skin problems……smoothie with amalaki/amla berry

Still reading to many books about food, what can make you confused but also very clear in things and facts about food.
Now I am really seeing the need of vitamin C intake! it is good for a lot of things, first the making of collagen, repairing the wounds you have. Reducing the chance of some cancers, it’s an antioxidant.
I read also many times about the amla berry or amalaki, of course I heared it first at my school, but I forgot it. here are some nice reasons to take amla berry.
Ok… why I want to use it, because my skin has troubles, I have a lot of red spots, I think my pitta has some problems. I am stressed and loose probably a lot of vitamin c.Wake up in the night at vata/pitta time. It looks like my hair is beginning to get thinner and very dry.I have a dry skin and for some days a dry mouth! (and so on) So I read that amalaki is reducing Pitta and vata. So I wanted to try and experiment by myself.  I bought some amalaki powder, the taste is terrible mixed with only water, so I made today a smoothie with it, of course you can change some ingredients to make another smoothie with this super berry. I keep you up to date if it is helping me…
