Translating as "three pungents", Trikatu contains the herbs pippali, ginger, and black pepper. The powerful heating quality of this combination is traditionally used to enkindle the digestive fire and to effectively burn fat and natural toxins. Trikatu supports a healthy metabolism, allowing nutrients to be properly digested and assimilated, and is especially helpful for kapha people to lose weight. It is also a rejuvenative for kapha, supporting healthy lungs and uncongested breathing.
According to Ayurvedic theory, poor quality food and inconsistent eating habits can create a dullness to the upper GI, which, if uncorrected, will result in further deviations from overall health. Specifically, it can lead to unhealthy food cravings. This creates a feedback loop, since the poor food choices driven by the cravings reinforce the digestive dysfunction.

There are many studies with Trikatu showing that it increases the bioavailability of certain drugs. "Trikatu, as per Ayurveda’s Bhaisajyaratnawali is a compound herbal formulation containing three bitter herbs mixed together in equal quantities. Dried fruits of Piper nigrum (Maricha) and Piper longum (Peepli) and dried rhizomes of Zingiber officinale (Sunthi) are used to prepare this miraculous formulation. It is prescribed in Ayurvedic system of medicine for treatment of tastelessness, digestive impairment, and diseases of nose and throat such as chronic rhinitis/sinusitis, skin diseases, asthma, cough, frequent urination, obesity, and Filariasis. Trikatu is also added in various Ayurvedic formulations with a view to restore the disturbed “tridoshas- vatta, pitta and kapha.” It calms down the increased Vata and Kapha and increases the Pitta. It has pungent (katu) taste, hot (ushna) potency, light (laghu) and dry (ruksha) quality, and digestive (amapachaka) therapeutic effect. Modern pharmacological studies also revealed that Trikatu possesses the capability to enhance the bioavailability of various phytoconstituents and synthetic drugs if incorporated with them thereby helping in achieving the therapeutic goals. Apart from traditionally known health benefits, Trikatu also possesses immunomodulatory, antiviral, expectorant, carminative, hypolipidemic, hypoglycemic, antiemetic, and anti-inflammatory potential. Simply it is concluded that Trikatu is a miraculous combination which is needed to be explored more exhaustively to solve the bioavailability issues of allopathic, ayurvedic, and other traditional systems of medicines." https://www.researchgate.net/publication/329129608_Trikatu_-_A_combination_of_three_bioavailability_enhancers
