    I have used bruhath triphala for a while. It was prescribed by an ayurvedic doctor. You will be able to find other genuine brands in Amazon.com

    Any ayurvedic powder loses its potency after a few months.Best is to buy the Triphala pieces (Amlaki,Bibhitaki and Haritaki) from Indian stores or online.Take equal amounts of all the 3 fruits enough for few weeks or a month,powder and use.

    I bought triphala on Amazon from a brand called Organic India. They also sell in our local organic stores so I’m assuming they are legit.

    Triphala implies 3 phal (fruits - Amlaki,Bibhitaki and Haritaki) that are deseeded,dried and powdered in equal amounts.Triphala is available in both whole and powdered form at Ayurvedic stores. Have a look at the attached pic, starting from left is dried Amla (Amlaki),Vibhitaki and Haritaki. For what purpose are you looking for?

    Endless benefits! Triphala, a miraculous combination of three myrobalans, is good for overall health. It helps eliminate free radical damage and detoxifies your body with regular intake.Triphala is very useful in case of constipation. It also helps reduce obesity.It is used both internally and externally.

    To reduce obesity
    To 1 glass lukewarm water add a spoon of triphala powder,1 spoon honey, mix and drink.
    Dosage - start with 1 spoon in the morning, gradually have another dosage in the evening as well.

    It is also great for skin and hair.It is used in making hair packs,hair oils,traditional body bath and shampoo powders.

    Bath powder
    Mix 200 gms kala chana powder,100 gms masoor dal powder,50 gms turmeric,50 gms triphala powder and store in a glass jar.Take a fistful of this powder and mix with sufficient milk into a smooth paste.Apply all over the body,wait for 2 mins and wash with water.This removes all the dead skin cells and results in smooth skin.

    Triphala reduces dandruff,promotes hair growth and slows hair greying.

    Triphala herbal shampoo
    Mix 100 grams dried hibiscus leaves powder,100 grams triphala powder and add to 200 ml of mild shampoo base such as Dr Bronner's castile liquid soap.Also add 20 ml sandalwood oil for fragrance(optional),mix well and store in a bottle and use as needed.

    Another option is to grind fresh hibiscus leaves into a paste and mix with triphala powder for immediate use (no need to add shampoo base).

    Check Ayurvedic Hair Care Products From Loreto They have a herbal hair cleansing powder using Triphala.

    Triphala is also good for teeth and eyes.Close your eyes and apply the Triphala decoction over the eyelids on a daily basis to improve eyesight.You can then run your hand with the decoction into the scalp and hair while slowly gargling the decoction for healthy teeth and gums.To make Triphala decoction add equal amount of triphala pieces (5 pieces of each of deseeded and dried - amlaki,vibhitaki,haritaki) to a steel bowl or glass.Add a glass of hot water,mix well.Cover with a lid and let soak overnight.The liquid turns dark,strain and use the decoction.

    Try Amazon because Triphala is quite popular here as some Americans do use them Or check Indian stores.

    If you are looking for any other Ayurvedic products from popular brands you can check Distacart, I recently ordered some products of Kottakkal brand which was delivered from India and it was super fast and less expensive.
