Benefits of Triphala
Triphala or Triphala churna is a traditional herbal formulation made from the dried powder of three different fruits. The name comes from combining the Sanskrit words “tri” meaning three, “phala” meaning fruit and “churcha” which means powder. Used for well over 2,000 years, Triphala is a staple of Ayurvedic medicine. In India, it’s considered the greatest and most versatile of all herbal formulations.
Triphala is most commonly known for its use as a gentle bowel tonic, anti -histamine and anti inflammatory, being helpful in digestion, and supporting regular bowel movements. The combination of the three fruits has a synergistic effect to aide in many other systems as well. In addition to the GI tract, Ayurveda uses Triphala to support healthy respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, reproductive, and nervous systems. Triphala has also been shown to be a powerful antioxidant, protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. The three fruits involved in making Triphala are also known for their individual effects.
Because of its high nutritional content, Ayurvedic doctors generally do not regard Triphala as a mere laxative. Some of the scientific research and practical experience of people who have used it down through the ages has demonstrated that Triphala is an effective blood purifier that stimulates bile secretion as it detoxifies the liver, helps digestion and assimilation, and significantly reduces serum cholesterol and lipid levels throughout the body. As a result, it is regarded as a kind of universal panacea and is the most commonly prescribed herbal formula.
Other cleansing benefits of Triphala include reducing some forms of cholesterol (serum cholesterol), and reduces high blood pressure.
