One Comment

  1. I have started using amla juice just a few months ago and Patanjali is the only brand I have used. Therefore I can’t comment on the color but before I used to eat amla or murabba to get the benefits (never extracted juice at home)but the amla juice is really handy and can be used everyday. I will try out other brands as well, thank you for the information.
