About Triphala

Triphala is an ancient herbal formulation that comprises three fruits: Amalaki (Embelica officinalis), bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica), and haritaki (Terminalia chebula). The fruits have different properties that complement each other once they are blended. They are precisely mixed in equal proportions to make up the mixture. Some of the popular terms used to refer to the composition include Vara, sresthatamam, and phalatrikam. In certain parts of East India, triphala is also known as myrobalans. The plant extract is obtained after the fruits are dried for ample time and then grounded. The seeds are extracted and do not make up the constitution. 

The haritaki fruit is also referred to as chebulic myrobalan, pathya, abhaya, shiva,harad, harre or haimavati. The fruit contains high proportions of tannin, chebulic and gallic acid. The fruit serves different functions when ripe or unripe. Bibhitaki is also referred to as belleric myrobalan, bahera, aksha, orn kaliphala. The fruit is rich in resin, tannin and gallo-tannic acid. The latter is responsible for the colouring matter present in the fruit. The seeds contained in the fruit produce a yellow oil. The bark of the tree is also used as a herbal remedy. The amalaki fruit is also referred to as amla, Indian gooseberry, awala, aonla amd dhatri. The fruit is rich in essential oils and vitamin C. All the three fruits that make up triphala are found growing on average size to large deciduous trees. 

Triphala has a vast history especially in traditional Indian systems of medicine. The herbal mixture was popularised by the Panjabs and Aryans who had resided in India for numerous years. One of the most prominent faces credited with access and advancement of the triphala plant is Craka, who worked as a court physician in the era of King Kaniska. The latter ruled over Peshawar, in the Kushan Dynasty of the Indian subcontinent, around 100 A.D. During his times as the king’s physician, he described triphala as a mixture that had the ability to extend one’s lifespan. He attributed these properties to the remarkable health progress made by all those who he gave the mixture to take. The fruits which make up triphala were all revered in different measures in ancient times. Haritaki was offered as a gift among royalties, whenever they visited each other. This served as a gift and ensured there were ties between kingdoms and nations, as the triphala gifted was meant to be taken by the receiver. Also, according to spiritual Indian figures, Buddha was seen holding a bowl that had an image of the haritaki fruit on it. The natives referred to the juice from the fruit as the ‘godly drink of life’. Also, on the left side of the Buddha figure, he seemed to be holding a small stem of the haritaki tree, hence affirming its importance in Indian society. Traditionally, individuals took triphala alongside different cuisines as they believed it had the effect of enriching their intestinal flora. It was also taken in smoothies and soups due to its restorative properties.
