Gooseberries are Good for the Gut

Posted on 05 March 2018 by Douglas Merrow

Researchers from Malaysia’s Islamic Science University tested 30 patients with gastrointestinal issues, dividing them into three groups. One received lactose, a placebo; another group was given omeprazole, an over-the-counter remedy; and the third Phyllanthus emblica Linn, an ayurvedic treatment for gastrointestinal issues also known as Indian gooseberry.

has gastroprotective effects in humans that justify its traditional use.”
