Indian Herbs is the world's leading company for the production of Ayurvedic drugs.
The history and policy of the company is a unique fusion of the experience of generations with modern science and technology.
Indian Herbs was founded in 1951. It is a leading research company that has been producing medicinal plant products for more than 50 years.
The founder of the company was Shri Ram Lal Agrawal. He was inspired by the idea of herbal medicine and in his interview published in the practical medicine magazine "The Practitioner" in December 1950, he wrote:
"The wisdom of our people is built on the experience of generations, often many centuries. And the data on which this wisdom is based are often obtained at the cost of human lives, the number of which is impossible for a modern researcher to estimate. This is especially relevant at the present time, when pharmaceutical companies around the world are releasing a continuous stream of new synthetic drugs. And it is precisely now that our attention should be drawn to the means that can be found among the native herbs of this country."
10Shri Ram Lal Agrawal was a well-known expert in the identification, classification and therapeutic use of plants. He was fascinated by the virtues of 5,000-year-old ancient Indian medicine called Ayurveda, which opens up enormous possibilities of using herbs to treat people.

The company's scientists choose the best plant materials, taking into account the place of growth, the conformity of soils and natural conditions. Of great importance is the time of harvest, compliance with the technology of collection, transportation and storage of plant materials.
Our quality control laboratories keep samples and maintain a special database containing complete information, certified by experts, regarding each batch of raw materials used in production.
Our research center has developed special recommendations and requirements for the cultivation of plant materials containing the optimal amount of active ingredients. These methods are used both on our farms and on other agricultural enterprises with which we cooperate. Compliance with the relevant requirements is constantly monitored by our experts and allows us to guarantee the high quality of plant products.
