QUALITY OF PLANET AYURVEDA:
When buying our ayurvedic products, you can count on these quality standards:
We use solely 100% vegetarian capsule shells made from hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, commonly found in plants, and meet all the requirements of current FCC (Food Chemical Codex) and USP standards. We do not hard gelatin which is low in cost and is made from chemicals, cow cartilage and pig intestines.
In our 100% natural herbal supplements we use solely standardised extracts, not just plain extracts.
There are 3 types of herbal extacts:
- Pure herbal powder (part of pland in powder form).
- Herbal extract (extract of plant, content of concrete active constituent in extract is not know).
- Standardised herbal extract – this type of extract is prepared and tested for its percentage of active constituents.
Generally is concentration level very high, for example we use 100 kg of herb powder for 10 kg of standardised extract (for example for Ashwagandha capsules). Then extract is tested for presence of active constituent (in Ashwagandha we test content of Withanolides). If it meets the criteria only then it get approved for use, otherwise it got rejected and marked to be used as just plain herb extract.

Our vegetarian capsules contain 500 mg of standardised herbal extract, while many other manufacturers are filling 250 mg herbal extracts or raw herb powder.
Our products are 100% natural. So many people fill 250 mg herbal extracts and the rest of the 500 mg capsule shell is filled with raw herb powder or fillers, chemicals, or even flour etc. just to cut costs. We fill only 500 mg standardized extracts without any preservatives or fillers or chemicals.
