Benefits of Triphala Guggulu

Heart : Cardiac pain from atherosclerosis, angina, chest congestion. Triphala guggulu has many clinical trials attesting to its ability to reduce cholesterol. Also used for oedema of the heart and the whole body.

Gastrointestinal tract : Poor digestion with ama and kapha like symptoms; slow digestion, low metabolism, tiredness, obesity. Helps with deep seated toxins and long-term constipation as it corrects the flow of apana vata downwards in the digestive tract. It has a traditional use for treating haemorrhoids and fistulas via its agni-enkindling effect. It both stimulates digestion and scrapes toxins away. It corrects medas-dhatu-agni to enable lipid tissue to metabolise nutrients efficiently.

Lungs : Used in congested lung conditions to clear excess kapha from the plasma and chest; asthma, bronchitis, phlegmy cough. Also for sinus congestion, nasal drip and rhinitis.

Immunity : Used as part of a strategy to strengthen the whole system by removing the causes that necessitate a response to accumulated pathogens; combats allergies, repetitive colds, boils and infections in kapha types by strengthening agni and clearing mucus toxins.

Arthritis : Triphala guggulu treats rheumatoid and osteoarthritis that have symptoms that are aggravated by cold, wet, damp conditions when vata and ama have accumulated. It has a specific action on slesaka kapha and the synovial fluid in the joints.
