Literally meaning “three fruits,” triphala is a traditional Ayurvedic herbal formulation consisting of three fruits native to the Indian subcontinent: amalaki (Emblica officinalis), bibhitaki, (Terminalia belerica), and haritaki (Terminalia chebula).

Triphala has also been shown to be a powerful antioxidant, protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals--in accord with Ayurvedic principles, this is related to the synergistic/holistic effects of the components of all three fruits.
