Amla: An Antioxidant Powerhouse

Antioxidants are a true gem in nature.  They have incredible prevention and healing powers, which is why they are so often found in foods we call superfoods.  One of the best superfood sources of antioxidants is Amla, an ancient Indian berry, also known as the Indian gooseberry.  Amla is packed with antioxidants, but almost as important as the quantity of antioxidants is the breadth and variety of them.

Antioxidants have two major benefits in the human body: they help protect and prevent health problems and they have anti-aging properties.  Various antioxidants work in different ways to perform these incredible roles, which is why a superfood that is abundant in different types of antioxidants like Amla is especially powerful for our health and wellbeing. 

Amla is fabulously rich in one of the most famous antioxidants, Vitamin C.  We all know this one to be an all-healing and immune-boosting nutrient.  There are 3,000 milligrams of Vitamin C in an Amla berry, which is 20 times more than an orange. 

But it’s the lesser known antioxidants that make Amla the phenomenal disease-preventing superfood that it is. Amla contains some super-charged antioxidants categories including polyphenols, flavonoids and tannins.  These antioxidants are diverse and complex, and they work together to combat free radicals from distressing bodily cells.  In fact, Amla is known as a “superb antioxidant” because its antioxidant potency has superior free-radical scavenging abilities.  In doing so, they support the immune system by deterring many forms of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, common age-related eye problems, inflammation, liver disorders, brain degeneration and digestive conditions, among other health and cosmetic issues.  Additionally, the “superb antioxidant” Amla demonstrates it can heal cells when oxidative damage occurs.  While the search for cures is underway, prevention is still our best chance at life-long health.

The second miraculous benefit of Amla’s antioxidant content is its anti-aging effects.  Natural aging occurs internally and externally.  Internally, it leads to many of the diseases and problematic conditions mentioned above.  As antioxidants protect and repair cells, and especially reduce inflammation, our internal body age can actually improve.  Similarly, antioxidants can help us improve our aging appearance by encouraging firmer, supple skin.  Antioxidants are amazing at protecting against UV rays that threaten the health and youth-factor of skin cells.  In addition to the potential for skin and other forms of cancer, Amla prevents the sun and natural aging from breaking down collagen that keeps the skin elastic.  When we lose collagen, sagging, fine lines and wrinkles can occur.  Amla can also help heal wounds and scars on the surface of the skin.

Amla is one of the world’s leading sources of a vast array of antioxidants.  Between disease prevention and anti-aging, antioxidants are a treasure hidden in rare superfoods.  At Zokiva, we’re unlocking the treasure chest of Amla antioxidants and welcoming you to enjoy the incredible benefits they have to offer.
