This range of tastes make it beneficial for all Doshas, which means – everyone can benefit from Amalaki, regardless of individual mind-body constitution. Alma is known as the ultimate healer due to its immune restorative properties and is considered the ultimate mind and body rasayana. Charaka states, “Of all the rasayanas, Amalaki is revered as one of the most potent and nourishing; Amalaki is the best among rejuvenative herbs.” Rasayanas are rejuvenating therapies or herbs which promote antiaging and longevity.
