Translated from the Sanskrit word ‘Amlaki’ meaning “nectar of life”. Also known as the Indian gooseberry, Amla is the superfood everyone must have in their pantry! It may be eaten sliced or diced, and it can also be used to make spicy pickles and candies. Grate some into a fresh salad or crush some to make amla juice with a dash of honey to sweeten the bitterness. This juice is extremely good for overall hair growth. Amla is rich in antioxidants, which reduce the risk of chronic health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. It is also an excellent source of Vitamin C.
