Bhumi Amla is a tropical plant that is widely cultivated in coastal regions of India, China, and islands in North and Central America. It is an important herb in Ayurveda for treating liver problems as well as many other health concerns. Only growing to a height of 50 to 70 cm, the plant has smooth, light-green bark and herbaceous branches with tiny, thin, elliptical leaves placed alternately. The plant produces tiny, soft fruits that resemble capsules and are filled with numerous tiny seeds. The flowers are a pale green colour with crimson striations.

Bhumi Amla, scientific name Phyllanthus niruri, is also referred to as "Dukong anak" and "Bhumi Amalaki" in sanskrit. Many therapeutic qualities are present throughout the entire plant.

Because to its hepatoprotective, antioxidant, and antiviral properties, Bhumi Amla aids in the management of liver problems and repairs any liver damage. By lowering gastric acid production and defending the stomach lining from harm brought on by too much gastric acid, it also aids in the prevention of ulcers. Bhumi Amla's diuretic properties may also help to lower the risk of kidney stone formation. It accomplishes this by encouraging the elimination of salts—most notably the crystals of oxalate—that contribute to kidney stone development.

This herb, which is a member of the Euphorbiaceae family, offers a variety of medicinal properties. It is widely utilised on a global scale. Leprosy, asthma, anaemia, bronchitis, urinary issues, and other illnesses are all treated using Phyllanthus niruri plant extract.
