Amway India, the country’s largest FMCG Direct Selling Company, recently conducted a series of seminars addressed by experts with the aim of raising awareness of healthcare through Indian traditional wisdom on herbs and modern research. The company invited renowned Ayurvedic expert –Dr. GauharVatsyayan in13 markets across the country including Lucknow, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Pune, to share valuable insights on the significance and role of Indian traditional herbs for maintaining optimal health.
The seminars began with Dr. Vatsyayan providing an overview of the benefits of herbs in maintaining good health throughout one’s lifespan. He shared his viewson the traditional Indian herbs such as Ashwagandha, Tulsi, Brahmi and TriphalaAmalaki, Vibhatakiand Haritaki,among others, that are widely used to address day-to-day physiological challenges owing to radical changes in lifestyle and eating habits. He also highlighted some of the commonly known challenges and myths surrounding herbal products and shared insightful daily healthcare tips.
“Herbal solutions help us support and maintain good health and can be consumed by physically fit people just as well” said Dr. Vatsyayan while speaking at the seminar. He further added, “Hypothesis suggest that usage of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) constituents lead to an increased incidence of respective intolerance and allergy which is why while choosing herbal products or supplements, one should look at the ingredients and their sources. Additionally, complete extraction of the active ingredient is very crucial while formulating herbal products. Only a few companies maintain transparency about the ingredients and their sourcing. The consumers need to be aware about all these aspects while consuming herbal products.”
