- Additional info
Indian gooseberry or Amla, has historically been valued in the traditional healing arts of various nations, and due to its abundance of various minerals and vitamins, it has been scientifically proven to have many beneficial effects on the health of the body.
The bright green berries of Indian gooseberry come with a whole pharmacy, containing eight times more vitamin C than orange and about 17 times more antioxidants than pomegranate. In addition, the plant contains iron and calcium, etc. micronutrients essential for the body to function.
The plant is called Amla in Hindi, Amalaki in Sanskrit and Kyurura in Tibetan. In India, Amla is considered sacred precisely because of the healing properties of the berry. The best way to absorb them is amla tea, which is one of the most effective remedies for many ailments.
Tibetan medicine, which has discovered the therapeutic potential of various flavors of natural substances on the basis of experiential knowledge, considers Indian gooseberry (or Kyurura) to be very valuable because it has a perfect balance of sweet, sour, spicy and bitter tastes.
Due to this rich taste potential, it acts as a balancer for a very wide range of health problems. According to the teachings of Tibetan medicine, Amla relieves abdominal pain, menstrual disorders and other gynecological imbalances. Oriental medicine also knows Amla as a blood heat reducer, cleansing bad blood and balancing disturbed heat disorders (‘khrugs tshad’) and excessive heat in vital organs.
In other words, it is good for both acute and latent inflammation, prolonged rise in body temperature, or “persistent fever”, in the presence of colds. Tibetan medicine also uses it to cleanse the body of toxins or metabolic residues in general, both in combination with fasting and simply in case of spring fatigue.
Amla is an excellent body rejuvenator, either as a single component, as a tea or as part of a combination of three fruits (Drebu Sum Thang or ‘bras bu gsum’ in Tibetan). These three fruits are included in the Padma Hepaten dietary supplement and, in addition to the Indian gooseberry (Phyllanthus emblica L.), are also Myrobalan (Terminalia chebula Retz.) And Beleric (Terminalia bellirica (Gaertn.) Roxb.).

Interesting to knowAmla tea can be used in combination with a mixture of three fruits (Padma Hepaten).
For example, in the case of colds or long-term low temperatures (in the case of vernacular "persistent fever"): Drink 3-4 cups of tea a day, every four hours, adding 2 capsules of Padma Hepaten to a cupful of tea (you can sprinkle the contents of the capsule into the tea).
In case of acute onset of fever or colds and sore throat: Boil the contents of 6 capsules of Padma Hepaten with a glass of water on a low heat for 5-10 minutes, add Amla tea to the infusion and drink sips as hot as possible.
To clarify the sense organs, in case of spring fatigue, exhaustion: Once a day, mix 2-4 capsules of Padma Hepaten with 1 tablespoon of clarified butter (ghee) and take the mixture with Amla tea. A mixture of three fruits and clarified butter (‘bras gsum sman mar) clarifies the sense organs, gives strength and youthfulness.
