Amla Capsules as alternative to Baidyanath Rakt Shodhak Bati.


@acnemantra  Hii AM! I am soo happy!

U must have read what i said about AMLA and AMLA CAPSULES here – .

I have been taking these Amla Capsules since last 1 week and I must tell you that i am seeing SUCH EXTRAORDINARY BENEFITS which i never saw in the last 7-8 years!!!!!!!!!!!!


I mean, I started taking Amla Capsules (They have amla powder only in them, thus very safe) twice a day .(One capsule contains 500 mg of Amla Powder. Thus, i took 1 gram amla powder daily when it is considered safe to take from 2-3 gram amla powder in a day. Thus, taking 2 CAPSULES a day was VERY VERY SAFE).

And in this one week, i have not get A SINGLE PIMPLE ON MY FACE!! My oil is UNDER VERY MUCH CONTROL. My extremely oily skin now doesn’t look EXTREMELY OILY anymore!! 🙂 🙂 YEAH!! Nor does it make my skin look very dry (which is caused by Baidyanath Rakt Shodhak Bati). And the most wonderful thing is – MY PIGMENTS ARE ACTUALLY FADING! yes! I noticed slight but VISIBLE change in reduction of pigments!

The best thing about Amla as i have already told here is that IT IS MADE FOR ANY KIND OF BODY, its universal in nature, it balances all doshas. So, it can be used for any kind of body- Vata/Kapha or Pitta. And it is beneficial for ALL KIND OF SKIN- Oily or dry or combo!

Well, everyone of us already know the importance of Amla or you may personally search also or can read my comments here . 

In fact, not only for skin related problems but also for DETOXIFICATION OF BODY, as a MILD LAXATIVE, for repiratory problems, for Sperm count and menstrual problems including hair fall and ACNE because of hormonal changes, for kidney related problems and rejuvenation of body- AMLA is just wonderful.

And amla capsules are VERY SAFE intake beacause they are convenient to carry and have and are HIGHLY EFFECTIVE and are Very Economical.

UNLIKE BAIYANATH RAKT SHODHAK, they don’t cause ANY DRYNESS in the body and are SAFE for all body types.

ALSO, they are VERY SAFE FOR LONG TERM – Infact, it is recommended to have daily amla intake in everyone’s diet regularly whether u have acne or not.


I am using ORGANIC INDIA AMLA CAPSULES (Rs. 150 for 60 Capsules) since one week. During this time, i just did NOT use any product except HIMALAYA NEEM FACE WASH which i used to wash my face and SEBAMED FOAM FACE WASH sometimes for exfoliation at night! 


And i must say that since the capsules contain proper amount of amla powder therefore you hardly need to worry about wrong amount of intake of the powder. Also, the capsules are very safe for long run. In fact, it IS advisable for have Amla for a long run.


You could find lots of brands in the market (Himalaya Herbals sells Amla Capsules too) but a reputable and trustworthy brand is ORGANIC INDIA AMLA CAPSULES (It is easily available online).


Make sure that you don’t use COMEDOGENIC products ever (especially while using Amla), otherwise, yo will say that it is causing acne! NO! Lol! Amla is considered mother in ayurveda which can never harm its children. Also, since capsules don’t contain anything else but amla powder, they are really very effective in skin care and acne reduction.

Thats why i have stopped being here active in this site too much! Because now i have got my sure-shot remedy for forever!

@acnemantra, some days more and i am sending you my SUCCESS STORY. Include ORGANIC INDIA AMLA CAPSULES here . You can not dare to ignore it.

My regimen is very simple now. I will use Kaya soothing gel or Himalaya Neem Face Wash for CLEANSING. And Sebamed foam face wash (If Himalaya Neem is using for CLEANSING) or Himalaya Apricot Face Wash (If Kaya soothing is using for CLEANSING) for EXFOLIATION.

Yes, thats all! Definitely along with ALMA Capsules.

Read my detailed explanation about Amla in comments here too – .

And i MUST tell you that MY ACNE have been just HORRIBLE! I just managed to reduce them anyhow after coming to this site. But trust me, i have always had the EXTREME form of acne.


So, getting so much relief from Ala is such a relief.

The best thing is AMLA HAS NO SIDE-EFFECT AT ALL! It is not going to harm you anyway, MOSTLY!

Earlier i tried TRIPHALA also, and trust me that WORKS WONDERS TOO. But, Triphala is strong laxative and IS DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMENDABLE FOR PREGNANT LADIES!
And it is more of a Pitta Dosha Balancing in nature.

Amla powder thus has an edge over Triphala as it can be used by mothers, it is MILD laxative, it is TRIDOSHA BALANCING (Instead of just pitta dosha balancing). Thus, very UNIVERSAL in nature.


Congratulations! @nerd that amla have been proved so good for your skin.

I havd tried both amla & triphala in past for my contipation problem but they  dont have any effect on my acne.

So , I am happy that it works on your acne


Wow, Stay happy nerd 🙂

BTW how do you have the capsules?

Currently I am taking the powder from two capsules, mix it with water and have after my lunch. During weekdays I plan to take it in the morning itself.


@catonthewall WHAT THE F*** !! SandyThe Cat???

Dude, just take the capsule and drink it with water!

@parul one must wait for 3 months at least to show any visible change.

Also, r u sure yo were not using any comedogenic product at that time?


Nerd, ‘f***’ that doesn’t sound good to me, even as an expression of anger or irritation. Please don’t use it when you are addressing me 🙂

I remove the capsules because its kind of making me uncomfortable while swallowing it,  I don’t take tablets often, anything incorrect with that?

And I was asking about the ideal time to have it. I have read in a dietician’s book that the ideal time to supplement Vit C is after lunch, that’s why asked.




Sorry SandyTheCat! I dont know whether its correct or not. I can’t say anything on it. I hope it will not bring any change, but still try to have it normally only.


You can have it after diet or before diet. ANytime. I take it in the morning and in the evening after my meal. 🙂


Hi Nerd, this is wonderful info. 🙂 Amla should be way safer than Raktashodhak because no one knows the long term effects of taking Rakta Shodhak. It’s nice of you have posted such detailed information so people can get clear about the use, dose and effects of amla. Totally worth a shot.


Hi ,

I was planning to purchase baidyanath rakta shodhak before but I read some where on acnemantra that it is creating breakouts, some one posted it. Although most people have said that it causes dryness on skin and that is good.

But after reading your post regarding amla capsules, I am now planning to buy amla capsules and see if it works or not. Although I do not have acnes now on my body but some times get tiny nodular acne on face. Amla does not have side effects even if it is taken for long time. Sulphur(rakta shodhak) on the other hand might have side effects if taken for long time. so i am not going to take chances with sulphur and check if amla works for me.

Can you tell me where to get the organic india amla capsules online or medical stores?

Can you provide some website from where it can be ordered?


Thanks 🙂


@aarav had u tried searching, you would have found it SO SO EASILY here .
MOST of them offer free shipping. You must NOT use any comedogenic products at that time and use the capsules twice a day for 2 months before concluding anything.


One other good thing that i personally have felt about eating amla is its effect on digestion. It greatly improves it. I have also heard that it is good for hair.

@Nerd: Even i have got pigmentation Problem. Lot of pitted scars too. Can i give this a try. Do you think this might help me.(You could check out my pics from my profile to understand my condition)

@Acnemantra: Can u plz advise as well.. or can i wait till you come up with the process that you are working on.. to target the scars.


Thanks for the info Nerd.

I was searching on the ideal way to have the tablets and now I am planning to take one tablet before breakfast. This will help digestion.

While searching found some side effect if taken at the wrong time.   Please note this too.

A night dosage of amla just before sleep can certainly deteriorate the teeth in the same manner that over-exposure to citrus fruits may possibly, deteriorating tooth enamel; consumed in this way, amla could also annoy the throat.



@catonthewall Since i am here talking about the CAPSULES, the tooth decay is less likely to happen.

Amla generally helps in COUGH and COLD and other respiratory systems but YES if ur situation is adversely affected by Amla, then one should stop it.

I had already pointed it out here –


@Boss YES, Amla is a MILD LAXATIVE, it DOES help in digestion and liver detoxification.

Amla helps in reducing pigmentation definitely! With CONSISTENT USE and PATIENCE you will definitely see reduction in pigments because of high concentration of anti-oxidants in it. It is a natural exfoliator too.


Though Amla is found helpful for reducing wrinkles and control ageing, with respect to pitted scarring , DIRECT AND IMMEDIATE EFFECTS will be there- it can not be said. If it helps, it will show any result by CONTINUOUS, CONSISTENT use only.


Thanks @nerd

I will purchase organic india amla capsules online.

Is triphala also beneficial for noduler acne? have you tried and seen results?

I can see triphala capsules as well on the website.



Triphala is equally beneficial. YES, it could be very good for you.

BUT i don’t know the proper dose and proper care, one should take to have it.

I tried it, and yes it was showing benefits.


Aarav, you can take 1 capsule of Triphala every night and 1 capsule of Amla in the morning.


Hey Nerd,
i have been using amla powder since a long time.. i am aware of its numerous health benefits..

here i would like to understand one thing in context to amla and Vit C. We all know that amla is high in Vit C and Vit C is supposed to be very beneficial for skin issues…

Generally 100 gms of amla has 500-600 mg of vitamin c.. hence 1gm of amla powder equivalents too 5-6 mg of vitamin c…
If i am not wrong a human body needs 75-90 mg of vitamin c daily..

So just taking amla doesnt fulfills Vit C need.. U not taking anyother Vit C supplement along with amla ??




is this fine too or u would still recommend the organic india capusles?


@dennisdips  I am not bothered about the level of Vit. C in my body actually. So, i am not taking anything else for Vit. C .

If you want amla capsules for Vit. c only, you can have more amla capsules per day. Infact, one can try with 2 capsules per day and can increase upto 4 capsules per day.

I first increased my doses then when i saw CONSIDERABLE CONTROL OVER OILY SKIN and PIMPLES, i decreased a little bit and then maintaining it.

If you want to have Amla for Vit. C replenishment specifically, then you can keep 3-4 capsules per day.

@boss I know about Himalaya Amla Capsules. I have even written about it upwards. 🙂
You MAY try it. Different Brands have different qualities.


If you want Amla for specific purpose then start first with ORGANIC INDIA CAPSULES. Later, when your problem is considerably solved, you can try other brands like this.


I haven’t tried it. It’s OKAY in nature but one of the best and the safest brands is Organic India.


Ayurvedic medicine is always safer than regular medicine. Thank you @nerd for sharing this info. It’s most definitely worth a try 🙂


Thanks @padm1n1 . Amla Capsules here are not a medicine though in the strict sense.

It JUST contains the Amla Powder only.

When one use the capsule one know exactly how many grams/mgs of amla powder he is taking per day. Thus, one knows if certain amount is enough for me, if i can increase the amount , that i have no problem with this much amount of amla powder per day.

THUS, first try the capsules so that one gets the exact idea of how much one wanna have it. Then even if one choose Amla Powder instead of Amla Capsules, one will be able to determine exactly how much amount he should take.

And i think that even if someone starts from 2 Amla Capsules TWICE per day (4 Amla Capsules in total), then too its absolutely fine!!

If one is taking smaller dose regularly, wait for 3 months before losing hopes.

If one is taking 4 capsules , then wait at least for 2 months.



1. Not use any comedogenic product.

2. Not have Oily, spicy, fried food in their daily life.

3. HAVE FULL SLEEP, Not have any stress.


Besides Amla Capsules going on, one can also make the habit of having 1 RAW TOMATO EVERYDAY TWICE.
