Triphala, which literally translated means three fruits, is one of the oldest and still most used medicines in the ayurvedic medicine practice.
According to the ancient texts of ayurveda, when the three fruits - Amalaki, Bibhitaki, and Haritaki are combined as Triphala, they form a very powerful rasayana. A rasayana is the most highly refined and powerful herbal and fruit combination in ayurveda, and is known to promote long life and rejuvenation. A rasayana promotes ojas, the material equivalent of bliss. Ojas, according to ayurveda, is the finest product of digestion, and prevents disease, creates luster in the skin and rejuvenates the whole body.
Triphala's oldest historical reference is found in the Sushrut Samhitas, which contains descriptions of over 1,120 illnesses, as well as several hundred types of drugs, made from plants and minerals.
In the first century AD, it was administered by the famous Ayurvedic physician Acharya Charak to the King of the Kushan Empire. Charka prepared Triphala for the King on a regular basis who, as a result, is said to have lived to the ripe old age of 100.
The ingredients that make up Triphala are powerful individually but when combined correctly, synergy enhances the healing quotient exponentially

Triphala is most commonly known for its use as a gentle bowel tonic, being helpful in digestion, and supporting regular bowel movements. The combination of the three fruits bolster many other systems as well. In addition to the GI tract, Triphala is used to support healthy respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, reproductive, and nervous system health. Triphala has also been shown to be a powerful antioxidant, protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. This amazing medicine also promotes healthy lipid and cholesterol levels. Triphala's main action is to promote normal health (rather than treating a specific illness) and is therefore often administered alongside a specific remedy to increase its effectiveness.
