The benefits of Triphala (group of three berries) include improving digestion, reducing signs of ageing, detoxifying the body, aiding weight loss, strengthening the immune system, managing diabetic symptoms, and optimizing nutrient uptake efficiency. The three constituents of Triphala are as follows:
HAREETHAKI (Terminalia chebula)
The fruit itself is high in certain antioxidants, such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E; it’s also thought to help increase concentrations of several antioxidants in the body, including glutathione and superoxide dismutase, which fight oxidative stress. Certain animal-based studies have suggested that compounds within Haritaki can potentially help treat high blood sugar, insulin resistance, high cholesterol and other factors related to metabolic syndrome. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it may have neuroprotective effects that can help prevent memory loss and improve mental performance.
AMALAKI (Emblica officinalis)
It supports healthy metabolism, digestion, and elimination and promotes anti-inflammatory properties that cool, tone, and nourish tissues and organs. Amalaki nourishes the heart and respiratory system and assists natural internal cleansing, and maintains regularity. It is a natural antioxidant and promotes healthy eyes, hair, nails, and skin.
VIBHITHAKI (Terminalia Bellerica)
As such, it is used in all types of Kapha imbalances and is especially helpful in supporting the organs and tissues where Kapha tends to accumulate. These include the lungs, liver, and urinary tract as well as the sinuses, ears, eyes, and throat. It is extremely astringent in taste and has the qualities of being dry and light, all of which help to balance the inherent damp and heavy qualities of Kapha. Bibhitaki also helps maintain balanced body fluid levels while toning and cleansing the colon.
