Amalaki has been used continuously in Ayurveda for millenia, and according the Vedas, the ancient books of wisdom, it was the first tree in the Universe. It has dozens of valuable molecular constituents, such as phyllembic acid, putranjivain, and Vitamin C. Fresh Amalaki is one of the world best source of Vitamin C with up to 1400 mg of relatively heat stable vitamin C per 100 gm of fresh fruit.
