Amalaki in Sanskrit means "the sustainer". One of the most powerful rejuvenating herbs so dear to Ayurveda Medicine. Traditionally used to strengthen the immune system, nourishes the cardiovascular system, supports digestion while increasing emotional energy and vitality.
I am glad of your interest in learning more about this magic herb so widely used in the est and Ayurveda tradition. Accordingly to Charaka one of the ancient scholar of Ayurveda “of all the Rasayanas, Amalaki is revered as one of the most potent and nourishing, the best among rejuvenating herbs.”
