Triphala, called also three fruit, is considered one of the most important dietary supplements and one of the most important Rasayanas in Ayurveda. It consists of the three fruits of amla, haritaki and bibhitaki in equal parts.
Amla cools Pitta, haritaki calms Vata and bibhitaki soothes Kapha. The combination of the three fruits balances all three doshas and theyeby the whole body.
When ghee is herbalised with a herb it becomes a Ghritam and this combining process helps enhance the beneficial effect of the herb.
Triphala Gritam is traditionally used for eye and eyesight problems.
