Journal of the American Medical Association Articles on Ayurvedic Supplements An article appeared in the August 27, 2008 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association, view it here. In this article both US and Indian made Ayurvedic herbal supplements were tested for heavy metals. Savesta products were not among those published as having any contamination.

An earlier article appeared in the December 15, 2004 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association,, about a study conducted by the Harvard Medical School on 70 Ayurvedic herbal supplements manufactured and imported directly from India and Pakistan. In the study, 14 products or 20% were found to have levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic well beyond the Environmental Protection Agency’s standards for toxicity. Savesta (then known as Ayurceutics) products were not included in this study.

Testing, Testing and More Testing

Because we want to produce extracts with high levels of the desired compounds such as boswellic acids in Boswellia and tannins in Triphala, we carefully screen all raw herbs for these good compounds as well as screen for both heavy metal and pesticide contamination. Additional testing is conducted on the finished extracts, then finished encapsulated products are tested. Finally our testing is validated by independent laboratory tests. Please contact us directly if you would like to see these excellent test results yourself.

High International Standards for Herb Extract Manufacturing

Every aspect of production is carefully supervised and our products are rigorously tested to insure that levels of heavy metals strictly comply with all GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) guidelines. The test results are then verified by independent laboratories. The herb extracts are packed in clean rooms into double lined HDPE drums and shipped to our headquarters in Los Angeles. Encapsulation and bottle filling are done here in the U.S. at top-rated, GMP facilities.
