Data on this medicinal plant is available in all Ayurvedic classics as well as in the Nighantus and works on the materia medica of Ayurveda. The details of the plant are also mentioned in Tibetan literature and various floras of medicinal plants. It is found throughout India up to an altitude of 1500 m.[1] Fruit rind is used as medicine and is one of the ingredients in Triphala (three myrobalans). This plant is used externally in wound healing, fungal infections, inflammations of the mucous membrane of the mouth, and internally as a rejuvenative, astringent, purgative, stomachic, and laxative. It is useful in asthma, piles, and cough.[2,3]
Many plants and herbs have oils and volatile oils in their own natural form which is the integral part of the plant and also beneficial for efficacy and potency, so some of the powders may be sticky or oily due to oil content present in them because we at herbsforever do not extract any oil from the plant or do any extraction. Also we at herbsforever do not add any additive or drying agent.
Many of the physical benefits come from the effects that Haritaki has on the gastro-intestinal tract.  As science is proving, a vibrant healthy stomach and intestinal tract means that all the organs such as the liver and kidneys are receiving toxin free content for them to work with. This in turn means that the rest of the body receives blood that has nutritional value, and therefore enhances optimal performance.
Or perhaps these extraordinary actions could also be due to haritaki’s rasayana, or rejuvenative quality. This quality is very supportive to vata and the large intestine (there’s that seat of vata again). Its rejuvenation goes deeper—it penetrates all seven dhatus (tissue layers), providing delicious full-body strength and nourishment, and then goes on to support the proper function of the colon, lungs, liver, and spleen.17 And, as if that wasn’t enough, thanks to its effect in the deepest tissue layer, shukra dhatu (the reproductive tissue layer), it helps to enhance immunity.18
In Buddhism it is included in pictures of the Medication Buddha. He is holding Haritaki in both hands. In one palm Haritaki belongs of Amrita, the Nectar of the Gods, which gives immortality, an incredible benefit! In Tibetan Buddhism Haritaki (chebulic myrobalan, terminalia chebula, and kadukkai) is part of nearly every medicine. It is likewise recognized for its spiritual powers, being called "Supreme Nectar that Brightens the Mind".
As Banyan sources from private farms, it is able to ensure that organic farming methods are followed, and you can therefore rest assured that your herbs have not been treated with pesticides or other harmful chemicals. The fruit contained in our triphala is grown exclusively on certified organic farms. The fresh, ripe fruit is harvested at the optimal time using environmentally sustainable methods that are sensitive to the long-term health of the trees and their surrounding ecosystems.
According to a study published in the 2009 issue of “Cell Biochemistry and Function”, Haritaki may be effective in fighting oxidative stress because of its antioxidant properties. Test were conducted on aging rats and the results showed  that using haritaki for treatment helped in improving the  levels of several powerful antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione and superoxide dismutase. These results suggest that haritaki may be helpful in protecting your body against conditions caused by oxidative stress such as aging and many diseases like cancer.
Triphala is a natural detoxifying formula. As part of the cleansing process it is not uncommon for toxins to be released from the deeper tissues and enter the bloodstream on their way to being ushered out of the body. When many toxins are released at once it can prompt a “healing crisis”. For some people this can manifest as a headache, a rash, or nausea, in addition to gas, upset stomach, and diarrhea.
Terminalia chebula is a tree with a rounded crown and spreading branches. Its principal constituents are chebulagic, chebulinic acid and corilagin. Its fruits have laxative, stomachic, tonic and alterative properties. It is also known as an adaptogen, and hepatoprotective drug. It acts as a gentle laxative and helps in smooth evacuation. It is an effective purgative and helps in removing toxins and fats from the body, resulting in their reduced absorption.
Hepatotoxic herbs: Based on animal studies, a 95% ethanol extract of Terminalia chebula fruit may prevent hepatotoxicity caused by rifampicin, isoniazid, and pyrazinamide (given in combination) in a subchronic mode (12 weeks) (10). Based on studies in rats, treatment and pretreatment of cultured rat primary hepatocytes with an aqueous extract of Terminalia chebula fruit or with HP-1 (an herbal formulation containing Terminalia chebula) may reverse tert-butyl hydroperoxide (t-BHP)-induced cell cytotoxicity and lactate dehydrogenase leakage and significantly lower serum levels of liver enzymes (48; 49; 2).
Haritaki contains Sennosides, known as stimulant laxatives, which are an effective treatment for relieving constipation and cleaning the colon. The process of waste elimination is assisted by Sennosides acting to retain water within the intestines, thus helping to dislodge water matter within the intestines. Sennosides can also be used to eliminate waste from the bowel before an examination or surgery.
One of the highlights the time here is seeing the rapid improvement in third eye reading by the adults and children. Each day more and more people show skills. Today a friend, Sylvia from Vancouver, came to me and told me that she was asked to read with her third eye what another person was thinking. She said that she scanned for about 2 minutes and then saw me. She said,” Dheera?” She was correct, the other person, another friend of mine had decided to visualize me. Sylvia was really happy to have that image appear for her and have it confirmed.

Corticosterone levels: Based on animal study, oral administration of Triphala (a combination of Terminalia chebula, Terminalia bellerica, and Emblica officinalis), at a dose of 1g/kg for 48 days, may prevent increases in corticosterone levels induced by cold stress (8°C for 16 hours per day for 15 days) in albino rats (5). The same dose may prevent increases in corticosterone levels induced by noise stress (100dB for four hours per day for 15 days) (56).

Haritaki contains antibacterial agents that clean the gut of harmful bacteria. Researchers point out that for every hour the human waste stays in the gut the bacteria multiply by many millions. Many of these bacteria are harmful and have been connected with diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Researchers have found that the bacteria penetrate the  intestinal walls, and create cuts. These cuts are similar to the lesions that appear in the brain as part of the onset of these diseases. Very interestingly, these cuts in the intestinal walls are showing up up to 20 years in advance of the cuts appearing in the brain. The conclusion is that the disease spreads through the central nervous system to the brain. Tests for early onset of Parkinson’s are now being conducted by looking into the intestines for signs of these cuts.
