Reply Rosie Jase says: October 27, 2017 at 5:04 pm After learning about the benefits of Amla from you, Dr. Greger, I've recently been stirring a half teaspoon of the powder into my tea every morning. I've also been applying Amla oil to my eyebrows and hairline for regrowth hopes! I prefer to use it to Minoxidil. Anyway, THANKS tons for the education! Reply Swankster says: October 27, 2017 at 5:14 pm In my previous life when I was an Indian living in Jharsuguda, India, I had access to fresh amla fruit and ate in frequently. I lived to 105! Reply falconbrother says: October 27, 2017 at 5:17 pm Eager to hear the next video on Simvastatin/Zokor vs. Amla. Reply Joseph1NJ says: October 27, 2017 at 5:26 pm OK, it may have some positive health benefits, but just because its "natural" does not mean its without risks or side effects. I recall a while back everyone was excited about red rice yeast for cholesterol, until they found out it while yes, it did reduce cholesterol, it damages the liver just as badly as statins. And because its unregulated, it is far more dangerous than statins. So yes, its certainly worth further study. I'd take a page from the good doc's elderberry experiment, that is, don't dive in until you know exactly what you're doing, and speak to a medical professional. Reply colonyofcells iamamachine2 says: October 27, 2017 at 5:33 pm Frozen amla is sold in India stores. Can also buy organic amla powder or organic triphala powder in bulk from the internet. The main problem with india food and china food is both countries have lots of pollution in their soil so probably safer to get your unrefined foods from the local farmers markets.

Reply Bhuvan Kalra says: October 27, 2017 at 5:38 pm My grandma has been feeding us with whole amla in fruit juice since I was a kid. Perks of being born in India.

Reply Rozamunduszek says: October 28, 2017 at 3:16 pm If the optimal level of LDL is under 70 and total cholesterol under 150, why do most guidelines and most doctors say it's under 100 for LDL and under 200 for total cholesterol? My most recent total cholesterol was 164 and LDL was 103 and so I thought my total was great and my LDL was aaaaalmost good and now you're telling me both of those are crap?! Whaaa?

I quit using the e cig and my lungs do feel better but I am unsure of the effects. I mean sure there is alot of propaganda and I am getting mixed reviews. I just want honest studies and research and this is the best place for it:) Reply TT says: October 28, 2017 at 3:54 pm Doc…in India we don't say "emla" but "Aamla" where there is AA sound instead of AE sound. Sounds funny when people say "emla" Similarly turmeric is not "Tumor-ic" instead it is pronounced as term… "Terme-ric" Reply TT says: October 28, 2017 at 3:58 pm In India amla is eaten in multiple ways. It can be eaten as fresh fruit but it is EXTREMELY sour. So the various methods are to make it into a sweet drink/smoothie with lots of sugar, pickle with lots of sugar. The best I suppose would be dried/powdered formats which is what ayurveda uses. It is wonderful as after meal mouth cleanser too…makes mouth sweet after eating such sour powder Reply Clara Clarkus says: October 28, 2017 at 4:21 pm Could the cholesterol lowering effects of AMLA actually be detrimental to those with normal lipid levels? Cholesterol can be forced too low, correct? Reply Rachael Scherer says: October 28, 2017 at 4:51 pm How else can we incorporate it in our diet besides hiding in a smoothie?

I see all of them described as "Indian gooseberry". Also, where do you get it for $.05 per teaspoon? IT is fairly expensive, and not that easy to find except online. Reply greenday1347 says: October 29, 2017 at 9:27 am How do we consume Amla (powder)? Reply Plant Maven says: October 29, 2017 at 12:12 pm Because of this fine doctor, I now get a tablespoon every morning in a smoothie. My arthritic dog also gets a sprinkle on her dog food – she actually licks the bowl too. She has gained better mobility. Reply Red Pill Vegan says: October 29, 2017 at 3:28 pm Hard to find fresh amla. You can find Frozen sliced amla at Indian grocery store. Deep brand and others, get sliced, no seeds/pit like whole amla. Very tart. Can go in smoothie but doesn't work with all flavors.

Reply cbrcoder says: October 30, 2017 at 6:30 am Just for information : Amla is described as "Dhatri Phal" in our ayurvedic texts. Literally means "Mother". Reply patty 8873 says: October 30, 2017 at 12:19 pm I have a jar of amla powder that I forgot about. I just checked and the expiration date was last May. I wonder if I should just use if up anyway.

Is there any study about this paradox and what causes such high incidence of such killer diseases? Reply Sin Win says: November 1, 2017 at 2:44 pm Triphala is said to be better than Amla alone as per Ayurveda to balance your constitution (doshas, imbalance of which according to your personal ratios, causes diseases).REPLY Reply StarFlower99654 says: November 3, 2017 at 12:03 am I wish the studies would have compared gooseberries with Alaskan wild blueberries and black currants. I take both of the latter added to my morning oatmeal. I know for a fact eating the blueberries lent to my vision improving by 2 diopters in each eye after the first year of living in Alaska and harvesting the wild blueberries, using them throughout the year in many things.

Reply Virginia Fitzpatrick says: November 5, 2017 at 1:04 am Your conception of LDL cholesterol is out of date. I took Niacin. It lowered by cholesterol and raised my blood sugar. Both LDL and HDL cholesterol is dangerous when it is oxidized which is more likely to happen if you have high blood sugar. Statins and Diet will have the same effect on cholesterol and blood sugar as niacin. I have read this in many sources. I fear that AMLA will do the same thing. Actually I am more interested in what causes high cholesterol. Fortunately some of the causes for oxidized cholesterol are known and can be prevented. This seem to be common knowledge among researchers but not among doctors yet. That will probably take another decade or maybe never if they get all their medical info from the drug companies. BTW people with normal levels of cholesterol get heart disease because their "normal" cholesterol is oxidized. Reply Jo Bellens says: November 5, 2017 at 10:48 am Important : Amla is not a gooseberry !! Amla grows on a tree that belongs to the family Phyllanthaceae. Gooseberries grow on a bush of the Ribes family. Amla is called a gooseberry because it looks like one, but it is not. This said, gooseberries are probably also very healthy, but not like amla.

I've been in the health and fitness business for nearly 30 years and never knew the powers of Amla until I watched this video a few nights ago. Well, God works in mysterious ways because my sister-in-law came over today and was telling me how doctors put her on a statin to lower her off the charts cholesterol – as they put it. How off the charts was it? 219! Yes, 219! Not that off the charts to me, but oh well. Anyways, she was complaining of muscle pain and weakness along with having spasms and even though she is a diabetic she said her sugars have been very high since starting the statin so she went back to the doctor and they increased her metformin from 1000mg per day to 2000mg per day. I about flipped when she was telling me the story. In any case I knew right away that the statins was causing her blood sugars to go up as well as all the muscle symptoms she was having and I asked her if she was taking CoQ10 with the statin and she had no clue what that was. So, I showed her this video and gave her some of my Amla to see if we can't kill two birds with one stone. Lower her cholesterol and her blood sugars. She had only been taking the statin for two weeks and I told her to stop taking it along with monitoring her blood sugars a few times per day as I suspect that her sugars will drop like a rock just by stopping the statin. I will update this comment in 3 weeks with the results of our own experiment. 8-18-2018Total Cholesterol: 219HDL: 29Triglycerides: 280 (very high) Fasting Blood Sugars: 325 (very high) Reply Martin Harlov says: August 20, 2018 at 11:19 pm Dear Dr. Greger, what do we do About this: http://perfecthealthdiet.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/O-Primitivo-Cholesterol.jpgIt says a rather higher Cholesterol Level, about 200, is to aim for.
