You may not be able to pronounce it but who cares? Triphala Churna will work its anti-aging magic on you anyway.
Note the Tri in Triphala. This potent Ayurvedic powder is a mixture of three dried fruits from India called Amalaki or Indian gooseberry, Haritaki and Bibhitaki. But its benefits are far more than three.
Let’s see—powerful laxative and colon cleanser, lowers high blood pressure, soothes ulcerative colitis, detoxifies the liver and blood, improves memory, enhances your immune system, helps anemia by increasing red blood cells and may even bring colour back to greying hair.
What about exchanging that dull, aged skin for a healthy, glowing complexion? Triphala churna to the rescue. It helps your blood to circulate so that skin is well-nourished and fewer dead cells form.
And that’s not all. It also helps the body break down and absorb nutrients from food and tempers stomach acidity—no more heartburn or acid reflux!
In addition, triphala also increases the satiety hormone in our body so those of us with a few extra pounds around the middle won’t feel like eating that extra piece of apple pie.
All these benefits surely come with a price, right? Not really, but as with anything else—too much of a good thing is too much. A tablespoon a day is probably all you need.
1. Fill a glass with warm water
2. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the water
3. Add one tablespoon of Triphala Churna and one tablespoon of honey
4. Stir well and drink one glass before bed
Triphala Churna can be found at any Indian grocery store or at health food stores. It’s also available in capsule form.
