Organic Triphala Powder
One fruit, as it is, can already provide so much nutrition and health benefits. But what if you combine two—or better yet, three fruits—together in one powder? What kind of nutritional power would that hold?
That’s what triphala powder is. It is a combination of the power of three fruits and it comprises one of the oldest and highly-regarded herbal formulas in Ayurvedic medicine. It has been in use for thousands of years and is in fact still being used until today.
What is it?
Triphala, which when literally translated means “three fruits,” is a combination of the fruits behada (Belleric myrobalan), amla (Indian gooseberry) and harada (Chebulic myrobalan). These fruits are all native to India.
Behada has been used in Ayurvedic medicine to clear excess fats and bile, improve tonicity to the tissues and gastrointestinal tract. It was used as a mild laxative.
The Indian gooseberry, on the other hand, is a very sour, astringent fruit. Regular consumption of this fruit promotes vitality and longevity. It was even referred to as the fruit which can care for you like a mother.
In Ayurvedic medicine, the third fruit, Harada, was considered to be the most beneficial. If the Indian gooseberry was believed to care for you like a mother could, Harada can do it even “better than a mother.” In Tibet, this fruit was regarded as the “king of the best of medicines.”
Research and clinical studies on triphala and its health benefits are still currently limited. But it's encouraging to know that triphala contains Vitamin C with the following benefits.
