Amla in Honey benefits and medicinal properties

The Indian gooseberry popularly known as Amla in the north and Nellikkai in the south is one of nature's nutrient rich superfoods. This bitter fruit is called Amalaki in sanskrit which means the sustainer.

There are many ways in which this miracle berry heals your body but in this post we'll look at how it helps keep our liver healthy.  

Liver the single largest internal organ in the human body, works day and night to filter out the toxins from our body. If the liver function slows down, then toxicity will build in the body eventually breaking down the human system.

However, there are certain substances which are toxic to the liver itself and they are called hepatotoxic agents. The common hepatotoxic agents include ethanol, paracetamol, carbon tetrachloride, heavy metals, ochratoxins, hexachlorocyclohexane, antitubercular drugs etc. These agents are present in your everyday food and also in the medicines you take for common cold to serious diseases.

Research article published in the food and function journal titled “Hepatoprotective properties of the Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis Gaertn)” concludes that the Indian Gooseberry or Amla has Hepatoprotective properties meaning it protects the human liver from the above hepatotoxic agents.

When the liver is free to do it's job, it will remove toxins effectively from the body and helps keep your system clean and healthy. 

There are very few foods which you can take to help your liver function better, Amla and Honey are one such rare combination of foods.

What more? Our Amla in Honey is also a tasty treat which everyone from kids to grand parents will love because of it’s sweet bitter taste.
