Ayurvedic Indian Medicine - Triphala
Triphala, the internal cleanser that purifies and strengthens
Are you persistently irregular? Yes, you're uncomfortable, but if you're about to reach for the laxatives, stop!
Indian Ayurvedic medicine's Triphala, in Elite's own unique formula, will do much more for you than any ordinary herbal laxative. Triphala is the most popular herbal formula in India, where it's much revered for its powers, and it's becoming known in the West.
Triphala is exceptional because not only does it function as a laxative, it's also an all-round health booster. Triphala will end constipation and make you regular, and it will also completely tone and regularise your system.
Many minor health conditions, like overweight and chronic tiredness aren't illnesses in themselves. However, they are signs of an imbalance in the body. Triphala regularises all your body's systems.
The two kinds of herbal laxative and why Triphala is different
Today many people live a relatively sedentary lifestyle. They work at an office, where they sit all day. They walk to their car, then spend the evening in front of the TV.
It's no wonder that herbal laxatives are so popular. However, as efficient as your laxative may be, it's not helping you to good health.
Let's look at the two main kinds of herbal laxatives: purgative laxatives, and bulk-creating laxatives.
A purgative natural laxative contains herbs such as senna, rhubarb, buckthorne and cascara. They work by stimulating the peristaltic action in the intestine, and can work very quickly and violently.
The other common kind of herbal laxative is one that creates bulk with herbs like such as psyllium and flax seed. These laxatives work by swelling and absorbing water, so that natural peristalsis of the body occurs.
Of the purgatives and bulk-creating laxatives, only the bulk-creators provide any nutrition - and then only a tiny amount.
Triphala is different. Yes, it's laxative, but it's also much more. It's been called the body's own natural mother, because it cares for the body's internal organs like a mother caring for her child.
Amazing Triphala: your key to good health
Amazing Triphala supports every system of your body, including the nervous system, the excretory system, the digestive system, and the circulatory system.
This wonderful combination of Indian fruits is a tonic for your heart, as well as for your liver. It has also been found to be effective in Irritable Bowel Syndrome and colitis.
Triphala starts its work by cleansing and detoxifying your entire body, giving you a fresh start on your journey to bouncing health and vital energy. It tones the digestive tract, so that you never need to feel bloated again.
Triphala helps your digestion: it makes sure that your body extracts every particle of nourishment from the food you eat. This is especially important as we age, because all our systems slow down - Triphala helps your digestion to work smoothly, relieving symptoms like heartburn and gastric reflux, and improving the assimilation of food.
If you suffer from high blood pressure, Triphala has been found to reduce blood pressure.
Around middle age, gall bladder problems, with associated inflammation in the bowel, is a common problem. Since Triphala is both antiviral and antibacterial, it has an anti-inflammatory effect, which relieves pain.
Once you start on Triphala, you'll find that it regulates both constipation and diarrhoea, so that you're never troubled by these common ailments.
How should you use Triphala?
To maintain health, once started Triphala should be taken every day for life, working up to three tablets per day.
Elite's Triphala is the unique formula which has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic herbalism. It formula contains equal portions of three Indian fruits, amla (Embilica officinalis), behada (Terminalia belerica) and harada (Terminalia chebula). You're assured that you're getting the same formula that you'd get if you attended a practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine.
