Ayurveda recommends bibhitaki or vibhitaki for weight loss, since it is light to digest, boosts body fire or agni. Increased body fire accelerates metabolism. This in turn metabolises accumulated fat and causes weight loss.
Vibhitaki or Bibhitaki is a fruit which is widely used in many ayurvedic preparations. It is one of the main fruit in triphala or tri fruit combination. The Vibhitaki tree grows up to a height of 65 to 75 feet. This tree can be found all over India.
Health Benefits of Bibhitaki or Terminalia Chebula
Texts of Ayurveda describe properties of Vibhitaki as follows.
This fruit has astringent taste (Kashaya rasa). It is light to digest (Laghu) and causes dryness of tissues (Rooksha). Vibhitaki or Bibhitaki is hot in potency (Ushna Veerya).
Since vibhitaki fruit is light to digest it boosts body fire or agni. Increased body fire accelerates metabolism. This in turn metabolises accumulated fat.
Based on ayurvedic principles the herbs which have an astringent taste tend to shrink fat tissues. Thus the fat tissues tend to shrink on using this herb.
The hot potency of Bhibhitaki increases body temperature and helps to boost metabolism.
Ayurveda Acharyas have eulogised this herb for its Kapha mitigating properties. Meda or body fat is directly under the influence of Kapha. If Kapha increases the Meda also increases. if Kapha decreases, Meda (body fat) also decreases. Since the fruit bibhitaki mitigates Kapha , it is definite that it reduces body fat.
