The Amla berry is used in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine and is known for its extensive healing powers and high antioxidants.
Cultivated throughout India and nearby countries, it has gained a following throughout the world as a “superfruit”, being a rich source of vitamin C. It contains a range of tannins, alkaloids and phenolic compounds, which suppress a variety of reactive oxygen species.
In particular, it contains the antioxidant ellagic acid, which has the ability to inhibit gene mutations and repair chromosomal abnormalities. Studies have shown that it may help stop the growth and spread of breast, uterus, pancreas, stomach and liver cancers.
It is also high in vitamin A, amino acids and minerals.
