 Amala is Indian Gooseberry which is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. Amla has several health benefits like

  • Treats skin dieses like pimple, acne.
  • Prevents hair problems like hair fall and premature hair graying.

  • Increases Hemoglobin and strengthens teeth and nails.

I was having severe hair fall so I decided to buy Amla juice from a brand called Patanjali whose products are safe and natural. I am using this for about a month now daily. I take it in morning empty stomach and I can see its benefits. My hair fall problem is some what controlled now. Foe all other benefits I think I need to keep using it for more months. I an satisfied with the results and would recommend every one to take amla juice.

Will I repurchase and recommend:

Yes, it has so many benefits that can’t be explained in this post but I’ll sure post about the benefits of Amla Juice soon.

Update:-

It contains sodium benzoate as preservative but had no idea that it reacts with vitamin c to give benzene and can cause cancer. Thanks to a reader who told me about this. I have read some articles on it have given the link below please go through that.

It says that most of the beverages contains sodium benzoate as preservative an they have Vitamin c too but sodium benzoate percentage should be within the safety levels. However the percentage of sodium benzoate is not mentioned on the bottle which makes it shocking. Please go through the comments section and the links given to know more about this preservative and it’s ill effects.

  1. I have used amla juice from patanjali and also from other manufacturers (Apollo Pharma, Med plus and others) I find that except Med Plus the amla juice from all other sources is of dark brown color. I prepare the juice at home when the fruit is available in season and it remains white when stored in the refrigerator for over a month. May be the preservative sodium benzoate gives the dark color.

    • I have started using amla juice just a few months ago and Patanjali is the only brand I have used. Therefore I can’t comment on the color but before I used to eat amla or murabba to get the benefits (never extracted juice at home)but the amla juice is really handy and can be used everyday. I will try out other brands as well, thank you for the information.

    • Don’t drink this crap…i bought a 500ml bottle of Patanjali Amla Juice …..and there was more Sodium Benzoate than real juice in the bottle..you could actually smell it..its gonna do you more harm than good..SO DON’T GO FOR IT. Its POISON ..Benzoate + Vitamin C(ascorbic acid) = Benzene!..do the math.

    • Hi Naina,
      I have seen people who has used amla since their childhood in any form like juice, murabba etc prevents premature or even delays hair graying. But most of us don’t like eating amla because it tastes sour and bitter.

  2. I am using Amla Juice ( of Patanjali )since last two months almost.
    Usually I am taking 15 ml once in early morning with empty stomach.
    Please let me know how many months continuously I can use Amla Juice??

  3. I have a 3 .6 yr boy can u tell me how amla juice will help him in cough and cold and what quatity he should be given.

    • You can mix it with a little honey 3/4 tablespoon of amla juice and 1/4 of honey. The juice is sour so you can increase or decrease the juice and honey ration as per your liking and taste.

    • This one has preservatives to increase its shelf life. I think you should try fresh amla juice for applying on scalp.

  4. I just got a bottle of Amla juice from Patanjali, on looking at the contents realised that they use “sodium benzoate” (preservative). i did lookup for the info on this and was shocked to learn that vitamin C reacts with sodium benzoate to give benzene. i am really concerned about this and considering to dispose off the juice. also i find it very irresponsible on the part of Patanjalli to use a preservative which reacts with Vit C.

    regards

  5. Hi ..Thank u for the review on amla juice and also sharing about all those articles…I’m 25 and now i have started getting acne out of no where…after searching about the amla benefits on both hairs and skin..i’m thinking to try it..Did you see any difference in your skin? or seen someone who has used it and achieved clear skin?? pls help me out.
    Thanx

    • Hi Anushka, Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I haven’t seen any drastic change in texture of my hair or skin but drinking amla juice have reduced my hair fall problem. Taking amla juice daily have so many benefits if you can get fresh one go for that. Some days back Lohith had warned about the dangers of mixing Vitamin C and Sodium Benzoate. Which is a common preservative in juices and they both react with each other and gives out Benzene which is a cancer causing chemical. I researched and found out that it depends on the level of Sodium Benzonate in the juice. Patanjali people have not mentioned the percentage of the preservative used in the amla juice it so I would say try drinking fresh amla juice if available.

    • Patanjali people haven’t given any information on the pack about the quantity of sodium benzoate used. Please follow the links given by me previously to lohith to know about the dangers of sodium benzoate reacting with Vitamin C.

      • If you agree then why is it use in with Vitamin C ? Patanjali Can make pure Amla Juce. pls do not mix any Chemical in your products, we all of you beleave on you & using it.
        I also using Patanjali Amla Juce from Last 4 months…What is this..?

  8. Hi There, I have been drinking Patanjali Amla juice along with Aloevera juice for the past couple of months and I feel good (As far as skin, hair and immunity). Patanjali Ayruveda uses Sodium Benzoate as preservative, and I am a little worried about this preservative. I have read that most of the preservatives accelerates aging process. And thus Sodium Benzoate. Take a look at this link. http://foodbabe.com/2013/01/25/coca-colas-low-calorie-beverages-will-kill-you-before-they-solve-obesity/ . Mayo Clinic reports: The Mayo Clinic reported that this preservative may increase hyperactivity in children. Also, when sodium benzoate combines with ascorbic acid (vitamin C) benzene can form a carcinogen and kill DNA cells, and accelerate aging. Is this correct info…Please let us know..

    • This is definitely a correct info. I’m a biotechnology student. And works in food corporation. Patanjali products are jot safe to use.

  9. My father is 62 years n suffering from hypertension n cholesterol…. Can U tell me amla juice take helpful for my father

  10. I read from many site. amla juice contains sodium benzoate as preservative. sodium benzoate react with vitamin c to form benzene. Benzene is very harm full and cancer causing. so beware of it.

    Regards,
    Surjit

  11. You say that your hairfall issue was been solved after drinking amla juice. Please confirm whether you used Patanjali Amla juice or home made Amla juice.

  13. Hi,
    Can I use amla juice and alobvera juice in one time?
    Can I use amla juice with alobvera juice?
    If any side effect please tell me. .
    Thank you

    • Patanjali also sells amla juice with aloevera so I don’t think there will be any side effects. But the package juices contains certain chemicals to increase shelf life which might cause some side effects.

  14. Hi, Can anybody please confirm if Patanjali Amla Juice is harmful or not? I bought a bottle yesterday from Patanjali store. But, after reading the comments over here I am kind of doubtful now whether to consume it or not due to it’s preservative content.

    • I have been using this juice for 2 years I was also little confused whether to continue using it or not after one of my readr informd me about the preservative used and its side effects. I also did some little research on that topic and you will find that links in this section.

  15. This product contains Sodium Benzoite as a preservative and using such a compound with Vitamin C has more harmful effect. Request you to do a research before consuming it.

    • Amla juice or powder mixed with honey can reduce BP problem and also thyroid problem. I would recommend to use fresh amla juice for the cure as package amla juice contains preservatives.

  16. Recently I got this Amla juice and I used to mix with green juice( carrot, Spinach etc), it tasted very bad and, now I simply using this juice alone is it beneficial?. Question is should one use with other fruit juice or it is harmful?

    • You can mix it other fruit juices but patanjali or other packed juices have sodium benzoate as preservative which when mixed with vitamin c can cause cancer.

  17. hey VSS. u r doing great by solving doubts. i hv also an iissue regarding d juice. i hv eye number -0.5, can this juice be useful for removing eye number. how long shoud i take d juice?

  18. Hi! Actually, I am also suffering from hair loss, and so bought one bottle of Patanjali Amla juice but reading about the preservative scared me………..can I have an honest answer whether to use this product or not?

  19. Hey Vani,
    Thanks for an excellent review!
    May I ask whether you’re now continuing to use Patanjali Amla juice, after reading about Sodium Benzoate? Or have you shifted to some other brand?
    I’ve recently started using Patanjali Amla juice for hairfall problem, and was wondering if it would be okay to use over a long term.

  20. Hello
    Can i take aloe vera juice, amla juice and honey together? I very obese and want to reduce weight.also having problems of watt and pigmentation on face. Pls advice

  21. I bought this juice but I am not able to finish it in a month so I have put it in the fridge after being opened.

    Since the bottle says to consume it within a month; I am a little confused.

    If you are drinking 3-5 teaspoons each day, there is NO way to finish this in a month. I have the big bottle obviously.

    So, my Q is – is it OK to still consume it assuming it will still have its benefits?

    Thanks so much!!

  22. I want to loose weight can i consume it? Will it b helpful n aftr wat interval of tym i cn cnsume lemon water n green tea pls answer my query…

  23. Currently I am using amla juice 4 tsp , honey 2 tsp, Rock sugar 2 tsp and some powder my Ayurveda Dr is give me… I am using this since last 50 days and my long chronic constipation are disappeared. Also the digestion has improved… this is a great Amla juice… also try Patanjali Honey its effective…

  24. I started using patanjali amla juice since 15 days and am noticing change of colour . The manufacture date is 15.1.16 and expiry is 15.12.16. I doubt the crediblity of juice.should i discard the bottle.

  25. Frankly Patanjali amla juice was very good. But now with time and being more commercialized it is gradually becoming all chemical product. You can get the synthetic smell as you consume it .

  26. Hello,
    First time, I purchased Patanjali Amla Juice today. I am surprised that there is no composition details given. Sodium benzoate is used as preservatives. Amla is reach source of vitamin C.Really, I surprised to read these lines at 3rd point:

    “An unfortunate side effect is that when mixed with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) sodium benzoate transforms into benzene, a known carcinogen and DNA damager”.

    at this URL-http://blog.fooducate.com/2009/03/08/nine-facts-about-sodium-benzoate-a-preservative/

    I am very much worried, should I use it or not.

    Thanks,
    Samir

  27. Hi,

    I have been using Patanjali amla juice for the past one month and found it useful. However, I just came across this article and discovered that sodium benzoate and vitamin c causes cancer and i was hell scared. i looked up for it on the internet and found that only ascorbic acid on combination with sodium benzoate is carcinogenic. I also read a report stating that amla does not contain ascorbic acid. So i guess its safe to consume this product…thank goodness!!

  28. hiii,
    I use amla juice just now and i want know is it a best formula for my hair loss,
    and how useful it plz consider…how many days i can use it….

  29. Thanks for this posting. I am very impressed with it, sure this is one of the best articles.The article that is mentioned in the blog is good. we getting nice information through this blog. It’s very helpful

  30. it is safe to drink. you all people are scared of cancer, waise bhi sabhi ko marna hi hai ek din.
    i am drinking it from past 2 months. and i am healthy as horse.

  31. Hii after reading the comments below about benzene… I read a lot of articles and came to know that patanjali amla juice contains 0.20 w/v of sodium benzonate..I don’t know it is safe or not but definitely it’s a small quantity… So is it OK to consume for few months??
    Plz reply
    Thank you

    • Hi,
      I have myself consumed few bottles before a reader pointed out the ill effects of sodium benzoate. I stopped drinking that after some research on it and have come to the conclusion that it might not safe to drink. As I have already told I consumed a few bottles and I had no symptoms of any such complications or so related to this juice. I am a little scared and think the adverse effect might show up in the long run if I continue drinking this everyday. I love Patanjali products and would like to continue using them but not this one.

      • Hi, this is 1st time i m visiting your page. I really liked it. I have a query, from 3 years i m taking lemon+honey water and from 1 week i have started taking PATANJALI AMLA JUICE empty stomach and after 10min. I drink Honey+lemon drink.

        So, will there be any problem in future ? I m taking amla juice because of hair fall. And its off season so i cant find amla fruits in market.

  32. Thanks to your article. Disposing the bottle of Patanjali amla juice now because I don’t want any ill effects of sodium benzoate.

  33. Thanks for explaining abt amla juice benefits and sodium benzoate’s side effect.
    So may i know which company’s amla juice is good?

  34. Hi,

    I just started taking 30ml Amla juice from today, i feel pain in abdominal pain (stomach ache) and slight pain in my eye.

    is it normal and shall i continue or should i stop consuming the Amla juice?

    Thanks in advance for replies,
    Sid

      • what should be the safer level of preservative sodium benzoate that can be used in amla juice & do any other company other than patanjali have less amount of sodium benzoate used, which is in safer limit?

  35. I have been following the comments section and decided to clarify the same with PATANJALI and wrote a mail to them.

    Here is my mail
    ============
    Recently I have purchased Amla juice from patanjali stores and started using it.

    I came across an article stating like when sodium benzoate mixed with vitamin c, it turns to benzene which is a cancer carcinogenic agent.

    To my knowledge, the same is applicable for Patanjali Amla juice as well which is quite alarming.

    Please clarify so that the trust in your products may not be hampered.

    Here is their reply
