Besides nourishing the mind and body and promoting longevity, Triphala is known to be especially helpful in rejuvenating the digestive tract and has a particular affinity for the colon—making it supportive of healthy elimination.

Triphala is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral abilities, and is one of the prescriptions by Ayurvedic practitioners for a wide variety of ailments. These include helping strengthen the immune system and promoting oral health. As a rasayana for colon health, it helps to regulate functions of the colon, which are key to health and well being.

What is Triphala made from?

Triphala is prepared from an equal combination of the three myrobalans, namely Haritaki (Terminalia chebula), Bhibitaki (Terminalia belerica) and Amalaki (Emblica officinalis). Each Triphala Tablet consists of:

  • Amlaki (Emblica officinalis) -- 500 mg
  • Haritaki (Terminalia chebula) -- 500 mg
  • Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica) -- 500 mg

PRESENTATION: 100 Tablets pack in plastic container.

Amla (Emblica officinalis): Has a cooling effect that manages pitta, supporting the natural functions of the liver and the immune system.

More commonly known as Indian gooseberry, amla is one of the oldest edible fruits known to India and plays an important role in Ayurvedic medicine.  Because of its sour, sharp taste and fibrous texture, the berries are often pickled, soaked in sugar syrup or cooked into dishes to increase palatability. Indian gooseberry and its extract are used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat symptoms like constipation and also used in cancer prevention. Indian gooseberries are very nutritious and high in vitamin C, amino acids and minerals and also contain powerful plant compounds like phenols, tannins, phyllembelic acid, rutin, curcuminoids and emblicol. 

Bibhitaki (Terminalia bellirica): Is particularly good for kapha, supporting the respiratory system as well as kapha accumulations in all systems.

Terminalia bellirica is a large tree that commonly grows in Southeast Asia. Known as Bibhitaki in Ayurvedic medicine, the fruit of the tree is used as a treatment for common ailments like bacterial and viral infections. Bibhitaki contains tannins, ellagic acid, gallic acid, lignans and flavones, along with many other powerful plant compounds that are thought to be responsible for its medicinal qualities. This potent herbal remedy has a variety of uses and may help treat a wide array of medical issues but in particular, Bibhitaki has been researched for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Haritaki (Terminalia chebula): Even though it is heating by nature, it is still good for all three doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha) and is commonly known for its “scraping” effect, which removes toxins and helps maintain healthy levels of weight. 

Terminalia chebula is a medicinal tree that grows throughout the Middle East, India, China and Thailand. This plant is known as “Haritaki” in Ayurveda, where the small, green fruit of the Terminalia chebula tree is used as medicine and is one of the main components of Triphala. It is held is such high esteem in Ayurveda that it is often referred to as the “king of medicines’ and has been used since ancient times as a remedy for a number of conditions, including heart disease, asthma, ulcers and stomach ailments.  Haritaki contains phytochemicals such as terpenes, polyphenols, anthocyanins and flavonoids, all of which have powerful health benefits.

Triphala is most commonly known for its use as a gentle bowel tonic, being helpful in digestion, and supporting regular bowel movements. The combination of the three fruits has a synergistic effect to bolster many other systems as well making it a powerful antioxidant, which helps in protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.

An overview

When the bacteria in your gut is out of balance, your body is unable to digest food thoroughly which can lead to serious digestive conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), small bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), constipation, and leaky gut syndrome. Constipation is a very common digestive problem and is defined as having hard, dry bowel movements, or going fewer than three times a week. The main symptoms of constipation are increased difficulty and straining when passing stools. Other symptoms include:

  • Stomach ache
  • Stomach cramps
  • Feeling bloated and nauseous
  • Losing appetite


Tens of billions of microbes in your digestive tract are the master puppeteers of your health making it imperative to keep your gut ecosystem healthy and thriving. Constipation happens when the colon absorbs too much water from the food that is in the colon. The slower the food moves through the digestive tract, the more water the colon will absorb from it. Consequently, the feces become dry and hard. When this happens, emptying the bowels can become very painful. This can occur if the muscles in the colon are contracting slowly or poorly, causing the stool to move too slowly and lose more water.  Some common causes leading to constipation include:

  • Lack of fiber in the diet: People whose diets include a good quantity of fiber are significantly less likely to suffer from constipation.
  • Physical inactivity: Older adults tend to have a more sedentary life compared with younger people and are therefore at higher risk of constipation. Physically active people are much less likely to become constipated than inactive people.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome: People who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) get constipation much more frequently, compared with the rest of the population.
  • Medication: The most common medications to cause constipation are narcotics, pain drugs, antidepressants, aluminum-containing antacids and diuretics, to name a few. 
  • Changes in routine: When a person travels, their normal routine changes affecting the digestive system, which sometimes results in constipation.
  • Overuse of laxatives: Laxatives are effective at helping bowel movements. However, using them regularly allows the body to get used to their action and gradually the dose needs to increase to get the same effect. 
  • Not drinking enough water: If constipation is already present, drinking more liquids might not relieve it. However, regularly drinking plenty of water reduces the risk of constipation.
  • Problems with the colon or rectum: Tumors can compress or restrict the passages and cause constipation. Also, scar tissue, diverticulosis, and abnormal narrowing of the colon or rectum, known as colorectal stricture.

Other causes  
Diseases that can cause constipation include neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury, stroke, or multiple sclerosis; metabolic and endocrine disorders, such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease; bowel cancer; and diverticulitis. A number of systemic conditions, like scleroderma, can also cause constipation. In addition, intestinal obstructions, caused by scar tissue (adhesions) from past surgery or strictures of the colon or rectum, can compress, squeeze, or narrow the intestine and rectum, causing constipation.

An Ayurvedic approach

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems, developed more than 3,000 years ago. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit, and its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. In Ayurveda there are three significant qualities, called dosas - vata, pitta, and kapha -  each having specific impact on bodily functions. Ayurveda classifies constipation as a vatic disorder, because vata (air/Ether) governs movement and elimination (as well as the nervous system).  Any Vata disturbance will cause increased dryness in the body which, in turn, can dry out the wastes (including faeces). Therefore, anything that aggravates this dosha—stress, tension, travel, dehydration, cold wind, exhaustion, or dry, cold, rough foods—can make your constipation worse.
