Āmalakyādi (आमलक्यादि) is the Sanskrit name for a group of medicinal plants, classified as being a general febrifuge, an aphrodisiac, a general tonic or restorative and an appetiser. It can also be spelled as Āmlakyādi (आम्लक्यादि). It was originally composed by Suśruta in his Suśrutasaṃhitā sūtrasthāna XXXVIII, a classic work on Āyurveda. The name is derived from the words Āmalakī (Phyllanthus emblica) and ādi, translating to “first” or “commencement”. Examples of plants pertaining to this category include Āmalakī (or Āmlakī), Haritakī, Pippalī and Citraka. The collection of herbs named Āmalakyādi is but one of the thirty-seven gaṇas (‘sections’) of such groups.(Source): Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany
