What is Amla

Amla, often called the Indian Gooseberry, is an extraordinary superfood for health and vitality.  It is used to boost energy and stave off a number of diseases and common ailments because it strengthens the immune system, heart, brain function, and delivers rejuvenating effects to skin, hair and eyes.

Bursting with antioxidants, especially Vitamin C and polyphenols, Amla supports a healthy immune system and helps neutralize free radicals that attack bodily cells.  With antioxidants and the body’s natural immune defenses working together, oxidative stress on cells can be prevented and reversed. Oxidation can lead to cell mutation and swelling, the root cause of many life-threatening diseases.  Because Amla is deeply rich in potent antioxidants, it combats free radicals in unprecedented ways.  Furthermore, Amla is an antibacterial and astringent which helps the body fight off infections.  And Amla stimulates production of more disease-fighting white blood cells too.

Antioxidants, along with fiber and iron, are also what make Amla so good for the heart and helps manage symptoms of diabetes.  Oxidation of LDL cholesterol, commonly known as “bad” cholesterol, can lead to heart disease, coronary artery disease, heart attacks and stroke, among other heart conditions.  When LDL cholesterol is too high, it creates plaque that builds up along artery walls inhibiting smooth blood flow.  Amla helps lower LDL cholesterol and the oxidative process that releases free radicals.  Additionally, polyphenols found in Amla aid in reducing oxidation of blood sugar and decrease insulin resistance, both of which are vital to managing diabetes.  And better blood flow and stable blood sugar levels increase cognitive function and focus.

Amla is very high in fiber, making it a terrific digestive aid.  Fiber bonds to stool and helps flush waste through the digestive track.  This assists in a variety of digestive issues including constipation and diarrhea.  Sluggish digestion can bog down the entire body but proper digestion enhances body optimization.  Plus, fiber encourages gastric acids that help the body absorb nutrients more effectively.  Calcium absorption is greatly improved by Amla, which is important for bones, teeth and glowing hair and skin.

Antioxidants have fabulous age-defying benefits too, making Amla a wonderful way to reverse the hands of time internally and externally.  As we age, all bodily systems begin to slow and swelling sets in, causing a host of potential diseases and health problems.  Additionally, skin and hair lose their youthful luster and eyes begin to deteriorate.  Antioxidants along with essential vitamins (including vitamin C, B-complex and carotene) and minerals (including iron, calcium and phosphorus), help restore elasticity, encourage cell turnover, strengthen and renew a younger-looking appearance to skin and hair and support prolonged eye function.

Zokiva’s Amla Powder offers heart-pumping, immune-boosting and age-defying results.  Add this superfruit superfood to your diet to get the max out of your day and stay healthy for a lifetime!

Amla: Disease-Prevention Support Against Cancer, Heart Disease and Diabetes

Disease is a sad but all-too-real part of life.  None could be more serious than three of the leading diseases that plague people around the world and are among the leading causes of death:  Cancer, Heart Disease and Diabetes.  When it comes to our risk of these diseases, we have the ability and responsibility to take preventative measures to protect our own health.  For cancer, heart disease and diabetes, that starts with consuming a diet rich in antioxidants.  And for that, there’s no better source than Amla.

Amla is one of the world’s leading sources of a variety of antioxidants including Vitamin C, phenols, tannins, flavonoids and alkaloids.  These complex categories of antioxidants work in unique ways to detect and destroy free radical oxidative activity in the body.  Free radicals enter our bodies in a number of ways including through our diet, water, skin and personal care products, inhalants and sunlight.  Antioxidants work to attack these foreign invaders before they cause cellular damage and DNA change, but they also help heal and restore cells that are affected by some unavoidable free radical exposure.  When it comes to cancer, heart disease and diabetes, antioxidants are a vital part of prevention.

Amla Supports Cancer Prevention

In addition to powerful antioxidants, Amla has other characteristics helpful in cancer-prevention.  Amla shows strong anti-inflammatory, chemopreventative, antiproliferative, immunomodulatory, antimutagenic, cytoprotective and radioprotective qualities, all of which are added protection against cancer.  Amla supports and protects the integrity of DNA and RNA that can be damaged by heavy metal poisoning and other carcinogens.  Additionally, Amla contains a compound known as pyrogallol, which helps prevent cancer cells from spreading.  As more aggressive treatments and removal procedures become available, stopping the spread of tumor cells is a major goal towards remission.

Amla Supports Heart and Blood Health

Heart Disease can lead to heart attack, stroke and a variety of other heart-related health concerns.  Matters of the heart begin with the blood that keeps hearts pumping and the artery passageways in which blood travels.  Amla proves to reduce bad LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides, while increasing good HDL cholesterol.  This benefit is believed to be derived from the fruit pectin content in Amla, a natural inhibitor for platelet accumulation or blood clots.  Other positive research shows Amla stops lipid peroxidation and advanced glycation byproducts that can lead to cardiovascular disease.

Amla Supports Healthy Blood Sugar Levels

Diabetics can benefit from Amla as well.  In a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, Amla improves the metabolism of glucose and prevents excess glucose production.  Some research even indicates that Amla is more effective than common prescription medications for controlling blood sugar levels.  With high chromium content, Amla helps regulate carbohydrate metabolism, which helps the body produce blood sugar reducing insulin naturally.  And Amla is high in dietary fiber and low in calories, offering a natural superfood alternative source of sugar, carbs and protein for a healthy overall diet.

Amla has amazing and undeniable disease-prevent properties. With a simple sprinkle over cereal, mixture in jam or scoop into a smoothie, Amla Fruit Powder may lower your risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes.  Between its antioxidants and other unprecedented heart, blood and cell regulatory nutrients, Amla is a superfood of super disease-fighting proportions.
