Paste PallathurNo. 20/5, Main Road, Pallathur, Karaikudi Tk, Sivagangai District, Editorial and Peer Review Process Alternate-opposite The chemical components of WETC were identified using an Agilent 1100 series high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara, CA, United States). Samples (10 μL in 90% methanol/water) were injected into the HPLC connected to a Gemini C18 column (5 μm; 250 × 4.6 mm; Phenomenex, Torrance, CA, United States) at room temperature. Data were acquired with ChemStation software (version A 10.01). The column was eluted at a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min using 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile (solvent A) and water (solvent B). The following gradient program was employed: 0–5 min, linear gradient from 100 to 95% B; 5–40 min, linear gradient from 95 to 60% B. Eluting compounds were detected at 276 nm. For quantification of WETC, pure reference compounds (punicalagin, geraniin, and gallic chebulic, chebulagic, and chebulinic acids) were dissolved in methanol/water (9:1) at a range of concentrations between 12.5 and 1000 μg/mL to generate a standard curve from the corresponding peak areas. The samples were analyzed under identical conditions, and the concentrations of each compound in WETC were determined by extrapolating from the standard curve. To confirm the chemical compositions of WETC, mass spectrometric analysis was performed using an ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (UHPLC-HRMS). For analysis, 5 mg WETC dissolved in 1 mL 90% methanol solution were analyzed on an LTQ Orbitrap XL linear ion-trap MS system (Thermo Scientific Co., San Jose, CA) equipped with an electrospray ionization source. The separation was performed on an Accela UHPLC system using an Acquity BEH C18 column (1.7 μm; 100 × 2.1 mm; Waters, Milford, MA, USA). The mobile phase conditions contained 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile (solvent A) and water (solvent B). The gradient flow was as follows: 0–1 min, isocratic with 99% B; 1–7 min, linear gradient from 99 to 10% B; 7–10 min, isocratic with 10% B. The flow rate was 0.4 mL/min, and the full-scan mass spectra were recorded in the negative ionization scan mode between m/z 150 and 1,500. An Orbitrap analyzer was used for high-resolution mass data acquisition with resolving power of 30,000 FWHM at m/z 400.
Haritaki or Terminalia chebula is a medicinal herb often known as the mother of all herbs owing to its wide range of health benefits. Its fruit constitutes one of the three main ingredients used in preparing Triphala churna, an Ayurvedic supplement that is popular for its numerous health and medicinal properties. It is actually a very large tree that is found growing in the deciduous forests of India and Sri Lanka. Nowadays it can also be seen in Burma, Nepal, Pakistan, Thailand, and southern China. Haritaki is believed to help in improving the health of the digestive system as well as in curing a number of health conditions. This herb is widely available in the form of supplements in several natural foods stores and also in stores that sell dietary supplements. It can also be purchased online. It is also known by other names like myrobalan, chebulic myrobalan, Indian gall-nut, ink nut, yellow myrobalan, Kadukkai (Tamil), shilikha (Assamese) hardi (gujarati) katukka (Malayalam), harro (Nepal).
From the detailed review, it can be inferred that Haritaki (chebulic myrobalan) is an important plant used in Ayurveda as well as in other indigenous systems of medicine. It is one of the ingredients of the renowned formulation Triphala (Three myrobalans). The mythological origin of the plant represents the immortal nature of therapeutic attributes in the human body. In Ayurvedic and Tibetan literature, the classification of Haritaki varies considerably. However, in both systems, the total varieties of Haritaki accepted are seven.
haritaki is an ayurvedic herb derived from the seeds of Terminalia Chebula tree. It is a drupe-like fruit, oval in shape with size varying between 2 – 4.5 cm in length and 1.2 – 2.5 cm in breadth having 5 longitudinal ridges. Depending upon its variety, it turns green – blackish in color when ripens. Haritaki fruit tastes sweet, sour, bitter depending upon its types. There are 7 types of Haritaki: Vijaya, Rohini, Putane, Amruta, Abhaya, Jivanti, Chetak.
Nithyananda reports that most people doing this evaluation, experience a huge difference in their understanding and ability to cognize deeper truths when taking Haritaki. The same applies for the IQ test. Most people report that they see an increase in their IQ scores when they reduce the junk food eating and include this yogic super brain food in their diet.
Haritaki is considered be an effective tonic for the digestive system. It improves digestion and helps your body to absorb all the nutrients from the digested food. It has strong laxative properties and is also used to detoxify the digestive system by getting rid of all the wastes and toxic substances formed as a result of metabolism. It helps in curing digestive disorders like constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. The gallic acid found in Haritaki helps in destroying E. coli bacteria in the intestine, thus preventing stomach infection. Haritaki has also been found to be effective in eliminating intestinal worms.

Haritaki contains iron which can help to rectify Anemia and restore serum levels of iron. In Ayurveda, Haritaki is commonly used in combination with other herbs to promote hair growth.
When Nithyananda was a child he had three enlightened teachers who he would learn from. Two were very strict and would ensure that he applied himself to the spiritual studies very diligently. When they were to teach him high level concepts from the ancient scriptures, they would make sure that Nithyananda had taken daily Haritaki before the instruction could begin. As Haritaki can have an unpleasant taste, he asked them why was he required to take Haritaki when other students were not.  They informed him that it was imperative that he understand the deepest meaning possible of the scriptures, as he was to teach the whole world these deeper truths. Ancient use of Haritaki.

Antivirals: Based on in vitro studies, extracts of Terminalia chebula may inhibit human immunodeficiency virus-1 reverse transcriptase (40), and Terminalia chebula and Ledretan-96 (an herbal formula containing Terminalia chebula) may protect against damage caused by influenza A virus (3). Based on animal studies, Terminalia chebula may inhibit replication of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) and murine CMV (MCMV) in MCMV infection models of immunosuppressed mice (41; 42), and the combination of acyclovir with Terminalia chebula Retz. may have strong therapeutic anti-herpes simplex virus type 1 activity in mice (43).

I've only taken it a few days & already have 2 more bottles in my cart for reordering. They need to make a bigger bulk sized bottle with more capsules as I will be increasing my dosage from the beginner (1 in am/ 2 in pm) as I have been pleasantly surprised with the subtle overall better feeling, increased energy & so far I haven't noticed any detoxing effect first thing upon getting up in the morning, at least not yet:-))
