  1. My dad ships Amla powder to me from India and now I’m addicted to it.I dissolve 1/2 teaspoon in a glass of warm water and that’s my go to energy drink.My blood sugar and pressure levels would challenge the best of drugs 🙂 And the price I pay for it
    is $7 per kg !

  2. I was laughing so hard about his unexpected find of the huge variety of gooseberry products, because I happen to have also an Indian Food Store in my close neighborhood, where I shop for many years, and was surprised about the choice they provide in a fairly small store. Amla powder, fresh turmeric, ginger, and all the wonderful spices, and more. So also BULK BARN. Nutritional yeast, 100% Vital Whole Wheat Gluten (for Seitan), blanched ground almonds, buckwheat, all kinds of whole wheat flour (making bread), etc. etc. I LOVE grocery shopping in my favorite stores

  3. I'm going to look for some of the other forms of amla, because the powdered form that I got on Amazon is disgusting. Until then I have been taking one teaspoon of amla per day. I will report back the next time I go in to have my A1c tested which will probably be in March or April. My last A1c was 5.7

  4. Is safe in renal insufficiency

  5. If Amla is so popular in India, why is Diabetes so prevalent in India? Why is India considered the diabetes capital of the world? https://www.indiatimes.com/health/buzz/diabetes-prevalence-has-increased-64-over-a-quarter-of-a-century-in-india-and-costs-31-billion-354256.html (2018) and https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/health-news/India-is-the-diabetes-capital-of-the-world/articleshow/50753461.cms (2016). Sounds like the doc is a snake oil salesman on this one, which brings up the question, can other things he discusses by inaccurate too?

  6. $15/kg?! I've never seen it that low ever! Around here you can get about 100g for that kind of money..!

  7. I'll have to try it!

  8. Too bad it tastes like sheetrock dust, maybe worse.

  9. I’m fucking blown away… like… this is such a big effect….why isn’t every doctor recommending this ?!!

  10. Important : Amla is not a gooseberry !! Amla grows on a tree that belongs to the family Phyllanthaceae. Gooseberries grow on a bush of the Ribes family. Amla is called a gooseberry because it looks like one, but it is not. This said, gooseberries are probably also very healthy, but not like amla.

  11. Anyone know if the same goes for the normal "european" gooseberry ?

  12. will have to try this. I know bitter melon does simular things

  13. You move me to tears sometimes. So much good its overwhelming. Just thank you. THANK YOU!

  14. indian store hv Amla Juice not sure how gd it is live in Malaysia

  15. Can someone recommend a good brand and where to buy from?

  16. How do you take powdered amla?   Do you put it in water?  Spoon into mouth?  some other way?

  17. 3 bucks wtf????i envy u…doctor..

  18. Good information and job. Thanks and keep it up natural!

  19. I soak three tablespoon of amla powder at night in a jar of water, drink the water several times on the next day. It has helped tremendously with my sleep.
