I purchased some and have been taking it almost every day since. I noticed that it increases the digestion enzymes, makes the hair thicker, clears up shingles, fights colds and viruses, increased energy and stamina, loaded with Vitamin C to boosts the immune system. It is a "Superfood" as far as I am concerned.

I love Amalaki powder. It adds a nice tang to my fruit smoothies. It keeps me and the family from getting sick.
Some of my kids have dry curly-coily hair that can be hard to comb. I mixed some Amalaki Powder with coconut oil and cooked it a bit in a pot, then blended it with Olive oil, added it to a glass bottle and it made a wonderfully strange detangling hair oil. Strange because I cannot figure out why it works, but wonderful because it helps us to comb through the tangles with much greater ease.
I love Amalaki and get antsy whenever we run out of it.

Vitamin C and such
by Anonymous on Feb 17, 2014

The vitamin C in this powder is amazing! Everyone around me is getting sick and I'm somehow immune (knock on wood). I've heard that ingesting this for skin and hair should be done on an empty stomach. Is this true? I've just been adding it to my morning shake.

    Hello, thank you for the review! From the small amount of research that we have done, it doesn't seem necessary to take it on an empty stomach! Thanks!

I know you recommend this, as an ingredient, in the Berry Herbal Brew as a remedy for fertility in your, "Making Babies", but once conception takes place is it safe taken while pregnant and later nursing? Thank you!

    From the research I have done it seems like you can take the powder while pregnant but to use caution as it can absorb iron. So if you have low iron or find that you are having trouble keeping it up you should probably stop. If you have any concerns consult your midwife or doctor. Thanks!

Is this considered safe for children to take as an immune boost since it is high in Vitamin C?

    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 12, 2013

    Yes, Almalaki Powder would be a great thing to use as an immune booster for children! We are not medical professionals, therefore you will need to do your own research on this! Thanks!

Amalaki powder.
by Michelle on Dec 17, 2012

Hi, could you tell me how I would consume this Amalaki powder or fresh fruit? Thanks!

    Re: Amalaki powder.
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 22, 2013

    Hi! Our favorite ways to use berry powders like this, is to add them to a delicious smoothie! Also, some other options are to encapsulate the powder, or just mix in juice or water! We do not have personal experience with the fresh fruit, therefore you will have to do your own research on this! Hope this was helpful! Thanks!

My husband and I have been taking the gooseberry in our cereal everyday since last December. We have not had a cold or flu all year. Plan on buying more great product.

Just wanted to tell you that I add hibiscus flowers to almost every tea that I make. I LOVE the taste and the additional zing it gives to all my teas. I also really appreciate the quick response on that last order. I truly appreciate all of you. The products are fantastic and am seeing results with herbal usage. I have auto-immune problems and it is a long haul with illnesses.

Thanks again.
