Manufacturing

A fetish for perfection and high standards prompted Ayushakti to establish its own modern herbal factory at Palghar, a two-hour suburb of Mumbai. For the past 18 years, Vaidya Smita Naram and her team have overseen quality control of all the Ayushakti herbs and to do so, they had to overcome several hurdles. First, to create the potent Ayurvedic medicines as prescribed in the ancient times, Vaidya Smita Naram needed to find highly concentrated herbal extracts (ghana) for a base. Vaidya Smita Naram insisted on this for all their 350 herbal formulas. Thousands of years ago, herbs were more potent because the soil was more fertile. (there were no chemical fertilizers and no pesticides in use two thousand years ago!) So, maintaining authenticity for their herbs proved to be quite a challenge! Secondly, there was no uniformity in quality as suppliers had different benchmarks of quality. Therefore batches of the same medicine from herbal producers often varied in consistency.

All this prompted Vaidya Smita Naram to go on a nationwide hunt ten years ago for an herbal ingredient supplier with the necessary concentrated extracts. Only a couple of suppliers measured up to her meticulous standards and these were chosen to be the certified suppliers for Ayushakti. Vaidya Smita Naram began to order specific herbal ingredients from them in concentrated measures.
All of the Ayushakti herbal ingredients are carefully chosen, measured, and mixed according to ancient methods. The Ayushakti products are manufactured under the strict supervision of technically qualified personnel and tested for heavy metals, micro-organisms, and other international parameters according to authoritative health guidelines. Only ingredients carrying the Ayushakti quality seal are used. Ayushakti goes the extra mile to ensure quality control in manufacturing their wide array of authentic Ayurveda herbal remedies worldwid

Ayushakti Quality Control & Heavy Metals Testing

Dear All,
You may have heard the news reports about a study that detected heavy metals in some imported Ayurvedic products. We have heard from many people asking, Is this true? Do we need to worry?
And the answer is: It is both true and untrue. It can happen that environmental pollutants or contaminants, such as mercury, lead, chromium, arsenic, etc., find their way into Ayurvedic formulations during the manufacturing process.

You will be very pleased to know, however, that a sample of each batch of Ayushakti herbs is sent from the manufacturing facility to a European laboratory for testing to international standards.

Herbs are released for export to the USA, Europe and Australia only when test results show that the heavy metals content is within regulatory limits prescribed by international authorities. The products sold in India go through the same quality control parameters.

We have the certificates and full documentation of the process on file.

At our factory, we have all the necessary equipment for removing heavy metals during the manufacturing process and, because of our commitment to serving humanity, we spare no expense of time, money or energy in creating every batch of herbal remedies in their purest form and highest quality.

Vaidya Smita Naram and the Ayushakti staff are very conscious of and committed to the safety of all living beings, including all the people who take our remedies. Our mission, our seva, is to be the instrument of Lord Dhanwantari, the Lord of Ayurveda, in bringing true Ayurveda to this planet in the next thirty years. This is our vision and our offering to the Yajna fire of consciousness.

Lots of love,
Mr. V.Y. Pujari, Consultant – Legal (Research & Development), Ayushakti
