Strict Traditional Ayurvedic Guidelines
Maharishi Ayurveda products are produced strictly according to traditional Ayurvedic guidelines, so that they unfold the full potential of this precious knowledge. All production processes are supervised by a council of Vaidyas (Ayurvedic experts). This council of Vaidyas was founded by the leading experts in India:

- , leading expert in Dravyaguna, how to use the intelligence of plants to support and maximise health and well-being.

Added Safety as a Result of our Own Production Facilities in India
All herbal formulas imported from India come from our parent company Maharishi Ayurveda Products India. This means we can be sure of consistent high quality. In addition to those people employed in processing and quality control, Maharishi Ayurveda also uses a large number of pickers, who are specially trained in gathering the fruits and herbs. Rare plants are cultivated specially, to protect and preserve the wealth of Indian flora.
Only the Best Raw Materials are Used
The usefulness of plant material varies with the season, the moon's cycle and time of day. The Maharishi Ayurveda pickers are trained to harvest each herb when it is in its most intelligent and valuable state. After harvesting, each delivery batch is meticulously tested, sorted and cleaned. Raw materials are discarded if in the opinion of our experts if they fail to meet the required quality standards in terms of purity, ripeness, or potency.
Quality Control in Accordance with Certified Standards
In addition to the preservation of age-old knowledge, top-level modern quality controls conducted according to international standards are an integral aspect of production. Maharishi Ayurveda Products Ltd in India was the first Ayurvedic company to achieve the international quality standard ISO9001 and is now certified for ISO9001 (2001), HACCP and GMP (good manufacturing practice).
Independent European Laboratories
For all products, each lot is also tested for unwanted bacteria, fungi, micro-organisms, heavy metals, and toxins, in order to give you maximum safety. These checks are conducted in independent laboratories in Europe.

The Daily Supplement for Health and Balance
The aim of Ayurveda is to promote the highest quality of health possible - that state in which one is living the full potential of life - and it emphasises the importance of taste and diet in maintaining and promoting health. The fullest understanding of the role of diet in health is based on the concept of intelligence. The most fundamental benefit of food is not just the chemical and mineral constituents and its energy value but rather its intelligence.
Freshly cooked food is more valuable than processed or stale food because its intelligence or complexity value is greater. For the same reason whole herbs are more valuable than active ingredients. In Maharishi Ayurveda preparations careful collection, preparation and combination of herbal ingredients ensures the highest complexity, intelligence and health promoting properties.
Every Preparation is an Expression of Timeless Knowledge
Maharishi Ayurveda preparations are sophisticated blends made faithfully in accord with the principles and sometimes elaborate procedures laid down in the ancient Ayurvedic texts. This knowledge has withstood the test of time.
Typically a Maharishi Ayurveda preparation may contain the following elements
- One or two main ingredients that provide the particular quality of intelligence that is required to support the bodily function concerned.
- Herbs that support the function of the main herbs.
- Herbs that promote the absorption of the main herbs.
- Herbs that promote the translocation and utilisation of the main herbs.
- Herbs that balance any possible side effects from the other herbs.
