Planetary Herbals Triphala Internal Cleanser -- 16 oz

Traditional Ayurvedic Compound. Herbal Supplement Planetary Formulas Triphala Internal Cleanser™ is a potent yet gentle formula designed to support the body's natural cleansing process. Michael Tierra learned about Triphala while studying Ayurveda in India and subsequently introduced it to the Untied States. It has been one of the most important formulas of Ayurvedic herbalism for thousands of years. Used as a household staple throughout India Triphala is a balanced blend of three Indian herbal fruits: harada amla and behada. This formula is unique in that the astringent qualities of the fruits serve to notify the colon thereby promoting internal cleansing naturally.

Not Bitter
 August 22, 2010
"I expected it to be really bitter based on earlier reviews, I have taken much more bitter herbs. This is really fruity with a hint of bitterness. It really tones the system."

Very Effective Product
 January 11, 2010
"With the understanding that digestion is a multi-staged process and that the taste 'bitter' stimulates the liver, I accept the bitter taste, and say that after the first couple of times it becomes more palatable as the taste buds acclimate. It's worth it! The effect is gentle and assists in a more normal bowel evacuation than a laxative 'purge' and find it more effective than capsules or tablets."

Yuck!
 July 18, 2009
"It tastes awful! If you prepare it and chug it you can manage it. I tried it once...can't bring myself to that torture twice a day! The pills worked just fine, the powder is what is recommended though so I tried it. It doesn't completely "settle" either so you take in chunks!"
