Triphala Churna – The antidote to the Western Diet – Body cleanse

Triphala Churna is one of the most commonly used herbs in the ayurvedic health system. Ayurveda is the 5,000 year old Indian (Hindu) traditional system of health.


“Triphala”, which means three and “Churna”, which means powder is used primarily as a digestive aid for

  • colon cleanse
  • constipation
  • flatulence
  • to stimulate the digestive system

In addition, it is used for

  • stimulating the immune system
  • diabetes
  • skin issues
  • eye issues


Triphala Churna is made out of three ingredients

  1. Amalaki (Emblica officinalis) a.k.a Amla; Indian gooseberry
    • has detoxifying effects
    • high in Vitamin C
    • good for the eyes
  2. Haritaki (Terminalia chebula) a.k.a. Harad
    • strengthens the immune system
    • good for the eyes
    • benefits the skin
  3. Bibhitaki (Beleric Myrobalan) a.k.a Bahera
    • purifies blood
    • fat cutter
    • hair tonic
    • strengthens the immune system

How to use it?

Take a glass of water, mix in one tablespoon, let it sit for a few minutes and drink.


How does it taste?

I take it without any sweeteners and it is an acquired taste, somewhat bitter.  Using sweeteners would probably improve the taste a lot.
