Triphala is one of India’s greatest herbs. It is made up of three plants: Amla, Haritaki,and Vibhitaki. Triphala contains five of six taste senses– sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, astringent. So as you can imagine the taste is strong and not very pleasant.
Benefits of Triphala:
Supports/ improves digestion
Helps with regular bowel movements
Natural colon cleanser
Cleanses all the channels of the body
How to use:
Add ½ teaspoon of powder to 1 cup of hot water, wait for water to cool and Triphala to settle. Drink. You can also, add ½ teaspoon of powder to 1 tablespoon of honey. You can take drink first thing in the morning , 30 – 45 minutes after a meal.
I prepared my Triphala at night and drank it first thing in the morning. I did this for four days straight and when I skipped the fifth day, I definitely noticed a difference. I felt a heaviness, full feeling after eating that I did not experience on the days I took TriphalaIa. I have also read that if taken at night before bed, Triphala helps improve sleep. I might try that next. I will continue taking and look forward to the results.
