Triphala Ghrita is a ghee-based Ayurvedic medicine, which is considered useful in panchakarma (detoxing program). It is made by mixing various herbs which provide multiple benefits. The core ingredient used in this is Triphala which is in itself a mix of three ingredients (Haritaki, Vibhitaki, and Amalaki).
Triphala Ghrita is frequently used for the treatment of eye problems like eye pain with itching, other eye and eyelid-related diseases. It is also used to manage hair fall, weak immunity, and Pitta-related problems. Triphala Ghrita when taken orally gives relief from the symptoms of constipation. It works by balancing the aggravated Vata and Pitta which are a leading cause of digestion-related problems. Some Ayurvedic practitioners recommend applying Triphala Ghrita on the eyelids in the morning and in the evening.
Triphala Ghrita is known to have Rasayana (rejuvenating) properties which can help improve immunity and promote longevity. Increased immunity helps to fight against infections in the body and prevent recurrent seasonal infections. Along with that, Triphala Ghrita helps to remove dirt and excess dryness from the scalp when applied externally, thus promoting hair growth.
So far, no major side effects have been reported with the use of Triphala Ghrita, but self-medication should be avoided. Therefore, consult a doctor before using Triphala Ghrita.
