  • According to Ayurveda, the wrong food leads to indigestion and the accumulation of the ama (toxins). The food we eat is digested by digestive fire (Jatharagni) to produce a nutrient plasma that nourishes all dhatus (body tissues) which produces healthy blood that circulates through various channels (strotas).
  • If the ama mixes with this plasma it makes Sama, which leads to the heaviness of the blood. This heavy blood is accumulated in the heart channels and leads to high blood pressure.
