Food for your health – Herbs and its uses

I recently met a dietitian who asked me to include some healthy stuff in my diet on a regular basis. Though no one diagnosed any medical problem but as per them if you want to stay fit and healthy, you need to include these things in your daily diet. I think taking 2 spoon of Amla juice in the morning doesn’t take too long time to give to your health. Rightly said “Health is Wealth”. These days with the growing economy, you don’t need to buy amla and get the juice but you get the juice available at the store. There are few things which as per my research I found should be included in the daily diet.
