Amalaki Powder (India) 100g
Origin and things worth knowing
Emblica officinalis - the fruit of the Amla tree, which is native to all of India, is one of the most important medicinal plants in Ayurvedic medicine.
Amalaki (or Amla) has such a comprehensive health-promoting effect that it is often described as a "divine medicinal plant" in Ayurvedic texts.
The amla fruit is considered the most concentrated source of vitamin C in the plant kingdom - it has about 30 times the amount of an orange!
The vitamin C in the amla fruit is stable against heat and light and can be absorbed particularly well by the organism.
Amla improves the absorption of calcium in the body and thus supports the mineralization of teeth, bones, hair and nails.
Furthermore, Amla supports the absorption of iron in the body and promotes blood formation.
Together with a protein-rich diet, Amla promotes the development of muscle tissue and is therefore also of interest to athletes.
Amalaki is a valuable component of Triphala, a 3-component Ayurvedic remedy with incredible effects and a very broad spectrum of effects.
The 3 components are Haritaki, Bibhitaki and Amalaki and are mixed in a ratio of 1:1:1.
