This week we will learn the Ayurvedic perspective of one of the healthy and delicious fruits – FIGS
Figs according to the classical texts of Ayurveda are from the fruits category which help in the restoration of normal quantity of urine. Figs are all seasonal fruits mostly grown in India and also some parts of Australia.


Ayurvedic properties of Figs

  • Figs are astringent and sweet in taste
  • They are heavier on digestion
  • They are drying in nature
  • They undergo pungent taste after digestion
  • They are cold in potency
  • Figs, due to their astringent taste have blocking effect property which means they have the property to stop or block the fluids or liquid elements in the body. Hence, they work very well in heavy menstrual cycles/heavy bleeding.

Dosha perspective

  • Figs have the capacity to pacify Vata dosha and can pacify Pitta dosha
  • Due to their sweet taste, heavier on digestion, Figs can aggravate the kapha dosha
  • Figs work well in vitiated Pitta and Rakta(blood) dosha.


  • Figs are nourishing and provide strength
  • They are good for people with general debility
  • They are also thirst quenchers
  • They are beneficial for people with bleeding disorders
