Happy August everyone!
Today we will talk about Amla (or commonly known as Indian gooseberry). It's latin name is Phyllanthus emblica. Indian gooseberry has undergone preliminary research, demonstrating in vitro antiviral and antimicrobial properties.
Experimental preparations of leaves, bark or fruit have shown potential efficacy against laboratory models of disease, such as for inflammation, cancer, age-related renal disease, and diabetes. It balances all doshas, enhances immunity, has a high content of Vitamin C, and is great for skin. Whenever you see someone with a lot of skin blemishes or acne, often times it’s due to them having a liver overrun by toxins. Since Amla helps to detoxify the liver and aids digestion (as well as being a good source of Vitamin C and other minerals), one of the results of taking it regularly is that it clarifies scarring, and helps reduce inflammation.
Amla is present in our Amlaki Cocoin Milk and Neem Amla Clarifying Masque.
