Physical and mental health is closely related to the good functioning of the digestive system or its disorders. The liver, kidneys and colon play a key role in detoxification. Regular, normal bowel movements should be provided to detoxify the intestinal tract. Triphala or other Ayurvedic bowel cleansers (like Indian plantain – Plantago ovata – bran) help with this. Consumption of herbs (such as Andrographis paniculata, Tinospora cordifolia, Picrorrhiza kurroa or neem, Azadirachta indica) contributes to increasing vitality, increasing resilience, results in better appetite and digestion, and more beautiful skin.
