Amla (Emblica officinalis),
also known as Indian Gooseberry, is a deciduous tree native to the
Indian subcontinent and is a staple in Ayurveda, the ancient medicinal
system of healing and longevity in India. The fruits of the tree are
used for the aforementioned ayurvedic applications, which include
treatment for diarrhea, dysentery, infections, and ulcers. Amla’s most
notable mention in the ancient ayurvedic texts, however, is as a
rasayana anti-aging compound.
Introduction to Rasayana
is a category of ayurvedic medicine that is centered on bodily
chemistry and alchemy, and amla’s status in this regard is centered on
its antibacterial and astringent properties. These promote longevity,
particularly through the protection they offer to the heart and lungs,
as amla is traditionally known to fight chronic lung problems as well as
upper respiratory infections. It is used in Ayurveda as a cardiotonic,
aphrodisiac, antipyretic, antidiabetic, cerebral, gastrointestinal, and
rejuvinative tonic. It is also used in the treatment of leukorrhea,
artherosclerosis and respiratory difficulties.
A Fruit Packed with Nutrients
amla fruit is one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C (ascorbic
acid), with up to 720 mg/100g of fresh pulp or up to 900 mg/100g of
pressed juice. Although only one inch in diameter, the Amla fruit has
the same antiscorbutic value as two oranges, and on a per-gram basis
contains 20 times as much vitamin C as a typical orange. The amla fruit
is a highly nutritious and important dietary source of vitamin C,
minerals and amino acids, containing a protein and ascorbic acid
concentration that is 3-fold and 160-fold that of an apple,
respectively. The fruit also contains a considerably higher
concentration of most minerals than apples, not to mention a wider array
of amino acids. Amla fruit is also rich in chromium, zinc, and copper.
Amla fruit also contains phyllemblin and curcuminoides, and the oil from
the seed of the fruit contains 64.8% linolenic acid and closely
resembles linseed oil.
It’s Not All About Vitamin C
amla fruit has gained popularity due to its vitamin C contents, amla
extracts (which unfortunately contain negligible amounts of vitamin C)
appear to have even more potent antioxidant potential. This suggests
that the effects of amla fruit are due to the overall effect of its
other polyphenols, rather than vitamin C alone. An in vitro study found
that even elevated levels of ascorbic acid did not show as much
antioxidant potential as an amla extract.
identified the active ingredients of amla to include a series of
diterpenes known as gibberellins, as well as flavonoids (including
kaempferol and quercetin), polyphenols (emblicanin A and B, punigluconin
and pedunculagin) and the triterpene lupeol. Also present are the
phyllantine and zeatin alkaloids and a number of benzenoids including
amlaic acid, corilagin, ellagic acid, ethyl gallate, putranjivain A,
digallic acid, phyllemblic acid, emblicol, and alactaric acid.
surprisingly, Amla’s reputation is supported by scientific studies
confirming its health-enhancing properties in a number of fields.
Cholesterol and Lipoprotein Metabolism
A number of published, peer-reviewed studies have confirmed amla as an
effective modulator of lipoprotein metabolism. Indeed, there is a strong
correlation between lipoprotein dysfunction and the aging process. One
Japanese study found that amla lowered total cholesterol levels by up to
26%, while simultaneously raising levels of PPARalpha (an enzyme that
is known to regulate the transcription of genes involved in lipid and
cholesterol metabolism) by 48% in aged laboratory rats. This is an
impressive expression of synergy considering that elevated lipid levels
and depressed PPARalpha levels have a strong correlation with the aging
process. Numerous other animal studies were equally impressive, which
further served to establish amla’s effectiveness in dealing with
abnormal lipid levels and cholesterol. In one such study, amla reduced
serum cholesterol and LDL levels by 82% and 90%, respectively. Studies
with humans have also shown promising results, with one double-blind,
peer-reviewed Indian study showing that amla supplementation
significantly reduced total serum cholestrol levels in both normal and
hypercholesterolaemic men after just 28 days. In another human study,
amla increased HDL cholesterol by 25% while reducing LDL cholestrol by
nearly 16% in addition to significantly reducing postprandial glycemia
in the oral glucose tolerance test by more than 12%.
Immune System Enhancer
Published in-vitro clinical studies reveal that amla offers cytotoxic
protection at the cellular level. It does so by reducing both the
immunosuppressive and free radical activity of toxic heavy metals in
addition to significantly enhancing the survival and activity of
macrophages (white blood cells that form the first line of defense of
the immune system). This has led researchers to examine any
anti-carcinogenic applications that amla may have, and clinical studies
in this area have produced promising results. These include one trial
where laboratory rats were administered with N- nitrosodiethylamine
(NDEA) to induce visible liver tumours, and only 11% of the animals
treated with amla developed such tumours.
Gastritis and Other Uses
Other functions of amla include that of an antacid. In one unpublished
study, the effects of amla were examined in patients with gastritis
syndrome. Amla was given to 20 such patients in a dose of 3 grams,
thrice a day for seven days, and was found to be effective in 85 per
cent of cases. Patients enduring hyperchlorhydria, a gastric condition
characterized by a build-up of an excessive amount of hydrochloric acid
in the stomach and a burning sensation in the abdominal and cardiac
regions, likewise benefitted from amla supplementation. Amla is a
carminative and stomachic.
Amla has also been examined for its cognitive-enhancing capabilities.
It also raises protein absorption due to its effect on positive nitrogen balance.

known to be a nutrient dense fruit. It is traditionally believed to
promote longevity, and is commonly seen on the market in hair products
to reduce hair loss and delay premature greying of hair.
