Antioxidants are substances that help prevent certain types of cell damage, especially those caused by oxidation.When certain types of oxygen molecules are allowed to travel freely in the body they cause what is known as oxidative damage which is the formation of free radicals.Free radicals are very dangerous to the body’s tissues and have been connected to cancer and premature aging. The body uses antioxidants to prevent itself from the damage caused by oxygen.
1 Amalaki equals 20 oranges
Amalaki is great support and nutrition for the digestive tract, among other wonderful benefits including optimal function of the inner and outer skin, arteries, blood purification and liver rejuvenation.Amalaki refers to the herbal use of the amla fruit, also called Indian gooseberry.
On a systemic level, detoxification begins with healthy agni (digestive fire), not only in the GI tract, but also in all of the tissues, and amla helps to balance agni throughout the body. Moreover, the elimination of toxins relies on healthy circulation, digestion, and elimination, and amla supports all three of these functions. Amla also has a particular affinity for the blood, the liver, and the spleen, and is therefore able to support the elimination of natural toxins while nourishing and protecting the body’s natural defense systems.
Removes contaminants from the liver
Regular consumption of amalaki helps the body to cleanse itself of toxins due to the large amount of tannins and flavonoids, bilious acid and antioxidants that contains. One study published in the magazine – Phytotherapy research, found that amalaki can protect the liver from negative effects of drugs, especially drugs against tuberculosis.
Prevents cancer and helps its treatment
While there are many compounds in amla likely to work synergistically against diseases like cancer, one called pyrogallol was shown specifically to have antiproliferative effects (prevents cancer cells spreading) on lung cancer cells in both in vitro and in vivo studies .
Natural cure for diabetes
Furthermore, there are additional studies which show that amla prevents the development of complications like diabetic neuropathy and diabetes-induced heart dysfunction in Type-2 diabetics. It seems like this incredible fruit, amla, has a positive effect on people with diabetes and can boost the health of the cardiovascular system, too.
It relieves stomach aches
Numerous abdominal issues can be solved with this Amalaki fruit, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, infections and other digestive problems.
For stunning skin, hair and nails
Amalaki is a natural ingredient which rejuvenates the entire organism. Aside from protecting the organs from free radicals and oxidative damage, it also has a beneficial effect on tissue rejuvenation.
Accelerates skin healing
Amalaki Powder is an all-round tonic perfect for restoring hair, skin and liver tissue. It is also an aphrodisiac and a mild laxative.
Mask which stimulates growth and nourishes the hair
Amalaki is used traditionally to keep the hair’s natural color and to keep it from falling out, especially as we age. An easy treatment is to make an Amalakipaste, a paste of medium thickness works well and can be applied with a brush or the hands just as we did with the oil in. If you find this method difficult, you can make a thinner paste and put it in a squeeze bottle, then apply to sections of the scalp. Once you’ve applied it to the scalp, also apply it to the remaining hair.
