Note: Further research, including human studies, is still needed to fully understand the mechanisms of action and effects in humans.
Amla, also known as Indian Gooseberry, is revered in the Ayurvedic tradition thanks to its powerful health properties. Modern science has revealed that amla has the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) rating among fruits and vegetables, indicating its outstanding ability to fight free radicals and protect the body from oxidative stress. It also encourages hair growth and supports your skin health.†
It is particularly high in vitamin C, containing more of it per 100g than lemons, oranges and spinach! We need vitamin C to support a healthy immune system and also to produce collagen, the protein which keeps our skin plump and bouncy.
As a natural adaptogen, amla can help you to deal with the stresses and strains of daily life. Studies have shown that amla can curb potentially damaging excess inflammation in the body, too.†
