Amla "Indian Gooseberry"

Amla is the name given to the fruit of a small leafy tree (Amlica Embillicus) which grows throughout India and bears an edible fruit. This fruit is highly prized both for its high vitamin C content and for the precious oil which is extracted from its seeds and pulp and used as a treatment for hair and scalp problems.

During colonial times the British referred to the amla fruit as the "Indian Gooseberry". It is edible, very tart and rich in pectin. Because of this, it is commonly used to make jams, jellys, chutneys and other condiments.

Another common use of this fruit is in medicines and tonics since it is extremely rich in vitamin C. In fact, it is documented that the amla fruit, on a per pound basis, is the world's richest source of vitamin C.

"Amla oil" is prepared from dried amla berries which have been soaked in coconut oil for several days in order to extract the oil soluble vitamins from the fruit. The filtered and purified oil is commonly called "amla oil". This oil has a long history of use as an aid for improving the health of hair and scalp. In fact, it is one of the world's oldest, natural hair conditioners. Customarily, a small amount of amla oil is applied to the hair after washing. This not only brings forth a rich, natural shine and soft texture, but also helps rejuvenate hair that is dull and damaged.

Amla Oil is used for no other purpose than treating hair. It is a natural hair conditioner with a long history of use.

I began using the Antioxidant lotion with Beta Glucan on my fingers eight months ago. I have the ability to grasp items securely once again. I rub it in twice a day. The lotion also is a great hand lotion, never any more split cuticles or hangnails! Love it...thank you so very much...
