Triphala means 'three fruits' is an Ayurvedic rasayana formula consisting of equal parts of three myrobalans, taken without seed: Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki (Terminalia bellirica), and Haritaki(Terminalia chebula). This traditional Ayurvedic rasayanic formulation dates back thousands of years and is referenfced in the traditional Ayurvedic texts the Charak and Sushrut Samhitas. It is also considered as a 'tridoshic rasayan' having balance on all the three doshas i.e. Vata which regulates the nervous system, Pitta which maintains metabolic processes and Kapha which supports structural integrity.
Triphala is Ayurveda's foremost internal cleanser, providing excellent detoxification for all constitutions. Triphala combines both nutritional as well as blood and liver cleansing actions. Its penetrative cleansing properties remove toxins from the deepest tissues and the digestive tract. Triphala regulates bowel function and can be useful for IBS conditions associated with constipation. Triphala promotes proper digestion and assimilation of nutrients, stimulates bile secretion and detoxification of the liver and purifies the blood. Triphala is unique in its combined eliminative and tonic properties and is highly nutritive, being rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants.
