Triphala: A useful therapeutic supplement during COVID-19 pandemic
In this communication, efforts have been made to point out two different aspects: the clinical symptoms of COVID-19 and several therapeutic effects of ‘Triphala’. The ‘Triphala’ have been acting as ‘one formula therapy’ since the time of the Ayurveda, and the COVID-19 is not an exception. The relationship between the pre- and post-symptom of COVID-19 and the therapeutic activity of ‘Triphala’ gives us a ray of hope to use Triphala as an anti-corona therapeutic supplement during the pandemic as well as in near future.
