Chitrak (Plumbago zeylanica) is a powerful heating herb that is traditionally used to enkindle the digestive fire, support healthy metabolism, and remove natural toxins from the intestines. Also known as ceylon leadwort, it is an excellent herb for reducing kapha and is commonly used as a primary ingredient in weight management formulas. Chitrak supports the proper function of the liver and the healthy digestion of fat and sugars. It helps energize the body naturally by promoting healthy digestion and the proper absorption and assimilation of nutrients. For those with kapha constitutions, chitrak is also a good herb for supporting healthy joints and balanced body fluid levels.*
