Ancient Ayurvedic remedie
Triphala (or three fruits) is probably the most favourite of all Ayurvedic formulas for it is a complete body cleanser.
Not only does Triphala help to detoxify and cleanse the colon, it also purifies the blood and removes toxins from the liver.
Other cleansing benefits of Triphala include reducing some forms of cholesterol (serum cholesterol), and lowering high blood pressure.
Triphala is a mixture of three fruits and therefor has a high nutritional value, including high levels of vitamin C.
It is also found to have high antioxidant qualities, and is even useful for treatment against noise and stress induced conditions.
The fruits are Harada, Amla, and Bihara:
Harada is best known for its laxative qualities as well as being an astringent and antispasmodic; it also calms nerves and quells anxiety.
Amla, which is high in Vitamin C (20 times more than citrus fruit) is considered good for inflammation of the stomach and intestines; this fruit plays an important role in boosting the immune system and working as an antioxidant ridding the body of free radicals.
Bihara is rich in protein (40 percent) and oils (35 percent), and is particularly high in the omega 3 essential fatty acid, linoleic acid; it purifies the liver and blood.
