Updated: Jan 26

According to Ayurveda*, the bio energy comprising of the element of Air and Ether ie Vata is light, cool, and dry in nature and it governs all movement in the body. One of the seats of Vata is the colon and an aggravated vata could lead to the vata type dry constipation . Home made Almond milk according to Ayurvedic wisdom has the qualities or Gunas of being heavy ,sweet tasting, warming and is an excellent way to balance an aggravated Vata Dosha as the qualities of almond milk will balance the qualities of Vata. It is preferable to make Almond milk at home as the commercially available ones may contain preservatives and additives, thickeners, starches, gums to make us feel that they are rich and creamy but in reality are heavily adulterated and diluted.

An aggravated Vata could be helped by home made almond milk but for enhanced benefit and overall health, its best that we live a lifestyle according to natures principles and eat a overall healthy plant based diet devoid of processed food and drinks.
