Remarkably high in Vitamin C, Amla fruit is renown in Ayurveda for its health promoting powers and is used in numerous herbal preparations. For thousands of years this herb has been praised for its ability to create harmony between mind and body and to bring all three doshas (controlling elements of the body) into balance.

Maharishi Ayurveda Amlaberry uses the wild forest fruit, which is smaller and more costly but more highly regarded and said to be the most potent. Ayurveda describes Amla as having a muscle-building effect, and recommended for anyone involved in sports or for anyone who takes vigorous exercise.
