Amla v/s Goji Berries
With lifestyle illnesses on the rise, everyone wants to boost their immunity, and vitamin C is essential for it. We often end up ignoring local sources of vitamin C such as amla [the Indian gooseberry] and hanker for the fancier goji berry.
While goji berry may be labeled as a ‘miracle fruit’ because of its many health benefits, the sour-tasting amla offers similar—if not better—benefits.
Our daily requirement of vitamin C is about 65 to 90 gm. One serving of amla contains 600 mg of vitamin C, and if juiced, its value increases.
When it is dehydrated, amla provides 2,428 to 3,470 mg of vitamin C. Even when it’s dried and turned into powder, it retains as much as 780 to 2,660 mg of vitamin C.
Easily available at most local grocers and vegetable vendors, the immunity-boosting fruit has a bunch of other health benefits: It balances stomach acids, strengthens the heart and lungs, improves skin and hair texture and is an anti-carcinogenic.
Eat it fresh and sprinkled with sea salt or chop it into small pieces and toss it into your favorite salad for a dash of tartness.
