Stop wasting money on expensive weigh loss diet- Eat this simple fruit instead

Phyllanthus emblica, which is also known as emblic, emblic myrobalan, myrobalan, amla, Indian gooseberry or Malacca tree, from Sanskrit amalaki is a deciduous tree of the family Phyllanthaceae.

Amla is a very special fruit consisting of antioxidants that are effective in reducing the cell damage which reduces the free radicals that might cause disease or damage in the human body.

It has eight times as much vitamin C as an orange, twice as much as the antioxidant strength of acai berry and about 17 times that of a grenade. The humble Indian gooseberry, commonly known as amla, really deserves its status as a superfood.

The translucent green fruit, deriving its name from the Sanskrit word 'Amlaki' meaning 'nectar of life,' can protect us from countless ailments, be it common cold, cancer or infertility. Doctors in Ayurveda say that amla will help balance the body 's three doshas (Kapha / vista / pitta) and eradicate the root cause of many diseases.

But in this article, I am going to explain how you can burn out fat with the help of this amla fruit.


burning of fat is the least talked-about the most exciting benefits of Amla. A protein found in amla helps to avoid cravings. Normal consumers should drink a glass of amla juice every morning before a meal.

Many Nutritionists confirms that amla also boosts metabolism, which makes one shed weight faster. Amla has high fiber content and tannic acids that help loosen constipation and make you look less bloated.

Amla's astringent and antibacterial properties improve one's immune system. Oxidative damage causes a large number of health problems including cancer – when body cells use oxygen, they leave behind toxic by-products called free radicals. Given that amla is a potent antioxidant, the damage can be avoided and remedied.

Weight loss

Weight loss is never as easy as it sounds and everybody who has tried to lose weight knows how hard it can get. You need to find a specific regime that works for you, from the right diet to the workout programme. That being said, there is no denying that there are certain things you can do to optimize or accelerate your mission, such as having certain helpful foods included in your diet.

You should be consuming less calories or burning more calories than you consume for optimum weight loss and fat burning. Amla or gooseberry can be the right fruit to help you get faster toward your goal weight.

The reason amla can be an excellent fat-fighting superfood for the belly is due to its nutrients. Vitamin C helps the immunity to fight toxins and inflammation, and to improve metabolism. In addition, the fruit also contains good hypolipidaemic properties that fight off symptoms associated with fatty liver and cholesterol and work to prevent obesity and to better manage your body weight. All of these benefits help keep the extra fat away, or get rid of it effectively.

Alma are also good for Detox

Detoxes can also be a safe way for weight watchers to combat the water bloat, or get rid of any of the obesity symptoms. Amla, rich in fiber content, can be excellent in flushing out body contaminants, controlling digestion, holding the gut healthy and battling constipation. This helps you get a little easier off weight. Besides that, amla is also good for combating the symptoms associated with diabetes-induced weight gain by regulating the body's blood sugar levels.

How to use it

Because gooseberries are bitter in taste, it may not appeal to tastebuds of all. Having it as a juice can thus be to your advantage. You should try adding amla juice into your normal diet to lose weight. 2-3 tablespoons of amla juice or powder, mixed in water, can be eaten everyday with an empty stomach to detoxify the body. It is even more beneficial to have it in warm water.


Amla in nature is mildly acidic so it does not appeal to those with sensitive stomachs. Aside from this, it is important to supplement your diet with an effective exercise routine to effectively lose weight and prevent the weight from returning.
