What is a good source of triphala?

You can find triphala in powder form or tablet form. Triphala powder has a strong taste, so it may be easier to use the tablets at first. You can take triphala every evening, one hour before bed, as part of your weight-management regimen.

For the Triphala Treat, if you find the powder has too strong of a taste for you, just take two triphala tablets.

Triphala Treat

To 1/2 cup of warm water, add the following ingredients:

1/2 tsp of triphala powder
1 tsp unflavored, uncolored psyllium fiber
1 tsp ground organic flaxseed

You can easily find the triphala powder and tablets online, in a health store or Indian store for about $10 to $20.
