Amla’s original name Amalaki translates to nurse, mother and immortal. It was described in the ancient texts of Ayurveda as peerless amongst rejuvenating therapies. This famous adaptogenic fruit of India was most often used to protect the vital force of the body and feed the lifeblood of the immune system, making it an impressive superfood.* With decades of research conducted, its potential has now been observed in the immune and respiratory systems, as well as for skin appearance and overall detox function.*
We used to call our product “Amla C,” but when evidence became clear that Vitamin C was being misidentified by coeluting mucic acids, we changed our product name from “Amla C” to simply “Amla.” Until further studies either bear it out or help us understand Amla’s ascorbic acid content better, we have distanced ourselves from marketing our Amla as a measurable source of Vitamin C and prefer to just present it for its use as an antioxidant. It’s not that it doesn’t contain any Vitamin C. It’s just that it’s very hard to measure it by contemporary standards.

We can only recommend the dose on the bottle, which is our clinically-studied effective dose. Taking more or less of an herbal supplement than recommended should be discussed with your health care provider.
Can I take this product along with my prescription medication or my other supplements? Can I combine them? Will there be side effects?
Our product has not been studied alongside or against your prescription medication or alongside other supplements. We would be unable to answer that question. Please make sure your health care provider is aware of all the herbal supplements you are taking.
Regulations enacted by the United States Food and Drug Administration say that sellers of dietary supplements can’t make any claims about their products that suggest the treatment, diagnosis, prevention, or mitigation of disease. This is called the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994. Because your question suggests you are trying to treat a condition and find relief from symptoms, any answer to that regard would fall outside of the legal boundaries that regulate our industry. What we can say is that our products are formulated to support the normal function of organ systems and are rigorously studied for purity, safety and efficacy.
We don’t recommend any herbal product, ours or anyone else’s, to pregnant or nursing moms. If you’re pregnant or nursing, any supplement you take should first be cleared with your health care provider.
