Amla or Indian Goose-Berry Seasonal Fruits
Amla tree grows widely all over India bearing thousands of fruits per each harvest. Grafted trees are also cultivated for its valuable fruits which are the richest source of vitamin C gallic acid. Our ancient physicians knew the medicinal value of amla and they used it in various medicinal preparations like Chiyavanaprash, Fawarish-e-amla, etc., which are still the pride of Ayurveda and Unani medicine. These medicines are highly potent in the treatment of tuberculosis, general weakness, impotency, loss of weight, gastro-intestinal disorders etc.
In the scientific century one wonders about the therapeutic knowledge of these masters who be mere practice discovered the medicinal secret of amla without knowing about vitamins which were unknown and undiscovered then.

In this country amla is used in various other culinary preparation also in pickles, conserves, syrup, jam etc., are the example.

Amla being rich in vitamin c along with gallic acid, it should be used fresh and raw. Cooking it to prepare syrup, jam, etc., destroys Vitamin C. The best and cheap method of preserving with the medicinal and nutritional value of amla is to mix its juice with common salt and preserve in air tight containers. Regular use of this amla juice salt is the cheapest source of Vitamin C for our daily requirement.
