Mother Nature’s Amazing Ayurvedic Energiser

A popular folk saying in India says , “No mother? Do not worry so long as you have triphala.”

The recipe for this traditional Ayurvedic herbal supplement dates back thousands of years and is referenced in the traditional Indian Ayurvedic texts the Charak and Sushrut Samhitas. Triphala is considered a ‘tridoshic rasayan’, having balancing and rejuvenating effects on the three constitutional elements that govern human life: Vata which regulates the nervous system, Pitta which maintains metabolic processes, and Kapha which supports structural integrity.

Triphala is one of the most popular herbal remedies in Ayurveda which ‘cleanse’ by promoting bowel movement. A reason is that one of the most common problems among many individuals is constipation and bowel irregularity. This can lead to poorer general digestion and liver function, less vitality and perhaps even less optimism and an overall poorer outlook and quality of life.
