Amla: A Weight Loss and Weight Management Superfood

The battle of the bulge comes to a head this time of year.  Everyone is eating their way through the holidays, breaks from their typical exercise routines and tends to be a bit more sedentary.  But then, the New Year comes around and we’re all frantically trying to start the year off right by eating healthier and working out more to lose weight. 

For some, it’s all about slimming down to a healthier weight – something they should have done a few years back.  Others are just trying to work off those 3 or 5 lbs they gained over the holidays.  And still others just want to keep the scale exactly where it is while still getting to indulge now and then.  Whatever your weight loss or weight management goals may be, we’re here to help with a powerful Indian superfood called Amla. 

The amazing Amla fruit is a terrific weight loss and weight management booster.  Amla helps speed the metabolism to burn through food faster.  Amla has specific nutrients that encourage digestive enzymes to break down food efficiently to send nutrients around the body.  It especially helps the synthesis of protein into energy.  And as we all know, protein is an essential nutrient for all cellular function.  With the added energy from efficient use of protein, our bodies feel alive and ready to move.  More physical activity leads to burning more calories.  Plus, Amla has a healthy dose of iron that helps create and deliver oxygen-rich blood throughout the body.

When food lingers in the body without be metabolized, it can lead to the build-up of fat storage in cells.  This accumulation of fat is terrible for the body.  First, you’ll see the visible signs of weight gain.  People store fat differently in their bodies, but the common fat storage areas are the stomach, hips, butt, thighs and face.  Extra weight also slows the body.  It’s like running with weights – the more excess fat on the body, the harder it is to operate.  Fat cells can block arteries, which can lead to poor circulation, heart disease, stroke and a variety of other diseases and health problems.

Additionally, fat cells and tissues are where toxins love to linger in the body.  And fat storage itself generates toxins.  Toxins wreak havoc in all sorts of ways from life-threatening diseases to acne-prone skin.  They also bog down the digestive tract and the entire metabolic process thereby contributing to weight gain and certainly not helping weight loss goals.  Fortunately, Amla contains a broad range of antioxidants, including Vitamin C, which flushes toxins from the body.  Antioxidants also strengthen cells to avoid potential damage from some level of unavoidable toxins and free radicals. 

We mentioned that Amla assists a smooth digestive system by helping produce digestive enzymes and acting as an anti-inflammatory.  Amla also contains a high content of dietary fiber, which works in favor of weight loss in several ways.  First, fiber is complex so it fills the body longer without needing to eat more calories to feel content.  This prolonged satiation is almost like an appetite suppressor.  Additionally, as fiber travels through the digestive tract, it extracts toxins to be expelled along side it as waste.  And again, less toxins means less burden on the body.  A “cleaner” system can function better, including a faster metabolism and more energy for weight loss and weight management.

As you’re fighting the bulge this season, try adding Amla Fruit Powder to your diet.  Its unique sweet-and-sour flavor is a great addition to breakfast or snacks such as yogurt, fruit, cereal, juices and smoothies.  The antioxidants, fiber and other multi-faceted nutrients of Amla can help boost your metabolism, increase your energy, support your digestive track and flush your body of toxins.  Amla is the perfect formula for your weight loss and weight management goals.
