Triphala is a blend of three fruit and herb preparations. It’s a natural mixture that aids in digestion, constipation, bloating, and various stomach disorders.

Triphala is a multi-herbal formulation that has been used for centuries to maintain health and vitality.

How to Use Triphala?

Triphala is a combination of three fruits or herbs “Haritaki, Bibhitaki and Amalaki”. In Ayurveda, it is known as Tridoshic Rasayana, i.e., a therapeutic agent that balances all three doshas – Kapha, Vata and Pitta.

It is a rich source of antioxidants such as vitamin C, which helps in building immunity. Taking Triphala supplements on an empty stomach before bed can be beneficial for internal cleansing because of its detoxifying property. Triphala churna also helps in weight loss, as it shows a significant reduction in energy intake and body fat. Its consumption also protects from certain heart diseases because of its antioxidant property. Triphala powder, when taken with milk or intake of Triphala capsules, also provides relief from constipation because of its laxative property.

A paste of triphala and coconut oil can apply to the face to improve the skin texture and enhance skin elasticity because of its anti-ageing property. Triphala is also considered good for the eyes because of its antioxidant activity, which helps improve eye health. Triphala helps to control hair fall and promotes hair growth when applied to the scalp because of vitamin C.

Triphala is safe for all skin types, but if you have dry skin, it is advisable to use Triphala with coconut oil. Excessive intake of Triphala might cause diarrhoea.

Why take Triphala?

Triphala is a traditional Indian Ayurvedic tablet that can treat digestive disorders, improve digestion, and detoxify the body. If you want to use Triphala as part of your daily routine, it’s important to first consult with a doctor or a qualified herbalist.


Triphala is the most common Ayurvedic formulation that is used to get relief from constipation. Constipation is caused because of an aggravated Vata dosha. This can be due to frequent consumption of junk food, excess intake of coffee or tea, sleeping late at night, stress, and depression. All these factors aggravate Vata in the large intestine and cause constipation. Taking Triphala helps to relieve constipation because of its Rechana (mild laxative) and Vata balancing properties.

Dosage of Triphala for constipation
  • Take ½- 2 teaspoons of Triphala Powder.
  • Swallow it with lukewarm water, preferably at bedtime, to get rid of constipation.
Weak immunity

Triphala is widely used for increasing immunity to fight day-to-day health issues. This is because of its Rasayana (rejuvenating) property.

Dosage of Triphala to boost immunity
  • Take ½ – 2 teaspoons of Triphala powder with honey in the morning after taking light food.
  • Repeat this daily to boost your immunity.
Liver problems

Triphala helps to correct liver problems. According to Ayurveda, the liver has a close relationship with Agni (digestive fire) and Pitta dosha. Any imbalance in Agni and Pitta dosha leads to liver impairment. Regular intake of Triphala helps to balance Agni and Pitta because of its Tridosha (Vata-Pitta-Kapha) balancing property. It keeps the liver healthy because of its Rasayana (rejuvenating) nature.

Dosage of Triphala for liver problems
  • Take 2-3 teaspoons of Triphala juice.
  • Add the same quantity of water.
  • Drink it before taking food once or twice a day.

Triphala is one of the safest Ayurvedic formulations to reduce weight. An increase in weight is because of unhealthy food habits and lifestyle which lead to a weak digestive fire. This increases the accumulation of Ama, causing an imbalance in meda dhatu, and resulting in obesity. Taking Triphala helps to remove Ama because of its deepan (appetiser) and Pachan (digestive) properties. It also corrects the imbalance of meda dhatu. Triphala also removes waste material from the intestine because of its Rechana (mild laxative) property.

Dosage of Triphala for obesity
  • Take ½- 2 teaspoons of Triphala Powder.
  • Swallow it with lukewarm water, preferably at the bedtime, to control obesity.
