Ayurveda Tastes – Sour
🍋According to Ayurveda tastes Sour is composed of Earth and Fire and is hot, light, and moist by nature. It is commonly found in citrus fruits (such as lemon and limes), sour milk products and fermented substances (including wine, vinegar, pickles, sauerkraut, and soy sauce)
🍋Used in moderation, Sour taste stimulates digestion, helps circulation and elimination, energizes the body, strengthens the heart, relieves thirst, maintains acidity, sharpens the senses, and helps extract minerals such as iron from food.
🍋It also nourishes all the vital tissues (dhatus) except the reproductive tissues (the exception being yogurt, which nourishes all the tissues)
