Dadima (Pomegranate)

कषायानुरसं ग्राहि द्विविधा ह्यम्लवेतवत्
तयोः स्वादु त्रिदोषघ्नमम्लं वातबलास्रजित्
शुष्काम्लदाडिमीसारः फुट्टितं कफवातहृत् ॥२॥

Tayoh Svaadu Tri-Dossa-Ghnam-Amlam Vaata-Bala-Asra-Jit |

Meaning:
2.1: It tastes Kashaya (Astringent taste) when wet, it is Grahi (Both Dipana [stimulates appetite] and Pacana [helps in digestion], and by virtue of its Ushna Guna [or Virya] dries up the Moisture and helps in digestion) and has two varieties; one is Amla (Sour) and the other like Cane (i.e Sweet),
2.2: Of that, the Sweet variety mitigates the three Doshas (Disorders due to Vata, Pitta or Kapha), while the Sour variety mitigates the power of aggravated Vata (A Dosha in Ayurveda which is compared to Air (responsible for movement). The qualities are coldness, dryness, lightness etc) and Asra (Blood or blood-related disorders),
2.3: The Juice of ripe Dried Sour Pomegranate mitigates Kapha (A Dosha in Ayurveda which is compared to the Moon [Cooling Principle].
