Triphala, an effective bowel cleanser, is a very popular Ayurvedic herbal formula in India. Because of its high nutritional value, Triphala cleanses and detoxifies without depleting the body's reserves.
Triphala combines both nutritional as well as blood and liver cleansing actions. It possesses some anthroquinones which help stimulate bile flow and peristalsis. The nutritional aspect is more in the form of its high Vitamin C content, the presence of linoleic oil and other important nutrients which it makes more of a tonic. Triphala has been proven useful for occasional constipation. Since the body is always simultaneously involved with maintaining and gaining strength through good nutrition as well as eliminating waste, Triphala is unique in that it is naturally able to support both vital processes simultaneously. Excerpted from The Wonders of Triphala: Ayurvedic Formula for Internal Purification Dr. Michael Tierra L.Ac., O.M.D.
Triphala combines Amla C (Emblica officinalis), Belleric Myrobalan and Chebulic Myrobalan, the key in effective bowel cleansing and detox around the world for over 5,000 years.
