What Does Ayurveda Say about the Benefits of Triphala Powder for Gastrointestinal Health & Immune Support?
In Sanskrit, Triphala literally means (three fruits). This name refers to its unique ayurvedic formula, which combines the goodness of Emblica Officinalis (Amalaki), Terminalia Bellerica (Vibhitaki), and Terminalia Chebula (Haritaki). We use dried organic powder of these fruits to create this herbal blend.
Ayurvedic practitioners regard it as one of the most versatile herbal formulations. They associate it with several health benefits while maintaining a balance between all three doshas (Vatta, Pitta, and Kapha).
Each of its core ingredients is responsible for the benefits of Triphala. Their synergistic actions support gastrointestinal health. It is equally beneficial for immune support, digestive health, and liver care.
The pulp of Amalaki fruit has a high concentration of Vitamin C. This fruit’s cooling potency supports Pitta reduction. It also functions as the main rejuvenator when compared to the other ingredients in this herbal blend.
Similarly, Vibhitaki is another powerful ayurvedic cleanser. It provides toxin removal support for blood circulation, muscle, and fatty tissues.6 Additionally, it stimulates the natural cleansing mechanism inside the body. It bolsters liver functions by supporting the removal of accumulated toxins. It also supports Kapha balance, which is critical for the functioning of other vital organs.
Lastly, Haritaki is a digestive herb. It nourishes the gastrointestinal tract and encourages colon cleansing. Its warmness supports a stable and calm Vata. The combination of these actions aids digestive health. They also support the absorption and assimilation of nutrients, along with maintaining healthy bowel movements.
In addition, the presence of flavonoids and other bioactive phytonutrients help maintain optimal eye health. Overall, Triphala’s tridoshic formula supports optimal health and wellness with its abundant health benefits.
Athreya Triphala is available in capsule form too. We also combine it with other Ayurvedic herbs in the form of herbal ghee and powder.
