The fruit of the Amalaki tree (Emblica officinalis) is an amazingly useful Ayurvedic herb. It is traditionally used to promote healthy digestion and elimination, while nourishing and strengthening the body.
Amalaki is one of the three ingredients in the most widely used Ayurvedic formula – Triphala. Considered a general panacea for almost all imbalances, Triphala is excellent for detoxifying and rejuvenating the body. Amalaki is generally taken in place of Triphala by those with excess heat in the digestive tract. Amalaki's cooling action removes excess heat from the GI tract, supporting a healthy stomach lining and the proper function of digestive acids. It gently detoxifies the body by purifying the blood and supporting healthy, regular elimination.
Amalaki is also a potent rejuvenative for the entire body. It is said to promote the production of red blood cells, support cellular regeneration, increase lean body mass and support proper function of the liver, spleen, heart and lungs. It has also been used to promote healthy eyes, bones, teeth, hair and nails. It improves the digestive fire, maintains a healthy blood sugar level already in the normal range and is a rich natural source of antioxidants.
Amalaki is the main ingredient in the traditional Ayurvedic jam called chyavanprash. This tasty remedy has been used for centuries as a way to deliver the healing benefits of Amalaki deep into the tissues. For more information on chyavanprash click here.

Amalaki is available as a bulk powder or in tablets. The powder is generally used to make a tea, while the tablets provide a more convenient option for administration.
