A healthy diet with the six tastes of food – Ayurveda living

From ancient times Sri Lanka has been praised world over for its medicines that are closely linked to nature. Ayurveda is a closely associated term in the Sri Lankan culture .Sri Lanka ayurveda hotels have attracted many tourist to the island. One that gains prominent place is the Jetwing Ayurveda Pavillion located in the Western Coastal town of Negombo. The hotel has individual villas with little private gardens for each guest and helps one to slip away from the busy life while under the safe hands of trained professionals.

According to Ayurveda , the six tastes namely , sweet , sour , pungent ,bitter , salty and astringent should all be present in every meal to make sure one is satisfied as well as to ensure that all major groups of food and nutrients are present. According to ayurveda each taste is composed of two elements. Such as water , earth , air , ether and fire. A balanced meal in ayurveda consists of these six tatstes.

When sweet is considered it has a very moist oily and excellent taste and is represented by water and earth. Sour is composed of fire and earth with a warming effect on the system it is recommended for digestion. Salty taste is predominant of water and fire which gives the body energy and promotes growth . Meanwhile the bitter taste contains anti bacterial and anti viral properties. It is believed to be of the elements of ether and air. Pungent taste constitutes the elements of air and fire and is excellent for circulation and digestion. The final taste of astringent is cooling , healing and heavy by nature and is believed to be made up of air and earth.

Ayurveda promotes the consumption of all these tastes in moderate amounts for a healthy life style.
