How can I use Amla to lose weight?

How can I use Amla to lose weight?

Soak them in water overnight, crush them in the solution, strain and drink the mix everyday. Or you could juice it by blending amlas and mixing 1 part with 3 parts of water. This juice will ease bowel movement and improve immunity. Or the best way to go would be to eat them raw. Dip them in honey, as amla has a bitter taste to it.

Indian gooseberry or ‘amla’ is a well- known anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial fruit. Apart from being an excellent source of Vitamin C (more than 2 oranges), it can also help detox and boost protein metabolism which helps in weight loss. It’s no surprise that Triphala’, a traditional ayurvedic preparation for weight loss is  made from equal parts of amla, bibhitaki and haritaki fruits.

Amla can be taken in the following ways to boost weight loss:


Take few amlas and soak them in water overnight. Crush the fruits in the solution you soaked it in and strain it. Drink the liquid every day.


Pit the amlas, cut the fruit and blend it. You can either have this juice as is or dilute it with 1 part of juice and 3 parts of water. The juice eases bowel movement, strengthens immunity and keeps you active through the day. Drinking this the first thing in the morning flushes out all the toxins in your body and brightens your skin.

Raw Food

You can eat a few amlas as a snack every day. If it’s too bitter, dip it in some honey.
