Organic Traditions Organic Triphala
Triphala is one of the most important herbal preparations in Ayurvedic Medicine. In Sanskrit, Triphala means “three fruits” and true to its name, it is a blend of three fruits: Amalaki or Amla, Bibhitaki and Haritaki. Believed to restore balance to all three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, it is one of the most used tonics in Ayurveda for whole body cleansing and balancing. Triphala can be used for daily, gentle cleansing and detoxification, for promoting regularity, and for optimal digestive health. According to the energetic principles of Ayurveda, Triphala contains 5 of the 6 tastes and is sweet, sour, pungent, astringent and bitter in the Rasa taste energy, neutral in action according to Virya and balancing for Vata, Pitta and Kapha constitutional doshas, thereby bringing balance to the entire body. It is considered a wonderful daily herb to support general well-being, vitality and health.

How To Use In The Kitchen And On-The-Go:
While most supercritical extracts are only available in a liquid form, Organic Traditions proprietary technology offers this dual-extraction in an easy to use, semisoluble, free flowing powder. The powder is extremely concentrated. Adjust the amount for your needs and for each unique application.
⅛-¼ of a teaspoon of Full Spectrum Triphala powder can be added to 8-16oz. water, coconut water, any beverage, smoothie or recipe. Make warm tea-like infusions by adding the powder to warm water (not boiling) and a natural sweetener of your choice such as Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup or Organic Traditions Coconut Palm Sugar. A cup of Triphala tea (do not use hot or boiling water – lukewarm water is fine) with Yacon or Coconut Palm Sugar is particularly wonderful as a daily digestive tonic or during times of stress and exhaustion. It is excellent as a daily tonic. In traditional Ayurveda, Triphala is often prepared in a milk decoction or combined with Ghee. You can choose to use almond milk or any other non-dairy milk as an alternative.
Please note that Triphala has a very tart and sour taste and so use very little and combine with a sweetener of your choice.
Lastly, make a mouth and gum rinse or gargle by adding ⅛ of a teaspoon to ½ cup of warm water. As a gargle it combines well with Organic Traditions Full Spectrum Cinnamon and Ginger.
