Ayurvedic texts praise the Amla for its health restoring benefits like:

  • Aiding the body’s natural detoxification processes by helping to eliminate toxins, excess amounts of water, salts and uric acid. This helps to fortify the liver

  • Weight management support by helping to keep blood sugar stable thanks to its high chromium levels

  • Enhancing bioavailability of nutrients from food

  • Purifying blood and raising red blood cell count

  • Balancing stomach acid and aids in the digestion of protein

  • Strengthening eyes and vision while reducing redness, itching and watering  

  • Supporting reproductive health and boost fertility in both men and women. In Ayurveda, amla is known as a vrishya herb, meaning that it helps to enhance all seven tissues in the body, including the reproductive tissue

The Amla fruit is also abundant in Vitamin C, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron as well as Vitamin B Complex. It’s one of the richest sources of Carotene, which yields some highly appreciated cosmetic benefits like:

  • Improving overall hair quality and markers of hair health like luster and growth while enhancing hair pigmentation and strengthening the roots

  • Minimizing hair loss, which is thought to be due to the combination of Carotene, Iron and general antioxidant capacity which helps to prevent free radical damage to hair follicles

  • Diet support. Amla is renowned for its ability to help boost feelings of satiety

  • Brightens skin tone, reduces breakouts and impurities in the skin

  • Makes skin appear firmer. Amla’s high levels of Vitamin C help to restore optimal collagen production

The Amla is considered to be a sacred tree in India and appears in many important Ayurvedic texts and ancient poems.
