Amla Powder is made from the Amla fruit, which is also known as the Indian gooseberry. The fruit is dried and ground to make Amla Powder. Despite the Indian Gooseberry name and the fact that it resembles the Common Gooseberry, Amla is actually unrelated to it. The fruit comes from a tree native to India and is mentioned extensively in Ayurvedic texts. Sushruta, considered the father of Indian medicine made mention of Amla’s health benefits. Sushruta is believed to have lived between 1500 and 3000 BCE, indicating that the fruit has been used in India for millennia.
Amla Berry is a fruit that has been revered in India as a blood purifier, nutritive tonic and restorative mucous membrane tonic. Amla Berry is also one of the three fruits in the Ayurvedic preparation Triphala.
Amla is commonly known to contain vitamin C. Some sources even suggest that this fruit has one of the highest known concentrations of vitamin C in the plant kingdom—twenty times that of an orange. More importantly, the vitamin C naturally found within the Amla fruit is stabilized by the presence of tannins, which help Amla to maintain its vitamin content even through processing.
The energetics and taste of Amla is sour, bitter, astringent and cooling. Amla has a particular affinity for the blood, the liver and the spleen, and is therefore able to support the elimination of natural toxins while nourishing and protecting the body’s natural defense systems.
How to use:
Use Amla in Triphala formula ½ teaspoon before bed; or use Amla by itself ¼ to ½ teaspoon one to two times daily.
Use Amla as a hair rinse once a day in the evening to support hair follicles.
Cautions & contraindications:
A night dose of Amla before sleep can erode the tooth enamel in the same way that over-exposure to citrus fruits might. Amla may also irritate the throat.
