  • Haritaki

    November 23, 2020 1 min read


    Haritaki is an Ayurvedic fruit known for its ability to balance digestion, especially vata type digestion for those experiencing bloating, flatulence and constipation. It has 5 of the 6 tastes - sweet, sour, astringent, bitter and pungent, excluding salty and is great for all three doshas. Haritaki assists in treating inflammation in the body, detoxification and also works as a rejuvenating herb. The powder can also be used to strengthen the gums.

    Haritaki is one of the fruits included in the popular Triphala formulation and many others.

    If you are experiencing digestive complaints and would like to see if Haritaki would be suitable for you, you’re welcome to book in for a consultation with one of our practitioners or students to discuss further.

    From the Lakshmi Team, we wish you a great afternoon!
