Your Friend for Immunity, Fertility and Hair Growth

Align and balance your body with Amalaki (Amla)

Amalaki (Indian Gooseberry), is recognized for its rejuvenating qualities. Revered in India, this fruit and its tree, is regarded as sacred. Ayurvedic scriptures, hold the power of Amalaki in high regard, and view it as a powerful nutrient - a “super fruit”, that can balance circulation, enhance metabolism and maintain an overall stability in the body. Amalaki has the highest source of naturally occurring vitamin C, enhancing immunity and supporting cell renewal. Furthermore, Amalaki is an excellent detoxifying agent, healing and enhancing the liver function. Beyond, physical health, Amalaki also supports emotional wellbeing, by connecting with the heart chakra, the center for courage, compassion and union with higher planes of consciousness.

A class loved by all:

Amalaki is such a powerful Rasayana. I will always remember that ‘it helps to love more and need less.’ And that it is yet another of the great plant beings that helps our hearts. I bought some Amalaki tree seeds and plan on growing it back home in Hawaii.

I had never heard of Amalaki before taking this fun, educational class. An eye-opener was all the good things amalaki is used for: immunity enhancer, anti-diabetic, richest source of vitamin C, and so much more. I loved the recipes and teachings on amalaki being a sacred tree.
