Why We Love


Haritaki, also known as Terminalia chebula, is an important herb in Ayurveda. It has been used for centuries to treat various ailments and is considered one of the most powerful herbs in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. Haritaki is a medium-sized deciduous tree that can grow up to 30 meters in height and has alternate, sub-opposite oblong-ovate leaves. The fruit of the Haritaki tree is highly valued for its medicinal properties and is often referred to as the “King of Medicines” in Tibet. It has been used to treat a wide range of conditions such as fever, digestive disorders, skin diseases, respiratory problems, urinary tract infections, and even mental health issues. The fruit itself contains several active compounds including tannins, gallic acid, flavonoids, phenolic acids, and terpenoids which are all beneficial for human health.

Haritaki is known to be an effective laxative and purgative which helps remove undigested food from the body while also helping with digestion. It can help balance Vata dosha in the body which helps reduce inflammation and improve overall health. Additionally, it can help boost immunity by increasing white blood cell count and improving lymphatic circulation.

Haritaki has many other benefits as well such as reducing cholesterol levels in the blood stream and helping with weight loss by suppressing appetite. It can also help reduce stress levels by calming the mind and promoting better sleep quality. Furthermore, it can help improve cognitive function by increasing alertness and concentration levels.
