All our herbal preparations are newly provided with three quality markings according to the method of processing, for which we can fully guarantee ourselves from the point of view of Ayurveda as a manufacturer. Learn what each label means and on which products you can find it.
Ayurveda, or the science of life and longevity, is based on a deep knowledge of nature and its laws, which helped the first Ayurvedic scholars of ancient India to understand simple wisdom: all the herbs that surround us are good for human health. With traditional hand processing and harvesting in pure nature, Ayurvedic herbs retain their centuries-old proven effects. Their right combinations together with the observance of the natural principles of a healthy lifestyle in accordance with our individual constitution strengthen or restore the overall health of the body.
Authentic Ayurveda - Himalayan Herbs
You will find this logo on all 57 types of Ayurvedic Teas. Our family production of herbal teas in Nepal approaches the processing of Ayurvedic herbs in a very traditional way. Herbs are collected wildly in a large area of western, southern and northeastern Nepal. Some plants are picked in the higher altitudes of the Himalayas, yet some are harvested in the tradition of family generations in small fields in the Himalayan foothills, where due to the regular monsoon season there is enough moisture, which together with subtropical climate and fertile soil provides ideal conditions for naturally organic farming. After careful drying of herbs in the sun, the cleaning process takes place, and only then are the individually ground parts of the plants (flowers, fruits, seeds, stems, leaves, bark, rhizomes and roots) mixed according to Ayurvedic recipes. The whole process of preparing herbal teas takes place in a completely traditional way on the basis of purely manual processing without the technical equipment of modern mechanization. Based on this approach, which goes hand in hand with the harmony of nature and the rhythm of local life, each herb retains not only its healthy extracts, but also its healing potency, which is called prabhava in Ayurveda.
The new "Authentic Ayurveda - Himalayan Herbs" logo guarantees that a cup of every tea you make contains Ayurvedic herbs harvested on healthy soil in pure nature and processed by local people at the foot of the Himalayas.
"When we make teas, we don't think we're making a product, but we just do it with the feeling of making a meal for the whole family in the kitchen." - Suresh Kumar Sah, Ph.D. (Everest Ayurveda Herbal Production Manager, Nepal)
Authentic Ayurveda - 100% Natural
You will find this logo on our Herbal Nutritive and Purifying Elixirs as well as Ayurvedic Fruits. This means that all the ingredients used in the products labeled in this way come from local growers from purely natural sources and are prepared in the traditional Ayurvedic way.
The preparation of herbal elixirs or avalehas takes place exactly as their preparation is described in classical Ayurvedic texts. They are based on the highly prized Ayurvedic fruit Amla, which contains a high amount of antioxidants and vitamin C. Amla comes from small growers, who harvest it by hand from the trees of the Embilica officinalis in their naturally occurring regions of Rajasthan and Gujarat. The Amla fruit is first immersed in a hot water bath to separate its nutritious flesh from the core. An herbal decoction is then prepared from a mixture of individual parts of dozens of plants, which is then mixed with the soft pulp of the Amla fruit. In the following process of further heating, the excess water evaporates until only a consistency in the form of herbal jam remains in the final phase. In essence, it is the basis of a toning herbal elixir called Chyawanprash, which regenerates bodily tissues and strengthens the body's immune system. Modern scientific research has shown that Amla has an extremely high retention capacity. It can retain 95% of its nutrients, including vitamin C, regardless of the treatment process.
Other Ayurvedic fruits such as royal mango, jackfruit and papaya come from areas of the West and South India, which are not only home to their natural habitat, but also the masterpiece of the local people in their processing skills. According to the Ayurvedic proverb, which says " there is no plant in the world that is not good for something," these fruits also contain many vitamins, minerals and nutrients. For the best preservation of all nutrients, the so-called blanching process is used in their processing. This method consists in immersing fresh fruit in hot water for 8 minutes. It is then cut into thin slices, which are immersed in diluted freshly squeezed sugar cane juice. Finally, the sliced pieces of fruit are rinsed with cold water to remove excess syrup from the surface of the fruit pulp. The fruit pieces are then carefully dried using solar energy. Thanks to this gentle preparation process, the fruit retains its durability and juicy taste without any additional preservatives.
RAW Quality - 100% Natural
This label adorns the modern range of our Ayurvedic hot drinks. Finely ground powder from Ayurvedic Amla fruit together with other types of healthy superfoods is prepared up to a maximum temperature of 45 °C (113 °F), and therefore we can guarantee its RAW quality.
Freshly picked Amla is dried by local people in the sun by spreading them on the flat roofs of their homes. Then it is finely ground and mixed with pure ground powder of 11 other ingredients such as ashwagandha, shatavari, turmeric, ginger, moringa, young barley, spirulina, rose and lotus, which are grown completely organically in the large gardens of our production in Indian Gujarat. Shilajit-mumio, which we also mix with amalaki, then comes from the Indian part of the Himalayas in the areas of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, where it is collected from rock walls in the form of a quality sediment composed of a natural mixture of organic and inorganic substances, rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
