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.
