THE AMALAKI STORY
THE AMALAKI STORY
By Jade Ellis
Amalaki, commonly known as Indian Gooseberry or Alma, is considered one of the most rejuvenating herbs in Ayurveda. Amalaki is one of the three fruits that are contained in Triphala. Triphala, is a herbal concoction which has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda. In Sanskrit, Amalaki means “the sustainer” and has traditionally been prescribed to strengthen the immune system and cool the body.
The main nutrient in Amalaki is Vitamin C. This herb contains an extremely high concentration of this Vitamin, and is one of the highest in the plant kingdom. Twenty times that of an orange! Amalki is also an antioxidant which supports the liver and is known to be beneficial at lowering cholesterol levels. This herb is also known to support healthy levels of stomach acid and improve digestion!
Due to the impressive amount of nutrients and the many benefits of Amalaki, this in turn is very beneficial for the complexion and the hair. This herb can moisturise, cleanse and support immunity of the skin. Amalki also does amazing things for the hair! This herb helps to boost absorption of calcium which creates healthier bones, teeth, nails and hair. Amalaki and its essential fatty acids, strengthens the hair follicles therefore prevents the thinning of hair with age and helps to maintain the youthful hair colour.
The high vitamin C content in Amalaki can help pre-mature greying of the hair and help to retain the colour of your hair. It has also been known to be an effective remedy for dandruff, dry and flaky scalp, as it has the ability to nourish the scalp from within. This herb can stimulate hair growth due to its high iron and carotene content.
Due to the massive array of hair beneficial properties that Amalaki has, Fushi has used this herb as a main ingredient in our new formulated shampoo. Our new ‘Argan and Amalki’ shampoo is hair reviving, Ayuverdic herb infused and enriched which boosts lustre, shine and strengthens the hair. Regularly using Amalaki in your hair can prevent breakage and split ends and encourage the growth of the hair!
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
