In-house manufacturing, lab testing, and heavy metal testing of all herbs grown and cultivated in Himachal Pradesh region confirms that this area, which is the natural habitat of most Ayurvedic herbs, yields the highest quality herbs. As the extracts are concentrated, they go through another inspection for heavy metals and microbiological testing. Independent third party testing is completed on all materials and again on the finished products.
