Triphala is the most used and the most valuable of all traditional Ayurvedic preparations. It consists of three fruits with mildly cleansing and strengthening properties.
* Terminalia belerica(Behada) eliminates excess Water, benefiting the heart, circulation and lungs;
* Terminalia chebula(Hirada)eliminates excess Air which benefits the intestines, lungs and nervous system;
* Phyllanthus emblica (amla) regulates Fire and is the second highest known source of natural vitamin C.
Besides being detoxifying, especially to the liver, amla is also highly nutritious. Triphala is safe to take year round for eliminating all excesses while imparting strength to the entire gastrointestinal tract. It is the safest and best mild purgative to take on a regular basis and will cause no laxative dependency.
