Amla’s original name Amalaki translates to nurse, mother and immortal. It was described in the ancient texts of Ayurveda as peerless amongst rejuvenating therapies.

Today, Arjuna is celebrated for its ability to promote cardiac function, oxygenation of the heart and maintain cholesterol levels already within normal range.*
Ashwagandha translates to scent of a horse, alluding to the power and strength it bestows. It was considered chief among the rasayana or rejuvenative herbs now called adaptogens.*
Often referred to as Indian ginseng, Ashwagandha is noted for its ability to fortify adrenal function, energy and stress levels but differs from Ginseng as it is not a stimulant.*
Originally called Brahmi, meaning sacred, holy and divine, today Bacopa is considered to be one of the most impressive adaptogens known, empowering clarity of thought and peace of mind.*
Researchers have proposed a myriad of possible actions for Bacopa including mental alertness, cognitive support, antioxidant activity and mood supporting properties. Bacopa promotes verbal learning, memory and retention.*

Modern research has revealed an array of unique plant compounds that mirror and support pancreatic function and insulin production.*
Garcinia was traditionally used in Ayurveda to support digestion and appetite for thousands of years but its popularity in the West exploded overnight. This small, bitter fruit was traditionally used to tone the digestive system, a key area for appetite support.*

Modern researchers agree with the traditional use, finding that it may provide relief from occasional upset stomach or intermittent nausea due to travel.*
Guduchi was named Amrita in the ancient texts of Ayurveda, meaning divine nectar. It was thought to produce ojas, or immunity and life-force.*
Its popularity throughout history and today is most likely because the texts said it had a special power called samanam, meaning it bestowed balance throughout the entire body.*
The ancient texts of Ayurveda which first identified Gymnema called it Gurmar or Sugar Destroyer. This time-tested plant has been used for thousands of years to support digestion and normal kidney function.*
Research has shown Gymnema’s unique plant chemistry supports the metabolism of refined carbohydrates in both the digestive system and the pancreas.*
Used as a part of a healthy diet, Gymnema supports blood sugar balance already within the normal range.*

Ayurveda made Tribulus famous as a reproductive and urinary tonic but also says it is a full-body, restorative adaptogen. The ancient texts call Tribulus a rasayana, a select categorization of plants that bestow longevity and vitality.*
This ancient explanation shines light on its diverse actions observed in research. Tribulus promotes genitourinary function and supports prostate health, libido and physical energy.
Ayurvedic texts described the digestive system as a fire whose responsibility was to transform energy into our own life-force. When we overindulge with food, we can dampen that fire, leaving behind smoldering flames in the form of gas, bloating and occasional heartburn.*
To this end, Ayurveda guides us to what is now famously called Trikatu, or three pungents. Comprised of Ginger and two species of Pepper fruit, Trikatu primes the stomach and tones the mucosal lining to safely digest food and assist in the assimilation of nutrients.*
Triphala translates humbly into the three fruits, but they are transformed when combined in a specific ratio and extracted with water, quickly becoming far more than the sum of their parts.
The ancient recipe of Triphala has been handed down for thousands of years and remains among the strongest of digestive tonics. It has been shown to be capable of supporting detox, gentle colon cleansing and regularity with reliability and safety.*
Ayurveda had many names for Turmeric including “Gives delight to the heart,” but today it is often called the ultimate superfood. Our Turmeric is grown in India to take full advantage of the historical relationship between the plant and its native soils.*
Researchers have described this plant as a gift from nature supporting the joints, liver, immune system, heart, GI tract and more.*
Ayurvedic science wrote that all things in balance were cyclical in nature: day to night, winter to summer, wakefulness to sleep. It also described a pattern of elimination that is an indicator of balance and wellness. When the cycle occasionally becomes irregular the goal is not to force a pattern but to restore internal balance.
Ginger and Licorice are among the most restorative herbs Ayurveda suggests. Both are found in ComfortCleanseTM and have been used for millennia to promote wellness from stomach to colon by promoting the immune system’s protective barrier and encouraging regular elimination.*

DermaCare purifies the blood by promoting detox to reduce dryness and brighten the skin’s appearance.*

Ayurveda holds that the heart is the center of consciousness, alluding to its physiological relationship to all aspects of emotion, including stress. It noted mental strain creates physical strain and at the intersection of both is the heart.

HeartCare® includes Holy Basil and Arjuna, both considered rejuvenating adaptogens known to promote blood pressure already within normal range and bestow a peaceful mind.*
Ayurveda describes the human body as annamaya, or made of food. Indeed, our food’s life-yielding essence is extracted through our digestive system and ushered into the blood until it becomes our very own being.

Ayurveda and its sister science Yoga rely on their understanding of the body to promote flexibility and motion. Ayurveda identified plants that support these with great success and it is from that selection that we formulated JointCare®.*

This path is the guidance for MenoCare®, which is formulated to reduce hot flashes and night sweats.*

When alcohol is consumed, it is mainly converted into acetaldehyde by the liver. The build up of acetaldehyde in the liver results in the "not so great" next morning.
PartySmart supports the liver and a better morning by speeding up the eradication of the acetaldehyde from the liver.
Four double-blind, randomized human clinical trials have proven the effective benefits of PartySmart.
Ayurveda has spoken for thousands of years about natural, age-related changes occurring in men and discovered a category of plants that provide assistance in the transition.

Ayurveda describes a risk to wellness called the ritu sandhi, the junction between two seasons. The ancient texts detail methods and specific foods, like Horn-of-Plenty and Ginger, to reinforce the intelligence of our immune system and better transition between the seasons.*
This insight is the basis for RespiCare®, which supports normal sinus function, breathability and mucus production.*
Ayurveda teaches the best defense for wellness starts with our thoughts and describes the plants and foods that support peace of mind. These learnings are the foundation for Himalaya’s StressCare®.

The kidneys play a major part in regulating fluid balance but also have a significant role in detox and balancing blood minerals like sodium and calcium. Several techniques and herbal applications, originally outlined by Ayurveda, are only now being understood by science.
Shilajeet and Cyperus are among the ingredients included in UriCare®, which tone and comfort the urinary tract, kidneys and bladder to promote ease of flow.*
Ayurveda teaches that intimacy is a sacred act and describes it as a critical factor for a healthy, emotionally satisfying relationship. The ancient texts suggest the sacredness with which a society approaches intimacy mirrors the health of the society at large.
