Harad or Haritaki (Terminalia Chebula Fruit Powder)

The Haritaki Terminalia Chebula is a large, tall deciduous tree (a tree that sheds its leaves once a year) that produces the Chebula fruit. This tree is found in nations in South East Asia, especially in India. It produces what looks like a nut, ellipsoid in shape, with 5 equi-distanced ridges. The fruit starts green then changes to yellow to orangish brown in color. The fruit is fleshy and pulpy. This fruit is dehydrated and powdered for medicinal and herbal beauty use. Ayurveda has been using this powder for centuries. It contains five tastes: sour, sweet, pungent, bitter, and astringent. The most predominant taste is bitter and astringent. It helps balance the body's three doshas (constitutions) Vata (ether and air), Pitta (fire and water), and Kapha (water and earth). But this powder leans more towards balancing the Vata dosha.

Haritaki Chebula is one of the 3 fruits (Triphala, Sanskrit) that is revered in Ayurveda. Triphala literally means “three fruits,” a traditional Ayurvedic herbal formulation consisting of three fruits native to the Indian subcontinent: Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki, (Terminalia belerica) and Haritaki (Terminalia chebula).

References to the use of Triphala formulation, a combined powder, or three fruits used in one, can be found in the Sushrut Samhita, which is dated to 1500 BC. The Sushruta Samhita an early treatise on herbal medicine, contains 184 chapters and descriptions of 1120 illnesses, 700 medicinal plants, and a detailed study on anatomy.
