Ayurvedic beliefs date back thousands of years. This ancient practice centres around achieving health and wellbeing through balancing mind, body and spirit. By achieving the correct balance, say Ayurvedic practitioners, we can achieve optimum health and fight off diseases naturally. At Imagine if Distribution, our Amla Herbal Dietary Supplement contains amla, a premature grey hair treatment that is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine. It can help you stay healthy and, when used in conjunction with amla oil for white hair, it can also help to prevent and reduce premature grey hair.

Why Does Hair Turn Grey Prematurely?

The colour of your hair depends on the distribution, type and amount of a pigment called melanin in the middle layer of the hair shaft. As we get older, we produce less melanin and our hair grows as grey or white. The reason for premature greying is often genetic, but there can be other causes. Premature greying can be the result of improper nourishment, stress, smoking, or an ailment.

Ayurvedic practitioners say the key to stopping premature greying is to find out if there is an underlying issue and then taking the appropriate measures to address it. Amla Herbal Dietary Supplement is an Ayurvedic herbal treatment which contains amla powder for premature grey hair.

What Ayurvedic Medicine Says About Premature Grey Hair

Ayurveda quite literally translates to the ‘science of life’. Originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda believes that every person is born with their own unique pattern of energies, or doshas, and these energies stay with us throughout our lives. We need a healthy balance of all three doshas for good health and wellbeing. 

If something causes an excess or deficiency of one of these doshas, we experience an imbalance and a change in our constitution. We are then not as healthy as we could be, we can become ill, or we can suffer from adverse symptoms. To become well again, we need to redress the imbalance.

The three doshas are called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, and each one performs important functions in the body. An imbalance in Pitta dosha can lead to premature greying. It can also cause skin problems, diarrhoea, and other symptoms such as irritability and anger. Therefore, rebalancing Pitta dosha can help with premature greying.

Amla Powder for White Hair

Amla, also known as Indian gooseberry, is a tree that produces edible green berries. All parts of the amla plant are used in Ayurvedic medicine herbal preparations since amla is extremely high in antioxidants and natural Vitamin C. Amla powder for hair helps curb greying by preserving melanin in the hair follicle. It also helps boost hair growth and keeps the scalp healthy with its strong antimicrobial properties. A 60 g tub of Amla Herbal Dietary Supplement holds 120 capsules, which contain an impressive 1500 mg of organic amla fruit powder.

How to Restore Balance, Health and Wellness

If you are experiencing premature greying, avoid Pitta aggravating foods, overexposure to the sun, and stress.

Foods to avoid: Stay away from sour, salty and pungent foods such as chillies, garlic and raw onions.

Foods to eat: Eat more black lentils, chickpeas, mung beans, vegetables and cooling, non-spicy foods.

Take a herbal supplement: Take one capsule a day of Amla Herbal Dietary Supplement to boost immunity, improve sleep, and help remove toxins from the body. With proven benefits for improving metabolism and aiding in the absorption of food, amla can even help rejuvenate bodily organs and functions and reduce oxidative stress on the liver.

Use organic amla oil for white hair: Ayurveda advises oiling your scalp and hair to dissipate heat from the head, soothe the nerves in the brain and nourish the scalp.

Practice meditation: Ayurvedic practitioners prescribe meditation for balancing mind and body and it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.

When the doshas and the flow of energy are balanced, the body’s natural defence systems will be strong and more able to defend against disease. Click here to find out more about our Amla Herbal Dietary Supplement
