Triphaala Churna an incredible ayurvedic remedy for a range of disorders

Triphaala is one of the most common and widely-used ayurvedic preparation. In traditional ayurveda, Triphaala is defined as a Tridoshic Rasayana. This means that Triphaala is a therapeutic agent that has balancing and rejuvenating effect on the three constitutional elements: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Triphaala is composed of the three Myrobalans (fruit bearing plant): Haritaki or Terminalia Chebula Retz, Aamlaki or Terminalia Bellerica Roxb and Bhibhitaki or Emblica Officinalis Gaertn. Generally the preparation consists of equal quantities of pericarps of the three myrobalans. Terminalia Chebula Retz and Terminalia Bellerica Roxb have warm energy and Emblica Officinalis Gaertn has cool energy, so the combination of the three has an overall balancing effect on the body.

Therapeutic properties of Triphaala Churna


In Ayurveda practice Triphaala is used for digestion related disorders like poor assimilation of food, cleansing of colon, constipation etc. It is also used for cardiovascular disorders like blood pressure, serum cholesterol reduction, ophthalmic problems, liver dysfunction etc. Triphaala also helps in purification of blood and improvement of mental faculties.

Clinical studies that prove the effectiveness of Triphaala

Numerous clinical studies have been conducted to determine the pharmacological properties of Triphaala. In one such study, mice were fed on cholesterol rich diet for a period of 48 days, following which the mice became hypercholestremic. A constant doze of Triphaala given to these hypercholestremic mice for a period of 48 days resulted in a reduction of cholesterol levels.

Triphaala has also been found to be a super scavenger of free radicals. Free radicals are produced in the body during metabolism, and improper diet as well as lack of exercise leads to higher accumulation of free radicals in the cells. Free radicals are known to cause cardiovascular diseases, central nervous system diseases, autoimmune disorder and cataracts. Triphaala removes free radicals from the body through a process called antioxidation, thereby preventing excessive accumulation of free radicals in the body.

Another study shows that physical and bio-chemical changes observed in arthritic animals returned to near normal conditions after oral consumption of Triphaala. A study has also found that Triphaala significantly reduces benzo (a) pyrene induced stomach papillomagenesis in mice. Benzo (a) pyrene is directly linked to cancer, so reduction in its level shows that Triphaala has excellent anti-cancer properties.

How to acquire Triphaala Churna?

Most ayurveda practitioners prepare Triphaala based on the instructions found in the ancient text Sarangadhar Samhita. The ancient recipe is called Triphaala Guggulu and the commercially available product is called Triphaala Churna, which is availed at any Ayurveda store.

For best results we recommend that you take Triphaala Guggulu without preservatives.

While Triphaala has many therapeutic properties, we advise you not to take Triphaala without consulting an Ayurveda practitioner. An ayurveda practitioner tries to gauge the nature of imbalance in one’s body and accordingly prescribes a medication.
