These are the most popular herbal formulas among our healthy conscious audience, for a range of reasons from inflammatory support, to detoxification, to stress relief. Beloved in ancient Ayurveda, their efficacy is continuously reinforced by modern science. ORGANIC INDIA favorites feature herbs and spices that make a palpable difference in day-to-day wellbeing and support the body in its daily functions so you can operate at your best. 

Herbs and spices have been profound health allies since the dawn of humanity, and their significance has not faltered in the slightest. If anything, they’ve become even more crucial with the demands of modern society and the many stresses it can bring. Herbal remedies give people the agency to take their health into their own hands, while supporting and protecting their body’s innate abilities — rather than prematurely jumping to pharmaceutical intervention. Having these herbs, spices and blends in your cabinet keeps you pulse to pulse with the earth and the deep nurturing power it provides. 

Top 7 ORGANIC INDIA Favorites

These formulas are the perfect compliments to a healthy lifestyle, and provide that extra boost of physical, mental and spiritual support to take on any day with ease. Here are our ORGANIC INDIA favorites, or best sellers, chosen by our customers who come back to these herbs and spices again and again for their undeniable whole body health benefits (listed in no particular order): 

1. Turmeric Formula

Let’s start with a spice that you probably already know and love: Turmeric! Turmeric is that golden root that is known to help support a healthy inflammatory response, blood sugar metabolism, joint mobility, and liver and heart function. This formula concentrates the highest quality turmeric with curcumin and Trikatu for bioavailability and maximum absorption. Trikatu is a classic Ayurvedic formula of ginger, black pepper and long pepper that stokes the digestive fire. 

What makes our turmeric special? We source whole Organic, Non-GMO Turmeric root and grind it in our facility to assure the highest quality and eliminate the risk of adulteration. Your senses can tell the difference with the vivid color and distinct aroma of the herb⁠—the purity and quality is evident.

2. Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is exalted in Ayurveda for its ability to relieve stress while supporting endurance, stamina, and energy levels. Though traditionally associated with men’s health, it has just as many health applications for women for whole body-mind renewal. In fact, it is known as both a rasayana, or rejuvenator, as well as an adaptogen that brings mental, physical and spiritual harmony. 

What makes our Ashwagandha special? ORGANIC INDIA’s Ashwagandha is cultivated in Bundelkhand, India, an area known for producing the highest quality available. We also harvest only the most mature, thickest roots for greatest benefit and potency. And, of course, as with all our products, always organic, non-GMO, and cultivated using regenerative agriculture on small family-owned farms.

3. Triphala

Triphala is the most tried and true Ayurvedic formula, comprised of three fruits, namely amla, haritaki and bibhitaki. This ancient herbal remedy detoxifies and cleanses the body, while supporting the entire gastrointestinal tract. The amazing thing about Triphala is that, while it cleanses and purifies, it does not deplete the body of nutrients as many digestive purgatives do. Instead, it simultaneously nourishes the body, restoring essential vitamins, minerals and fluids.

What makes our Triphala special? With the help of the government of India, we have worked to certify half a million acres of forest land as organic, which allows for pure, traditional wildcrafting methods without overharvesting or using chemicals and pesticides. Also, we remove the seeds from the fruits, which is uncommon in other brands’ Triphala supplements, as the seeds are considered “toxic” in Ayurveda (not to be confused with poisonous). This ensures the purest, most beneficial expression of Triphala.

4. Liver Kidney

Liver Kidney is a classic Ayurvedic remedy for detoxifying the body and supporting liver and kidney health. This formula features three powerful herbs: Bhumyamalaki for liver support, Katuki for kidney support, and Punarnava for whole body rejuvenation. The synergistic blend works to eliminate toxins, cleanse the body and regulate fat metabolism. 

What makes our Liver Kidney special? The liver and kidneys work closely together to eliminate toxins from the body. Many detox supplements on the market are for liver-only, which does not provide full detox support; and in the case of milk thistle there may even be some contraindications that people are increasingly wary of. Our formula specifically contains a tried and true blend of organic, non-GMO herbs that gently work in conjunction to support and deep cleanse both the liver and kidneys.

5. Moringa

Moringa is a green superfood that is replete with essential nutrients like Vitamin C, iron, calcium, plant protein, and potassium. It is an excellent supplement for immune support and healthy metabolism, and can be found in capsules, teas, and powders for versatility. It is also an ideal supplement for vegans and vegetarians, as it contains all nine essential amino acids. In fact, Moringa is considered one of the most complete, nutrient-dense plants on earth.

What makes our Moringa special? ORGANIC INDIA Moringa is grown on small family-owned farms in India, where there are fair practices and equitable wages for all. We grow our Organic, Non-GMO herbs by way of regenerative agriculture, which not only sustains but improves the soil. Our Moringa powders, supplements and teas are then produced and packaged in our environmentally-friendly, LEED Platinum-certified facility.

6. Ceylon Cinnamon

Cinnamon is more than a finishing touch to desserts, it’s actually a superfood known to support healthy blood sugar levels and digestion. Ceylon cinnamon supplements are one of the ORGANIC INDIA favorites, and are categorically on the rise as blood sugar regulation becomes more important to the population. Studies have shown its efficacy in regulating healthy inflammatory function, insulin response and glucose metabolism. 

What makes our cinnamon special? We source whole Organic, Non-GMO ceylon cinnamon bark and grind it in our facility to assure the highest quality. Also, ceylon cinnamon is sweeter, gentler and more delicate than generic supermarket cinnamon (cassia cinnamon), making it more suitable for long term use. Curious? Feel free to open our easy to pull-apart capsules and see firsthand the beautiful aroma, vibrant color and delicious flavor — add to lattes, smoothies, baked goods and enjoy!

7. Tulsi

Last but not least on our list of best sellers is Tulsi. Tulsi, or Holy Basil, is known as the Queen of Herbs, for good reason. It is a potent adaptogen that balances the body and uplifts the mind, while regulating a healthy stress response. This special herb is also known to support immunity and the body’s natural detoxification process. No wonder it is considered the #1 herb of the Yogic, Ayurvedic, and Puranic traditions.

What makes our Tulsi special? We have the first Tulsi supplement in the world to be Fairtrade Certified in alignment with our deep commitment to fair practices. Plus, our signature Tulsi is a proprietary organic blend of Krishna, Rama, and Vana Tulsi varieties, providing the deepest possible stress relieving and detoxifying benefits.
