There’s this simple little herbal combo you’ve probably never heard of but you’re about to find out about Triphala benefits and how you can incorporate them into your supplement routine!
What is Triphala
Triphala is a combination of three different fruits from the Indian subcontinent. Emblica officinalis, Terminalia chebula and Terminalia bellerica. In combination, these fruits are a powerhouse antioxidant tank that are ready to steal this show. It supports vision, digestion, colon health, liver detoxification and overall wellness + everything I list below.
What can it be used for (Triphala benefits)
Triphala can be used for a variety of things but most commonly is gastrointestinal disorders or discomfort. For example, it’s been shown to be effective for a potential use as:
- free radical scavenging
- appetite stimulation
- gastric hyperacidity reduction
- antipyretic (reduce fever)
- analgesic (pain killer)
- antimutagenic (reduce frequency of mutation)
- wound healing
- anticariogenic (suppress dental carries)
- & chemopreventive effects
In addition, it may promote proper digestion, food absorption, reduce serum cholesterol levels, relax bile ducts, improve circulation, prevent immunosenescence (gradual deterioration of the immune system), maintain homeostasis (balance within the body) of the endocrine system and produce more red blood cells.
Dang, where can I get some of this on tap?
How it works
Since it boats a long list of “can helps” I figured I would talk about how this amazing plant works its magic. With the help of a few nutrients, it’s able to be the all start no-one every talks about.
Tannins, gallic acid, ellagic acid, and chebulinic acid are all potent antioxidants that may play a role in the immunomodulatory effects of Triphala. It contains flavonoids, saponins, anthraquinones, amino acids, fatty acids, and various carbohydrates because no complex plant is ever made up of JUST fat, carbs or antioxidants. The whole picture matters.
Additionally, that chebulinic acid I mentioned above is turned into bioactive metabolites in our guts and may prevent oxidative damage. Since oxidative damage can lead to DNA changes, free radicals and a complete imbalance in our cell redox it’s important we take precaution.
Basically, that’s a lot of big words saying it’s an antioxidant powerhouse and you’ve probably never even heard of it!
Where do I get mine
Like the vast majority of my supplements, I get my Triphala from Nutrigold. I love their products and recommend them to anyone. Seriously, I can’t find another brand that is C.L.E.A.N. certified, organic, 100% non-synthetic and beyond third party tested. They’re the real deal. On top of that, you can use my code SIMPL10 for 10% off their online store.
The importance in quality supplements.
I talk about this often on my Instagram but incase you aren’t over there (you totally should be, come follow me!) here’s why you need to pay close attention to supplements.
- yellow color
- red color
- blue color
- magnesium stearate
- corn, canola, soybean oil
- artificial flavors
- natural flavors
- synthetic forms of a nutrient
Your challenge for the day is to go through your supplement counter and look for the ingredients I mentioned above. If you have supplements with these ingredients, it’s best you toss them out and replace them with high quality supplements that are actually working. To be honest, there’s nothing I hate more than expensive pee. Then, make sure you try out this new supplements and reap the Triphala benefits!
