Indian Gooseberry or amla benefits the circulatory system. It purifies blood, detoxifies the body, and strengthens the immune system. Moreover, amla improves the functioning of the liver and pancreas resulting in a soothing effect for your whole body and mind. Every part of this plant has medicinal qualities. It is considered good for skin and hair, too. As it stimulates hair growth, Indian gooseberry (amla) is used in various shampoos and hair oils. The amla fruit is sour and bitter which can be toned down with a little salt. Or, mix a berry into a smoothie and drink it this way. An Indian grocer might carry the fresh fruit.
