Triphala Powder – Its Many Uses and Properties

Triphala Powder, literally translated as “three fruits” is a traditional Ayurvedic formulation made up of three fruits native to the region. Triphala Churna is often called the “nectar of life” for it’s cleansing, balancing and healing properties in Ayurvedic medicine. The three fruits this blend contains are Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica) and Haritaki (Terminalia chebula).

 

  • Amalaki – The word Amla translates to mean “sour”. Amalaki has a naturally sour taste.
  • Bibhitaki – In Sanskrit, Bibhitaki is known as “Vibheetaki” in which ‘bheeta’ means fear and ‘Vibheeta’ means lack of fear. The whole word “Vibheetaki” means the fruit that takes away the fear.
  • Haritaki – Haritaki has been regarded very highly from ancient times by traditional healers and it is rightly called the mother of herbs.

The Properties of Triphala:

Each fruit in the Triphala powder supports the balance of the ayruvedic doshas. Amalaki has a cooling effect, which manages fiery pitta energy. Bibhitaki is good for kapha, which maintains the fluid balance in the body, so this is helpful to get things moving throughout the body. Haritaki has a heating nature but balances all three doshas but most specifically Vata.
