|Triphala Internal Cleanser Herbal Formula|
Traditional Ayurvedic Compound
Planetary Formulas Triphala Internal Cleanser is a potent yet gentle formula,
designed to support the body's natural cleansing process. Michael Tierra learned
about Triphala while studying Ayurveda in India, and subsequently introduced
it to the United States. It has been one of the most important formulas of Ayurvedic
herbalism for thousands of years.
Used as a household staple throughout India, Triphala is a balanced blend of
three Indian herbal fruits: harada, amla, and behada. This formula is unique
in that the astringent qualities of the fruits serve to tonify the colon, thereby
promoting internal cleansing naturally. Available in powder, capsules and tablets.
Ayurveda - Promoting Balance in Life
The underlying principle of Ayurveda is helping to maintain health or bring
the system back into balance. Key to this goal is supporting both digestion
and elimination, while providing nourishing and nurturing tonifiers. This approach
contrasts with the often harsh cleansing regimens used in the West, which employ
laxatives, purgatives, and diuretics. These products are purely eliminative
in function and can lead to imbalance by causing laxative dependency or mineral
depletion. Triphala is different!
The Three Fruits of Triphala
- Amla (Emblica officinalis): Amla is one of the most commonly used health-promoting
fruits of India. Also known as Indian gooseberry, it is extremely sour and
astringent. According to the late, two-time Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Linus
Pauling, amla contains the highest concentration of all fruits of heat-stable
vitamin C, noted for its powerful antioxidant activities. Amla is the primary
nourishing component of the Triphala formula.
- Behada (Terminalia belerica): In Ayurveda, behada is classified as sour,
astringent, and warming. Though it is considered the most cleansing of the
three ingredients, it also contains up to 31% linoleic acid and is rich in
- Harada (Terminalia chebula): Of the thousands of Ayurvedic herbs, harada
is the most commonly used. It is considered so precious that it is said "do
not worry if you do not have a mother as long as you have harada." Like
the other fruits, harada is strongly astringent, and is often used for the
health of the mucosa. This three-fruit combination balances each of the different
bodily systems identified in Ayurveda, in order to maintain and restore balance
to the entire system.
Who Can Benefit from Triphala?
The short answer, according to Ayurvedic herbalism, is absolutely everyone.
Triphala is considered the most balanced of all herbal compounds. It is designed
to support normal digestion, assimilation, and elimination which is important
to us all. In the United States it is most commonly relied upon as a cornerstone
to a botanical cleansing program, and to support a healthy bowel system. Triphala
is especially beneficial for those who tend to have a sluggish gastrointestinal
tract due to sedentary lifestyles and overconsumption of red meat, refined carbohydrates,
and dairy products.
