  • Triphala Herbs

    Just wanted to share below a good article about Triphala


    A blend of three botanicals, triphala is a popular remedy in ayurveda (the traditional medicine in India). Triphala contains dried and powdered fruits of amla (Emblica officinalis), myrobalan (Terminalia chebula), and belleric myrobalan (Terminalia belerica), all of which are medicinal plants.

    Considered a gentle laxative, triphala is often used to stimulate digestive health, improve liver and gallbladder function, boost immunity, ease inflammation, and manage chronic conditions like asthma. It's also commonly found in supplements that claim to detox or cleanse your system.

    The Health Effects of Triphala

    Test-tube studies have suggested that triphala offers antioxidant, bacteria-killing, and immune-enhancing benefits. And in animal-based research, scientists have shown that the herbal blend may help keep cholesterol in check.

    In other studies on animals, triphala has demonstrated anti-cancer effects. A report published in 2008, for instance, found that feeding triphala to mice helped suppress the growth of pancreatic cancer cells. It's important to remember, though, that animal studies do not prove equal effectiveness in humans.

    Triphala for Detox
    Although ayurvedic practitioners often use triphala to promote the cleansing of toxins from the body, there's no clinical-trial-based evidence that the formula can act as a detox or w

    Side Effects of Triphala
    In some cases, triphala may trigger gastrointestinal side effects such as gas, stomach upset, and diarrhea.

      I also want to share about Triphala:which translates literally to “three fruits”, is a powerful combination of three of the most important Ayurvedic fruits: Myrobalan, Amla, and Belleric Myrobalan.

        Hi Everyone,
        Triphala (Three fruits of Amla, Bahera, and Harrad) is a potent anti-oxidant which leads to the destruction of dead skin cells and appearance of fresh skin. This unique scrub with khas khas and avocado gently removes the dead skin cells and impurities.
