My journey taking whole “super” foods began as we started the Hulda Clark cleansing and detox program. Dr. Clark recommended taking natural rosehip powder for the best form of absorbable Vitamin C. After using rosehip powder for many years, I branched into other natural Vitamin C alternatives such as Camu Camu powder and Amla (Amalaki – Indian Gooseberry) powder.
The Amla I use is available in powdered form and all I do is mix it into a smoothie or green drink each morning. Amla berries contains 20 times as much Vitamin C as oranges in a convenient and bioavailable format.
This is different from vitamin pills and capsules, which require your body to break it down and try to absorb it. Pills generally do not contain all the supporting nutrients the Amla powder contains, and it comes at a ‘cost’ to your body to try and absorb what it needs and in turn, discard the excess. Nothing goes to waste when you take a whole food.
High Vitamin C foods such as Amla berry are safe, well absorbed, and your body gets the balanced range of nutrients it needs from the pure whole food in the Amla berry. Apart from the high Vitamin C content of Amla berry powder, you get a range of B vitamins, Vitamin A, plus minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and zinc.
Best Zapper recommends the whole food approach to boosting your health. One teaspoon of Amla powder or more in a smoothie is a great nutritional boost and will ensure you have your antioxidant dose for the day.
