Triphala is an ancient Ayurvedic formula combining Amlalaki, Bibhitaki and Haritaki fruits. Triphala literally translates as ‘three fruits’. Amalaki fruits are likened to gooseberries and are produced from small trees that are native throughout India. The fruits are a naturally high source of Vitamin C with polyphenols and have a characteristically sour and bitter taste.
Triphala has long been revered in Ayurvedic traditions as a rejuvenating and restorative combination.
An effective antioxidant that reduces inflammation. Amla, also known as Amalaki or Indian Gooseberry, is a small fruit-bearing tree that is indigenous to India. The small, gooseberry-like fruits have a very sour taste and are a part of the Indian diet because of their ability to nourish health. These small-but-mighty fruits are hand-collected in India either by climbing the tree or shaking the branches to catch the bounty.
Improves peristalsis by strengthening the mucous membranes of the digestive tract. The fruits from this often HUGE tree produce astringent tasting fruits that have a long history of use in India. These soft, brown fruits are an essential ingredient in the famous Triphala (Three Fruit) formula. This supplement is the ‘go-to’ for all things digestive and a favourite at Pukka.
Contains laxative compounds to ease mild constipation. Haritaki is one of the triumvirate of fruits used in the famous Ayurvedic formula, Triphala and, as such, is a firm favourite across the world. In fact it is so highly revered that in illustrations of the Medicine Buddha, he is holding a haritaki fruit.
Spirulina has been around for a long time, evolving over three billion years ago and is one of the earliest life-forms on Earth. And it’s no wonder it’s survived so long with its incredible nutritional profile; spirulina contains 60% protein, is packed with beta-carotene and other vitamins and minerals, is high in GLA (or Gamma Linoleic Acid to give it its full name) and contains a remarkable blue-green pigment called phycocyanin.
