|Triphalia and Its Benefits: A Natural Approach to Health |
Triphala is a popular herbal formula from India, used in the United States as a natural medicament for many conditions. Triphala means “three fruits”, and is made from the fruits of three trees (amalaki, bibhitaki and haritaki) that typically grow in Middle East regions. The fruits are dried, made into powder, and blended together. It is part of the Indian vegetarian diet and commonly used by natural healers that practice traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine.
Triphala has many benefits. It is known for its cleansing properties, as it removes toxins accumulated in and near the joints. By removing the toxins through the blood stream, triphala prevents joint and muscle pain, arthritis and rheumatism. This herbal formula is also known to help maintain the proper levels of cholesterol in the body, lowering blood pressure and hypertention, thus, reducing the risk of heart disease.
In the United States, it is widely used as a weight management aid, as virya (a compound in triphala) activates the mobilization of excess fat stored throughout the body, promoting muscle gain and fat-burning. It is also a good digestive aid, as it increases the amount of hydrochloric acid and other good enzymes, aiding in the digesting process in the stomach, it strenghtens the digestive system. It is also an intestinal stimulant, a mild laxative that helps proper bowel evacuations and effective detoxification of the body.
It is a popular remedy for eye-related problems, improving the vision and strenghtening the muscles of the eyes. Also, it is effective against congestion and headaches. It is widely used in India as a food supplement (like vitamins are used in Western countries), as it is a good source of vitamins, like vitamin C.
Natural medicine has been the source of health and well-being in the Middle East for centuries, and it is slowly gaining popularity in our Western society, as a natural approach to health.
