Taking Charge of Your Health
Saw them today in local Indian Market-possibly. Dallas area
@nesterhaus 20 times the vitamin C content of an orange and they have been curing cancer with C and real nutrition for year-thanks for sharing.
It is sad that people would use this as a hair tonic….
I love Amla and have been using it for years now as part of my health maintenence routine. So much so that i named my store after this great berry. We sell Organic Amla Powder at amlaberry.co.uk
It'd be wonderful if you could post it to this specific video on nutritionfacts. org. This way more people benefit from the response, and I can actually provide you with links (which I can't do on Youtube). Thanks!
You can buy fresh Indian gooseberries (ask for Amla) and dried powder in Indian stores all over US. Best is to get a pound of fresh fruit, cut it and remove the seed and crush the fruit in a grinder or stone mortar. Add little salt (good preservative), little musturd sauce (for taste), and olive oil to the juicy mix and cure it for a couple of days (u can also add red chilli powder). U can use it as a bread spread everyday for a few weeks. Use it everyday for best results. Store in refrgrtr.
Amla is known as Indian gooseberry and is a very common fruit in india.
TREMENDOUS!!! Thank you doc!
Wow! I didn't have any clue that Indian gooseberries are that medicinal.I was born and raised in Sri Lanka and I have had these berries when I was a little kid.Didn't know it's called Indian gooseberries until now :(.Thanks so much Dr.Greger ! Your videos are always BRILLIANT ! :).
I hope Richard Dawkins sees this…he has on record mentioned that Ayurveda is a lunacy and anyone taking Ayurvedic medicines is a fool…Various studies have been done on several Ayurvedic medicinal herbs like Amlaki or Amla , Aloe Vera, Gotu Kola etc that prove beyond a doubt that the ancient sages of India knew what they were talking aboutbut still people like Mr.Dawkins refuse to accept it..People can prevent disease through nutrition alone which some experts cannot tolerate.
perhaps one should speak to the many people that these simple fruits have saved instead of someone being paid big bucks by the pharm companies that cant make a dime off a gooseberry. Bet Richard will be the first to try Amla if he or a loved one gets cancer 🙂
Would you recommend it for daily consumption, say a teaspoon a day, like you've mentioned in the "A better breakfast" video? Thanks
I've never heard of this before, but think I will try it. Thanks.
I'm not trying to sound ignorant, but if Amla is as common as it is in India, and the people of India have such a short life expectancy, how am I supposed to believe of its nutritional value?
Unfortunately Amla taste very bad!!
while most ppl only know very few popular herbs here for ex: marijuana to smoking, actually, in the world, we are a real big garden that God giving us for free, and a lot wonderful herbs and flowering waiting us to be discovered and they also can making us very happy…naturally…:) most Asian traditional drs never want use chemicals at all so did most ppl know this for over thousands of yrs, but when they migrated to other places, they may forgot where they came from and all herbs their forefathers love to use ….it is regret…we should try our best to come back to happiness and peace, in mood and body, and spiritual too, and are aware how much great things giving to us for totally free from God and we also should not charge others by helping them to know before they died…by know nothing…of these great knowledge that our ancestors giving to me all free too….
Me thinks the good doc puts too weight into in vitro studies. Now show some in vivo results, and I'll get excited.
Can you take too much either in pill/powder form or dried/frozen whole berries…?
omg Ive been trying to figure out what I ate before that came in a little leafy package, it was the orange gooseberries you showed, I had them a long time ago but I havent seen them in the grocery store for a long time and couldnt remember what it was called, lol

But it did slow down normal cells… is that not bad?
How's that amla hair tonic working for you Dr. Greger?
Good information. In fact, Ayurveda is filled with such miracle fruits and herbs. And this is a 5000 year old ancient Indian wisdom which has survived millenia and is still being practiced today. Unfortunately, the treatments and medicines need the approval of Western Medical Community with a fancy paper full of jargon published in a journal and a Youtube video by a commendable MD to convince people to try something. It's sad. Western scientists and medical community should stop acting like American Idol judges. Your research is respected but you're 5000 years late. More often than not, western research is inconsistent and sometimes contradicts what has been published 2 to 3 decades ago (eggs, butter, cholesterol and countless other examples). In ancient science like Ayurveda, the facts are considered divine revelations and have remained bulletproof time immemorial. Stop judging and teaching the Sun as to how it should radiate heat and propagate light.
will you do an update on this you said you would months ago
But does the beneficial components reach the bloodstream?
Great info! Just added 3 frozen amla berries to my green juice!
Sounds like it's only going to become more and more expensive the more word gets out and demand outstrips supply.
Important : Amla is not a gooseberry !! Amla grows on a tree that belongs to the family Phyllanthaceae. Gooseberries grow on a bush of the Ribes family. Amla is called a gooseberry because it looks like one, but it is not. This said, gooseberries are probably also very healthy, but not like amla.
When you first try amla powder you’ll realize that it tastes very bitter. Try adding it to juice or tea so you can still get the amazing benefits without the bitterness.
an article published by BMC Complementary & Alternative Medicine, tested in vitro amla extract against a host of free radical compounds including superoxide, nitric oxide, and hydrogen peroxide, among others. After a course of tests, the researches determined that amla extracts were a potent and effective source of natural antioxidants.
I found a 7-oz bag of dried Indian Gooseberry (Amla) for 2.49 USD at a nearby Indian market 🙂 Not bad!!
best amla is pakistani amla wich is organic . indian amla calld banarsi amla its not that much good how much you thinking.
wht is the best way to use amla? how much to use? is amla dried powder good? 5gr a day?
It very bitter if you bite a chunk of it , recommended bite a little bit and it almost not as bitter or with salt.best use for people who hate it taste is to remove the seed and sun dried.or just put in your mouth like a candy and chew a tiny bit be careful you may accident swollen.
Is there a powdered brand you recommend?
How much powder is safe to consume a day? 2g? 5g?
I really appreciate what Dr.Michael Greger has done to transform our conventional medical thinking toward better health. So, inspired by him I jumped out of my comfort zone and now I am on target to make one video every 48 hours and already started a YouTube channel as a dermatologist and Naturopath 2-3 weeks ago regarding how natural medicine and healing power of our own skin and body could cure the current hair and skin issues and chronic diseases such as Diabetes, Cancer, Autoimmune diseases.I would love some support/feedback so please hit subscribe and check my current videos and the one I am about to publish in the next 48 hours. Peace to you all
