In Sanskrit the word triphala means "three fruits". Triphala is made from amalaki, haritaki and bibhitake which are three superfruits that are grown in the Middle East and India. These fruits are dried and then ground into a fine powder before being blended together to make the herbal remedy known as triphala.
