Updated: Jun 16, 2022

Amla in Sanskrit is Amlaki, meaning ‘nectar of life’. Alternatively, it is also known as Indian gooseberry. A superfood of sorts, this is a must-have. Rich in vitamins and fibre, it works as an indispensable addition to your daily diet.

Another aspect of Amla is that it has been a vital part of Ayurvedic medicines.

Features and Uses

The Amla berries have a greenish-yellow appearance and a fibrous inner texture. (Note that the powder is brown.) Amla has a sour and bitter flavour and can be used for cooking. It is most commonly consumed in pickle form or softened with oil, salt and spices.

Amla contains Vitamin C, which may help with tissue growth and repair. Moreover, it is abundant in Vitamins A and E, iron and calcium. Lastly, the high fibre and low sugar composition make it ideal for food items such as pickles, chutneys, fruit salads and even juices, jams and jelly.

- Pour about 8 oz water in a pan

Health benefits

Tackles Inflammatory and chronic issues

Amla has anti-inflammatory effects that may help tackle issues such as cholesterol, heart diseases and even cancer. What’s more, it can curb the intensity of jaundice and diarrhoea.

Helps boost immunity

The high Vitamin C content can help the body recover from illnesses such as fever and fatigue. Furthermore, Amla contains notable amounts of polyphenols and alkaloids.

Cognitive abilities

Amla has several flavonoids that may help with improved memory. The phytonutrients and antioxidants can support your memory by battling free radicals poised to damage brain cells.

Helps in dealing with diabetes

The fibre content in Amla is soluble, meaning it dissolves quickly into the body. Upon doing so, it can help slow the rate of sugar absorption. It may control blood glucose and lipid counts, thereby assisting people with Type 2 diabetes.

Enhanced digestive health

The fibre content helps regulate bowel movements. Another aspect is its Vitamin C content that can help the body absorb nutrients such as iron and other mineral supplements.

Improved eye health

Amla is rich in Vitamin A, which can help improve eye health. Vitamin A is known to advance your vision and may lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration. Additionally, Vitamin C can help battle bacteria responsible for causing conjunctivitis and other issues.
