Triphala juice has lots of benefits when used in treatment of eye disorders and digestive problems. It also promotes cardiac health and has anti-inflammatory properties.

What is triphala juice

Triphala juice is derived from the triphala formula. The literal meaning of it is “three fruits” in which tri means “three” and phala means “fruit”. The three fruits present in triphala are Amalaki, Haritaki and Bibhikati. A saying is popular in India that an ayurvedic practitioner can heal any disease if he knows how to use triphala properly
The three fruits present in triphala are featured below

·         Amalaki – it is quite a popular fruit and is used widely. The healthcare practitioners in India have been using this fruit since the ancient times for curing different diseases. This fruit has the ability to lower cholesterol. Vitamin C is also present in it. It is beneficial for all doshas (one of the three bodily humors which make up the body’s constitution according to Ayuverdas) but is particularly beneficial for balancing “pitta” (one of the three doshas).
·         Bibhitaki – it is another ancient plant having detoxifying effect on the muscles, blood and fatty tissues of the body. It is quite useful against conditions which involve excess mucous in the system and is quite beneficial for bone formation. This fruit is called as “the one which keeps away diseases” because of its multiple benefits.
·         Haritaki – this fruit is known as the Tibetan “King of Medicine”. Different statues of Buddha show him depicting a handful of these fruits which indicates its long term use in Asia. It is quite beneficial for the heart and brain. It can be used as laxative too but it can also be used as an anti-diarrheal treatment. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent.
