    Introducing FairWild Triphala

    How often do we think about the wild plants that make up a formula such as triphala, and how those three special fruits—amalaki, bibhitaki, and haritaki—are obtained? How were they grown? Who harvested them? These are important questions to ask when buying any herbal product, but especially when buying products sourced from the wild, like our beloved triphala. We at Banyan are proud to launch our first FairWild certified formula, Triphala, using FairWild certified bibhitaki.
