Amla (aka Amalaki or Indian Gooseberry) is known as the Great Rejuvenator. It is helpful for a variety of digestive problems, enhancing cellular regeneration and is well known for its antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It supports a healthy heart and promotes good blood circulation as well as nourishing the brain and improving mental functions. It has also been used to improve eyesight, regulate elimination, enhances fertility, helps the urinary system, acts as a body coolant, flushes out toxins, increases vitality, strengthens the eyes, improves muscle tone, strengthen the bones and teeth and cause hair and nails to grow. Fortifying for the liver, spleen and lungs, amla is excellent for helping to flush out toxins and has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic herbal applications.
Unlike many superfoods being introduced today, the chemical profile of raw Amla cannot be limited to one star ingredient or beneficial compound. Instead, research has discovered an unparalleled spectrum of powerful anti-oxidants, polyphenols, tannic acids and bioflavanoids. Amla also contains a high concentration of amino acids, trace minerals and other beneficial phytonutrients.
Raw Amla (Amalaki) contains the potent phenolic combination of ellagic acid, gallic acid and emblicanin A+B. Together these polyphenols are important for reducing cellular and oxidative stress, destroying immune damaging free radicals and supporting the overall detoxification of the body. The bioflavanoids, rutin and quercetin also contribute to the overall antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and youth promoting qualities of this remarkable fruit. Additionally, amla contains the potent antioxidant enzymes super oxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase and catalase.
Amla may also be used externally and works as an excellent moisturizer promoting healthy radiant skin, hair and nails. Raw Amla can be used in shampoos to nourish the hair and scalp and prevent premature grey hair.
