Triphala is highly regarded and can be used as the foundation of nearly all Ayurvedic herbal protocols because it gently removes vata, pitta, and kapha.

Taken daily, triphala works over time to help bring the three doshas back into balance. It is not uncommon for traditional Ayurvedic practitioners to suggest triphala for nearly all of their clients.

Triphala plays an important role in nearly all Ayurvedic detoxification and rejuvenation programs and is usually taken before, during, and after the cleansing process. It is super effective at cleansing all the channels and rejuvenating to all the tissues.

Triphala supports regular elimination however unlike an over the counter laxative, the body does not become dependent on it. With consistent daily use, detoxification progressively deepens. As the system becomes increasingly clean, triphala continues to work as a rejuvenative. It’s truly an amazing combination.

Many people living an Ayurvedic lifestyle have made daily consumption of triphala a life-long habit. It’s 100% safe.

Because triphala plays a key role in the removal ama (toxins) that can be an underlying factor in many imbalances, it is commonly included in herbal regimens to support digestion, healthy joints, and healthy skin, hair, and bones.

From an Ayurvedic perspective, elimination of toxins from the system is an important component in addressing mental lethargy and fogginess.
