Poisonous Pits: Why our Triphala Formula uses Only Fruit Pulp

Recently I had a conversation with a student that went a bit like this:

 Q. So Prashanti, in class you said that the three Triphala fruits are amongst the most incredibly potent herbs that humans have commonly available to them.

A. Yes, it is true, in dozens of ways they are incredible medicines for all facets of our wellness, supporting tissues, organs and systems all around and within our bodymind.

 Q. How can I be sure that the Triphala I use is safe?

A. Traditional knowledge regarding Triphala is to never use the seeds, which can be toxic. ORGANIC INDIA uses only fruit pulp, not the seeds in our Triphala Formula.

 Q. You taught us that hyperbole is part of Vedic exegesis, so in this case is the tradition just being hyperbolic, and exaggerating?

A.  Good point, and indeed, the pulp of the Triphala fruits are such incredibly highly potent medicines that we do not want to dilute our Triphala products with the Triphala seeds which rarely have any medicinal use. So preventing dilution of the Triphala pulp may be one reason why the ancients said that Triphala seeds were toxic. But in this case it is also true, the seeds are slightly toxic.

 Q.  So how can a fruit be powerful medicine if part of it, the seed or pit, is toxic?

A.  Most of the seeds and pits of the fruits we love are toxic actually. Triphala is no exception here.  For instance, the pits/seed fruits including cherry pits, peaches, plums, apples, pears, and apricots, contain cyanogenic glycosides, which are slightly toxic. And yet we eat a lot of these fruits. By the way, this is exactly why you always eat sweet almonds and never eat bitter almonds, though you can use bitter almond oil on the skin. You are right in that often the chemistry of a plant is pervasive throughout the plant, which is why we can use Bael leaves instead of Bael fruit to support GI issues, but usually the phytochemistry of the seed of the plant is unique. Part of the plant’s strategy to survive is to make sure its seeds are not eaten by animals or bugs, so it makes sense that many pits are toxic.

 Q.  So what companies use the whole fruits with the seeds?

A.  That is not for me to say here, but for you to find out. So ask your herb source about Triphala, but do not “lead the witness,” per se, just ask questions and then be quiet and let them talk and see where it goes. It is up to the consumer to keep the herb company aligned with truth and to support them in doing what is right. An herb company that is either not informed and/or not transparent is the first sign that perhaps your support should go elsewhere.

  19. The things i have often told individuals is that when you are evaluating a good internet electronics shop, there are a few components that you have to take into account. First and foremost, you need to make sure to discover a reputable and in addition, reliable shop that has received great testimonials and classification from other people and industry leaders. This will make certain you are getting along with a well-known store that provides good services and support to its patrons. Many thanks sharing your notions on this blog.

  20. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  21. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  22. Thanks for the tips on credit repair on your web-site. The thing I would offer as advice to people is usually to give up this mentality they can buy at this point and pay back later. Being a society we tend to do this for many issues. This includes getaways, furniture, along with items we’d like. However, you must separate your wants from all the needs. When you are working to raise your credit score you really have to make some trade-offs. For example you may shop online to save cash or you can visit second hand merchants instead of expensive department stores pertaining to clothing.

  23. Howdy would you thoughts sharing which weblog platform you’re using? I will begin my own blog quickly but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
