Triphala, translated as “three fruits,” is composed of Amalaki, Haritaki and Bibhitaki. This powerful threesome is likely the most popular herbal formula in Ayurvedic medicine. It is renowned because of its unique ability to gently cleanse and detoxify the system while simultaneously replenishing and nourishing it. One way Triphala does this is by toning up the GI tract. It is helpful for sluggish digestion, constipation, gas, bloating and indigestion. With improved digestion we assimilate nutrients with ease and are better nourished. Likewise, with improved elimination we are better detoxifiers. When detox channels are working optimally skin problems such as rashes and acne clear up. Triphala is also known to clear dreadful coats from the tongue indicating the entire GI tract is happier and healthier.
Although Triphala is an amazing and highly revered formula, it can tend to be drying in dry climates and for those with dry constitutions and respectively drier digestive tracts. Therefore, three demulcent, moistening herbs are added to the traditional formula. These herbs soothe and lubricate the mucous membranes of an overly dry intestinal tract. This improves Triphala’s ability to support healthy movement of the bowels. The combination in Triphala Plus effectively promotes healthy, regular bowel movements without the use of energetic or stimulating laxatives which can be habit forming.*
