Triphala extract has been used in traditional medicine in India for over a thousand years. Triphala in Sanskrit means- Three Fruits.(Tri = three and Phala = fruits). It is a well-recognized and revered polyherbal medicine consisting of dried fruit extract of the three plant species Emblica Officinalis (Family Euphorbiaceae), Terminalia Bellerica (Family Combretaceae), and Terminalia Chebula (Family Combretaceae) that are native to the Indian subcontinent. Triphala represents an essential foundational formula as it promotes efficient digestion, absorption, elimination, and rejuvenation.
It is classified as a Tridoshic Rasayana in Ayurvedic medicine meaning that the energetics are appropriate for Vata, Pitta, and Kapha or all types of patients. It is known to promote longevity and rejuvenation in patients of all constitutions and ages.
The major constituents of the formula are the tannins, gallic acid, ellagic acid, and chebulinic acid, which are potent antioxidants that may account, at least in part, for the observed immunomodulatory activity of the formula. Triphala also contains other bioactive compounds such as flavonoids, saponins, anthraquinones, amino acids, fatty acids, and various carbohydrates. Ayurvedic medicine uses Triphala as a pillar of gastrointestinal treatment; however, the complexity of the three rasayanas, or rejuvenating herbs, in the formulation allows for many applications. Moreover, studies have validated a number of potential uses of Triphala, which include free radical scavenging, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, appetite stimulation, gastric hyperacidity reduction, dental caries prevention, antipyretic, analgesic, antibacterial, antimutagenic, wound healing, anti-carcinogenic, antistress, adaptogenic, hypoglycemic, anticancer, hepatoprotective, chemoprotective, radioprotective, and chemopreventive effects. According to ancient literature, taking the Triphala extract daily has the potential to make a person live for one hundred years devoid of old age and diseases.
