Pitta - That which generates heat energy in the body is called pitta dosha. Pitta regulates the enzymes and the hormones in the body. The food we ingest and the oxygen we breath in is converted into doshas, dhatus and malas by pitta.
Pitta maintains body temperature and digests food. It imports colour to the blood and skin.
Pitta also controls mental functions like intellect, courage and happiness.
When pitta is not in balance the digestion is adversely affected and energy level goes down. Kapha begins to accumulate in the lungs and heart.
