Our products more than adequately meet the USA regulations for distributing these products as Food Supplements and Externally Applied Oils. This is due to identification and preservation of herbs and due to the manufacturing and QA procedures undertaken at Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala’s GMP certified manufacturing units in Kerala. The Ayurvedic products from Kerala are primarily composed of various botanical herbs. We are not distributing minerals or metals based Ayurvedic products. We are able to adequately meet the corresponding regulations backed by a large amount of in-house data from research on individual herbal ingredients.
Here, Dr. Rema Shree, Deputy Project Director, CMPR, explains it in brief:
Heavy Metal Test
Even though the products are primarily botanicals, all our products are still tested for Heavy Metal contents to be within the USA allowed limits. Each Batch is tested before being exported and on request we can provide the test reports. A sample report is here.
