Ayurveda identifies a range of herbs and plants that can contribute to longer, healthier lives. Acara Bioherb followed these age-old practices when developing its beneficial new extract.
The Ayurvedic texts stress the importance of precaution and maintenance. Increased interest in these ancient principles and yoga has paved the way to better understanding of Indian herbs and their benefits. Ayurvedic practice evolved from the contemplative minds of ancient seers as a means of healing humanity and is more relevant now than ever. As a result, unique herbs, extracts and manufacturing techniques are coming together to create some of the best products in the world.
Nature has given mankind a tremendous array of medicinal plants to create disease-free, healthy lives. These include Phyllanthus emblica, which is commonly known as the Indian gooseberry, or amla. Described as the 'mother of all herbs' in Ayurveda, this has amazing health benefits.
It is full of antioxidants that are effective in regulating multiple health disorders by countering the effects of free radicals, and is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin C, flavonoids, polyphenolic compounds, alkaloids and tannins. Tannins, when combined with polyphenols, make the fruit a free radical scavenger.
Amla's potency as an antioxidant has been examined in a number of studies. Experiments conducted at the Niwa Institute of Immunology in Japan, for example, showed that amla preparations contained high levels of the free-radical scavenger, superoxide dimutase.
Extensive research by Acara Bioherb has led to AML 5 HS Amla, which is the result of the full-spectrum extraction processes in organic forms, using green chemistry. It is non- GMO-certified and solvent-free, provides optimal amounts of vitamin C and contains hydrolysable tannins and kaempferol, which is a natural flavonoid. After being evaluated for in-vitro total antioxidant capacity using the standard phosphomolybdenum method, AML 5 HS Amla found to have the higher antioxidant potential with total antioxidant capacity with 156.50 ± 0.003µg equivalent of ascorbic acid.
Amla is considered to be a safe herbal medicine with no adverse side effects. The Indian gooseberry's reputation for efficacy, combined with Acara's unique extraction process, which retains the maximum phyto constituents of the fruit, makes AML 5 HS Amla an immunity-boosting agent and antioxidant that is perfect for today's fast-paced world.
