Terminalia Chebula (Haritaki) Supplement and Benefits

Haritaki is a widespread herbaceous plant that has extensively been used for centuries in countless ayurvedic medicines. To give a brief overview, Ayurvedic treatment is one of the oldest and most traditional Indian systems used for treating all kinds of ailments. This has been passed on through generations and the ancient scholars of medicine. The effective use of Ayurvedic medicines over the past several thousand years has laid a very solid and concrete groundwork for current day medical science. In fact many medical advancements owe their success to ayurvedic practices.

The Haritaki fruits are the main ingredient used in the preparations of many ayurvedic medicinal formulations. The process is moved along using the extract that is obtained from the Haritaki fruit because the fruit contains a specific substance known to possess anti-bacterial and anti fungal properties. The one major benefit of this substance is that it prohibits and eliminates the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi such as Escherichia Coli aka E. Coli. This is very essential because bacteria like E. Coli cause diseases and infections in places like the urinary tract. Haritaki also known as Terminalia Chebula is especially effective in working against E. Coli. Parasitic agents such as Amoeba giardia and similar ones are eliminated through the use of Haritaki.

In addition to E. Coli and other bacteria Haritaki is scientifically proven to be significantly effective against many other diseases. The diseases in which this herb is found useful are leucorrhoea, chronic ulcers, pyorrhea and various sorts of fungal infections on different parts of the skin. Castor oil is known to be effective in increasing the motility of the gastro intestinal tract; however the oil extracted and obtained through the kernel of the Haritaki plant is more efficient and beneficial for this purpose.
