Method of preparation

when it comes to ease of manufacturing, Triphala Guggulu is easier than the other. This is due to lesser number of ingredients and simpler procedure.
Both these contain Guggulu as the single most dominant ingredient.
Triphala Guggulu is an example of Anagni Siddha Guggulu – Anagni means – No Agni – No fire. In the making of this Guggulu, no fire (heating process) is involved.
Kaishor Guggul is an example of Agni Siddha Guggulu – In the making of this product, fire is used.


Triphala Guggulu contains five ingredients. Kaishor Guggulu has  16 ingredients, including the five ingredients of Triphala Gulgulu.

Kaishore Guggulu


Both the products are commonly indicated in –
Gulma – tumour, fibroids
Shotha – inflammatory conditions
Trifla Guggul is especially indicated in hemorrhoids and fistula.
Kaishor Guggul is indicated in non healing wounds, arthritis, skin diseases, diabetic carbuncle, cough anemia etc.

When it comes to inflammation, Triphala guggulu is slightly better than Kaishor Guggul.
When it comes to variety of diseases that a single tablet is indicated, Kaishor Guggul is better.
Kaishore has Rasayana (anti ageing effect). Its anti ageing effect can be attributed to Guduchi, Pippali and Amla.
Kaishore guggulu benefits are explained along with suitable co-drinks. Example: For non healing wounds, it is administered along with Khadiradi Kashayam. Where as such co drinks are not explained specifically for Triphala Guggulu.

Effect on Dhatu

Kaishor has better action over Rakta (blood), Mamsa (muscle tissue) and Medo Dhatu (fat tissue), when compared to Triphala Guggul.
Though both the tablets have ingredients against diabetes, Kaishor Guggul is superior.


Triphala Guggulu is safer. Because Kaishore contains Danti and Trivrit.
Tendency of diarrhoea is more in Kaishore, because of Danti and Trivrit ingredients.
Overall both these tablets are efficient tools in the hands of Ayurvedic doctor.

  1. Sir, I have been using Trifula Guggulu tablet ( 2 tablets in morning and 2 tablets in night ) from Dabur for past 10 days for external painful Hemorrhoids and now feeling really better. My doctor advised to use it for 3 months to make sure that it won’t reoccur next time soon. Is it fine to use Trifula Guggulu for 2 months with the current dosage?
