The most important benefits of Karela are:

Research has shown Karela to contain three types of compounds that give it this amazing ability. These are Charantin, Polypeptide P and alkaloids.

Karela has also been reported to increase the number of beta cells (cells that secrete insulin) in the pancreas, thereby improving your body's capability to produce insulin.

A study in the International Journal of Vitamin and Nutrition showed that Karela protects against liver disorders by boosting anti-oxidant activity of liver enzymes. It also improves bladder function.

3. Helps to Lose Weight -  Karela helps to speed up metabolism. A study also showed that it helps to dislocate human fat cells and also prevents growth of new fat cells.

4. Healthy Skin - Along with its blood purification properties, Karela also has powerful anti-oxidants along with Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Karela has long been known as an excellent remedy for all kinds of skin conditions and helps to keep skin clear and healthy.

5. Highly nutritious - Karela is chock full of vitamins and mineral and is regularly consumed in many communities for its benefits.

Why Amalaki is considered to be gold in Ayurveda

Amalaki - Ayurvedic Gold

It is believed that what gold is to minerals, Amalaki is to herbs.

The most widely used herb in Ayurveda, Amalaki is known to have multiple benefits.

The most important benefits of Amalaki are:

1. Slows Ageing - In Ayurveda, Amalaki's primary benefit is called  Vayastapana, which literally means “stopping the ageing”. In Charak Samhita (an ancient and one of the most important Ayurvedic science texts) it is stated “Of all the rasayanas, Amalaki is revered as one of the most potent and nourishing; Amalaki is the best among rejuvenative herbs.

Modern science first discovered Amalaki's anti-oxidant properties in 1936. It is these powerful anti-oxidant properties that give Amalaki its anti-ageing benefits. 

As a result Amalaki shows anti-ageing benefits not only when consumed internally but also when applied topically to hair and skin. It is very well-known as a herb that prevents premature graying and falling of hair.

2. Digestive Aid - Amalaki is considered excellent for digestion. Dried amla fruit is commonly consumed in India after meals to aid in digestion. It provides quick relief from bloating, gas, indigestion and nausea.

Taken on a regular basis, Amalaki keeps the digestive tract healthy. It detoxifies the digestive system.
and helps to absorb nutrients. Amalaki is one part of the famous blend Triphala that is excellent for the digestive tract and digestive issues like IBD and Colitis.

3. Builds Immunity -  According to Ayurveda, Vata Dosha is predominant during fall and early winter.  Vata Dosha is characterized by cold, dry, rough, light, qualities. Aggravation of these qualities lead to lower immunity and resilience.

Amalaki with its anti-oxidant properties and high Vitamin C content supports the lungs and respiratory system and helps build immunity.

Amalaki is also a very important herb for brain health, skin health, eyes and the reproductive system.

The Urinary tract and kidneys are vital in flushing toxins from the body. The kidneys produce urine by removing various components like salt, toxins, urea, water and toxin substances.

Urinary tract infections and kidney problems can cause severe pain, burning during urination, inflammation, high blood pressure and build-up of toxins.

It is therefore very important to maintain the healthy functioning of the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra.

Cystone is a formulation of several herbs that help to support the kidneys and urinary tract. Some of these herbs are Stone Flower (Didymocarpus pedicellata), Saxifraga ligulata, Indian Madder (Rubia cordifolia), Umbrella's Edge (Cyperus scariosus), Prickly-Chaff Flower (Achyranthes aspera), Sedge (Onosma bracteatum) and Purple Fleabane (Vernonia cinerea)
