Triphala is recommended and used more than any other Ayurvedic herbal formulation. Popular for its unique ability to gently cleanse and detoxify the system while simultaneously replenishing and nourishing it, this traditional formula supports the proper functions of the digestive, circulatory, respiratory, and genitourinary systems. Translated as “three fruits,” it is composed of the dried fruits of amalaki, bibhitaki and haritaki.

Containing five of the six tastes (all but salty), 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.  
Triphala is tri-doshic – good for all constitutions!

Ayurvedic Energetics:

  • Rasa (taste): sweet, sour, pungent, bitter, astringent
  • Virya (action): neutral
  • Vipaka (post-digestive effect): sweet
  • Doshas (constitutions): Balancing for all doshas
