Amla water for winter: - Eating 1 fermented amla daily in winter will make you look healthy and beautiful
Due to the weakness of the immune system during winter, some diseases surround us easily. That's why I eat 1 amla daily these days. It contains eight times more vitamin C than orange and about 17 times more antioxidants than pomegranate. That's why it is called a superfood.
Amla boosts immunity, helps in reducing weight and is very good for hair and skin. It is said that if this fruit is eaten continuously in winter, then health remains healthy throughout the year. But many people do not like the taste of amla and completely ignore this seasonal gift of nature.
For such people, today we have come up with a way to eat Amla in a new way. Ayurvedic expert Dr. DeekshaBhavsar has shared this information with fans through Instagram. She wrote in the caption, 'Amla is the secret of winter health. Want to know why I use it every day in winter? So let me inform you about its benefits.

So yes, Amla covers everything for me.
