Ayurveda considers Haritaki to be one of the best herbs for balancing vata dosha. As a natural laxative and purgative, it removes undigested food and accumulated toxins from the gastrointestinal tract. It strengthens and nourishes the tissues and supports proper function of the colon, lungs, liver and spleen. Haritaki is traditionally used as a remedy for all vata disturbances, including constipation, emaciation, flatulence and indigestion. Haritaki is highly revered in India, as it is believed to increase energy, intelligence and awareness.
