Triphala, widely used by natural Ayurvedic healers in India for thousands of years, contains 3 different fruits: Harada, Amla and Bihara. The word “Triphala”literally means “three fruits”. The combination of these three fruits cleanses the gastro-intestinal tract in a natural and gentle way. Basically our “bathroom experience” becomes a better one 🙂 That is the best way I can put it!!
Why should we cleanse?
It’s always a good idea to cleanse! Get rid of toxins that build up in our bodies so that our bodies can function most efficiently and have that bright glowing skin we all crave and want! More energy and feel less bloated!
And I’m not talking about cleansing with juicing or not eating. No no, that’s a whole other conversation. I absolutely believe in still eating a healthy diet while “cleansing”/taking Triphala.
I have suggested Triphala to many clients, students and friends and all of them have seen results. You can call it a form of laxative if you’d like but this is totally safe and gentle on the body. Yes, we are all different but seems like this one might be a miracle worker and work for everyone!
Suggested use: Take one pill before bedtime. *Take on and off for a period of time OR once in a while when you feel you need it. I usually take it when I feel I need a cleanse- about one or two times a week (usually when I have consumed a bigger meal or more food than usual).
