Ayurvedic cures, remedies, and recipes have always stood the test of time. With the increasing awareness about the side effects of allopathy on health, resorting to kitchen herbs, spices, and condiments for treatment has now become an increasingly appealing option. One of the most common remedies prescribed by Ayurveda is Triphala.

Triphala is a combination of two Sanskrit words: Tri, which means three, and phala, which means fruit. Hence, it is a combination of three fruits that are consumed in the dried and powdered form. The fruits are:

  • Amla
  • Bedda or vibhidaka
  • Harad

The three fruits have their own healing properties and are used separately for various treatments. But, together they form an effective combination that treats numerous health problems.

The churna consists of several compounds that include carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, sodium, and gallic acid. About 2.8 grams of Triphala has 10 calories and 3 grams of total fat. These compounds are known to be responsible for various health, skin, and hair benefits.

Let’s look at some of the benefits of Triphala:

Lowers Cholesterol

The churna is known to have a high concentration of oleic and linoleic oils, that help in reducing the risk of heart disease. Linoleic acid is vital in increasing HDL or good cholesterol and decreasing LDL or bad cholesterol.

Reduces Inflammation

Regular intake of Triphala is said to cure external and internal inflammation. This might arise due to poor immunity or lack of nutrients in the body.

Avert Digestive Problems

The superfood is a great laxative that can be used to treat bloating, irregular bowel movements, flatulence, or even diarrhea. It provides nutrition to the entire digestive system, right from the esophagus to the anus.

Helps Relieve Constipation

Triphala assists in regulating our bowel movements. It is rich in medicinal properties that help cure constipation.

Aids in Weight Loss

This superfood is instrumental in weight loss or in removing belly fat. Triphala helps secrete cholecystokinin, a hormone responsible for influencing our brain’s satiety center. This, in turn, enables us to control our appetite.

Improves Immunity
Rich in Vitamin C, Triphala is said to boost your overall immunity and fight infections. It acts as a powerful antioxidant that aids in neutralizing free radicals in our bodies.

Prevents Cancer

Triphala has anti-cancer properties and exhibits radioactive, chemoprotective, and antineoplastic effects. Thus, this natural superfood helps to prevent cancer.

Rejuvenates Skin

The presence of various antioxidant properties in the Aurvedic superfood helps rejuvenates, moisturizes, smoothens, and softens your skin. It clears pigmentation and helps kills the acne-causing bacteria.  For those with dry and flaky skin, consume Triphala to see wonderful results on your skin.

Promotes Healthy Hair

The emollient properties of the Ayurvedic remedy help stimulate hair growth. The superfood locks moisture in the hair, prevents alopecia, and treats stubborn dandruff. You could either consume or apply Triphala as a hair mask to see the difference in your hair and scalp.

Prevents bacterial infections

Take Triphala to arrest bacterial and viral infections. It can also be consumed by people with sensitive digestive systems, as the Ayurvedic remedy does not trigger any harmful allergic reactions.

Even though the natural superfood has a plethora of uses, it is advisable to take only the recommended amount of the churna or tablet. Click here to know our range of malts that are infused with Triphala.

Sakshi Dobhal

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
