Triphala – not just a laxative…

Triphala is one of the most popular and widely used Ayurvedic herb in India. It’s now catching up in the West as a gentle bowel tonic, helpful in digestion and supporting regular bowel movements.

It caught the limelight when it was featured by Dr OZ  as a natural remedy for bloating and constipation without any side effects!

I personally use Triphala on a regular basis for general detoxification and have experienced many positive benefits of healthy appetite, complete digestion and weight loss.

Did you know you can use Triphala as your natural toothpaste? Check this video from Banyan Botanicals .

I buy my Triphala in a powder form from Banayan Botanicals  which sells USDA certified organic Ayurvedic herbs in powder and tablet form. Like using this herb in a powder form, because it is in it’s natural state with no added additives and you get to taste all the five tastes on your tongue. It is important for your body to recognize the bitter, pungent, astringent taste which unfortunately is not eaten in our daily diet. I would recommend you to try the powder, you will be surprised to see after a while of using it, your body will start craving for bitter, pungent, and astringent taste. Having it in a tablet form doesn’t allow your senses to play their key role which is a big part in Ayurveda to taste. smell, touch what goes inside.

So, give this herb a try to keep you rejuvenated and balanced all your life!! Would love to hear from you, please post your comments on your experience of using this versatile herb.
