Amla fruit – Ayurvedic Powerhouse

Amla, also referred to as Indian gooseberry, is a small yet extraordinarily nutritious fruit. Indian and Tibetan healers have long considered this fruit sacred due to its many health benefits. A common ingredient in many Ayurvedic remedies for centuries, it has been used traditionally to support the hair, skin and nails. Native to India, this tropical tree can nowadays be found from Myanmar to Afghanistan.

Amla extract had a global market share of 35.39 billion USD in 2018 and that is expected to increase by 4.9% through 2025. According to a leading market analysis report, the growth is expected to be fueled by “rising health consciousness coupled with the growing demand for antioxidant-rich products”.1

Nutrients

Primarily known as an excellent source of vitamin C, amla is said to have up to ten times more vitamin C than oranges. It is rich in polyphenols (such as flavonoids, kaempferol, ellagic acid and gallic acid) and tannins. The tannin content of amla helps keep the fruit's vitamin C content intact even when the fruit is dried or processed. Rounding out its rich nutritional profile, amla is high in fiber, vitamin A, B complex, calcium, phosphorous, and contains iron in significant amounts.*
