EU Safety Regulations

Syringe Injects liquid in Test TubesWe, as Distributors of Ayurvedic products of Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala, are distributing these products in Europe as Food Supplements and the Oils are meant only for external application. We do not claim that these products can treat, diagnose, prevent or cure any diseases. We do not currently have the clinical research test data to meet the EU specifications for meeting the demands of pharmaceutical drugs or the required 15 years safe usage data in Europe to meet all the specifications of Traditional Herbal medicines. Hence, these products are not meant to be used as medicines.

Moreover, Ayurvedic products when used as medicines to cure patients are to be used/ prescribed  by highly trained health care professionals who in India undergo a minimum of 5- 1/2 years of professional degree course study. Hence, we do not take liability if any user or practitioner uses them as medicines.Kottakkal_EU_Regulations

Our products more than adequately meet the EU regulations for distributing these products as Food Supplements and Externally Applied Oils. This is due to identification and preservation of herbs and due to the manufacturing and QA procedures undertaken at Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala’s cGMP certified manufacturing units in Kerala. The Ayurvedic products from Kerala, the products that we are distributing in the Europe, are primarily composed of various botanical herbs. We are not distributing minerals or metals based Ayurvedic products. We are able to adequately meet the corresponding regulations backed by a large amount of in-house data from research on individual herbal ingredients.

Microbial Stability Testing

All products manufactured by Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala undergo a Microbial Stability test in real time conditions at its Scientific Research division – the CMPR(Center for Medical Plants Research).

Here, Dr. Rema Shree, Deputy Project Director, CMPR, explains it in brief:

Heavy Metal Test

Ayurvedic Lifestyle

People in India and specifically in Kerala have been using most of these Kerala_Ayurveda_Backwatersproducts to supplement their diet for keeping healthy for centuries. Even though a properly balanced diet can adequately take care of the nutrients contained in these products, still with the current lifestyle and quality of foods available, these products when taken regularly and under guidance of knowledgeable practitioners can help one maintain health very well.

Ayurveda prescribes Dinacarya, or daily activities for keeping healthy. In addition to a balanced diet, taking these Ayurvedic products as per one’s Ayurvedic constitution (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and massaging one’s body with oils (abhyanga) is highly recommended. Similarly we hope that these products will help you follow the Ayurvedic lifestyle and live on for at least 100 years!

Sarve Sukhina Bhavantu!
