What is Amla?

Amla, also commonly known as Indian gooseberry, is a fruit native to India and used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.

Although it resembles a green grape, amla is more bitter and sour, considered inedible to many people. Despite its taste, amla has a lot of nutritional value.

Fortunately, you can get the benefits of amla through supplements, without ever taking a bite of the bitter fruit.

Why do I need Amla?

Vitamin C: Amla has a high vitamin C content which helps boost the immune system, may slow down aging, reduce blood sugar levels, and improve heart health.

Diuretic: In addition, amla is a diuretic. Diuretics help our bodies get rid of undesired toxins, excess water, salt, and uric acid. Diuretic substances may help prevent kidney and urinary infections.

Improved appearance: Amla’s most visible benefits are improved skin, healthier hair, and better muscle tone.

Anti-aging: Amla contains a large amount of antioxidants. Antioxidants fight against free radicals that contribute to signs of aging like wrinkles.
