Triphala guggulu powder is an Ayurvedic blend consisting of five herbs: guggulu, amalaki, bibithaki, haritaki, and pippali. In Ayurveda, this polyherbal combination is associated with the digestive system. Triphala guggulu powder has a strong taste and is generally consumed mixed with honey or ghee.

The five herbs in triphala guggulu create a complex, effective herbal blend that is esteemed in Ayurvedic medicine. It is considered a primary herb for digestive concerns, a cleansing herb, and is used occasionally as a mild laxative.

Triphala guggulu powder consists of guggul gum resin, triphala and long pepper. This powdered blend is made by first boiling the guggul gum to purify the herb and release all bio-assimilable constituents. It is then combined with a decoction of triphala and long pepper and boiled until the mixture becomes semi-solid. The contents are dried in an oven at controlled temperatures, cooled down, then powdered. Due to the sticky nature of the product, it is normal for the powder to have some congealing.

Triphala guggulu powder has a resinous, aromatic, astringent, and tart flavor with a mildly sweet aroma. Traditionally, this polyherbal blend is taken in warm water or most compatibly with honey or ghee, both of which digest slowly in the stomach for optimal efficacy.

Our triphala guggulu powder is blended with organically cultivated botanicals in India. The powder is a combination of five Ayurvedic herbs: guggulu, amalaki, bibitaki, haritaki, and pippali. Guggulu, also referred to as guggul gum, is a resinous substance often added to herbal combinations. It is used as a cleanser and to “scrape the channels”. Triphala means “three fruits” and is the combination of equal parts amalaki, bibitaki, and haritaki fruits (common names amla, beleric myrobalan, and black myrobalan, respectively). It is said to contain all six Ayurvedic tastes (sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent) in proper proportion and thus appeal to all three doshas. Pippali, or long pepper, is used as an alterative. The combination of these herbs creates a synergistic blend that has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic practices.

Powder can be encapsulated or mixed with warm water, ghee, or honey. Can also be applied topically.
