Triphala is an ancient herbal remedy with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effects. Triphala may have various health benefits, such as improving oral and digestive health and supporting skin healing. In Ayurvedic medicine, the body has three types of energy or doshas. Practitioners believe healing and balancing the three doshas can help a person achieve optimal health. Some believe that the ingredients in Triphala support all three doshas.
