- Formulated by Michael Tierra L.Ac, O.M.D
Planetary Herbals Triphala is a potent, yet gentle formula designed to support the body's natural cleansing process. Michael Tierra learned about Triphala while studying Ayurveda in India and subsequently introduced it to the United States. It has been one of the most important formulas of Ayurvedic herbalism for thousands of years. Used as a household staple throughout India, Triphala is a balanced blend of three Indian herbal fruits: harada, amla, and behada. This formula is unique in that the astringent qualities of the fruits serve to tonify the colon, thereby promoting internal cleansing naturally.
Stir 1 level teaspoon of powdered Triphala into a cup (8 ounce) of hot water. Wait until powder settles and then drink the liquid. The same powder can be used a second time. Drink two times daily, and then discard the sediment. For best results, use between meals.
Note: If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or breastfeeding, consult your health care professional before using this product. Excessive use of teas can cause discoloring of teeth due to tannins. Rinse mouth with fresh water after drinking teas.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Packed by weight, not by volume. Some settling may occur.
Do not use if either tamper-evident seal is broken or missing. Keep out of the reach of children.

†Daily Value not established.
This is not the normal proportion used for triphala. It has the right herbs but the proportion is wrong. Because it is very astringent it is very drying. I felt like it does tone and strengthen the colon but because most constipation is from vata derangement and one of it's main qualities is dryness this compouned my problem. It would probably be good if your constipation was due to kapha derangement because of the toning effect.

Triphala is an ayurvedic formula that is said to be good for all doshas.. (body types). it's good for digestion and if you swish the Triphala (in solution) around your mouth, it's very tonifying for the gums. I'm taking it for some digestive issues and also for my oral health. It's not easy to find in this powder formula.. thank you, iHerb!
