Amla or Indian Gooseberry is certainly a wonder fruit. Nourishing to the body when taken internally, in India it is used to make chutney and can also be used in smoothies. It has heaps of health benefits when taken internally such as balancing acid in the tummy, flushing out toxins and increasing vitality. It is also said that Amla nourishes the brain function, supports the heart, improves muscle tone and eliminates free radicals. It is also just as fantastic for the skin and hair.
High in anti-oxidants like Vitamin C, it contains minerals and other vitamins including Calcium, Phosphorous, Iron, Carotene and Vitamin B complex. Used traditionally in haircare products, it enriches hair growth, strengthens the roots, helps maintain a natural hair colour and improves the hair’s lustre. You can find Amla in our Brahmi, Herbal and Neelini Hair Oils, the Amla Shampoo and Neelini Mask.
When used in skincare, it brings a natural glow and brightness to the complexion due to its high content of Vitamin C. It also addresses pigmentation marks and lightens the complexion.
You can also find Amla in our Karporadhi Oil that works to detoxify, reduce fluid retention and soothe aches and pains. A massage with the oil will help to lift skin tone and of course soften.
