The Indian Gooseberry, or Amla, is a tangy seasonal fruit available during the winter months. It is a fruit with a peculiar mix of tastes, containing five of the six tastes from bitter, pungent, sweet to astringent and sour and is famous in India as a health and beauty aid. Popularly known as Amalaki in Sanskrit (sustainer) or Dhatri (Nurse), this tiny fruit is a known powerhouse of goodness, packed with nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, potassium, fiber, minerals, and vitamins.
Amla balances stomach acids, improves food absorption and regulates the functioning of the nervous system. It can be used in the following ways:
- For the treatment of infections - Mix dried Amla powder and lime, sugar candy together and consume it.
- For eliminating intestinal worms - Drink 20 ml of fresh Amla juice daily.
- For curing mouth ulcers - Mix honey in a teaspoon of powdered Amla root bark and apply this paste to the affected area.
- For diabetes management - Regularly drink a cup of bitter gourd juice mixed with a tablespoon of amla juice to stimulate the pancreas and lower blood sugar levels.
Indian Gooseberry is very rich in Vitamin C and other nutrients like Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Carotene and Vitamin B Complex. Amla is also a powerful antioxidant. Many health problems are conducted by oxidative damage (when body cells use oxygen they produce by-products that can cause damage). Antioxidant agents prevent and repairs such damages. Here are some of its benefits:
- Hair Care: Amla is used in many hair tonics. It enriches hair growth. It strengthens the roots of the hair, helps to maintain colour and luster. Eating fresh Amla or applying its paste on hair roots improves hair growth and colour. Amla oil is very popular in India as it serves as a natural hair growth booster thereby preventing hair loss.
- Eye Care: Taking Gooseberry juice with honey is good for improving eyesight. It improves nearsightedness and cataract and reduces the risk of intraocular tension.
- Diabetes: According to Ayurveda, diabetes is a metabolic Kapha type of disorder in which diminished function of Agni (fire) leads to a tendency towards high blood sugar. The main cause of this is vitiated fat, urine, and Kapha build-up due to lifestyle. Diabetes is treated by amla’s microcirculatory and Ojas enhancing properties. Gooseberry also contains chromium which has therapeutic value in diabetics. Indian Gooseberry stimulates the isolated group of cells that secrete the hormone insulin. Thus, it reduces blood sugar levels.
- Heart Disease: Gooseberry strengthens heart muscles. Thus, heart pumps blood flawlessly throughout the body.
- Infection: Due to its antibacterial and astringent attributes the Indian Gooseberry protects against infection. It is highly helpful in building resistance to recurrent infections.
- Diarrhea and Dysentery: Due to its strong, cooling, and laxative properties Gooseberry is a useful remedy for diarrhea and dysentery.
- Improving Appetite: Consuming Gooseberry powder with butter and honey before a meal improves appetite. It helps in balancing the Nitrogen level and thus increases weight in a healthy way.
- Anti Aging: Amla prevents health-related hyperlipidemia through attenuating oxidative stress in the aging process.
- Excellent Source of Vitamin-C: Amla is the most concentrated form of Vitamin C found in the plant kingdom. The Vitamin C in the Amalaki fruit is bonded with tannins that protect it from being destroyed by heat or light.
- Weak bones: Weak bones are due to Vata dosha vitiation. In this condition, Amla is excellent as it supports bone development and reduces Vata and balances the doshas.
- Fortifies Liver: Amla helps to purify the Rasa Dhatu (nutrient fluid) and Rakta Dhatu (blood). Thus, supports the functions of the liver. It also strengthens the liver and eliminates toxins from the body. Research shows that Amla helps to lower cholesterol as well.
- Enhances Fertility: By balancing Apana Vata and by nurturing all the Dhatus (body tissues), Amla helps to regulate menstruation in women. Amla supports the reproductive systems of both men and women and can help overcome the difficulty in conceiving. It is a Vrishya herb, which means that it enhances all the seven tissues (Dhatus), including the reproductive tissue. This herb nurtures the ovaries and the sperms and has a property called Garbhasthapana (enhances fertility and the possibility of conception). It is highly nurturing for women, strengthens the uterus and supports reproductive health.
Yes, Ashwagandha, Brahmi and Amla can be taken together as all three are Rasayana (rejuvenating) in nature. There is no harm in taking all these three together if you have a good digestive system. If your digestion is normal, then the mixture of these three can work in a very positive way inside your body.
The topical application of Amla juice accelerates wound healing and helps in preventing infection of the wound. Amla also reduces pain by blocking the inflammatory mediators in the body.
To reap the most benefits from the fruit, you can follow any of the following dosages (per day):
- 1-2 fresh Indian gooseberries
- 15 -20 mL of fresh juice of the fruit
- 4-5 grams of dried fruit powder (mixed with a glass of water)
Too much of anything is never good for the body, and the same goes for the Indian gooseberry:
- Since the Indian gooseberries are rich in vitamin C and fiber, consuming it in large quantities may cause acidity and constipation.
- It is known to aggravate symptoms of cold since it is a natural coolant.
- Gooseberries are rich in potassium, so people with kidney problems or high blood pressure must consume it with caution.
