About Herbal Cleansing

Herbal CleansingIn case you rummage around for a good body or colon cleansing product around the market, or on the web, the many that will come to your notice will be herbal cleansing products. In fact, if a plan or product does not happen to be entirely herbal, you will hardly find one that does not use some kind of herbal/plant extract in its cleansing regimen.

Herbal cleansing is an age-old method, which has been employed very extensively for body detoxification. There are many plant extracts that have been used both as preventive and curative means to tackle all types of health conditions – particularly through alternative medicinal systems. Ayurveda is one such alternative system of medicine that has gifted a host of unique treatment options to the world of medicine. Triphala is one of them – almost like a jewel in the Ayurveda crown

What Is Triphala?

Triphala – the word denoting combination of three fruits – is an herbal formulation, which is normally available in powder or capsule form. The individual fruits that are blended to produce Triphala are called amla, harida and bahada (also called Amalaki, Haritaki and Bhibitaki) – all the three plant extracts having exclusive medicinal qualities. Some of these qualities (only those related to their usefulness as good herbal cleansing agents) are:

  • Amla. Amla, a great source of Vitamin C, assists in mending damaged cells located on the walls of the intestinal tract when used as an herbal cleansing agent.
  • Harida. Harida has excellent colon-friendly as well as laxative qualities.
  • Bahada. Aids in breaking up mucus build up so as to destroy bacteria, yeast and parasites infestation – major tasks that any good herbal cleansing product is required to do rather comprehensively.

In addition to its usefulness as an herbal cleansing or laxative product, Triphala is also used extensively for preventive and therapeutic treatment purposes. Even though it originated in India, the product is now available in almost every place in the world, especially after the advent of online sales of these kinds of products.

Benefits of Triphala

As a matter of fact calling Triphala only as a laxative or an herbal cleansing product will probably undermine its other medicinal utility values to a great extent. You name almost any system in the body Triphala can lend you a hand in keeping it fit and healthy.

In addition to the colon and the digestive organs, the various other systems that can benefit from Triphala include the cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, reproductive, skin as well as the nervous systems. In fact it nourishes, cleanses and tones up the entire body most comprehensively.

Regular intake of Triphala can greatly help you in any minor or major conditions including indigestion, liver dysfunction and high blood pressure, etcetera. It helps in improving blood circulation and reducing cholesterol too. Triphala is also known for its exceptional antioxidant, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties.

Make Triphala A Habit

Whether you want to use it as an herbal cleansing supplement or a treatment method, taking it on a daily basis will never harm you. It has no side effects at all and is available at a relatively low cost.

In case you make Triphala a habit, chances are that you may not need any other medication very frequently – above all, any other type of herbal cleansing plan or product to get the bodily wastes as well as the deadly toxins, harmful parasites and unfriendly bacteria out of your colon.
