Triphala is a combination of three Myrobalan fruits (Haritaki, Amalaki and Bibhitaki). The base is Haritaki. Charaka, considered the "father of non-surgical Ayurvedic Indian medicine" - author of the Charaka Samhita (a collection of scriptures from the 2nd millennium BC, the "Collection of the Charaka") - said that this fruit was just as nourishing and beneficial be like mother's milk. Haritaki is a `Yogavahini` which means that it cleanses all shrotas (body channels) and it is very quickly absorbed by the body.
The second ingredient is Amalaki - according to the scriptures it is the best rejuvenating agent. Amalaki is digestive, contains almost all of the Ayurvedic flavors (all except salty) and balances all the doshas. Although it has a digestive effect, it does not increase Pitta, which is why it is often used to treat stomach acid.
Bibhitaki, the last of the three myrobalan fruits, cleanses blood plasma (rasa), muscle tissue and eliminates harmful non-metabolizable waste products (AMA).
A large part of our immune system is controlled by our intestines. So if your intestines are not doing well, it will eventually show up in physical reactions.
Possible reactions of the body are, for example, cardiovascular problems, skin blemishes or diseases, stomach inflammation, tiredness and poor sleep, problems in the digestive system or headaches.
According to Ayurvedic understanding, triphala can be used to drain toxins from the gastrointestinal tract; so it's supposed to help with colon 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.
