Top Ten Reasons to Choose Maharishi Ayurveda Products
1. Thousands of years of clinical results
Maharishi Ayurveda herbal formulations are not random mixtures based on the latest health craze. These formulas are derived from ayurveda, a health science as old as human history.
2. Expert supervision over formulation and processing
The Council of Maharishi Ayurveda Physicians oversees product formulation and processing to ensure authenticity and adherence to the ayurvedic texts.
3. Whole herbs, not isolated "active" ingredients
Maharishi Ayurveda formulations are made from whole herbs, because we understand that Nature's health wisdom is a delicate balance that resides in the biological intelligence of a whole herb, not in isolated chemicals or active ingredients.
4. Herbal teamwork for optimum health
Our herbal formulations are precise blends of different herbs, carefully selected to work together and create synergy and balance, so you get the benefits and no side effects.
5. Full potency harvesting
The potency of an herb varies with the seasons. We've trained more than 6,000 individuals to harvest the herbs by hand. Each plant is picked at the ideal time, contributing to the potency of the final formula.
6. Expert herbalists for identification and sorting
After the harvest, each herb has to be identified, sorted, cleaned and stored in a specific way. Traditional experts in dravyaguna, the science of plant identification, inspect each batch of herbs. We maintain stringent standards for purity and potency.
7. Meticulous processing -- no shortcuts
The authentic formulation is only the beginning. We follow through with traditional processing. Some of our ingredients take over six months to prepare.
8. ISO 9001 certified manufacturing
Our state-of-the-art, hygienic processing facilities were designed by a team of ayurvedic experts, food technologists and scientists to blend the best of the ancient and the modern.
9. Triple-tested in-house for quality
Each batch of herbs is tested when it arrives at our central processing plants*. Advanced technology including High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is used to verify the biological components of each herb. Each batch of herbs is also tested for heavy metal contaminants that can occur accidentally by air pollution from distant cities. Special equipment identifies the type and amount of any metallic residues to prevent contaminants. All natural farming or harvesting involves biological risks, but our herbs are thoroughly tested after processing to avoid any possible biological contaminants.
10. Independent Testing
Upon arrival in the United States, each batch of finished product (with the exception of MA and Veda herbs, and personal care products) is tested in a premier independent analytical testing facility** for the natural products industry. Our products undergo testing against requirements that exceed all Western standards for purity, freshness and microbiological safety.
* The in-house laboratory in India has been accredited by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL).
** The independent laboratory used for testing in the US has been accredited by A2LA and meets ISO 17025:1999 standards.
