Haritaki or Terminalia Chebula is a fruit which is mainly used in almost all ayurvedic preparations. Ayurveda Acharyas eulogise this herb as “Vijaya” which means the fruit which helps to win over almost all diseases.
Obesity leads to surfacing of many health problems which are clubbed under the name of metabolic syndrome. Diabetes, increased blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease etc arise due to obesity. If obesity is controlled effectively we can prevent almost all these diseases. Let us analyse how the herb Haritaki (Terminalia Chebula) helps to reduce obesity or overweight.
Based on principles of Ayurveda this herb has the following properties
Laghu guna– This fruit is light to digest (Laghu) and gets quickly absorbed. This property helps the herb to get absorbed quickly by body tissues and initiate the action of weight loss.
Ruksha Guna (causing dryness of tissues by absorbing water content) – Haritaki draws good amount of water while getting metabolised. This water is drawn from body tissues especially fat tissues. Using up of excess water from body tissues ads up to weight loss. It also acts as diuretic and increases urine output.
Ushna Veerya (Hot potency) – This herb is known to increase the body temperature. Increased body temperature boosts the metabolism. In obesity usually the metabolism is sluggish. Increased rate of metabolism causes quick burning of fat.
Balances Vata Dosha: Usually vata dosha influences pitta dosha to cause metabolic disorder. Haritaki effectively controls vata dosha and normalises metabolism in obese persons.
Since it balances vata dosha the other two doshas (kapha and pitta) also get balanced. This in turn hastens the fat metabolism.
Relieves constipation: Constipation is a major problem in obese people. This herb softens stools and eases bowel movement. Healthy bowel movement leads to healthy metabolism.
Apart from the above mentioned properties, Haritaki rejuvenates the body tissues and helps to maintain the overall health of body.
Hence this herb has been chosen as an ingredient in NILOBESE WEIGHT LOSS AYURVEDIC TEA.
Who should not use Haritaki: Persons who are suffering from severe depression, weakness, and low body weight or are willing to gain weight should not use this fruit. It is strict no for pregnant ladies. People who are on fasting or have acute fever are barred from using this. Never consume this fruit when you are thirsty.
