Ama is a Sanskrit word that means “unripe”. In Ayurveda, it is a term for internal toxins that appear as symptoms of an improper metabolic functioning.
When Agni (digestive fire) is strong and the Doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) are in balance, the body digests and eliminates impurities. Otherwise, when Agni is weak and the doshas aggravated because of poor diet, unhealthy lifestyle habits, negative emotions, the food is not digested properly.
Unabsorbed food particles accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract and turn into a substance called Ama. From its origin location of the body, Ama can overflow to other channels such as the blood vessels, capillaries and lymphatics.
