Amla (Phyllanthus emblica) or India Gooseberry is one of the most valuable Indian medicinal plant with antioxidant properties and is a very rich source of Vitamin ‘C’. It is the main ingredient of Chyawanprash (herbal jam) and Trifla – the two most popular ayurvedic preparations. Amla is also said to be the only fruit which can cure Tridosas of vatta, pitta and kapha as per the Ayurvedic texts.
Amla is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C, its fresh juice containing nearly twenty times as much vitamin C as orange juice. A single tiny Amla is equivalent in vitamin C content to two oranges. Clinical tests on patients suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis have shown that this high concentrate is more quickly assimilated then the synthetic vitamin. It is an ingredient of many Ayurvedic medicines and tonics, as it removes excessive salivation, nausea, vomiting, giddiness, spermatorrhoea, internal body heat and menstrual disorders. Because it is also cooling, it increases sattwa, and is an excellent liver tonic.
Special care and consultation to be take if you are Pregnant or have bleeding and liver disorder.
One tablespoon mixed with warm water take before bedtime.
