Indian Gooseberry has many therapeutic properties and these have been postulated in classical texts over centuries. The main property is its revitalizing action and tissue building capacity, which is a unique property that does not come across anywhere in the globe. It covers many therapeutic areas in human body, including constipation.

Indian Gooseberry is known to help eye disorders, skin disorders, urine disorders etc.; in addition, it possesses intellectual enhancing properties and preventing vision loss, a natural laxative to relieve constipation. Modern research showed that it has rich quantities of vitamin C, trace elements and minerals.
In my observation, eating one Indian gooseberry or Amla fruit a day gives innumerable health benefits. Another good quality of Amla is that it acts as catalyst by controlling and preventing urinary diseases, stomach ailments, IBS and more. When Indian Gooseberry is combined with Turmeric, it might help vision improving and could possibly prevent Cataract.

Ancient eminent physician Charaka mentioned Amla as the best revitalizing herb and it is used for constipation relief, as it acts as a laxative, and for Diarrhea, Hemorrhoidal issues, and finally for IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. Susrutha an eminent ancient Surgeon used Indian Gooseberry for Anemia.
