    Hi Sazia,

    Triphala sounds a fascinating supplement.

    I was particularly interested in the “taste test” side of it. I’ve come across a zinc taste test before so the concept was familiar, but triphala seems to go above and beyond.

    Thanks for an interesting article.

    Hi Sazia ,
    I never heard the name Triphala, but I recognize the fruits from the picture.
    Will look for the botanical name in my Iranian books to see if I recognize them right.
    Natural remedies are always the best and taken the right way they help much better
    than chemicals and without side effects. Thank you for introducing Triphala ,I learned
    a new name .
