Clinical Studies:

Emblica officinalis was tested on diabetes induced Wistar-NIN rats by STZ. The results provided an evidence that Emblica and an enriched fraction of Emblica tannoids are very beneficial in delaying development of diabetic cataract in rats (Emblica officinalis and its enriched tannoids delay streptozotocin-induced diabetic cataract in rats by Suryanarayana P, Saraswat M, Petrash JM, Reddy GB at Biochemistry Division, National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad, India for Mol. Vis. 2007 Jul 24;13:1291-7).
Amalaki is widely used in Indian medicine as a remedy for many diseases. It was investigated that effects of amalaki on lipid metabolism and protein expression involved in oxidative stress during the ageing process and the results were favorable. It can be therefore said that the amalaki can prevent age-related hyperlipidemia through attenuating oxidative stress in the ageing process. (Amla (Emblica officinalis) prevents dyslipidaemia and oxidative stress in the ageing process by Yokozawa T, Kim HY, Kim HJ, Okubo T, Chu DC, Juneja L.R. at Institute of Natural Medicine, University of Toyama, 2630 Sugitani, Toyama 930-0194, Japan – Br. J. Nutr. 2007 Jun; 97 (6): 1187-95)
Emblica officinalis is one of the most important herbs of Ayurved, the traditional Indian Medicinal system. In this ancient science, the fruit of Emblica officinalis was processed according to a method called swaras bhavana whereby the therapeutic potential of the fruit used to be enhanced by treating the main herb with its own juice. Amla is a prime source of Vitamin C i.e. Ascorbic acid and it carried great values as antioxidant agent. (Vitamin C content and antioxidant Activity of the fruit and of the Ayurvedic preparation of Emblica officinalis by Scartezzini P, Antognoni F, Raggi MA, Polo F, Sabbioni C.J. at Faculty of Pharmacy, Department of Biology, University of Bologna, Via Irnerio 42, 40126 Bologna, Italy for Ethnopharmacol. 2006 Mar 8;104 (1-2) : 113-8. Epub 2005 Oct 13).
Not surprisingly, Amalaki’s reputation is supported by scientific studies confirming its immunity boosting properties. Clinical studies were conducted to investigate the effect of amalaki in amlapitta (Gastritis syndrome). Amalaki churna was given in 20 cases in a dose of 3 g, thrice a day for seven days. The drug was found effective in 85% of cases. Cases of hyperchlorhydria with burning sensation in abdominal and cardiac regions and epigastric pain were benefited.
