5 Ancient Herbs For Modern Digestion

When it comes to looking and feeling our absolute best, healthy digestion is truly the foundation for True Wellness. What we put into our bodies directly impacts the way we think, act, and feel. When we aren’t absorbing the beneficial nutrients in the foods we are eating, we can experience a myriad of belly woes.

When your digestive system cries out for help, it’s time to focus on restoring and re-balancing your flora as a friend, not a foe. Fortunately, ORGANIC INDIA has a variety of products to aid in promoting digestive health. Not only are these products non-GMO project verified, but they are also made with certified organic herbs

1. Amalaki

Also referred to as “Amla” in India, this beneficial superfruit has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine. It provides the body with a natural source of vitamin C that is easy to digest. Amalaki has traditionally been used to provide rejuvenation for the entire body. It also has been shown to aid in detoxifying the digestive system and the GI tract while reducing acidity and balancing pH levels. ORGANIC INDIA Amalaki is a wonderful product for not only promoting proper digestion but for contributing to overall wellness throughout the body. Try taking one capsule a day with food for optimal digestive support.

2. Turmeric

This herb has been getting a lot of press lately and for good reason! Turmeric has been one of the most studied botanicals in modern science due to the amazing properties it possesses. Traditionally, it has been used for promoting heart health, immune function and joint mobility and support. But did you know that Turmeric can also aid in keeping our digestive system healthy? That’s because it is considered a bitter that can easily be incorporated into a variety of foods. Or you can try taking Turmeric in supplement form. ORGANIC INDIA‘s Turmeric Formula is fortified with curcuminoid extract and organic ginger to make this herb’s goodness more bio-available to your body. I recommend taking one or two capsules a day to aid in keeping your digestive system in tip-top shape.

3. Psyllium

One of my morning smoothie ingredient staples, ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium, is a convenient way to incorporate fibre into your daily diet. Our bodies need fibre not only to promote proper digestion but to aid in regular elimination. There isn’t anything worse than feeling “backed-up” and psyllium is a great way to keep things moving! ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium is 100% certified organic and does not contain any synthetic ingredients. It contains both soluble and insoluble fibre to support the health of the entire gastrointestinal system. Try adding a tablespoon of this product to your next juice or morning smoothie recipe.

Triphala FAQ
4. Triphala

One of the oldest and most renowned herbs in Ayurvedic medicine, Triphala has been shown to aid in cleansing and toning the entire GI tract. It also works to promote regular elimination while improving our body’s natural ability to assimilate nutrients. Like Amalaki, Triphala is a wonderful source of vitamin C and other antioxidants to help fight off damaging free radicals.

ORGANIC INDIA Triphala is made with only fruit pulp and contains a nourishing blend of three Ayurvedic superfruits: Amalaki, Bibhitaki and Haritaki. This trio of herbs is commonly used in Ayurveda to promote overall digestive wellness! Best of all, ORGANIC INDIA Triphala capsules are gluten-free and vegan-friendly. Try taking one or two capsules first thing in the morning before breakfast. Your gut will thank you!

Cinnamon 101
5. Cinnamon

ORGANIC INDIA Cinnamon capsules are designed to support sugar metabolism in the body. Cinnamon has been studied for its antioxidant properties and positive effect on supporting proper digestion, namely due to its warming properties.

Cinnamon has been studied for its antioxidant properties and positive effect on supporting proper digestion, namely due to its warming properties. In the Vedic tradition, Cinnamon is a warming herb with sweet, pungent, and bitter rasas (tastes). Ayurveda uses Cinnamon as an addition to herbal churnas (mixtures of herbs that are intended to balance an individual’s constitution), that promote nutrient assimilation and disguise the taste of less palatable herbs.

In Ayurveda, cinnamon is thought to strengthen Agni, which is described as an individual’s digestive fire and strength and ability to assimilate life experiences meaningfully.

ORGANIC INDIA’s Cinnamon capsules are USDA-Certified organic, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free. They are also Non-GMO Project verified as well as Kosher and Halal certified. Learn more about the Cinnamon capsules here.


ORGANIC INDIA produces Tulsi teas and herbal supplements that are not only good for your body, but good for the earth. Based in India, we’re dedicated to making organic, GMO-free, vegetarian products that are created using sustainable, ethical, and socially responsible methods. Our products include teas, supplements and foods, all grown in our farmlands in northern India.

20 years ago we set out to create a herbal medicine company that was close to our hearts. Our plan was to export India’s ancient Ayurvedic medicinal wisdom, in the form of herbal formulas and supplements, to the West. Yet after witnessing the critical and toxic state of India’s agriculture, we realised that our mission would be far better served working across the supply chain ourselves, starting with the health of the land and the farmers, all the way through to the consumer. We now work with over 2000 rural family farmers to cultivate over 10,000 acres of organic farmland in India.
