Functional ingredients maker Taiyo says scientific research is backing the ayurvedic medicinal heritage of its functional ingredient: SunAmla.

SunAmla is a water soluble powder approved for use in dietary supplements in Europe. It combines vitamin C, polyphenols gallic acid and ellagic acid, minerals, fibres, proteins and amino acids, and complex structured tannins.

Ayurvedic medicine uses the amla fruit to treat and prevent inflammatory disease.

Clinical research published in the British Journal of Nutrition​ found that SunAmla amla fruit extract’s anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant properties may help prevent and treat vascular disorders, including thrombosis and poor blood pressure.

Taiyo’s md, Josef Skrna, says: “SunAmla is supplied in a highly bioavailable form to facilitate the delivery of vital components. This natural amla fruit extract is ideal for manufacturers looking to develop products to support cardiovascular health, as well as digestive and immune health.”
