Side effects relating to some varieties of the Aristolochia species under certain conditions have been documented since the early 1990's. Herbs containing these compounds are primarily used in China and have been banned in many countries of the world, including the United States.
We’d like to assure you: ORGANIC INDIA does not use any of the Aristolochia species of herbs, or herbs containing aristolochic acid, in any of our products.
All of our products are certified Kosher except for Chyawanprash. The ghee used in Chyawanprash comes from a farm that is not certified Kosher.

We provide our farmers and their families with health care, education and a sustainable method of agriculture. Please take the time to read about our story.
