Amla is also known as Indian Gooseberry, a sour and bitter fruit native to India. It’s a common staple in Ayurvedic medicine and it has the right to toot its own horn here since it’s known as one of the most antioxidant-rich foods on Earth.

In preclinical studies, Amla has shown to possess the following properties

  • Anti-fever

  • Anti-pain

  • Anti-cough

  • Anti-artery-clogging

  • Anti-stress

  • Heart-protective

  • Stomach-protective

  • Anti-anemia

  • Anti-cholesterol

  • Wound-healing

  • Anti-diarrheal

  • Protective of the liver, kidneys, and nerves

Amla is rich in antioxidants that help in fighting free radicals in the body. There is also research showing the demolition of cancer cells in-vitro. I don’t know about you, but I think this wonderberry should have a way higher price point than $15 a bag!

The taste of the powder is sour but is easily hidden in most smoothies. Here is my favorite ManGLOW smoothie recipe.

I’ve never tried the berries fresh, but I do routinely put a scoop in my smoothie. This is the brand I use.
