If I could draw pictures here, I could get carried away with this. The idea of the three phases is to then rectify it, without the voltage ever going to zero. If you only had one phase, the full wave rectification will allow the voltage to go near zero. With three phases, overlapping as they do, the variation in voltage(ripple) is minimized.

Have a great weekend,
