On a visit to Burma, Himalaya's founder, Mr. M. Manal, saw restless elephants being fed a root to pacify them. The plant from which this root was taken is Rauwolfia serpentina. Fascinated by the plant's effect on elephants, he had it scientifically evaluated. After extensive research, Serpina®, the world's first anti-hypertensive drug, was launched in 1934. This legacy of researching nature forms the foundation of Himalaya's operations. Himalaya uses the tools of modern science to create pharmaceutical-grade ayurvedic products. Since its inception, the company has focused on developing safe, natural and innovative remedies that will help people lead richer, healthier lives. Our most popular Himalaya Herbal Healthcare products include Himalaya Herbal Healthcare Organic Triphala, Himalaya Herbal Healthcare Turmeric and Himalaya Herbal Healthcare Guggul.
