So I took my friend to the Indian market today and I always end up getting a few things of my own to snack on. Today I saw Triphala Juice for a reduced price, and decided to get it since it is something I've always wanted to try. I remember lots of Indians telling me about it being good for something, and when I looked up what it is supposed to be beneficial for, there was a LONG list! I know that it is healthy, but does it really do all that it claims? What has been your experience with Triphala?

Although I'm a firm believer in natural remedies, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, I have never heard of Triphala. I did read up on it and found it's mostly used as a cleanser or laxative. I believe the claims about it. I've found many things in nature work as well or better than modern medicine. I would like to try it except that I don't really want anything with a laxative effect. But it is very interesting.

My dear friend in your discussion you have not mentioned about Triphala and about its composition so I would like to add few more points about that.As Triphala is an Indian term many of our friends may not understand what exartly it is.Triphala is a herbal mixture consisting of equall part of Myrobalan(without seed),Bibhitaki and Haritaki.Form ancient time people in India have been using this for proper digestion,assimilation and as a detoxifying agents.It has effective laxative action and promote smooth bowel evacuation.It has also antioxidant property and reduces oxidative stress and also boost the immunuty. In my family we have been using this from long time for gastric related problem.Try not to buy this mixture or liquid from market as sometimes they may be fake.We used to prepare it at home and its prparation is very easy.
