Triphala is derived from the following three fruits: amla, haritaki and bibhitaki. Dried powder from these three medicinal plants are mixed in equal parts to make a proper triphala powder (or churna). Each of these fruits has medicinal value on its own so combining the three into triphala can give you all of the individual benefits and more.*
Amla (Emblica officinalis) is also commonly known as Indian gooseberry and has been one of Ayurveda’s most prized rejuvenators for centuries. The fruit is very high in vitamin C and is used either alone or in combination with other plants. While useful for all doshas, it’s said to be particularly effective for balancing the Pitta dosha.*
Haritaki or Harada (Terminalia chebula) is also called the Tibetan “king of medicine.” Haritaki is widely used in the traditional medicine of India and Iran to treat a variety of health issues.*
Bibhitaki (Terminalia bellirica) is another powerful ancient rejuvenator with detoxifying qualities. This fruit is known for benefits to the dosha known as Kapha.*
