Triphala, an ancient herbal blend, is one of the most commonly used herbal remedies in the Ayurvedic system of healing. Ayurvedic medicine originated in ancient India and has developed over thousands of years, and is one of the oldest systems of healing. Thus Triphala is one of the longest used herbal remedies in the world. Triphala, meaning ‘‘three fruits,’’ is made from the fruits of three trees that grow throughout India and the Middle East, including amla fruit (Embelica officinalis), bibhitaki fruit (Terminalia belerica), and haritaki fruit (Terminalia chebula). In preparing Triphala, these fruits are dried, ground into powder, and then blended; all according to the precision of Ayurvedic tradition together.

Triphala is taken as a general health tonic, useful for all body types and a variety of conditions. It is commonly prescribed to tone and strengthen the digestive system, particularly in cases of weak digestion and constipation, and has a mild laxative effect. Triphala is a gentle laxative that can be used daily and is not habit-forming, and has no adverse effects on the intestinal flora (the micro-organisms that aid digestion). It is said to improve the function of the stomach and intestines, and is also prescribed for cases of excess stomach acid. Triphala regulates and detoxifies the bowels, improves overall health by increasing the efficiency and absorption of digestion, and reduces gas. It has a balancing effect on the body’s metabolism, and is prescribed to restore appetite.

The herbal compound also helps the body to eliminate excess fat, by improving metabolism. Because of its gentle properties, Triphala is recommended as a digestive aid for the elderly and for those with sensitive stomachs. In addition to restoring the balance of the digestive tract, Triphala is used as a blood builder and purifier, and may increase red blood cell count and haemoglobin levels.

Triphala is believed to strengthen the kidneys and liver, and is prescribed for hepatitis sufferers. Triphala is a source of vitamin C and is believed to improve the function of the immune system. The herbs in Triphala have anti-inflammatory properties. The remedy is prescribed for gout, a form of arthritis caused by excess uric acid in the body, and other inflammatory conditions. Triphala is said to have a calming and tonic effect on the nervous system, and is recommended for Alzheimer’s disease and other degenerative disorders of the nervous system.

Another use for Triphala is to strengthen the eyes, particularly in cases of cataracts, glaucoma, and conjunctivitis. It can be used as eyewash and may reduce soreness and redness in the eyes. Triphala can also be applied topically to the skin, to speed the healing of bruises and sunburn.


Triphala is not recommended during pregnancy or nursing, and should not be used with cases of diarrhoea and dysentery.


The use of Triphala may increase intestinal gas at first, a possible by-product of the cleansing and detoxification effects in the digestive tract.


Loose stools or diarrhoea may indicate too high a dosage, and the amount ingested should be reduced.
