Ayurveda Tastes – Salt
🧂According to Ayurveda Tastes Salty is composed of Fire and Water and is hot, heavy, and moist by nature. It is found in any salt (such as sea salt and rock salt), sea vegetables (like seaweed and kelp), and foods to which large amounts of salt are added (like nuts, chips, and pickles)
🧂Due to its drying quality in the mouth, it may seem counter-intuitive to think of Salty taste as moistening. The element of Water in its composition, however, relates to its water retaining quality.
🧂Salty taste falls somewhere between Sweet and Sour tastes with regard to its heavy and moist qualities. While Sweet taste stimulates the greatest water retention and weight gain in the body, Salty taste will have similar effects when used in excess by any of the doshas
🧂In moderation, Salty taste improves the flavor of food, improves digestion, lubricates tissues, liquefies mucous, maintains mineral balance, aids in the elimination of wastes, and calms the nerves.
🧂🧂Due to its tendency to attract water, it also improves the radiance of the skin and promotes overall growth in the body. ••Taste is made from the same five elements that make up the dishes in our body.When your doshas are out of balance, these six tastes can help you repair this imbalance••
