Officinalis), Bibhitaki Fruit (Terminalia Belerica) and Haritaki Fruit (Terminalia
Chebula). Triphala is actually the end product of the three herbal fruits combined.
Triphala emanates from three other herbal fruit-bearing plants - the Amalaki, Bibhitaki
and Haritaki. It was said that the formulation of Triphala was first conceived in
India thousands of years back.

nature, properties and usefulness. From those studies, it was found that Triphala
is indeed a modern day wonder designed to cure a long list of ailments, which include
those which requires a lot of money.
