Amla /Gooseberries / Avalo  are so high is Vitamin C and it's got so many health benefits such as it is good Immune booster, very good for reducing blood sugar levels, it is also said that it is a body coolant and helps to flush out toxins ...it's benefits are endless and I always make sure I buy them whenever I manage to find them in my local Indian grocery shop . I still remember my college days when I used to buy gooseberry and pineapple mixed with a very spicy paste from a local shop and I used to absolutely relish every bite of it .
