What is Triphala?
Triphala is one of the most highly prized formulas in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine and it can have some remarkable benefits for your health and appearance.
The name triphala means ‘three fruits’ and it is made by combining preparations of dried and powdered bibhitaki, haritaki and amalaki (commonly known as amla).
Each of these powerful fruits have their own health giving properties but, according to Ayurveda, when they are combined in triphala powder the benefits are amplified.
Triphala is especially revered for its ability to aid in balancing the three doshas – vata, pitta and kapha. In Ayurvedic understanding, imbalances in the doshas can affect you not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well.
