine.
For example, the ability to digest and absorb well depends on the presence of digestive fire (agni), which is associated with pitta dosha. Thus, if we have pitta (a combination of the element of fire and water) as our predominant dosha, then our digestive fire is likely to be strong enough and our digestion and subsequent absorption of nutrients into the body will work well. If we are predominantly vata (combination of air and ether) or kapha dosha (combination of water and earth), then our digestion may be weaker and would be necessary to support it by warming spices to stimulate the digestive fire.

Ayurvedic Daily Cycle
From an Ayurvedic perspective, it is not only what we eat, but also when we eat. Read how the three doshas regularly alternate in the daily 24-hour cycle and how they affect the biological rhythm of the body in our article Ayurvedic Daily Cycle. The time when our bodies digest best is subject to this regular cycle, and if one knows it, one can adjust one's daily routine to take advantage of the increased strength of the digestive fire at a particular time, or conversely, use another time for a different activity that is adequate for the body and mind at that moment.
Ayurvedic Nutrition Bars do not only add valuable nutrients to the body, but are designed as modern nutrition in accordance with thousands of years of Ayurvedic knowledge about maintaining psychosomatic balance based on the knowledge of doshas and the Ayurvedic daily cycle. Enjoy a healthy Ayurvedic snack that will satiate you meaningfully, support your immune system and overall psychosomatic health. Choose from three delicious nutritional bars - VATA, PITTA and KAPHA.
