Kapha Dosha

Bibhitaki Extract, 2 oz.

Bibhitaki is a tropical fruit found throughout India. It is about the size of a large walnut and is primarily astringent in taste. Bibhitaki is one of the three fruits in the famous triphala formula and is the preferred herb for regulating kapha. This means it is used when there are kapha accumulations in the lungs, ears, sinuses, throat, liver, and urinary tract. It is astringent and therefore absorbs the excess moisture of kapha. It has some lesser known value for treating tropical conditions such as diarrhea, pulmonary eosinophilia, and allergic reactions, very likely parasitic in origin. It is also one of the herbs used in oral health, but it usually the shell that is made as a decoction and then used as an oral rinse.

Ingredients: Terminalia bellirica Fruit, distilled water, organic alcohol, and vegetable glycein.

Healthy Kapha, 90 tablets, 500 mg

This is a rather new product from Banyan Botanicals. As its name suggests, it was developed to reduce excess kapha. It is intended for long-term use by those with kapha constitutions and for temporary use by those going through a period of kapha imbalance due to seasonal changes or other factors.

Since kapha tends to accumulate in the lungs, this formula is warm enough to liquefy thick phlegm, but it also helps support proper elimination of excess fluids as well as better immune system function. To this extent, the formula might be regarded as an appropriate rasayana for those who live in cold or damp climates or for those with tendencies towards sluggishness.

Ingredients: Bibhitaki fruit (Terminalia belerica)*, Chitrak root (Plumbago zeylanica)*, Punarnava root (Boerhaavia diffusa)*, Tulsi leaf (Ocimum sanctum)*, Turmeric root (Curcuma longa)*, Bhumyamalaki herb (Phyllanthus fraternus)*, Ginger root (Zingiber officinale)*, Pippali fruit (Piper longum)*. *Certified organically grown
