Triphala Laxative
  • For Occasional Constipation
  • Gentle yet effective herbs clear and cleanse the digestive system.
  • Triphala, an ancient Ayurveda formula, is unique. It works by toning and strengthening the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Digestive and laxative herbs normalize function while not promoting dependency.

    The solution to the modern problem of occasional constipation is quite ancient: an herbal formula long used in India called Triphala. This three-fruit formula has been used for millennia to tone, strengthen and clear the digestive system while not causing dependency. Triphala Laxative combines Triphala with well-known Western herbs for a gentle yet effective laxative for occasional constipation.

    Triphala
    Triphala is a combination of three fruits (‘tri’ meaning three, ‘phala’ meaning fruits) that is described in the ancient Ayurvedic health text Charaka Samhita (circa 1500 BC) and throughout Ayurvedic literature as a tonifying, strengthening blood cleanser and gentle laxative. Each of the three fruits has specific health properties, confirmed by modern research. The fruit of behada and the rind of harada are known as gentle purgatives. The fruit of amla is a rich source of vitamin C, and the other fruits also contain tannins, lignans, and flavonoids that have antioxidant properties. For thousands of years, this formula has been used in India for healthy digestion and elimination.
