Ever since the coronavirus pandemic hit our lives, many households follow a regular routine of drinking kadha every single day. From boosting our immunity to improving our overall health, drinking kadha is said to have various health benefits. But like is the case with everything, overconsumption of kadha too can have side effects and may prove dangerous.
We talked to Dr Rakhi Nagar, BAMS, PGCPK, Ayurveda consultant and Panchakarma specialist, to know about the number of times one should have kadha every day (and also the right quantity).
As per Dr Rakhi, the amount of kadha one should have depends greatly on one’s Ayurvedic body type.
Vata body type: People with this body type can have kadha two times in a day. These people can also add some ghee in their kadha to avoid dryness in their body.
Pitta body type: People with pitta body type should not have kadha more than once a day. Also, these people should never have kadha on an empty stomach. The best time to have kadha for people with pitta body type is evening.
Kapha body type: People with Kapha body can consume kadha 2-3 times a day. In fact, these people are more prone to getting viral illness and thus kadha is like a nectar for them.
