Ayurvedic medicine and Triphala
David W Bates www.therapiesguide.co.uk

 

Triphala “three fruits”. is an ayurvedic herbal formula that consists of three Indian fruits

  • Amalaki works as a natural antioxidant and removes excess inflammation from the body. It also helps to increase lean body mass and maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
  • Haritaki supports the body’s natural cleansing process by gently removing toxins that accumulate in the colon.
  • Bibhitaki is particularly effective in reducing the accumulation of fat and fluids in the body.

The three fruits of Triphala (Harada, Amla and Bihara) each correspond to the "three humours" or "doshas" of Ayurvedic medicine.
Vata "wind" which corresponds to the mind and nervous system. Its nature is dry, cold, light and activating.
Pitta "fire" is responsible for all metabolic transformations including the digestion and assimilation of food as well as clarity of thought and understanding, pitta is primarily hot, moist and light.
Kapha
"water" is responsible for all anabolic or building functions such as the development of muscle and bone tissue. Its nature is cool, moist and heavy.

One of the most known herbal preparations and the most popular Ayurvedic herbal formula in India,
Triphala is commonly known for its digestive benefits, particularly its ability to help gently cleanse the system, considered a gentle laxative, triphala is often used to stimulate digestive health, improve liver and gallbladder function.
Studies have shown that Triphala :-

  • Is an antioxidant.
  • Improves digestion .
  • Improves circulation .
  • Is anti-inflammatory.
  • Is an Expectorant
  • Is rich in vitamin C.
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Possesses antiviral and antibacterial qualities


You can take Triphala in powder form or tablet form.
The traditional way of ingesting Triphala is as a tea. This method allows one to taste the herb fully, and taste is considered by Ayurveda to be an important part of the healing process. Stir in two or three grams of the powder with warm water and take each evening or divide into three doses to take throughout the day.Triphala powder has a strong taste so honey or other natural flavourings can be added


A popular folk saying in India:
"No mother? Do not worry so long as you have Triphala."
