Triphala is a traditional remedy from Ayurveda, the ancient medicine system of India. “Triphala” literally means “three fruits”; it is a balanced mixture of the fruits of Emblica officinalis (“Amalaki” in Hindi), Terminalia belerica (“Bihara”), and Terminalia chebula (“Harada”). No botanical remedy is recommended as often in the Ayurvedic medical texts as triphala. It was prized as a cleansing and detoxification formula dating back thousands of years.
Harada (Terminalia chebula) possesses laxative, astringent, lubricant, antiparasitic, antispasmodic and nerve calming properties. Amalaki (Emblica officinalis) has traditionally been used to treat ulcers, inflammation of the stomach and intestines, constipation, diarrhea, and promotes healthy liver function. Bihara (Terminalia bellerica) reduces excess mucus, providing support in lung and bronchial conditions, and relief from allergies. Triphlax-750 is a high dose of triphala and benefits those who want a natural and gentle formula to improve digestion, relieve constipation and promote detoxification. Triphala is also useful in weight management, since it can stimulate the release of the satiety hormone while boosting gastrointestinal function.
AOR’s Triphlax-750 provides equal proportions of all three ingredients found in the original triphala formulation, delivering health benefits for the colon and detoxification.
Triphlax-750 is triphala, which is traditionally used in Ayurveda to support digestion by relieving digestive upsets and disturbances, as well as restoring regularity and relieving constipation.

Dyspepsia & Ulcers
One study found that Amalaki is as effective as antacids in treating dyspepsia (epigastric discomfort), but slightly superior in supporting the healing of those ulcers.
Better Than Certain Drugs for Gastric Motility
Another animal study exmined the effect of Terminalia chebula on gastric motility/gastric emptying compared with metoclopramide, known to increase motility, and with atropine, known to reduce it. Terminalia chebula increased gastric motility 10% more than the metoclopramide. The authors suggested that these results offer the use of Terminalia chebula as an alternative to other drugs on the market that enhance gastric motility.
An in vitro study has also shown that triphala is lethal to a variety of gastrointestinal pathogens, including bacteria such as Salmonella typhii, Shigella, Klebsiella and Pseudomonas, and fungi like Candida albicans. In vitro, bihara has antihelminthic properties, destroying intestinal worm parasites.
Blood Sugar Balance
One animal study found that Triphala reduced blood sugar in diabetic rats, and that improvements continued with subsequent dosing.
Satiety & Obesity
One recent molecular finding may explain triphala’s traditional use in treating obesity. CCK, or cholecystokinin, is a satiety hormone, released to tell you that you’re full, and is especially responsive to fat. Synthetic analogs of CCK are under development by pharmaceutical companies to help people realize that they’re full, thereby controlling appetite and supporting healthy weight. Researchers at the BRA Centre for Biomedical Research found that active molecules in triphala bind to the cellular receptor for CCK. The last point is important, since both overeating and obesity disrupt digestion and overburden the gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and bowel. As a result, digestion is compromised, leading to poor nutrient assimilation, imbalances and overgrowth in the intestinal microflora, and putrefaction of ill-digested food. For such conditions, triphala can be highly effective in removing stagnation of both the liver and intestines.
