Everyone is familiar with amla or the Indian gooseberry, it is used in a variety of products like sweets, jams, powder, pickles, while some simply like to pluck and eat them. But are the health benefits of amla overrated? There is what we deduced about its health benefits.

Amla is known as a good source of vitamin C, but is that all? What are the other health benefits of the Indian gooseberry? Dr. Jaishree gives us a detailed list, “Amla has loads of benefits. It is a super food of Ayurveda due to its antioxidant property. It has beneficial effects on almost all the systems and organs of body.” She explains:

  • It controls blood sugar in diabetes
  • Lowers cholesterol level
  • It is a natural anti ageing agent for skin; nourishes scalp and hair roots and encourages hair growth
  • It improves digestion and alleviates constipation
  • It improves blood circulation
  • It ensures proper functioning of liver.
  • It is a strong immunomodulator and protects from the onset of many diseases if taken regularly
  • Amla is a good hematinic as it raises hemoglobin level

Apart, here we give a list of other sources of vitamin C, “There are many good sources of vitamin C beside amla. They are:

  • All leafy vegetables like palak, bathua etc.
  • All kind of peppers have loads of vit-c
  • Fruits like mangoes, pine apple, oranges, kiwi, strawberry, berries, papaya,
  • Vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, red cabbage, etc
  • Herbs like basil, mint, coriander, rosemary”

You can get these health benefits by including amla and the other vitamin C rich foods in your diet. On the other hand, if fresh produce is a problem, you can invest in some organic amla products.
