Re: Synthetic Vitamin C vs Amla

Do you know if Amla is a nightshade or not.. ?

I am concerned about Amla / Indian Gooseberry being a nightshade in the Solanaceae family or does it just contain Solanine? I am very sensitive to nightshade foods- can cause up to 3 months joint pain.

Some places online list it as a nightshade and some do not!

This was listed on Amazon...
Amalaki Amla (Indian Gooseberry) powder 1lb (16oz) wild harvested, safety tested by Vadik Herbs
Amalaki Amla (Indian Gooseberry)...
Does anyone know if this (Amla / Amalaki / Indian Gooseberry) is in the nightshade family?

Amy's list of nightshade fruits and vegetables says that it is a nightshade:

Amla is classified as a member of the Phyllanthaceae family; nightshades are all members of the Solanaceae family, so the answer is no.

Night shades are usually smaller annual plants. if you Google image the Indian gooseberry it's definitely a perennial large shrub or small tree. It doesn't have any of the characteristics of a night shade either. Night shades are commonly poisonous/inedible except the fruit (potato/tomato/peppers/tobacco). I know they use different parts of the gooseberry tree/shrub. I'm almost certain it's not even close to a night shade.
Do you know of any Amla in powder form? I might need to try a tiny bit to test-- I really want a good supplemental 'C' source.
