Triphala is a traditional remedy from Ayurveda, the ancient medicine system of India. « Triphala » literally means « three fruits »; it is a balanced mixture of the fruits of Emblica officinalis (« Amalaki » in Hindi), Terminalia belerica (« Bihara »), and Terminalia chebula (« Harada »). No botanical remedy is recommended as often in the Ayurvedic medical texts as triphala. It was prized as a cleansing and detoxification formula dating back thousands of years.
Harada (Terminalia chebula) possesses laxative, astringent, lubricant, antiparasitic, antispasmodic and nerve calming properties. Amalaki (Emblica officinalis) has traditionally been used to treat ulcers, inflammation of the stomach and intestines, constipation, diarrhea, and promotes healthy liver function. Bihara (Terminalia bellerica) reduces excess mucus, providing support in lung and bronchial conditions, and relief from allergies. Triphlax-750 is a high dose of triphala and benefits those who want a natural and gentle formula to improve digestion, relieve constipation and promote detoxification. Triphala is also useful in weight management, since it can stimulate the release of the satiety hormone while boosting gastrointestinal function.
