Triphala is a widely utilised Ayurvedic formulation available across the world as a nutraceutical. The pancharasa formulation consists of 177 bioactives which act in unison to eradicate diseased tissue without harming normal tissues, making it unique. This chapter provides an overview of Triphala from the Ayurvedic perspective, its bioactives, evidence of pharmacological activities, and approaches for current disease groups. Further, its potential as a nanomedicine by combining it with physiologically important metals using Rasashastra technology is discussed briefly.
