What is Harvest Naturals Triphala Powder?

The three ingredients that make up Triphala are Amalaki, Bibhitaki, and Haritaki are native to India. The mix has received attention from researchers for its natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and adaptogen properties; it also may assist as a digestive remedy.

Triphala contains a secondary use as a benefit to the immune system through its antioxidant properties.
