AMLA Phyllanthus emblica

Amla3 Amla at Kyogle in Orchard Amla

The Amla or "Indian Gooseberry" is a small leafy tree that 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.
The amla fruit is often referred to as the "Indian Gooseberry" because of its edible, very tart taste. It is also very high in pectin making it ideal for jam and chutneys. The tree begins to yield fruit from the third year onwards and the productivity levels are good.
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 kilo 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. This oil is one of the world's oldest, natural hair conditioners renown for rejuvenating hair that is dull and damaged.
