Haritaki is a powerful detoxifier and digestive aide in Ayurvedic medicine. Although the benefits of the Haritaki herb extend throughout the body, it principally acts on the colon and lower digestive tract. Haritaki is a cleansing ayurvedic herb that can provide remarkable benefits to different types of digestive ailments. Depending upon dosage, Haritaki can relieve diarrhea or constipation as its cleansing and clearing actions remove accumulated matter from the lower intestines and colon which stimulates the final digestive process and improves nutrient absorption and stool quality. Consequently, Haritaki greatly supports the detoxification of the entire body by cleansing the lower digestive tract. This Haritaki is 100% USDA Certified Organic free of any animal products. As with all our products at Gopala Organic, this Haritaki was grown with care and love at our jungle farm in Karnataka, India.
In Tibetan literature, the different parts of the Haritaki tree has been used for a special therapeutic purpose. The roots clear the diseases of the bone, the stem clears muscle diseases, the bark is useful for skin diseases, the branches are useful in vascular disorders, leaves are useful for visceral diseases, and the fruit for vital organs, including heart diseases.[5]
Paste PallathurNo. 20/5, Main Road, Pallathur, Karaikudi Tk, Sivagangai District, Editorial and Peer Review Process Alternate-opposite The chemical components of WETC were identified using an Agilent 1100 series high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) system (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara, CA, United States). Samples (10 μL in 90% methanol/water) were injected into the HPLC connected to a Gemini C18 column (5 μm; 250 × 4.6 mm; Phenomenex, Torrance, CA, United States) at room temperature. Data were acquired with ChemStation software (version A 10.01). The column was eluted at a flow rate of 0.4 mL/min using 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile (solvent A) and water (solvent B). The following gradient program was employed: 0–5 min, linear gradient from 100 to 95% B; 5–40 min, linear gradient from 95 to 60% B. Eluting compounds were detected at 276 nm. For quantification of WETC, pure reference compounds (punicalagin, geraniin, and gallic chebulic, chebulagic, and chebulinic acids) were dissolved in methanol/water (9:1) at a range of concentrations between 12.5 and 1000 μg/mL to generate a standard curve from the corresponding peak areas. The samples were analyzed under identical conditions, and the concentrations of each compound in WETC were determined by extrapolating from the standard curve. To confirm the chemical compositions of WETC, mass spectrometric analysis was performed using an ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography high-resolution mass spectrometry (UHPLC-HRMS). For analysis, 5 mg WETC dissolved in 1 mL 90% methanol solution were analyzed on an LTQ Orbitrap XL linear ion-trap MS system (Thermo Scientific Co., San Jose, CA) equipped with an electrospray ionization source. The separation was performed on an Accela UHPLC system using an Acquity BEH C18 column (1.7 μm; 100 × 2.1 mm; Waters, Milford, MA, USA). The mobile phase conditions contained 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile (solvent A) and water (solvent B). The gradient flow was as follows: 0–1 min, isocratic with 99% B; 1–7 min, linear gradient from 99 to 10% B; 7–10 min, isocratic with 10% B. The flow rate was 0.4 mL/min, and the full-scan mass spectra were recorded in the negative ionization scan mode between m/z 150 and 1,500. An Orbitrap analyzer was used for high-resolution mass data acquisition with resolving power of 30,000 FWHM at m/z 400.
Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can form in your gallbladder. Your gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your liver. The gallbladder holds a digestive fluid called bile that’s released into your small intestine. Gallstones range in size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball. Some people develop just one gallstone, while others develop many gallstones at the same time. People who experience symptoms from their gallstones usually require gallbladder removal surgery. Gallstones that don’t cause any signs and symptoms typically don’t need treatment.
“Our study shows that patients who have had the the entire vagus nerve severed were protected against Parkinson’s disease. Their risk was halved after 20 years. However, patients who had only had a small part of the vagus nerve severed where not protected. This also fits the hypothesis that the disease process is strongly dependent on a fully or partially intact vagus nerve to be able to reach and affect the brain,” she says.

Haritaki is a fruit from India that is considered the best supplement for every illness in the Indian system of medicine. Haritaki benefits include that fact that it increases brain function and cleanses the digestive tract. Haritaki is reported to be helpful in awakening the third eye.It works by firstly cleansing the guts as it has antibacterial properties. This increases blood flow throughout the body and especially to the brain.it is recommended that you take haritaki in capsule form to begin with, as the taste is very strong and pungent. The best haritaki to take is organic haritaki plus. Kailash Herbals supplies this from their web site.Haritaki side effects include increased energy, which is generally considered a good thing.Haritaki brain function is increased because of the cleansing of the pineal gland that takes place,
The traditional way of ingesting triphala is as a tea. This method allows one to taste the herb fully, and taste is considered by Ayurveda to be an important part of the healing process. Taste starts the digestive process, and sends signals to the body as to what to expect, already initiating your body’s own inner pharmacy. To take triphala as a tea, make a decoction by adding ½ teaspoon of triphala powder to a cup of hot water. Stir and allow the tea to cool, and drink. Triphala churna contains five of the six tastes recognized in Ayurveda (sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and astringent), only missing the salty taste. Perhaps because the Western diet is so lacking in bitter and astringent, these are the two most prominent tastes for most people, which can make drinking the tea somewhat unpleasant initially. Over time, as the system becomes more balanced, it is not uncommon for the taste one perceives to evolve into a sweet experience. Triphala is usually taken on an empty stomach, most commonly in the evening before bed. Some prefer to take it first thing in the morning, especially if taking it at bedtime makes one urinate at night.
Corticosterone levels: Based on animal study, oral administration of Triphala (a combination of Terminalia chebula, Terminalia bellerica, and Emblica officinalis), at a dose of 1g/kg for 48 days, may prevent increases in corticosterone levels induced by cold stress (8°C for 16 hours per day for 15 days) in albino rats (5). The same dose may prevent increases in corticosterone levels induced by noise stress (100dB for four hours per day for 15 days) (56).
So, applying the turmeric and kumkum detoxifies the intra-organ called Third Eye. Putting your attention and keeping it on your Third Eye, rubbing your Third Eye with your attention, activates the WILL, that creates Ajna to manifest powers through your intra-organ called Third Eye. Both need to be done. Decalcification also need to be done. Detoxification also need to be done. Infusing energy also need to be done.
My recommendation is that you check out a number of teachers from different traditions and see what resonates with you. One easy way to review the field available to you is to use YouTube. You can find many videos of different teachers, easily and quickly, and find which one resonates with you. If you need additional help, one suggestion is, at bedtime ask for a dream or clarity on which teacher is right for you. Many people report that using this method they have received clear and direct information on who to spend time with and what their next steps are. The way that a number of enlightened masters explain this is, that by exploring and meeting different enlightened masters you are collecting a bouquet of beautiful flowers. Each flower is different and unique. Having collected the bouquet, it is then useful to enjoy and smell the flowers. The next step is to spend time with one flower. Enjoying its benefits. This way you get the benefits of that teacher working on you in their unique way. They know what needs to take place within you, in areas that you are unaware of. If on the other hand, you do not spend time with one teacher but instead you mix and match teachers and techniques, you run the risk of choosing techniques that you like, and avoiding those that you actually need!
Gastrointestinal agents: Based on an animal studies, Terminalia chebula may accelerate the healing of indomethacin-induced stomach ulceration in rats (45) and, at a dose of 100mg/kg daily for 15 days orally, increased the percentage of gastric emptying (compared with metoclopramide, a prokinetic drug) (46). Based on a study in rats with duodenal ulcers, a mixture of Ayurvedic medicines that included Terminalia chebula (with Glycyrrhiza glabra, Piper longum, and Shanka bhasma) may increase the activity of beta-glucuronidase activity in the Brunner’s glands (47).
 I set up a treasure hunt for 3 of the children. While blindfolded, they ran through rooms full of furniture with ease. They were able to read continuously changing headlines from websites such as CNN news. They then were asked to find a car with a particular California license plate number in a parking lot that had about 40 other cars. They ran through the parking lot reading off the last few letters or numbers of the license plates. They then spotted the car with the correct license plate, from approximately 40 feet away, and ran to it to confirm it.
Many plants and herbs have oils and volatile oils in their own natural form which is the integral part of the plant and also beneficial for efficacy and potency, so some of the powders may be sticky or oily due to oil content present in them because we at herbsforever do not extract any oil from the plant or do any extraction. Also we at herbsforever do not add any additive or drying agent.
Many users report that as their negativity declines, anxiety, stress and depression disappears. This enables them to be more dynamic with their lives. They report becoming more decisive, more clear, and experiencing fewer emotional swings. This lessening of emotional swings is reported as being quite wonderful! It has also been reported as being initially disturbing, to those of us who enjoy these addictive patterns.
A study was performed on effect of herb in diabetic patients, the water extract of dry Haritaki at as dose of 200 mg/kg body weight was given is was found that it improved the glucose tolerance,  indicated by 44% of reduction in the peak blood glucose at 2nd hour in glucose tolerance test in diabetic (streptozotocin induced) rats (Murali YK et al., Indian Journal of Clinical Biochemistry, 2004) [1]
While large clinical trials on haritaki are lacking, preliminary research suggests it may offer certain health benefits. For instance, a 2010 study from Oral Health & Preventive Dentistry suggests using a haritaki-based mouthwash might help prevent cavities. For the study, 30 people were given either distilled water or a mouthwash made with haritaki. In their analysis of saliva samples collected after rinsing, the study's authors determined that the haritaki-based mouthwash was significantly more effective in reducing levels of bacteria linked to the development of cavities.

As one of the three ingredients in the Ayurvedic super formula Triphala, haritaki (Terminalia chebula) is considered to be one of the best herbs for balancing vata dosha. Supporting the body's innate cleansing process, it gently removes accumulated natural toxins in the gastrointestinal tract. As a rejuvenative, it strengthens and nourishes the tissues and supports the proper function of the colon, lungs, liver, and spleen. Haritaki is traditionally used as a remedy for all vata-related imbalances. It maintains regular elimination, helps promote healthy body mass, and supports comfortable and complete digestion. Haritaki is highly revered in India, as it is believed to increase energy, intelligence, and awareness.*
Take around two tablespoonfuls of Herbal decoction and mix it well with around two cups of water (Around 150 ml water) in the evening hours. Keep the mixture for whole night. The very next morning, boil this mixture on light to medium flame. Shake it well during boiling. Gradually the water will start to get evaporating. When around half cup of water remains in the mixture during boiling, take it down. Strain the liquid into a glass or ceramic container using a sieve or a cloth such as a jelly bag or muslin cloth. Drink the freshly prepared liquid decoction after 4-5 minutes.

4.0 mg of methanol extract, dissolved in ethanol, was loaded onto the Sephadex LH 20 column (GE healthcare) (30×4 cm with i.d. 2 cm) and fractionation was conducted by successive elution of sample with increasing concentration of methanol (0, 5, 10, 20, 30, 50 and 100%) in ethanol (100 ml of each solvent). Individual fractions (F1–F7) were dried at 30°C and re-suspended in 1 ml of methanol. Phytochemical analysis of the fractions was done for the presence of terpenoides, flavonoids, saponins, tannins and alkaloids [46]. The fraction that inhibited the production of violacein pigment in biosensor CVO26 [47] was used for further work.
The ancient Assyrians knew about it and depicted the Pineal as a mysterious cone in their reliefs. The Egyptians showed it through the Eye of Horus. Freemasons included it their rich symbolism. Antique scrolls of Nepal talk about it. Cathars of Southern France knew about it. And even Buddha has this freaking third-eye-enlightenment-dot on his forehead!
– Essentials oils can be used to help stimulate the Pineal Gland and facilitate states of spiritual awareness, meditation, astral projection, etc. Good essential oils for Pineal Gland purposes include: Lavender, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Parsley, Davana, Pine, Pink Lotus, and Mugwort (excess use of Mugwort has a neurotoxin effect if inhaled directly, so be careful!). Essential oils can be inhaled directly, burned in a diffuser or nebulizer, and added to bath water.
Yoga is one of the oldest physical and spiritual practices in the world. By studying it you can find about chakras which are the energy centers in your body. The Pineal gland is connected with the crown chakra which is activated with practices like Pranayama, Vipassana, and Yoga, which is great for stabilizing your “energy winds” or what the Chinese call “Chi”.

Hey there Jiva, thanks for this great question. The site lists so many different uses for haritaki that it is organised with each use as a page. So you can look up any use you are thinking of. The main use for opening the third eye are the ones that you already know, I can add that to make sure you take enough at night to have a great bowel movement in the morning. Finally, to use an enema in conjunction with haritaki does cleanse the system and the third eye even more.
