Triphala, an effective bowel cleanser, is a very popular Ayurvedic herbal formula in India. Because of its high nutritional value, Triphala cleanses and detoxifies without depleting the body’s reserves.
Triphala combines both nutritional as well as blood and liver cleansing actions. It possesses some anthroquinones which help stimulate bile flow and peristalsis. The nutritional aspect is more in the form of its high Vitamin C content, the presence of linoleic oil and other important nutrients which it makes more of a tonic. Triphala has been proven useful for occasional constipation.
