Amla, also known as Indian gooseberry, is a small green fruit renowned for its rich vitamin C content and medicinal properties. It is a potent antioxidant, supports immune health, aids digestion, promotes hair and skin health, and has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries
Dosage & Duration
The fruits themselves (dry weight) or their powder are taken in the dosage range of 1-3g daily with the higher part of this range being seen as more effective.
Helps manage chronic conditions
Amla contains a lot of chromium, which lowers bad cholesterol and stimulates the production of insulin, lowering blood glucose levels in diabetics. Consuming amla juice first thing every morning or when one's blood pressure is elevated also aids in maintaining blood pressure control.
Amla's carotene has been shown in studies to enhance vision. Consuming amla regularly has also been associated with an improvement in overall eye health because it helps to prevent redness, itching, and watering of the eyes as well as cataract issues and intraocular tension (the pressure you feel).
Amla beautifies hair
Amla is a well-proven tonic for hair, just like curry leaves. It contains a lot of essential fatty acids, which deeply enter the hair follicles to prevent dandruff, slow down the onset of greying, and strengthen the hair follicles. The high iron and carotene content of this tart fruit promotes hair growth. Amla also functions naturally as a conditioner, giving you soft, gleaming hair.
It relieves pain
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, amla can offer relief from aching joints brought on by arthritis as well as painful mouth ulcers. Amla is used as an analgesic to treat wounds, and studies have shown that its extracts can help reduce neuropathic and postoperative pain.
