Avesta Triphala
Standardized Triphala, 50% tannins

The Science of Triphala:
The digestive benefits of Triphala (Terminalia bellerica, Terminalia chebula and Phyllanthus emblica) may be due to:
- Binding to a digestive hormone linked with occasional gastrointestinal upset
- Increasing bile acid excretion, and helping to maintain cholesterol levels already within the normal range.
- Scavenging free radicals (antioxidant activity)

Dosha Guide?In Ayurveda there are seven basic body constitutions resulting from the predominance of one or more energetic influences or Doshas. The Doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, influence physical, mental and spiritual health. Everyone is considered to be a unique combination of these three body influences. Your natural Doshic state of balance is called Prakruti. Triphala has been traditionally used for digestion, strengthening and rejuvenating tissues and helping to balance the Doshas.

Myrrh gum resin (Commiphora myrrha):
An excellent astringent and antiseptic used topically for apthous stomatata, bedsores and herpes, and as a gargle for strep throat, laryngitis, and pyorrhea. Taken internally myrrh stimulates white blood cells and is specifically indicated for acute infections of the mucus membranes of the throat, stomach, and bowels.

Spilanthes fresh herb (Spilanthes acmella):
Also known as Paraguay Cress or Toothache plant. It is rich in chemicals called isobutylamides which act as immune stimulants and antibacterial and antifungal agents. It can also be used as a local anesthetic to the mouth, gums, teeth and throat. Spilanthes inhibits spirochetes and is useful for urinary tract pain.

Thyme herb (Thymus vulgaris):
Contains an essential oil, Thymol, which has significant antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, and antiviral activity.

Goldenseal dried root (Hydrastis canadensis):
A strong antiseptic and antifungal. It has a strong effect on the liver, stimulating bile formation and expulsion.  Useful in cases of upper respiratory infection including tonsillitis, strep throat, sore throat, sinus infection, post nasal drip and uvulitis where there is excess mucus. Goldenseal has a long tradition of use as a local antibacterial, especially to the skin, throat, sinuses and urinary tract. Rich in alkaloids, especially the intense yellow colored berberine, this herb has shown activity against a wide range of pathogens including Staphylococcus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, E. coli, Chlamydia trachomatis, Candida albicans, Leishmania donovanii, and Entamoeba histolytica.  Because it is bitter, Goldenseal will stimulate digestion and absorption, but long term use will impair digestion by killing beneficial flora in the gut. In clinical trials, Goldenseal was beneficial in the treatment of hypochlorhydria, chronic cholecystitis, acute gastroenteritis, bacillary dysentery, cervical erosion and conjunctivitis. Overuse of Goldenseal can also affect liver and kidney functions, so it is best used sparingly on a short term basis, combined with substances that normalize bowel flora such as fructo-oligerosaccharides (FOS) and acidophilus.

Full-bodied, like a fine black tea (without the caffeine!).
