Tested and Safe
Our Commitment to Purity
Maharishi Ayurveda Products International
If you are taking any herbal products from India or elsewhere in the world, we recommend that you verify that the products are tested for safety.
Maharishi Ayurveda USA uses only ingredients and herbal products that meet our rigorous standards for safety. We follow the traditional methods of Ayurveda while employing the highest standards of quality control. To ensure purity, Maharishi Ayurveda USA products are tested before, during and after manufacture and then tested again by an accredited independent analytical laboratory (that meets ISO 17025 standards), prior to distribution.
