Emblic myrobalan (Amlaki)


Botanically it is known as Emblica officinalis. It contains vitamin C, amino acid, tannin, polyphenolic compounds, fixed oil, lipids and essential oils. It may be compared to 'Amrita' of heaven because of its magical healing powers. It is also known as 'Long-life Elixir'. It is a tonic, laxative, and rejuvenative and it increases longevity. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, has said, 'If one bites a piece of amlaki and swallows its juice everyday, he will remain free from all sorts of diseases and he will be ever young'. Emblic myrobalan cures many ailments like acidity, septic fever, biliary colic, vomiting, insomnia, defective vision etc.

The fruit is one of the richest sources of vitamin C; the fresh fruit is refrigerant, tonic, antiscorbutic, diuretic and laxative; it is used in fevers, hiccup, vomiting, indigestion, habitual constipation and other disorders of the digestive system. A decoction of the dried fruits is an efficacious douche in gonorrhoea; and an eye-wash in ophthalmia.

It is good liver tonic; raw fruits are cooling and mild laxatives. A fermented liquor made from the fruits is considered useful in indigestion anaemia, jaundice, certain heart complaints, cold in nose and for promoting urination. It is a very rich source of vitamin C. Certain experiments on patients of pulmonary tuberculosis showed that vitamin C of emblic fruits is more quickly assimilated in the human system than synthetic vitamin C; perhaps there certain unknown factors in the fruits responsible for this advantage. Dried fruits are useful in diarrhoea and dysentery.
