Amla (Ah m - l ah), noun

Origin: Hindi

Indian gooseberry.

Amla is an Ayurvedic medicine and antioxidant rich-super-herb that is celebrated for its rejuvenating effects.

Although its calming and healing powers provide support to the organs, immune system, and overall aging process, Amla is most beneficial in its ability to aid in digestion. One of the amazing things about this superherb is that it doesn’t heat the body the way that other digestive foods and herbs do. Instead it has cooling and laxative properties that naturally clear the intestinal tract (aiding in digestion) while soothing the body.

It also helps to protect your skin against the damage of free radicals, including ones from UV light and pollution.

Amla is great for the nervous system, which translates in better brain health. That means increased concentration and memory as well as a protection from brain degeneration.

According to ancient Ayurvedic texts, the energy of amla also promotes longevity, intelligence, youthfulness and respectability due to a person’s pure nature nd good health.

We love amla in powder form, mixed into smoothies or oatmeal, or as an afternoon pick-me-up in warm milk with a splash of honey. Amla, the fruit, can also be eaten cooked or steamed.
