Amla is an excellent source of Vitamin C, a natural antioxidant, hence it helps boost your immunity, metabolism and prevents viral and bacterial ailments, including cold and cough. It also protects you against the harmful effects of free radicals. One of the most effective ways to add amla to your diet is to juice it and have it diluted with water every day on an empty stomach. BENEFITS#Regular consumption of amla juice helps in reducing cholesterol levels. Amino acids and antioxidants aid in the overall functioning of heart. It is also helpful in managing diabetes better as well as respiratory ailments like asthma. It helps in clearing the system and strengthening the digestive system. Along with Vitamin C, amla is also rich in iron, calcium, phosphorous and hence can be taken as a complete nutritional drink."Our hair structure is close to 99% protein. Amino acids and protein present in amla help in hair growth, tackling hair fall.**It is best to have amla juice first thing in the morning. Have a small portion (20-30 ml) diluted in a glass of water.
