Amla, scientific name Phyllantus emblica, is a plant of the Fillantaceae family and is known mainly for its fruits, similar to green plums, which have the same name. The fruits of amla are considered an elixir of long life, able to promote longevity and there is plenty of scientific studies supporting the Ayurveda tradition that considers amla one of the essential ingredients for good health. These berries have in fact a special protective action on the liver. In particular, amla, according to scientific studies, improves the functionality of this gland and prevents, or at least reduces, the harmful effects of hepatotoxic agents such as, for example, ethanol, paracetamol, heavy metals and carbon tetrachloride, also known as freon 10 (Thilackchand et al, Food Funct, 2013). Moreover, amla works by inhibiting the effects of fatty liver caused by a diet rich in fats (Cheng-Ze Huang et al, Food and Function, 2017). In addition to this, the fruits of amla improve digestion and act as a tonic to restore vitality and energy (Krishnaveni et al, J Basic Clin Physiol Pharmacol, 2010). But these berries are also able to protect the cardiovascular system, reduce cholesterol LDL in the blood (Yokozawa et al, Br J Nutr, 2007), decrease both fasting and postprandial blood glucose levels and at the same time increase the values of good cholesterol (Akhtar et al, Int J Food Sci Nutr, 2011). Finally, amla shows also antioxidant properties, useful to counteract the aging processes and free radicals with beneficial effects also on the look and tone of the skin, it has an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory action, supports the immune system and provides vitamin C (Baliga et al, Eur J Cancer Prev, 2011). You can find the amla in herbalist’s and chemist’s shops in the form of powder or tablets. Always ask your doctor before starting any treatment with amla to avoid possible interactions with medicine already in use.
