Take the sieved water and wash your eyes with it. This helps in keeping your eye healthy and also away from infections.

5.  Fix Weight Management Problems

Triphala powder helps to detoxify and improve the digestive system.

A poor digestion and assimilation usually leads to impaired absorption of the necessary nutrients that the body needs. To fulfill those requirements, the body stimulates more hunger.

Eating processed food that are high in carbohydrates during these hunger pangs ultimately leads to the excess fat storage.

Using Triphala regularly can help break the weight gain cycle by getting your digestive system working again to absorb the nutrition you need, and thus reducing the amount of hunger you feel due to a lack of nutrition.

It also strengthens the colon tissues which in turn helps in the easy elimination of toxins and metabolic waste.

It aids in lowering the cholesterol. These are a few ways by which regular intake of Triphala is beneficial for effective weight management.

Another possible explanation could also be that intake of triphala energizes the body which allow users to have the energy they need to exercise more and burn more calories, leading to additional weight loss.

How To Use?

Mix 1 tsp of Triphala Powder with 1 tsp of honey and take it before bed.
