Amla (Indian Gooseberry) During Pregnancy
Pregnancy is a stage where women can't afford to eat anything and everything because the foods that women eat during pregnancy can affect the health of the baby as well.
During pregnancy, all of us wish what we taste, smell, touch, see or hear should aid in developing a healthy baby with a sound mind. Ayurveda enhances this thought and advocates for following an Ayurvedic lifestyle if practiced during pregnancy will definitely benefit both mother and child.
According to Ayurveda , amla or the Indian gooseberry, has an inevitable role throughout the pregnancy period of a woman. Its benefits are also passed down to us from our older generations. It is the main ingredient of many of the Ayurvedic medicines like chyavanaprash, arishta, choornas, etc. Although not much appealing in its flavor, we all would have tasted this “wonder fruit” because it is very commonly available in India.
