"If you are feeling sluggish, dull or constipated, chances are toxins are building up in your body. According to Maharishi Ayurveda, toxins accumulate when your digestion — and elimination — is out of balance, leading to skin breakouts, menstrual cramps, fatigue, depression and many diseases.
Balancing your digestion and elimination is a specialty of Maharishi Ayurveda, and many of our herbal formulas are designed to do just that. Of these, one of the most effective is traditionally called triphala.
Triphala contains three remarkable fruits — Amla berry, Haritaki and Bibhitaki — and each possess the superior healing and anti-aging qualities known as rasayana. Because it contains three elixirs in one compound, it is considered one of the most valuable herbal preparations in the world.
How does it work? A mild laxative, it purifies so gently that when used over a long period of time, it allows even the deepest tissues and organs of the body to release toxins. Despite its powerful cleansing quality, it actually enhances food absorption rather than depleting the body of nutrients.
