Triphala is a combination of three myrobalan fruits (Haritaki, Amalaki and Bibhitaki). The basis is Haritaki. Charaka, considered the "father of non-surgical Ayurvedic Indian medicine" - author of the Charaka Samhita (a collection of writings from the 2nd millennium BC, the "Collection of Charaka") - believed that this fruit was just as nourishing and beneficial be like mother's milk. Haritaki is a 'Yogavahini' which means it cleanses all shrotas (body channels) and it is absorbed very quickly by the body.
The second ingredient is Amalaki – according to the scriptures it is the best rejuvenating agent. Amalaki has a digestive effect, contains almost all of the Ayurvedic flavors (all except salty) and balances all doshas. Although it has a digestive effect, it does not increase pitta, which is why it is often used for stomach hyperacidity.
Bibhitaki, the last of the three myrobalan fruits, cleanses the blood plasma (Rasa), muscle tissue and eliminates stressful non-metabolic waste products (AMA).
A large part of our immune system is controlled by our intestines. So if your intestines aren't doing well, this will eventually manifest itself in physical reactions.
Possible reactions of the body include cardiovascular problems, skin blemishes or diseases, stomach inflammation, fatigue and poor sleep, problems in the digestive system or even headaches.
According to Ayurvedic understanding, Triphala can be used to remove toxins from the gastrointestinal tract; So it's supposed to help with intestinal cleansing.
Take 1 teaspoon of the powder in a cup of warm water, dissolve it and drink the mixture slowly.
If you prefer to take Triphala as a dietary supplement, we recommend the organic Triphala capsules from our online shop.
