A correct balancing of these tastes is considered essential for the growth of a healthy body. in other words, a healthy diet has to contain a combination of all six tastes.

Herbs such as emblic myrobalan (popularly known in india as amla) cater to all the six tastes at one go. They act on the body to increase or decrease the three humours : kapha, pitta and vata.
