Triphala, as the name suggests, is a herbal blend of three fruits, which has been used for ages in Ayurveda. Triphala is used in Ayurveda as bowel tonic, which was often prescribed as a mild laxative. Well, its laxative quality might be very popular, but it’s the other qualities that are more noteworthy.
To know the real benefits of Triphala, we need to first go through the benefits of each fruit in the combination.
Amalaki is one of the most popular Ayurvedic treasures widely used in classical formulations. The Indian gooseberry has always been Ayurveda’s widely used rejuvenator for ages. It helps in lowering cholesterol and it is also rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. Amalaki helps in balancing tridoshas especially Pitta dosha.
Haritaki is known for its positive health benefits on various systems of our body that includes the digestive system as well. It is used as a laxative but its anti-inflammatory properties help to calm down Vata.
Bibhitaki is a very powerful ancient rejuvenator that also has detoxifying qualities. Bibhitaki is beneficial for conditions involving excess mucous in the system.
These three fruits that make Triphala are beneficial in calming any sort of imbalance in the tridosha. The biggest impact of Triphala is restoring Jatharagni and doshic balance. This blend encourages elimination of toxic residue from the digestive tract which in return increases the colon’s absorption function.
Triphala promotes digestive regularity. So, if your digestion is trouble-free you can actually enjoy your life to the fullest.
