All Natural, Vegetarian & Tested For Heavy Metals
All our formulations are tested for heavy metals both at our facilities in India* and again in USA** (with the exception of MA and Veda herbs, and personal care products which are tested once in our Indian facility).
Our formulations are all-natural—they contain no artificial colors of flavors or excipients of any kind. Natural binders collected from the wild, such as gum arabic, are the only binders used in some formulas. All capsules are vegetarian, and the coatings on tablets are vegetable glycerin.
Every batch of finished product undergoes a battery of tests at our state-of-the-art processing facility in India*. These tests include examination for overall purity, heavy metals (lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury), residual pesticides and biological contamination.
All product (with the exception of MA and Veda herbs, and personal care products) is again subjected to a series of tests by an independent U.S. laboratory** when arrives in the United States, before it is bottled for sale.
The Maharishi Ayurveda manufacturing facility in India has earned a number of international quality certifications:
ISO 9001 - ISO certification is the international standard for assessing management, testing and manufacturing for production companies. The ISO review targets twenty quality categories including design control, production, storage, inspection and testing procedures. The stringent criteria used to evaluate Maharishi Ayurveda are the same as those used to assess nuclear power plants.
GMP - The Good Manufacturing Practices certification is awarded for manufacturing and delivering consistently effective, safe and reliable products batch after batch. An independent panel of experts conducts extensive investigations to verify that the company has established manufacturing systems and practices that ensure error-free, safe and consistently high quality products before this certification is issued.
HACCP - Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points requires a close focus on achieving step-by-step process quality at all stages of production identified as critical control points. The objective is to produce and deliver health-hazard free (i.e., clinically safe) products.
