10 Benefits of The Indian Gooseberry (Amla)


Shredded Indian Gooseberry

Indian Gooseberry or Amla, is a fruit that grows natively in Asia. 

Remember when we were kids, we grew up eating some gooseberries topped with salt and chili powder. I still do the same.. 

I will not get into the scientific name of this fruit but shoot straight towards the health benefits of this wonder / super-food : 

Benefits :

1. The skin of gooseberry is covered with veins that help in making your hair smooth and silky.  Avoid peeling off the skin. A thorough wash is good enough. Not only just that, it also straightens your hair and helps in preventing dandruff and dry hair. 

2. Consumption of gooseberry juice can help your skin age slowly. Just make some Amla juice, add some honey to it and drink it.  Regular drinking might make it acidic because it contains Vitamin C. 

- Applying of amla juice is said to be beneficial as well as it helps to cleanse your skin, reduce dark spots, dead skin and reduces pigmentation. 

3. Good for your teeth, prevents bad mouth odour and strenghtens your bones.

4. Its a natural blood purifier. 

5. Good for your heart.

6. Helps in treating insomnia.

7. Reduces blood pressure.

8. Lowers blood sugar levels.

9. Immune strengthening effects.

10. Reduces heart burn severity and cancer risk. 

Potential Downsides (that people do not talk / mention about) :

1. Taking gooseberries as a supplement may have some side effects.

2. Because of its anti platelet functions, it may thin your blood and prevent normal blood clotthing.

3. Avoid consuming gooseberry if you're pregnant, conceiving or breastfeeding. 

4. Stop taking it before a surgery because of its bleeding risk.

5. There is also some evidence found that it lowers blood sugar levels, if you have type 1 or 2 diabetes or blood sugar management conditions. Please be mindful on it and best consult your physician.
