Basically, amla powder is one of the highest natural sources of Vitamin C, and it has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to treat the hair and the scalp. It is said to penetrate the scalp and strengthen hair at its root, stop and reverse abnormal hair loss and to in general promote stronger, healthier new growth.
Amla powder contains vitamin C that acts as an antioxidant which helps to destroy free radicals responsible for cell damage as well as diseases. Studies further show that amla powder is beneficial in treating skin disease.
