Is Triphala for Everyone?

Triphala is usually not needed by someone with optimum health of body, mind and consciousness. It is classified as Rasayana or rejuvenating substance, and acts on all Dhatu’s (tissue systems) in due course, with consistent use. Each ingredient has affinity for different channel systems in the body, so together in equal proportions, this combination renders any taste that is absent or insufficient in the blood profile. Fruits are generally not mixed with any other food, so triphala is taken by itself at bedtime (9pm) on empty stomach with warm water. This short presentation on triphala is not at all the entire store of this widely used combination, but gives some hints for now.
