Amla is a superfood and we all know it by now. It has a rich nutrient profile and helps benefit our health in every possible way. In fact, since the year 2020, we have seen a sudden surge in the popularity of this vitamin C-enriched fruit. Today, people include amla in their daily diet in forms of powder, juice, tea or simply have it raw with some black salt sprinkled on the top. Science and Ayurveda both acknowledge that the benefits of eating Amla are manifold. "It is one of the items recommended by Sushruta for universal everyday consumption that transcended restrictions of body type and season", explains the book 'Historical Dictionary of Indian Food' by KT Achaya.
Consultant nutritionist Rupali Datta further states that a single serving of amla can make for up to 46 percent of the daily dose of Vitamin C, which helps protect you against the harmful effects of free radicals. "It helps in slowing down the aging process and is needed for collagen production hence keeping your skin, hair healthy and supports the immune system," she adds.
