Triphala, formulated by Ayurvedic Practitioners thousands
of years ago is considered the most effective and safest laxative. Triphala is
mild, non-habit forming, and a rejuvenative.
Triphala is so effective because its three herbs are
potent healers. Triphala is considered a 'tridoshic rasayana', having balancing
and rejuvenating effects on the three constitutional elements that govern human
life: Vata which regulates the nervous system, Pitta which maintains metabolic
processes, and Kapha which supports structural integrity. Triphala uniquely
cleanses and detoxifies at the deepest organic levels without depleting the
Triphala combines both nutritional as well as blood and
liver cleansing (detoxifying) actions. This makes Triphala one of the most
valuable herbal preparations in the world. A popular folk saying in India is,
No mother? Don’t worry so long as you have Triphala. The reason is that Indian
people believe that triphala is able to care for the internal organs of the
body as a mother cares for her children.

of the few tridoshic herbal
treatments in ayurvedic medicine. A tridoshic herb or herbal combination is one
which has the power to alleviate problems with all three doshas. Triphala,
meaning three-fruit, is composed of the three fruits Amalaki, Haritaki, and
Vibhitaki. Each of these three fruits is very powerful in themselves rendering
their combination a traditional standard for many ayurvedic regimens. The
essence or rasa of each ingredient is
particularly disposed to the calming of one of the three doshas, and together
they work synergistically to bring overall balance to the patient. Lets take a
closer look at each of these fruit individually, and then begin to uncover the
power which is unleashed by their unique coordination in Triphala.
Amalaki is traditionally known as ‘The
Nurse’ for her broad and potent healing effects. She bears five of the six
tastes enabling her to treat a great variety of ailments, and is one of the
very rare fruit to be tridoshic all by herself. Though she bears five tastes
she is primarily sour, with a sweet vipraka
(post-digestive effect), and a cooling virya
(energy). Amalaki’s sweet effects and astringent tastes give her nutritive
and rejuvenative actions which are effective with all tissue types, both
internal and external.
Due to her sweet vipraka and cooling virya
she is known to moisten the digestive system and be a refrigerant. This makes
her particularly well suited for the treatment of Pitta imbalance, as this is generally
manifest as an excess of heat and dryness in the body. Although, being
tridoshic, she is also helpful to restore moisture to the lower digestive tract
due to her sweet vipraka, a common
effect of Vata imbalance, and yet its pungent, bitter, and astringent tastes
help to dry excess moisture in other parts of the body. Though this may seem
like a contradiction, it is important to remember that vipraka or post-digestive effect will only effect one after
digestion in the lower portions of the gasto-intestinal tract. The wisdom and
subtlety of this Nurse has much to be admired.
Haritaki is likewise a plant renowned for
its great healing power. She takes her name both because she carries away
(harate) all diseases, and because she is sacred to Shiva (Hara), and is known
as “The King of Medicines” elsewhere in eastern medical traditions. As Amalaki,
she bears five of the six tastes, all except salty. However, conversely her
primary taste is astringent, vipraka
sweet, and virya heating. This
combination makes it particularly well suited for aggravated Vata, as the
sweetness brings moisture to the lower bowels and its heating energy helps to
revitalize the excessive cold of such conditions. It is known to increase
awareness and have nutritive and restorative effects on the central nervous
system, both of which are helpful to one suffering from overactive Vata.
Haritaki is also one of the very few
tridoshic herbs, and has a wide range of applications. She is used to treat
skin disorders, even leprosy, in addition mal-nutritive disorders like anemia
and anorexia. She is also used as an expectorant and to treat chronic coughs
and excessive secretions of mucus. Yet further she has been shown helpful to
reduce flatulence, and for the expulsion of gastro-intestinal parasites such as
worms. She has a history and range of use which far exceeds the limitations of
this brief description, and needless to say she is a powerful ally in this
Vibhitaka in Sanskrit means ‘one who keeps
you away from the diseases’ or literally ‘fearless’ of all diseases. Her small
dry fruit has a powerful drying, astringing and strengthening effect on mucus
membranes all throughout the body, but particularly in the lungs, intestines
and urinary systems. It has an astringent taste, a heating energy, and a sweet vipraka (post-digestive effect). This
combination is a powerful for Kapha imbalance, which removes excess buildup in
the respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems by liquefying them and expelling
them. In particular, it is effective in dissolving stones in the urinary tract,
and removing parasites in the digestive tract. Though its primary function is
to balance Kapha aggravation it is also tridoshic. It has a laxative effect
which is useful in treating Vata conditions of the lower digestive system as
well as causing a toning of the stomach and encouragement of the appetite
without aggravating Pitta. Externally, vibhitaka is known to promote hair
growth and to be an anti-septic useful in the treatment of small wounds and
In addition, recent scientific analysis has
shown all three of these to have high levels of vitamin C and anti-oxidants.
For example, one Amalaki fruit contains 3000mg of vitamin C which is in a heat
stable form that is not compromised during processing, this is as much as
two-dozen oranges! Other research has shown each to have potential for use
against cancer and several other severe and chronic diseases.
Now that we have seen what each of these is
by themselves, let us take a look at the beautiful and potent union they make
in the prized rasayana Triphala. Each of them is tridoshic in itself, and this
provides a firm and broad foundation for their combination and its application.
However, their union is not simply a redundant amalgamation, but rather a
synergistic marriage of three well rounded individuals whose particular
strengths support and compliment eachother. Amalaki is tridoshic, but her sweet
and cooling energies give her the power to rein in excess Pitta. Haritaki is
again tridoshic, but her sweet and heating energies give her reign over the
wiles of flown-away Vata. Finally, vibhitaka, likewise tridoshic, has the
particular disposition to open the gates and flush out Kaphic build-up.
Together these three layer their individual tridoshic powers upon their
combined tridoshic power making Triphala the trifecta of tridoshic rasayanas.
Triphala Benefits and Uses: Triphala has many uses, and is a central part of many
formulations. Its effects can be powerful and should be used in moderate doses.
For Triphala tea, or Triphala juice, mix a teaspoon or so of Triphala churna
with boiling water at night and left to cool to be drunken in morning, the
grind not drunken, but is then remixed with more boiling water and left to cool
until evening before eating. It should be drunken on an empty stomach so as not
to disturb digestion. One may also prepare a Triphala tincture, or extract for
use with other herbs in smaller quantities. Triphala eye washes are also quite
effective for cleansing the eyes and killing infections. Organic Triphala is a
very safe formulation and the best Triphala that one can buy, but is
contra-indicated for those with diarrhea, very thin people, and pregnant women,
as it may be harmful.
Triphala Side Effects: Triphala has been used safely in India for several centuries and it doesn’t have any side effects at all. However
if taken in excessively high doses, weight loss and diarrhea may occur.
