Factors to consider

Our naturally grown wild crafted herbs come from their natural habitat. Natural habitat plays a key role in the potency of herbs, which is why we use wild crafted herbs, as opposed to less effective cultivated ones. Every herb is collected at its proper harvest time for higher potency.

High quality extracts / Standardized Extract of wild crafted herbs from their natural habitat.

In all our proprietary formulas and single formulas, we use high quality extracts (amount used is dependant on the potency and quality of the plants). Our extraction process uses the methodology most appropriate for each specific herb.

All binding ingredients used are taken from a natural source.

The quality and part of the plant along with the water used used are highly important in the manufacturing and processing of herbal powders.

The properties of single herb may differ from region to region. Ripening and timely harvesting are yet another important factor for the potency of any particular herb.

There are guidelines for collection of different herbs at different times and there is a particular span of time for collecting some particular herbs.

Every herb is collected during the full-ripened time; tested for its genuinness and strength of its active constituents. Naturally-grown herbs are preferable to cultivated herbs. Aromatic herbs or herbs having volatile oil are used in the natural form. The rest of the herbs are used in extract form because active principals vary from region to region and habitat to habitat. Total extract of herbs is used instead of isolated salts. Ancient Ayurveda has suggested many methods for analyzing the various herbs, but at that time herbs were used in their original form to powder, pills or juice of fresh herbs or distillate of herbs. All the suggestions and methods for identifying a particular herb were physical and taste based. Now, since a lot of work has been done, chemical tests are available for identification of true herbs and quantity of active constituents. We are equipped with a modern plant, machinery and quality assurance system and the herbs are tested for their complete strength, efficacy and safety. Good manufacturing practices are applied with a neat, clean and sanitary environment. Herbs are procured in season and stored in extract form. All the requirements regarding purity, quality and efficacy are totally complied with and given top priority from the time of procurement till ready for consumption.

Extraction of Herbs: Extracts are prepared either with water or according to the solubility of active principle of the herb. We extract each herb according to its own unique physical and biochemical characteristics. We dry the extracts with the micronized powder of the same herb. This increases the strength of the extract and the extracts get easier to dry. Less chances to take moisture from air. We do not add any additive.

This attention to detail produces a finished extract that optimally represents the herb from which it is made. Our extracts are very rich in the aroma, taste and contain bioactive compounds of the original herbs themselves. They are easily and optimally absorbed and assimilated by the body, and therefore their health-promoting effects are promptly felt.

Water Purification: Water is processed under DM plant, RO plant then converted in to steam. That steam water is used in the processing of herbs to avoid any chance of heavy metal contamination.

Naturally grown herbs are assumed to be more potent.

All related factors, including the above, are considered very carefully and thoroughly.

Wild crafted herbs from their natural habitat without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or preservatives.

Products as per Ayurvedic Standards: Our products are prepared as per traditional Ayurvedic standards. This means the micro pulverized powder of the herb impregnates with its own juice or decoction by trituration (bhavna). The trituration accentuates hidden medicinal properties of the herb and to ensure that the herb, as soon as administered, is absorbed quickly at the cell level. Subtlety should be the quality by virtue of which a product can penetrate into the smallest capillary and channels of the biological system.

The A-grade dried herbs are pulverized at an optimum frequency suitable to retain its active properties and thereafter potentiated using in-house developed Bhavana-decoction of the same complete herb (Traditional ayurvedic system to fortify the herb). Then that decoction is added to the same herb and thereafter micro-pulverised to make them free flowing.

Note: Bhavana-decoction method is based on Traditional Ayurvedic principle "Mardanam Gunvardhnam" means "Trituration increases the efficacy to many folds".

Manufacturing activities are carried out in newly-built premises. Quality control measurements are taken under the guidelines of a highly experienced and qualified person, having a vast knowledge of analytical chemistry and an Associate of Institute of Chemists to maintain strict standards and comply with all requirements from the time of procurement to finished product.

Vegetarian capsules are cellulose based capsule shells that are used to encapsulate the material. Vegetarian capsules are made from a substance called HPMC, which stands for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (often shortened to hypromellose). This contains no animal matter (unlike gelatin capsules) and is suitable for all.

One of the benefits of having capsules is that capsules have a consistent disintegration time, typically less than 30 minutes i.e. the capsule shell takes about 30 minutes to disintegrate once it has been eaten. Another benefit of taking capsules is that the capsule shell offers excellent protection for oxygen sensitive ingredients so capsulated supplements will stay fresher longer.
