Triphala is the most popular Ayurvedic herbal formula of India, since it is an effective laxative which also supports the body’s strength. It is considered the most effective, safest laxative and colon tonic by most health care practitioners. Where other colon formulas are depleting, Triphala is mild, non-habit forming, and a rejuvenative. It is a composite herbal preparation having equal proportions of the fruits of three Indian trees, with each herb being a potent healer. Amalaki is a strong, natural antioxidant which boosts the immune system, and cleanses the small intestine. Haritaki is a classic heart-brain-longevity tonic, and cleanses the large intestine, or colon, and Bibhitaki is a powerful rejuvenative that reduces liver and heart disease, helps with congestive disorders, and cleanses the stomach. Triphala is gentle for people of all ages and types of constitutions; it tones and strengthens the digestive system, and is prescribed for cases of excess stomach acid. It has a balancing effect on the body’s metabolism and helps the body to eliminate excess fat. Triphala has adaptogenic, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antoxidant, and anti-tumor properties. It nourishes your nervous system, blood and muscle, removes toxins, accumulations, gas and distention, detoxifies every system in the body, and regulates and vitalizes your metabolism. For some, regularly taking Triphala is revitalizing.
