Metabolism is the chemical reaction in the body cells that changes food into energy. The metabolism process help in growth and reproduction and help in maintaining the structure of living organisms. Two processes occur in metabolism are catabolism or anabolism. Catabolism helps in breaking down larger organic molecule into smaller molecule and releases energy. Anabolism involved in building up or synthesizing compounds from simpler substances required by cells. This process requires and store energy.

When the food is not properly digested and metabolized is known as ama and the undigested food particles act like as toxins. The most important agni is Jatharagni. It is located in the stomach and duodenum area. It plays an important role in digesting food by converting into minute particles which is assimilated by body tissue and cell.
