Practical Uses of Triphala Powder
Recommended dosage is 1 teaspoon. If you wish to take more you should gradually increase it. Place one rounded tablespoon for purging effect or one level teaspoon for mild cleansing into one cup of water or fruit juice and let it sit over night or at least 2 hours. Triphala has a strong taste, so it is easier if you drink it with juice or even better is to place some honey on the tongue before swallowing each gulp. About 45 minutes later, if you are doing purging or break fasting, drink 1 litre of slightly salty warm water. This will flush through the intestines and help remove what the Triphala has loosened from the intestinal walls. There should be many evacuations shortly after. If nothing happens, it means you are very clogged up with toxins so you may need to increase the dosage.
Not recommended for acute diarrhoea or during pregnancy. Very underweight persons should avoid using this product as it will decrease weight.
