Bihara purifies and balances excess mucus, treats asthma, bronchiole conditions and allergies.

Using triphala doesn’t just detox your system, it also nourishes and rejuvenates the membrane lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Other benefits include cleansing the liver, kidneys and purifying the blood.
There are two ways to take Triphala, as a powder or tablet. You simply stir in about ½ tsp. of powder with warm water and consume the entire amount in the evening (most beneficial).
