Herbs : Triphal
English NameThree Fruits formula
These are all fruits. Each plant has a different therapeutic value and must be prepared in its own way for maximum benefits.
This "herb" is actually a mixture of three Ayurvedic fruits in equal proportion: Amalaki (Emblica officinale), Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica) and Haritaki (Terminalia chebula).
Traditional Ayurvedic Uses
- Triphala is very commonly used for digestion and regularity. It is often too strong for westerners, and should be used sparingly and with other herbs to balance its possible heating effects.
