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.
