TriphalaÂ (Sanskrit; triâ=âthree and phalaâ=âfruits) is a well-recognized and revered polyherbal medicine consisting of dried fruits of the three plant speciesÂ Emblica officinalis,Â Terminalia bellerica,Â and Terminalia chebula that are native to the Indian subcontinent. It is classified as aÂ tridoshic rasayanaÂ in Ayurvedic medicine as it promotes longevity and rejuvenation in patients of all constitutions and ages.
The formula consists of the fruitsÂ Amalaki, Bibhitaki, andÂ HaritakiÂ of the three plants generally in equal proportions and has been used in traditional medicine in India for over 1000 years according to the writings of the great physician Charak in a foundational text of Ayurveda called theÂ Charaka SamhitaÂ as well as in another key text called theÂ Sushruta Samhita. According to Charak, taking theÂ Triphala RasayanaÂ (TriphalaÂ with honey and ghee) daily has the potential to make a person live for one hundred years devoid of old age and diseases.Â The physician Sushrut indicated that the formula is useful for treating ulcers and wounds.
As both Ayurveda and Western medicine agree that health and disease begin in the gut,Â TriphalaÂ represents an essential foundational formula as it promotes efficient digestion, absorption, elimination, and rejuvenation. Numerous references in well-respected Ayurvedic medical texts make clear thatÂ TriphalaÂ is revered as a multiuse therapeutic and perhaps even panacea historically (1).
