About Amla


The amla fruit (Phyllanthus emblica), also known as ‘Indian gooseberry’ or ‘Amalaki’, is a fruit that has quite a rich history in Ayurvedia. The amla tree, which gives rise to the fruit, is a deciduous medium-sized which can grow to a height of about 6 meters. The tree grows best in tropical and subtropical hilly and mountainous regions. It is hence quite popular in South and South East Asia, especially in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Thailand, Bangladesh, China, Malaysia and Indonesia.

The amla tree is propagated through seeds and can grow vibrantly in both heavy and light soils. The tree is protected from strong winds and sunlight/rain during the heavy monsoon seasons. It starts bearing fruit after 7 years and this can go on for 65-70 years. In as much as the fruits are the most beneficial parts of the amla tree, the other tree parts also have relative importance in herbal medicine: roots, seeds, leaves and bark.

Before people knew of its limitless health benefits of the amla fruit, it was considered a wild fruit since it was found in plenty in the wild. The earliest narrative on the use of the amla fruit is traced back to Hindu mythology. It is believed that there was a heated up argument between the Hindu gods and demons, after which a fight ensued. Tears rolled down the eyes of Amrit and once they hit the ground, the amla tree was created. To date, the furit is highly revered and is a crucial element in Hindu religious traditions and rituals. Also, during World War II, different products e.g. candies were made from dried amla fruits, and given to the Indian soldiers to replenish their energy levels. The rich source of vitamin C provided the energy they needed quite rapidly.

The amla fruit has a mixture of varying tastes: sour, sweet, bitter, pungent and astringent. To date, there are people who still add salt or red chilli to the fruits to make them more pleasant-tasting. The amla fruit stands out due to high vitamin C (ascorbic acid) content. It contains as much vitamin C as quite a handful of oranges and bananas. The vitamin C content is as high as that of about 20 oranges. It also has high amounts of fiber and pectin. The fruit is also quite rich in quite a number of polyphenols, especially flavonoids and tannins. Some of these polyphenos include ellagic acid, galli acid, quercetin, corilagin, chebulinic acid, leutolin, and chebulagic acid among others.
