Triphala Laxative
For Occasional Constipation
  • Gentle yet effective herbs clear and cleanse the digestive system.
  • Triphala, an ancient Ayurveda formula, is unique. It works by toning and strengthening the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Digestive and laxative herbs normalize function while not promoting dependency.

The solution to the modern problem of occasional constipation is quite ancient: an herbal formula long used in India called Triphala. This three-fruit formula has been used for millennia to tone, strengthen and clear the digestive system while not causing dependency. Triphala Laxative combines Triphala with well-known Western herbs for a gentle yet effective laxative for occasional constipation.

Triphala
Triphala is a combination of three fruits ('tri' meaning three, 'phala' meaning fruits) that is described in the ancient Ayurvedic health text Charaka Samhita (circa 1500 BC) and throughout Ayurvedic literature as a tonifying, strengthening blood cleanser and gentle laxative. Each of the three fruits has specific health properties, confirmed by modern research. The fruit of behada and the rind of harada are known as gentle purgatives. The fruit of amla is a rich source of vitamin C, and the other fruits also contain tannins, lignans, and flavonoids that have antioxidant properties. For thousands of years, this formula has been used in India for healthy digestion and elimination.

Western Laxative Herbs
The power of Triphala is increased with a number of western herbs also well-known for their digestive and eliminative benefits. Marshmallow and licorice root are soothing demulcents that increase healthy intestinal mucosa and ease irritation by moistening the intestines. Ginger aids digestion. Artichoke increases the flow of digestive bile from the liver and promotes intestinal peristalsis by promoting the breakdown of food particles. Cyperus prevents intestinal cramping that can occur from standard laxatives. Cascara, buckthorn, and rhubarb are traditional laxatives used for hundreds of years that promote effective elimination.

Holistic Approach
The balanced, holistic approach of Triphala Laxative is a wise alternative for occasional constipation. The gentle qualities of Triphala combined with the western traditional herbs not only cleanse the colon and intestines but strengthen and tone the GI tract.

Short-Term Use
All laxatives should be used for short periods of time for occasional constipation. Such laxatives should be used in conjunction with a whole food, high fiber diet, plenty of water, and abdominal exercises to promote intestinal health. For long-term promotion of healthy intestinal function, use Planetary Herbals Triphala Internal Cleanser while keeping Triphala Laxative on hand for occasional constipation.

Triphala Laxative™ is a unique combination of the legendary Ayurvedic blend Triphala combined with key intestinal cleansers of Western herbalism for relief from occasional constipation. Unlike many laxatives, Triphala has been used traditionally to strengthen and tone as it cleanses, which helps to restore normalcy, health and efficiency to bowel function.
