Amrita Veda and Heavy Metals

Amrita Veda herbs are made in a factory licenced by the FDA to produce Ayurvedic Products. This factory also has a GMP certificate (Good Manufacturing Practises) which involves very high standards of quality, safety and hygiene, world-wide. This certifies that the factory meets very rigourous standards for the production of Ayurvedic products from the raw material to the finished good. In fact, our manufacturing plant is one of the best GMP certified plants on record with the Indian and US FDA!

Ayurvedic Herbs and Heavy Metals: As always, we assure you that all the products supplied by Amrita Veda are free from heavy metals and adhere to the FDA recommendations. All our products are tested for these heavy metals at our own laboratory and are also tested from a independant lab, approved by the FDA, in India. This will assure a high degree of product safety and these tests are posted under the herbal products available on our website. We at Amrita Veda guarantee that our herbal products are of the highest quality as well as being highly potent Ayurvedic formulas.

Herbal medicine is governed by Dietary Supplements Health Education Act [DSHEA] not FDA [Federal Drug Administration]. The act establishes a separate class from food and drugs for nutrients and herbal products named “Dietary Supplements.” The FDA does not request specific approval for claims made by supplement manufacturers but instead requires them to submit their claims and place disclaimers on packages and advertising stating, “This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.”

Safety of Ayurvedic Metallic Preparations
The Story .... The December 14, 2004 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association included a report of research done at Harvard by a team led by Robert B. Saper, MD, MPH,(1) that exploded across the U.S. and even overseas. The news resulted in worried patients calling their Ayurvedic practitioners for assurance that their recommended herbal protocols were not those containing toxic metals. In turn, practitioners were turning to their herbal suppliers for confirmation that the herbs they offered were “safe.”
