    Hi everyone
    I am slowly trying to become become a vegan. I am convinced it is a much healthier way to eat. But even though I cook a very strict fat free vegan diet for my inlaws, I still fall off the wagon myself, but I keep trying.
    Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with amla? I have been incorporating it into my smoothies, but I wonder if there are other ways to get it in my diet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Well amla is also known as dried Indian gooseberries. I buy mine at my local Indian grocery store for about 1.99 for about a 1/2 pound. It is supposed to help fight cancer, diabetis etc.
    There are a number of amla research videos at this site, but here is one that I really think good. It talks about a recent study that shows how amla kills cancer cells, but leaves normal cells alone.

    I have not run into this yet. The cancer-fighting and other properties are still in early investigation stages, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_gooseberry

    There are some suggested culinary uses listed in the article and also the names this fruit goes by in other cultures - perhaps that might help you find some alternate uses.
