You can find this magical fruit in your local fruit or vegetable market. If you are planning on buying Amla make sure to buy fresh ones.

If you are too lazy to eat one Amla daily you can opt for Amla juice. Want to know how? This is post to find out.
What is Amla Juice and how to make it:
Amla is considered as power house of Vitamin C. It is not a fancy word, it involves grinding Amla fruits to extract the juice from it. You can either prepare fresh Amla juice or buy concentrated Amla juice available in your local pharmacy. Make the one you buy is pure and organic.
Fresh Amla Juice Preparation Method:
Ingredients: Fresh Amla fruits, Honey, cardamom (optional).
- Cut some Amla and take out the seed and rotten parts (these just go straight to your trash). Chop the Amla (about 1 cup) small enough for your blender.
- Toss the Amla in your blender and add some water (about ½ cup or less). Blend it really well.
- Pour the mixture in a strainer remove any lumps. This step is optional.
- Add some Honey (preferable for weight loss, make sure it is organic) or Sugar (go for brown organic sugar) to taste.
- You can also add some Cardamom for taste. Cardamom is a great anti-depressant.
- That’s it, you are done. You can just drink your Amla juice. If you feel like the Juice is sour or citrusy, you can add a pinch of salt and pepper according to your taste.
Amla Juice and Honey:
You can even add some honey and store it in the refrigerator you can store this mixture for about three to four days. Make sure your container is clean.
If you want to store this as a concentrate you can reduce the amount of water you add while grinding. Add honey to the mixture and refrigerate it in a glass container. Honey acts as a great preservative and you can store this mixture for a week. Every day morning pour some concentrate in cup and add some water (in the ratio of 1:1). Add some pepper and drink it up. Trust me! You will feel refreshing after this and you won’t stop drinking this juice.
Advice on ready made Amla Juices available in India:
If you are planning on buying the ready made juice concentrates available in the market, make sure it is pure. Check for the ingredients list, it should be only Amla and natural preservatives. If the bottle lacks the ingredients list, do not buy it, run away from there. If you get any allergic reactions stop drinking. It is always preferable to make your own Amla juice because you never know what those packaged juices contain. Baba ramdev has his patanjali amla juice available to buy online and in st ores.
