1.Individuals of dominant Kapha Doshas have slower metabolism and are often attracted to sweet foods. Pitta governs metabolic activities in the body.
2. An exaggerated Pitta imbalance affects the body's metabolism, including sugar metabolism. Kapha's sometime need help to curb sugar cravings. Gymnema helps sugar metabolism to balance both of these body type imbalances.
3. Kaphas should start an regimented exercise program and should minimize oily, sweet, heavy foods.
4. Pitta dominant people should not just limit sugar intake hen out of balance; but also keep an eye on Pitta aggravating foods (hence taxing an overworked metabolic system) such oily, fired foods, alcohol, spicy foods.
