There are several important fruits used in the traditional healing systems of South and Southeast Asia, including amla (derived from Phyllanthus emblica L. or Emblica officinalis Gaertn. ).


In both Hinduism and Buddhism this fruit was revered as the "fruit of heaven," hence the name Amla. The Ayurveda herb Amla is classified as a rasayana, or rejuvenator (which encourages a healthy aging process) and is a tonic for eye and mental health, contributing to our ability to see, perceive, and analyze what we see.


There are a number of poly-ingredient herbal combinations that include amla as one of its essential ingredients, such as Triphala ("three fruits"), which also includes two other types of myrobalan fruits.


Due to its antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties, the fruit of the plant is the most widely consumed part.


The fruit contains tannins, alkaloids, polyphenols, minerals, and vitamins, including high levels of vitamin C. The high tannin content makes the fruit sour and astringent. In Ayurveda, amla is the primary eye tonic. As a traditional remedy, it was believed to preserve eye sight and relieve complaints related to eye strain and fatigue [1–3].
