Comments: Inflammation is related to an aggravated Pitta dosha. This recipe makes use of Pitta pacifying ingredients like Bok Choy, coconut oil, and coriander seeds powder, making this dish anti-inflammatory. The use of garlic and rock salt (rock salt, unlike the table salt, does not aggravate Pitta) makes sure that the fibrous Bok Choy does not produce gas and is digested properly. Bok choy provides various antioxidants (which have a role in fighting inflammation) along with two additional anti-inflammatory nutrients. The first of these nutrients are omega-3s. About 70 milligrams of ALA are found in one cup of cooked bok choy. Another anti-inflammatory nutrient provided by bok choy is vitamin K. While best known for its role in bone health and blood clotting, vitamin K has also been shown to help regulate our body’s inflammatory responses, especially in relationship to our cardiovascular system.
