For thousands of years, the Indian population has been practicing the Ayurvedic lifestyle which includes a diet high in healthy herbs, foremost among them the Amla Berry. Not only can the Amla Powder have a positive effect on a person’s physical body, but it has also shown to be beneficial to a person’s mental and emotional wellbeing. The use of the Amla plant has grown in popularity worldwide, as it has shown to be amazingly instrumental in becoming a balanced, healthy, and overall happy person. Furthermore, one of the greatest assets of the Amla fruit, is its ability to rejuvenate the body in a gentle, non-harsh or premature way.
One of most well-known qualities of the Amla Powder is its ability to prevent early signs of aging and contribute to overall longevity due to its high amounts of antioxidants. Amla is also popularly used in hair products to prevent graying hair, as well as generally helping to thicken and strengthen hair through its high carotene and iron content. These nutrients prevent hair loss by not allowing free radicals to damage hair follicles or impact the hormones that cause premature hair loss. When using this product specifically in regards to hair nourishment, the Amla Powder can also be made into a paste and directly applied to the hair in addition to ingesting it. These high levels of carotene are also known to be beneficial for generally improving eyesight and especially used with vision related conditions such as macular degeneration and night blindness.
The Indian Gooseberry is also reportedly known to improve muscle tone, bones, and teeth. This is due to the fact that the Amla Berry helps our body absorb calcium in a positive way. Because calcium is a vitamin essential to the upkeep of bones and teeth, by using the Amla Powder, your body can naturally absorb more calcium which will ensure that your bones and teeth stay strong and healthy. Some of the most important muscles that the Amla Berry strengthens, are our heart muscles. This ensures that our heart pumps blood smoothly throughout our body. The chromium and iron found in the Amla plant reduce excess cholesterol buildup and increase blood circulation, improving our chances against strokes and heart disease. The high iron content also promotes the creation of new blood cells, which maximizes growth and regeneration of tissues while keeping the blood vessels and arteries clean.
The chromium present in the Amla Powder also has a therapeutic value for diabetic patients. The berry stimulates any isolated group of cells that secrete the hormone insulin, thereby reducing blood sugar in diabetic patients and keeping their body balanced and healthy. As part of the Amla Berry’s overall positive influence on our body, Amla can also assist in weight loss. The Amla plant is a slight diuretic, which means that it can increase the frequency and volume of urination. As we urinate, our body is cleaning out all unwanted toxins and excess levels of water, salt and uric acid. This natural cleanser will help lessen water bloating as well as decrease some of the fat in your body through eliminating urine which is made up of 4% fat. Furthermore, the Amla plant is high in both protein and fiber which helps our body’s metabolic activity and digestive systems, keeping our body looking and feeling great!
