Amla is known for its immunity-boosting properties. It is also believed that amla can prevent pancreatitis. The pancreas produces insulin which is crucial for fighting diabetes. However, amla also carries simple carbs that easily break down into sugars and are instantly absorbed in our bloodstream. Consuming too many amlas can cause hyperglycemia.

Simple tips to optimize blood sugar control with amla
• Soak fenugreek seeds in water overnight and mix them with Amla in the morning for an effective natural remedy to manage blood sugar levels.
• You may combine Amla with Apple Cider Vinegar to reduce the glycemic index of meals.
• Practice portion control by limiting Amla intake to one fruit per serving or 0.5 if paired with other glucose-regulating foods.
• Consider pairing Amla with a protein-rich breakfast like eggs, tofu, or paneer bhurji to help regulate glucose metabolism throughout the day.

Amla has been found to contain polyphenols that can help regulate glucose metabolism by inhibiting enzymes involved in carbohydrate digestion and absorption. Additionally, its controlled intake has been shown to increase insulin sensitivity and enhance glucose uptake leading to better glucose control.
