Health Benefits:

Health benefits of the Indian Gooseberry or Amla can be attributed to the high vitamin C content.
Amla juice contains nearly twenty times as much vitamin C as orange juice.

One small Amla is equals to 2 Oranges if compared with Vitamin C.
The Vitamin C in the Amalaki fruit is bonded with tannins that protect it from being destroyed by heat or light.

Ayurved says that regular use of Amla can a help us live more than 100 years, a healthy life.
