Mother Nature gave us an excellent source of Vitamin C in the Amla berry - the Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis). Amla, honored for over 5,000 years in Ayurvedic medicine for its tonifying, anti-aging and immune enhancing properties, is packed with whole food Vitamin C and naturally occurring bioflavonoids. Research shows that Amla is 12 times more assimilable and creates more potent medicinal effects than synthetic Vitamin C
Amla-C Plus is a unique combination of 80% Amla berry and 20% Spirulina. Amla increases protein synthesis and is useful for hypoglycemia. It contains high levels of the antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and tannins, which inhibit the degradation of Vitamin C and act as cellular protective agents against oxidative stress. Many of the great Ayurvedic tonics are based on Amla and have been used for centuries as a powerful digestive aid, liver stimulant, with anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-histaminic, anti-viral and antacid properties. It has also been used to increase lean body mass and help with weight management. Both Amla and Spirulina are unique in Ayurvedic medicine because they are both tridosaghna, meaning they are beneficial for all body types.
Amla-C uses no tableting aids, binder or fillers. Certified herbicide and pesticide free.
