Triphala - The Ancient Secret To Good Health


Around middle age many people cannot resist settling into a sedentary lifestyle. They work at offices where they sit all day. A short walk takes them to their cars or buses; then spend the rest of the evening on a couch in front of the TV.
  • It is no wonder that the common problems among such people are indigestion, constipation, inflammation in the bowels, bloating, overweight, gall bladder problems and so on. Feeling uncomfortable and sluggish, as a result, they often reach for the laxative, only to find that it is nothing more than a temporary relief.
  • Not many people are aware that for thousands of years the Indians have solved similar problems with Triphala – an Ayurvedic herbal rasayana formula consisting of equal parts of three fruits from India: Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Biblitaki (Terminalia Billerica) and Haritaki (Terminalia chebula).
  • Recent medical research conducted by several leading academic institutions in India such as the Bhabha Atomic Research Center and the Jawaharlal Nehru University have revealed that Triphala has a significant medical value as a potential detoxifying and anti-cancer agent.
  • Triphala is a laxative, but unlike other common herbal laxatives, it supports every system of the body, including the nervous system, the excretory system, the digestive system and the circulatory system. It is a tonic for the heart and liver, as well as effective against irritable Bowel Syndrome and colitis.
  • Triphala cleanses and detoxifies the entire body. It tones the digestive tracts, so that you never feel bloated again. It also regulates constipation and diarrhea ending the pain and inconvenience associated with such ailments.
  • Triphala helps digestion. It makes sure that your body extracts every particle of nourishment from the food you eat. This is especially important as we age, because all our internal system slow down. Improved digestion also relieves symptoms like heartburn and gastric reflux.
  • Since Triphala is both antiviral and antibacterial, it has an anti-inflammatory effect that relieves pain. It promotes appetite, increases the number of red blood cells, removes undesirable fat in the body, and has been found to reduce high blood pressure.
  • To maintain continuous good health, once started Triphala should be taken every day of your life, but consult with your physician on how many tablets you should take a day.
