Himej is extracted from the same plant (Terminalia chebula) as the fruit Haritaki, best known for forming one part of the classic Ayurvedic remedy Triphala. Although lesser known than Haritaki fruit, it is considered more potent.
Himej is also sometimes referred to as Inknut, and its holistic authority lies in its ability to purge and eliminate waste from the body.
