Bibhitaki: The Fearless
One of the three fruits used in the ancient Ayurvedic rasayana formula Triphala, Bibhitaki translates to “fearless of disease.” In classic Ayurveda, Bibhitaki is a wild-crafted fruit, meaning it is not cultivated, but is gathered from undeveloped forests.
The Ayurvedic text, the Charaka Samhita, lists Bibhitaki’s characteristics of alleviating disease, bestowing longevity, and promoting intellectual prowess and strength.
The leaves of the tree are valued as fodder for livestock, and researchers are exploring the possibility of using the seeds, called “bedda nuts,” as a biodiesel fuel due to their high oil content.
Bibhitaki Body and Mind Benefits
In Ayurveda, Bibhitaki belongs to three groups of herbs: Jwarahara, herbs used to treat fever; Kasahara, herbs used to treat cold and cough; and Virechanopaga, herbs used in Panchakarma detoxification. Bibhitaki brings a mild laxative action to the classic Triphala formulation, and is said to balance the Kapha and Vata doshas. The fruit is also believed to alleviate stress and anxiety — studies show that biocomponents of the fruit may have anti-depressant characteristics.
