Picture by: L. Shyamal

The old saying relating to an apple a day keeps the doctor away has been heard by every generation of children in the western world. And for good reason, as the apple is an excellent food source for the important vitamin C and 18 of 20 amino acids our body needs to function perfectly. Apples contain also other bodily agents like minerals and antioxidants which preserve our health and provide useful benefits such as being anti-allergenic, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory, to our bodies. A bit further away than the next apple tree, grows a compelling little fruit right beneath the Himalayan Mountains. This amazing fruit is destined to make a great hit on the American health market, it's name is Amalaki.

Amalaki Fruit or Gooseberry provides promise and hope towards rejuvenation of declining health

Although it is no larger then a common tennis ball this little yellow fruit is so rich in nutrition that you could call it the diamond of fruits. In India it is commonly referred to as the Indian Gooseberry. The scientific name of the Amlaki fruit is Emblica Officinalis. This very special fruit has been used in the Ayurveda medicine for centuries and has a great reputation for its healing powers. Over the great many years, Amalaki has accumulated many legends and tales surrounding its many usees. The more than five century old medical knowledge of Ayurvedic Medicine is also revered to as the "Mother of the Healing Systems".

The Sanskrit written Ayurveda contains some of the oldest and most detailed medical texts of the world and it contains an enormous amount of information concerning natural medicine. This age-old manuscript relates how to establish a balance in our everyday life through fundamental rules relating to nutrition and our lifestyle. It covers many subjects such as relaxed sleeping, stress management and body exercise as its fundamental components.

The Ayurveda describes more than 5,000 fruits and herbs in great detail. But of all the plants and substances described in this ancient document, the Amalaki fruit is described as the utmost effective fruit  for rejuvenation. In India, for many centuries now, the Amalaki has been consistently mentioned as Dhatri which means the Nurse or Mother. This is a tribute to this unique fruit as a caregiver or healer of our bodies. It is considered as a vital component to promote Ojas or producing the perfect digestion. The Ayurveda medicine teaches that Ojas is the sap of one's life energy which, when sufficient, is equated with immunity and, when there is not enough Ojas it results in weakness, fatigue and ultimately in sickness and disease.

The Amalaki fruit is a fountain of phytonutrients polyphenols, antioxidants, tannins, amino acids, traces of minerals, bioflavanoids and more. It would just be too much to list all of the chemical ingredients.

The one thing though, that makes the Amalaki fruit so different from other fruits is unquestionably the sheer amount of  Vitamin C this magical plant contains. Even though an Amalaki fruit is only about one inch wide, the fruit still contains 20 times more Vitamin C than an Orange! But that's not all, within its flesh it also containes a substance known as Dismutase which is one of nature's most powerful antioxidants.

The Amalaki fruit has received a great many reviews within the scientific community plus it has been the recipient of hundreds of scientific inquiries being completed concerning its role in combating a broad array of illnesses as well as promoting rejuvenation of the body and the mind. Here are a few of Amalaki's incredible benefits.

Many of the writings about Amalaki, found in India, indicate that the fruit is beneficial to the intestinal organs and it helps to reduce inflammation within the digestive tract. It also helps to strengthen the heart. The comments regarding the value of the Amalaki fruit have appeared in the Materia Medica. The manuscript lists more than 2,000 vegetable originating remedies.

The Amalaki fruit is commonly employed in the Ayurvedic medicine. It serves as an antipyretic, aphrodisiac, and cerebral tonic. Its popularity is also centered on its ability to act as a strong immune system booster, an adaptogen and as a powerful antacid. With Amalaki you practically can raise the total protein level and increase the body weight resulting in additional muscle-construction and more body mass.

Many of the ancient manuscripts have Amalaki as a medicine to prevent body aging. Of all plant related species the Amalaki fruit is believed to contain the richest supply of Vitamin C known to man.

Amalaki remains a beneficial ingredient in the removal of toxic waste resulting from poor digestion within the colon.In a study conducted in 2003, it was noted that Amla resulted in an increased cell survival rate decreasing the production rate of free radicals.

As with most other antioxidants, Amalaki contributes to an enhancement of one's immune system. Additional uses include colic, constipation, asthma, gout, anemia and to a certain extent mental disorders.

The Western countries are in a slow but steady process of embracing at least some of the medicinal practices used in the eastern world. Amalaki is readily available in tablet or powder form and recently it has been introduced as a liquid supplement known as Zrii.
