Ayurvedic Products Standards

Standardization of Ayurvedic Products is difficult task as chemical or pharmaceutical composition of ingredients cannot be fixed.

Further, the companies mention doses in milligrams and consumers have no weighing balances to measure quantity medicine to be consumed.

Better mention one or two tablets to be consumed before or after meals or powders are to measured 5 or 10 gram spoons.

Actually a lot of research is required in Chemistry & biochemistry to identify chemical formulae & effect of quantity of drug on patient. more

It is a secret understanding with the Doctors that the pharmaceutical companies never disclose the dosages, so that people have to depend on Doctors. more  
Patanjal research lab is a ultra modern standardisation and quality check facilities. the sample of the raw materials as well as the final end products are checked for the quality. Being a non profit organization ( allmost all the profits are used for social causes like vadic education, research on organic farming, improving the breed of cows, free consultation and yog classes for masses etc,), we can depend upon their medicinces for quality, effectiveness and cost. more

As in the case of all the edible consumables, there are two stages. One stage is of the Raw Material that goes in as input in the manufacture of the final product whether it is food or the medicines. And, the other stage is at the final processing level when the Standards of finished products are decided. In the case of Ayurvedic medicines, the standards of the raw material is very important as the quality deteriorates of the raw materials, herbals and minerals, often deteriorates in the humid environment because of the poor storing. The manufacturers of the final products have got to adopt and declare the Standards of the input raw materials used. more  
I agree with the comments of of Sri Amitava Sur and Dilip Brahme. And in a country where even a simple, unambiguous and crisp law like the Right to Information Act has been murdered by the very information commissioners tasked, empowered, equipped and paid to enforce it and where even the daily use food items are dangerously contaminated with pesticides, insecticides and cheap adulterants by greedy mercenaries the task is enormous. But to begin with at least those who cheat the public and endanger their health should be punished in an exemplary manner. more
