Maharishi Ayurveda Products International is a natural, wellness-oriented approach to healthcare. At Maharishi Ayurveda we embrace traditional ayurveda, using the knowledge of whole plants, synergistically combined. Our ayurveda formulations are authentic, and are based on the written records of this complete healthcare system dating back 5,000 years. This is why we say “Authentic Ayurveda” and “Time-Tested.”
Ayurveda means “Science of Life” in Sanskrit. This is what Marharishi Ayurveda offers — a complete science of natural health addressing mind, body, emotions and consciousness.
At our facilities in India, 20 master Vaidyas oversee every step of the manufacturing process. These Vaidyas, or traditional ayurveda experts, have maintained this knowledge by passing it down from generation to generation for thousands of years.
The Maharishi Ayurveda Story
Our goal is to help every individual enjoy ideal health. The ideal of this level of health goes back much farther than 1985, when we incorporated in the U.S. as Maharishi Ayurveda Products International.
The original science of health is as old as the human race. It's called Ayurveda, which is Sanskrit for “science of life.” The written records of this complete system of natural health care are about 5,000 years old. From age to age, sages and physicians have rediscovered and revived this timeless body of natural health knowledge.
In 1980, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Meditation program, began working with three of India's top Ayurvedic experts: Dr. V.M. Dwivedi, Dr. B.D. Triguna and Dr. Balaraj Maharishi. They restored this ancient knowledge of health both on the level of antiquity herb processing, selection and preparation, and by restoring the critical role of transcendence - or consciousness - in human health. This restored body of ayurvedic knowledge is called Maharishi Ayurveda. A special medical council was formed to oversee the creation of authentic herbal formulas according to the requirements of the ayurvedic texts. We also established an international network of doctors, clinics and schools that are dedicated to eliminating disease and offering perfect health to the people of every nation.
The Making of an Herbal Masterpiece
When your body is out of balance, it’s like a guitar out of tune. Maharishi Ayurveda products act as a tuner, bringing specific aspects of the mind-body system back into balance and eliminating the problem at its source.
Whole Herbs vs. Active Ingredients - Antiquity Processing
The herbs in Maharishi Ayurveda products are prepared in the traditional ayurvedic way, according to the 5,000-year-old texts of ayurveda. This process emphasizes not only selection of properly developed plants, but in-depth processing details that utilize the whole herb instead of single active ingredients. This improves assimilation, creates holistic balance, prevents negative side effects and supports consciousness and emotions — significant factors in health.
The Magic of Synergy
The science of combining to create results far greater than the benefits of each herb in isolation. Every herb has a specific function. This is called sanyog in ayurveda.* The balancing herbs are crucial because they cancel any side effects that could result from taking single herbs in isolation over the long term.
Rigorous Standards for Safety and Testing
As a pioneer in the global resurgence of ayurveda, Maharishi Ayurveda Products is committed to following traditional methods while employing the highest standards of quality control. We throw away any ingredients that do not meet standards of quality, cleanliness and safety. In addition, a council of leading ayurvedic physicians oversees the formulation and production of each herbal product. Using rigorous testing, we ensure that our products are safe from contaminants such as heavy metals.
