Amalaki, also called “Indian Gooseberry,” is called “The Mother” in Ayurveda due to its support of the entire body/mind and immune system. In Ayurveda, it is classified as a “rasayana,” meaning it has restorative properties. In Buddhism, the Amalaki tree was a gift to the Buddha’s students from the Emperor Ashoka.
Amalaki is a wild-crafted product, meaning it is gathered from the forests of India rather than cultivated by farmers. ORGANIC INDIA Amalaki is harvested from forests that are designated as “organic” environments by the government of India — this ensures that wild Amalaki trees are protected from environmental pollutants and over-harvesting.
Amalaki Body and Mind Benefits
Amalaki is categorized as an adaptogen, meaning that it supports the body’s healthy response to environmental, physical, and emotional stress. It is also considered a “rasayana,” or rejuvenator.
Because of its high Vitamin C content, it has traditionally been used for seasonal coughs and influenza as well as protection from Vitamin C insufficiencies such as scurvy. In Ayurveda, Amalaki is believed to tonify the heart, support healthy blood sugar levels, and protect and strengthen the liver and digestive system.
Where is Amalaki grown?
ORGANIC INDIA Amalaki is sourced from organic-certified forests in Madhya Pradesh, India.
