Patanjali Ayurved Limited


Patanjali Ayurved Ltd. is located at plot no. D-38, Hardwar industrial area, . It is a planned centre for production of pure and effective, scientifically developed Herbomineral medicines. Param Pujya Swami Ramdev Ji Maharaj and Acharya Balkrishna Ji Maharaj founded the Patanjali Ayurved Ltd. in 2006 with a determined objective and vision to bring Ayurveda to world in scientifically approved form by amalgamation of science with ancient Ayurvedic wisdom.

This includes review of traditional Indian scientific texts, selecting and exploring effective authentic herbs and subjecting the formulations to modern Pharmacological, toxicological and safety tests to create safe and effective new products.

The metals are the starting points of Herbomineral preparations called Bhasmas and Rasas. Bhasmas are metals that go through a purification process that turns them into ash where as Rasas are Herbomineral materials that undergoes various traditional purification and detoxification processes and turn in to therapeutically active material.

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) report on heavy metal content in Ayurvedic medicines, along with Canada banning the import of Herbomineral preparations is giving the industry sleepless nights.

Indian Government has done very little work on validation of our ancient science. According to the Indian System of Medicine, the deficiency of essential minerals and metals could lead the life towards many diseases. The western world also relying upon this fact and their medicine system is also prescribe the use of metals in different forms for example: Iron, Calcium, Aluminium etc.

The modern medicine of cancer uses the active constituents of platinum as chemotherapeutic agent. So for the Govt. of India has not done the enough work for authentication, validation and research studies on the literature of ISM where as the ISM has been reliably practiced a successfully used since more than 5000 years.
