Organic Triphala is recommended and used more than any other Ayurvedic herbal formulation. This is two-ounces of balls of organic haritake, bibtaki and amalaki, coated with vegetable glycerin and licorice root powder.
Triphala is most commonly known for its use as a gentle bowel tonic, helpful in digestion and supporting regular bowel movements. Triphala has also been shown to be a powerful antioxidant, protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. The three fruits involved in making Triphala are also known for their individual effects to support lungs, urinary tract and for a clear complexion. Two balls a day for children over 8, one for children under 8. a day is the recommended dosage if using the powder (churna). It is fairly bitter to taste--which is part of the healing. Mix with a little warm water, let it sit for a few minutes and drink.

Translated as "three fruits", it is composed of the dried fruits of amalaki, bibhitaki and haritaki. Triphala readily removes excess vata, pitta and kapha from the body, bringing balance and proper functioning to the system. It is commonly taken as a daily supplement to help maintain balance of the doshas. Use daily for rejuvenation and weight loss.
