All citrus fruits like orange, Amla, and lemon have vitamin C and boost immunity to prevent Covid-19. Let's explore why we need to include Amla in our diet.

Boosts Your Immunity: A strong immune system should always be a priority, and now with the pandemic spreading at high speed across the globe, it becomes more important. A strong immune system is the first to protect against the virus, which can cause life-risk complications. The easiest way to do so is by eating a healthy diet. A healthy and balanced diet full of nutrients is our best way to gear up our immunity.


Rich in Antioxidants: Amla has many antioxidants that can help neutralize the free radicals and save you from many diseases. Amla also has anti-bacterial properties that can help detoxify your system and even reduce acne and dandruff.

Helps in cold and cough: We all are aware that COVID 19 affects respiration, and thus, it's important to nourish the respiratory system. Amla can assist you with that. Amla is being used for a long time to relieve cough and cold symptoms, which often leads to chest congestion.

Rich in Chromium: Amla has chromium that might help reduce bad cholesterol in the body. The heart and lungs are other vital organs that can get affected by the COVID 19 virus. Thus, it's best to have a heart-healthy diet. 


How to Consume Amla in your regular diet

Amla candy

Nowadays, Amla candy is very popular and easily available in the market. These are sweet and tangy candies. The sweetness comes from either sugar or jaggery. Jaggery one is healthier. To give this candy more taste, people put Indian spices over it like salt, red chili powder.

Amla chutney

Amla chutney is also a great way to make sure that you have your daily dose of Amla. The chutney can be made in bulk and kept in the fridge for quite a good duration to relish with your meals.

Amla pickle

We know that eating too much pickle is not good for health due to large amounts of salt and oil. Nevertheless, you can safely eat one to two spoonsful of amla pickle every day. Amla pickles are primarily water-based and do not contain much salt. They have a short life but are great for adding nutrition to your diet.

Amla with salt

One of the simplest ways to eat Amla is to cut the Amla into two and eat it raw. To balance the bitter taste, sprinkle salt on it. You can also add a pinch of chaat masala. It will enhance the flavor, and you can consume the fruit without hassle.

We hope that you will start adding amla to your diet regularly as it has several superpowers that prevent covid-19. For diabetic people, it's good to have raw Amla or Amla juice only as other options like candy and chutney can increase the sugar level. Apart from Covid, Amla is great for hair, skin, and weight loss.
