Amla is also known as Amalaki or Indian gooseberry with the botanical name emblica officinalis or Phyllanthus emblica. Ayurvedic doctors and herbalists have used this natural product for thousands of years, and Western doctors are just beginning to discover its health benefits.

100% Natural Amla 40% Tannins
Standardized True Spectrum

Dietary Supplement

Amla (emblica officinalis or Phyllanthus emblica) is naturally extracted using only the finest quality fruits grown in the pristine environment of the lower Himalayan Mountains. The Standardized Amla extract provides tannins along with vitamin C and flavonoids without isolating, fractionizing or using toxic solvents, harsh chemicals, or gases.

Amla is known for its nutrient dense levels of food nutrients. This product is naturally grown or ethically wild-crafted without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or preservatives.

The manufacturing is focused on the tannin content and the vitamin C level in the product is not tested to see how many mg is in it. This standard process for amla is to focus on the tannin content. It is easy to obtain vitamin C from a number of other sources and amla is used medicinally for its content of several beneficial and unique substances.

Amla is found in a well known formula called Triphala. Amla is the Hindi name while in Sanskrit the term used is Amalaki.

Blood sugar management
Q. Is blood sugar control a benefit of amla extract?
     A. We have not come across well done human studies regarding the use of amla supplement, powder or oil for blood sugar control. Most of the research has been done in rodents but there is a great deal of practical experience with amla by practitioners of Ayurvedic Medicine.

Q. I have diabetes and take oral medication such as metformin. Would I need to reduce my dose of metformin if I take amla supplement?
   A. This is a decision you and your health care provider need to make. It is not possible for us to guess the effect of this herb on your blood sugar levels or interaction with diabetes medications.

We carry several highly popular all natural products formulated by a medical doctor. These include:

MultiVit Rx a daily comprehensive multivitamin for more energy and vitality.
Joint Power Rx with glucosamine, chondroitin and curcumin for healthy joints.

     A. We have not studied the benefit of amla oil in terms of skin care or hair health.

Cholesterol management
Q. I have read on another web site that amla is used in Ayurveda for cholesterol control. Before I buy it, I would like to know if this is true.
   A. Amla has been studied in rodents in terms of cholesterol but we have not seen human studies regarding the use of amla for cholesterol control and how it interacts with cholesterol lowering statin drugs such as Lipitor or Zocor.
