Nature's Most Powerful Antioxidant
Amla - The Strongest Anti-Aging Rejuvenative
Amla, the Indian Gooseberry, is considered a sacred tree in India since the fruit is a well-known potent antioxidant and
is very nourishing. Because of its sour taste, the best way to take Amla is in supplement form.
Amla is the richest source of Vitamin C in natural form (30 times the amount of Vitamin C found in oranges),
and contains rich minerals, amino acids and pectin.
What is most important is that Amla's antioxidant Vitamin C,
unlike synthetic Vitamin C, does not lose its value through processing due to the presence of tannins in Amla.
Because of this, Amla is found to be one of the strongest rejuvenatives in Indian traditional medicine.
It is referred to in ancient text as the best medicine to prevent aging.
It's worth emphasizing again: Amla contains the richest Vitamin C that does not get
oxidized because its tannins retard the oxidation.
But, there is much more that Amla has to offer.
Ayurvedic Use of Amla to Lower Cholesterol
Achieving lower cholesterol is one of the best ways to protect yourself from heart attack and stroke. Cholesterol can build up
and form deposits in your arteries. These cholesterol deposits can clog arteries or, in some cases, completely
HDL is often called the "good" kind of cholesterol because it helps remove unneeded cholesterol from the body. If your HDL is
below 40, you are at high risk.
LDL is the "bad" cholesterol; it's made up primarily of fat and is a particular risk factor for heart disease. If your LDL is
160 or above, you are at high risk.
If any of your cholesterol numbers are in the high risk category, you're at an increased risk for heart disease.
Amla's pectin decreases serum cholesterol in human beings. It inhibits platelets aggregation and lowers
cholesterol levels. Amla has been shown in studies to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol by 16%
while increasing HDL (good) cholesterol by 25%. It also regulates blood sugar and prevents lipid peroxidation.
Three clinical studies found that 500 mg of Amla a day for three months raised
levels of HDL cholesterol and lowered triglyceride and C-reactive protein (CRP)
levels. This is a huge achievement in supporting the three critical markers of
There is really nothing else out there besides high-dose
fish oil that naturally lowers triglyceride levels. And raising HDL is one of
the hardest things to do, but is the most important thing in terms of our
cholesterol health. Although it is one of the hardest things to accomplish, Amla
does it well, and with great ease.
Amla Reduces Your Risk of Gallstones
Amla is a gift of nature to mankind. Gallstones develop when there is an excess of cholesterol in the bile.
Simply taking Amla daily can cut your risk of gallstones by nearly half, because Vitamin C is a factor in helping
to convert cholesterol into bile acids in the liver.
Other Ayurvedic Use of Amla
Amla has anti-bacterial and astringent properties that help prevent infections
and heal ulcers. It is used as a laxative to relieve constipation.
In Ayurveda, Amla is used as a cardiotonic, antipyretic, antidiabetic, cerebral and gastrointestinal tonic.
It raises the total protein level and balances the body weight due to positive nitrogen balance.
Amla is a very powerful anti-inflammatory herb. It is useful with eye problems especially with inflammations.
In recent Ayurvedic studies, Amla is the most frequently used as anti-cataract medicine perhaps because of the fact
that Amla is a potent inhibitor of free radicals, one of the causes of cataracts.
In Ayurvedic language, Amla is specific to pitta due to its sweet taste and cooling energy. However,
Amla is thought to balance both vata and pitta by virtue of its sour taste, and kapha due to its astringent taste and
Amla is traditionally used in India as a rejuvenative to promote longevity, and to enhance digestion,
relieve constipation, reduce fever, purify blood, reduce cough, alleviate asthma, strengthen heart function,
benefit eyes, stimulate hair growth, enliven the body, and enhance intellect.
Amla and Energy
Since first extracted 80 years ago, Vitamin C has been deemed essential for life and for maintaining optimal health
and well-being. It is the world's most widely consumed nutritional supplement. It has potent antioxidant properties
and plays critical role in facilitating essential biochemical reactions throughout the body.
Vitamin C is also necessary for the synthesis of the inter cellular cement "collagen". Collagen is responsible for keeping
the cells of the body together. Deficiency of Vitamin C makes a person lethargic and susceptible to infections, rheumatic pains
and intestinal disorders. Consuming Amla removes this lethargic feeling and makes one vibrant and upbeat.
Because human body can only synthesize and store a certain amount of vitamin C,
the body soon is depleted of it if fresh supplies are not consumed. Vitamin C, therefore, must be supplied through
dietary source or supplements. Vitamin C, however, is a water-soluble nutrient that is quickly oxidized and
excreted by the body, therefore its efficacy is limited.
The rich Vitamin C contained in Amla does not get oxidized because its tannins retard the oxidation.

How to Take Amla?
Take 1 or 2 capsules twice daily with meals.
Allow several weeks for benefits. The use of natural products provides progressive but long-lasting results.
Amla and Mukta Vati can be taken together without any known issues.
Amla does not have any known interference with any drugs/medications.
Amla works OK with diabetic medications.
Standard total Vitamin C intake per day should not exceed 1000 mg. If you are taking supplements that contain Vitamin C,
you would need to adjust your Amla dose based on the amount of Vitamin C that you are already taking.
Dietary and Life Style Recommendations
To regulate your cholesterol without drug, the following life style guidelines are highly recommended:
To help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, you may also want to avoid or reduce saturated fats (usually found in animal products like
meats, eggs, and dairy), and trans fats, which are formed when hydrogen is added to vegetable oil (think French fries
Research has shown that increasing "soluble fiber" by 5 to 10 gram a day reduces LDL cholesterol by about five percent.
Soluble fiber can be found in oats, peas, beans, apples, and citrus fruits.
Insoluble fiber can be found in whole-grain foods, wheat bran, many vegetables, and fruit with skin.
Evidence suggests that soluble fiber is more effective at lowering cholesterol, but both types of fiber are important for your health.
So fill up on the healthy fats found in vegetable oils, nuts, and avocados, and cut back on higher-fat foods like red meat,
whole milk, and of course, those tempting chips and pastries.
Even moderate exercise is enough to boost HDL (good) cholesterol and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Study showed an increase
in good HDL cholesterol (and a decrease in LDL and total cholesterol) for those who walked or jogged about 8 miles a week.

We strongly discourage international purchases due to expensive international express mail charge. If you still want to proceed, please be
warned of the following notices as well.
If you are outside of the US, it is advisable that your purchase does not exceed 3 bottles, so as

This is particularly likely in Canada and UK.
International shipping to European Union is currently not available.
We are located in the US. Products are shipped by USPS with an email notice.
Due to USPS closing hundreds of sorting facilities in order to cut cost, their processing speed for mails & parcels
has become inconsistent. Sometimes, the speed is rather normal, other times, it may take 7 - 9 days for your package to arrive.
When you see the USPS "estimated delivery date" during tracking, it is important that you read that estimated date
as the beginning of a range of dates spanning over 5 - 7 days, instead of a definite delivery date.
For example, if the estimated delivery date is the 14th, your parcel may arrive any date between the 14th and the 21st.
