Nelli, the rejuvenating fruit


Protection against free radicals from the Nelli fruit

About the plant

A member of the spurge (Euphorbiaceae) family, Phyllanthus emblica (Nelli) is one of the oldest and best-known fruits in the whole of Asia.

For millennia, Nelli has been consumed by disciples of Ayurveda both as a rejuvenant and as a cure-all to maintain health, boost vitality and improve performance. ‘Nelli’ is the affectionate name given to this 5000-year-old traditional medicinal plant by the indigenous population of Sri Lanka.

In the mid-1990s, scientists began to cultivate the nutritionally rich fruits in Sri Lanka’s tropical climate in mixed cultures with other native plants under ecological conditions.




An active fruit vitamin that boosts health

The red or greenish-yellow Nelli fruit outwardly resembles the gooseberry, but has an extremely sour flavour. This is a clue to one of the fruit’s secrets: Nelli fruits have an extremely high vitamin C content, one of the highest known in any fruit. Thanks to the Nelli fruit’s many different nutrients, the vitamin C is active in the body for several days, as it is protected and stabilised by bioflavonoids and tannins. In this way it unleashes its beneficial effects on the organism.

The choicest of these especially nutrient-rich fruits contain the rejuvenating enzyme superoxide dismutase, known to have a direct limiting and inhibiting effect on the damage caused by free radicals. The enzyme is particularly good at fulfilling this task when teamed with vitamins (especially vitamin C), minerals and trace elements. Modern analytical methods have shown that the Nelli fruit supplies this balanced spectrum of important natural building blocks for life. This explains why Ayurvedic tradition has described Phyllanthus emblica as a “rejuvenating fruit” for 5000 years.




How free radicals affect the body

“Free radicals” are aggressive oxygen compounds that form in our bodies. They are the main cause of the organism’s ageing process, such as ageing skin and greying hair, and are also the source of many diseases. When the proportion of free radicals in the body is too high, the collagen fibres lose elasticity and the ageing process in the skin and the entire organism is accelerated. Outwardly, this is visible in the formation of wrinkles and a lack of elasticity, but it can also be perceptible in the body, for example in joint pain.

The Nelli fruit is rich in superoxide dismutase, a particularly effective enzyme. Combined with vitamin C and minerals, especially zinc, it protects the human body from the damaging effects of free radicals.
