Organic Amla Extract
Amla, also known as Indian Gooseberry, is one of the most important medicinal plants in Ayurvedic medicine and has commonly been known as a potent rasayana (rejuvenator). In Ayurveda, this fruit has been found useful in stalling degenerative processes, promoting longevity, purifying the blood, enlivening the body and enhancing intellect. Amla serves as a rich source of vitamin C (more than oranges, lemons, and tangerines) and is a fruit that has been used to help treat the common cold and fever, as well as acting as a diuretic, laxative, digestive, adaptogen, anti-inflammatory, hair treatment and more.
Scientific experiments have shown that amla contains antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antidiabetic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and wound healing properties to name a few. Some preclinical studies with both in-vitro and in-vivo systems have shown that amla contains powerful anticancer, chemopreventive, cytoprotective (cell protection) and radioprotective (protection against harmful effects of radiation) effects. Amla is currently being studied extensively for its possible use as a cancer preventative and therapeutic drug in humans.
