Hingwastak is composed of Hing, also known as Asafoetidam combined with seven other Ayurvedic herbs to help maintain proper function of the gastrointestinal tract. It is primarily used for imbalances of Apana Vayu, the downward moving energy of the body. Apana is responsible for eliminative functions such as defecation, Micturition, flatulence, menstruation, ejaculation and giving birth. Excellent for Vata, Hingvastak can be taken for gas, indigestion, constipation and other common problems associated with poor metabolism. Also useful for kapha imbalances as a decongestant, this mixture may be aggravating to pitta due to its internally heating attribute.
