What does a 500mg tablet of alma cost and exactly how much vitamin c does it provide?
Can it compare to a standard bottle of ascorbic acid.
You would need to take much less amla than vitamin C.
Amla contains approx. 20 times more Vitamin C than oranges, is 10-20 times better assimilated than USP Vit. C and has a unique antioxidant profile including healthy tannins which work synergistically with its Vitamin C content for stability.
I like this brand the best
Amla Berry, the Indian gooseberry, provides the highest concentration of vitamin C of any natural source. This whole food vitamin C with naturally occurring bioflavonoids is 12 times more assimilable than synthetic vitamin C.
Amla, revered for over 5,000 years in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-aging and immune enhancing properties, contains a superior source of vitamin C as well as high levels of the antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and tannins which inhibit the degradation of vitamin C and act as cellular protective agents against oxidative stress. Research shows that Amla increases protein synthesis.
