Bunged up this winter? Ayurveda to the rescue. Pippali or long pepper, is the third, less well-known ingredient in the popular herb forumulation, Trikatu (pippali, black pepper, ginger) that along with helping digestion, is super useful is clearing up a winter cold. Let's dive into this herb:
Lungs: it helps relieve mucus, increase circulation, clear asthma and alleviate muscle and joint aches
