Ayurveda Organic Extracts

The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda translates to knowledge of life, as it was originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. It is based on the idea that diseases are due to an imbalance or stress in a person s consciousness. Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.

Ayurveda treatment starts with an internal purification process, followed by a special diet, herbal remedies, massage therapy, yoga, and meditation. It is based on the blending of specific plants to common health conditions. Today, a number of these botanicals have been studied using modern tools to understand their mechanisms of action and demonstrate such health benefit.

NutriOriginal has partnered with StarHi Herbs in Bangalore, India, to bring you these ancient powders, concentrates and extracts for further formulation into supplements. StarHi has direct control over cultivation of the botanicals, so no pesticides or chemicals are used, and to harvest at its prime.
