Amla (Emblica officinalis) Enhances Hair and Nails

Amla (Emblica Officinalis) means ‘sour’; another name for Amalaki means ‘mother’ or ‘nurse,’ indicating that Amalaki is the ultimate carer and healer. It is the primary ingredient in Cyavanaprasa, the elixir tonic paste that is superb for the lungs, all three dosas, and the reproductive system. Amla (Emblica Officinalis) aka Amalaki is excellent for reducing inflammation in the digestive tract, and assisting with bowel dysfunction and strengthening the heart.

In modern Hindu practice, Amla is considered to be sacred to both Vishnu and Shiva, and regular use of it prolongs life, memory, and youthfulness. It’s known as the best medicine to promote resistance to disease, nourish the blood, heal fractures, and prevent aging. Its name in Sanskrit means “the sustainer,” and it traditionally is used to provide nourishment to all the tissues. In India, Amla is used in conjunction with two other fruits named Haritaki and Bibhitaki, which makes up an Ayurveda formula called ‘Triphala’ handy for the digestive system.

What else is Amla good for?

Amla may also be used externally and works as an excellent moisturizer for promoting healthy skin, hair, and nails. You can also create a shampoo blend using Amla to nourish the hair and scalp and prevent premature grey hair.

You can also find Triphala in our Parasite and Worms formula.

    I have to say; I’ve been using Amla Legend products by SoftSheen Carson for a few years now. So, quite naturally when I came across this product. I was immediately drawn to it. I heard the alma fruit worked wonders for the hair but, I’ve learned a lot more about its benefits after visiting BackToYourRootsHerbs. Since I’ve been using this product, I’ve been in better moods, my heart rate has improved tremendously, my hair and nails are much stronger, and my skin is softer. I’m absolutely in love with Amla. Thank you BackToYourRootsHerbs.

    I thought my hair would not go past my shoulders, now I have hang time past that, and it is shiny I can’t say enough about this. I also use to have shortness of breath, and I haven’t suffered from that since taking this. Who needs the man or woman in the white coat? Unless they are going out to harvest natures remedies.
