Abstract
Halela (Terminalia chebula Retz, Family: Combretaceae) is one of the drugs worthwhile to be used in Unani medicine due to its extraordinary therapeutic efficacy. Globally the species is distributed in the Indo-Malesia region and Sri Lanka. Within India, it is distributed in the sub-Himalayan tracts to West Bengal and Assam. Halela is one of the drugs of choice to be used in Saudawi/ chronic diseases (diseases with the dominance of black bile) in Unani medicine. Halela proposed to promotes digestion, absorption, elimination, rejuvenation, and elimination of black bile from the body (khilt sauda, a humour responsible to produce aging and a culprit for chronic diseases). Various scientific studies have also evidenced its beneficial effects. In this paper, a review of three different varieties of halela which have been used in Unani medicine for centuries has been specified with special reference of Unani as well as other pieces of literatures.

Key words: Terminalia chebula, halela, Unani medicine, haritaki, halelajat, triphala
