  • Adaptogen; helping the body adapt to stress, allowing for an increased tolerance to mental exhaustion, enhancing attention and mental endurance.
    Immunomodulator; strengthening, balancing, supporting and regulating the immune system, optimising immune response.

    Triphala is a combination of three fruits, each is used within Ayurveda for its own action, but when combined the three make a well known and popular combination — Triphala — either used on its own or as part of a decoction with other herbs to make specific treatments. Traditionally Triphala has been used to support digestion and as a rejuvinative to support vitality, detox and respiratory system.

    Modern research has confirmed the traditional term 'Rasayana', describing Triphala as an adaptogenic herb, containing potent anti-oxidants, supporting eye health, the immune system, circulatory system and the digestive system — all key to nourishing vitality.


    Amalaki (Amla)

    Of the three fruits Amalaki (Amla) and is a potent Ayurvedic Rasayana (adaptogen) used to promote vitality and impact all 3 doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha). Modern research has found that Amla is high in anti-oxidants, potentially vitamin C (nearly half a gram per 100g) and help regulate the immune response, support the liver and aid cognition.
     

    Haritaki

    Haritaki is described within Ayurveda as 'remover of diseases' and is a sacred plant, suggested to be the herb for the digestive system, rejuvenating the body, aiding longevity and enhancing the effects of other herbs taken with it. Research suggests that the anti-oxidants within Haritaki may be used as an effective anti-bacterial mouthwash, eye wash and digestion.
     

    Bibhitaki

    The fruit Bibhitaki is traditionally said to be the 'one that keeps you away from disease', given this name as it is able to nourish the immune system, used to rejuvenate the lungs, benefit the eyes and hair, cleansing and supporting the digestive and urinary system, acting as a diuretic and laxative.
