Taking organic foods and supplements that are free of chemicals is a natural and healthy way to guard our bodies from allergies or ailments that may arise from non-natural additives.

Organic India was formed in the 1990s by a group of people who wanted to set up a sustainable business model to support the livelihood of farmers in India. It wanted to achieve this goal through training and education - enabling self-sufficiency and skills that can be passed on to future generations.

The herbal formulas are also kept as close to their original form as possible.

The herbs are grown organically, harvested by hand and locally processed.

They are dehydrated in a dry, sterile environment to prevent phytochemical breakdown before being coarsely ground at low temperatures to preserve the matrix of the bioactive molecules.

The ingredients are then put into vegetarian capsules that are free of toxic chemicals, solvents or alcohol - resulting in a high quality, effective, pure and natural product.

The farmers and tribal wild-crafters who work with Organic India learn organic and biodynamic agricultural practices.
