AyurSlim

Weight management

What it does:

Himalaya's AyurSlim is a clinically proven, safe and natural Ayurvedic slimming solution that has been developed after extensive research. AyurSlim has a favorable effect on weight reduction and lipid profile.

AyurSlim contains Garcinia which limits fat production in the body and aids in body weight reduction. Other essential ingredients are Gymnema, which reduces the craving for sweets and Indian Bdellium, which reduces excess cholesterol and triglyceride levels. This combination of natural herbs curbs food craving and controls the appetite which results in the consumption of fewer calories and the optimal utilization of nutrients.

Key ingredients:

  • Garcinia is known to slow down the body's ability to store fat, potentially enabling more fat from foods to pass through the body without being stored. It also stops fat production.

  • Indian Bdellium has strong purifying and rejuvenating properties. It strengthens immunity and regulates the body's lipid level. The herb is also known to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

  • Gymnema leaves contain ingredients that reduce the intestinal absorption of glucose, stimulate the pancreas to increase insulin production and decrease sugar cravings. It also neutralizes any excess sugar present in the body.
  • Chebulic Myrobalan purges impurities and detoxifies the body. It has a number of medicinal benefits, including improving bowel movements.
  • Fenugreek seeds function as an appetite suppressant and give a feeling of satiety more quickly.

Directions for use:

The recommended dosage is two capsules twice a day, after meals.

AyurSlim should be taken in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet and half an hour of exercise on a daily basis. While you should start seeing results after four to six weeks, allow at least three months for complete results. Along with AyurSlim, maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet to achieve optimal results.

A clinical study was conducted at the Institute of Postgraduate Ayurved Education & Research, Kolkata, India, to evaluate the efficacy of AyurSlim in reducing obesity using the dosage of two capsules twice daily for six months. 

Thirty-two male and female obese patients, who were above 20% of their desirable body weight in the age group of 20-45 years, participated in the study. For a period of over six months, the patients were checked for body weight, body mass index, lipid profile and skin fold thickness. 

Results showed that AyurSlim was clinically effective in weight reduction in all the patients. In addition, their lipid profile showed a statistical reduction as well. No side effects were reported.

Tagara


Tagara
Relaxes the mind, promotes sleep
In Ayurvedic medicine, Tagara (Indian Valerian/Valeriana wallichi ) is recommended for insomnia, stimulating the nervous system, reducing spasms and calming anxiety. Records show that the herb has been medicinally used in the 16th century in India to treat nervousness, trembling, delirium tremens (acute delirium), headaches and heart palpitations.

In recent times, the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has listed Tagara in their ‘Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS)’ list, while the German Commission E has approved its use as a mild sedative. Tagara is popular in North America, Europe and Japan and is widely used to treat insomnia and anxiety.

Tagara is a perennial, herbaceous plant, indigenous to India, and is found in the temperate Himalayan region.

Active constituents:
The roots and rhizomes are highly aromatic and contain valepotriates and essential oils. In addition, sesquiterpenoids, monoterpenoids, lignans and alkaloids with pharmacological properties have been found in Tagara. Hesperidin and methylapigenin present in Tagara are found to have sedative and sleep enhancing properties. Valerenic acid present in the herb has been shown to inhibit the enzyme-induced breakdown of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the brain's chief inhibitory neurotransmitter. This action results in sedation.
Functions:
Insomnia: The sedative action of Tagara mildly depresses the central nervous system, which is beneficial in sleep disorders like insomnia.Six-methylapigenin, which is an active compound of Tagara, acts as a benzodiazepine-binding site (BDZ-bs) ligand. This action enhances the inhibitory effects of GABA, leading to the complete blockage of the ongoing nerve impulse and sedation.

Nervine disorders: Tagara maintains normal nervine function and is also used in treating anxiety and tremors. It relieves nervous irritation and agitation. In studies, extracts of Tagaramarkedly attenuated cerebral injury in terms of decreased brain infarct (an area of dead tissue due to lack of oxygen) size, and an increase in short-term memory and motor coordination.

Antidepressant and anxiolytic action: Tagara extract is useful in the treatment of human stress-related disorders. It significantly reduces stress and anxiety, relieves depression, and enhances the willingness to adjust without altering memory, concentration or attention.

About Himalaya


Every year, 200 million Himalaya products enter the homes of consumers around the world. With a range of over 300 healthcare and personal care products including brands like Liv.52, Cystone, and Bonnisan, we touch the lives of millions of customers worldwide, giving them products that help them lead healthier, enriched lives.

Himalaya's story began way back in 1930. A curious young man riding through the forests of Burma saw restless elephants being fed the root of a plant, Rauwolfia serpentina, which helped pacify them. Fascinated by the plant's effect on elephants, this young man, Mr. M. Manal, the founder of Himalaya, wanted to scientifically test the herb's properties.

With no money and only a pocketful of dreams, he pawned his mother's jewelry to buy a hand-operated tableting machine. The years that followed were a time of endurance and a test of the young man's patience, strength and passion. He spent his days learning about herbs from neighborhood healers and his nights working on the machine to make a few hundred tablets. His vision was to 'bring the traditional Indian science of Ayurveda to society in a contemporary form'.

In a time when herbal products were regarded with scepticism, our founder's belief in the healing power of herbs was unwavering. He felt that if people were offered safe and effective herbal medicines, they would come to accept them as part of their healthcare routine. He believed that herbal medicines could and should be evaluated on the same quality and efficacy parameters as conventional medicine. This was possible through empirical research. Once scientific research proved that herbal products worked, even doctors could be won over. This was a big dream with big challenges. But he persevered on despite the obstacles.

After four years of researching the herb Rauwolfia serpentina, Serpina®, the world's first natural antihypertensive drug was launched in 1934.

The discovery set the future course for Himalaya. It taught us the value of scientific research. It also taught us the importance of patience, passion and perseverance. We have since focused on converting Ayurveda's herbal tradition into a range of proprietary formulations dedicated to healthy living and longevity.

With a history spanning eight decades in the area of herbal research, Himalaya shares a close relationship with nature. We are in the business of not only promoting good health but also safeguarding the health of our planet. Ever since our inception, we have taken great care to protect biodiversity, collect herbs in a sustainable way and promote good agricultural practices.

In 1955, Himalaya introduced Liv. 52, a liver formulation that ensures optimum liver function. The product soon became our flagship brand anda top selling herbal medicine. Other brands soon followed including Cystone, Bonnisan and Rumalaya forte, products that went on to become household names.

In 1999, Himalaya entered the personal care segment under the brand name 'Ayurvedic Concepts'.This was unchartered territory which brought with it new challenges and new opportunities for learning. People around the world were waking up to the benefits of herbal and natural products for their personal care needs. Himalaya had close to seven decades of research experience in herbal medicine and this legacy had helped us understand the world of herbs. The prospect of entering the personal care space was therefore exciting. We wanted to give customers herbal personal care products that were mild, gentle, hard-working and steeped in science! Our guiding philosophy was to develop a range of personal care products rooted in Ayurveda and backed by research, a mainstay of the Himalaya brand. By remaining true to our research ethic, we built credibility for our range of herbal personal care products and gained the trust of our customers. A year later, we expanded our portfolio to include animal health products with the objective of caring for the health and well-being of animals.

With our expanding range of products and growth in international markets, Himalaya underwent a rebranding where the entire range was brought under a single umbrella- Himalaya Herbal Healthcare. With the present portfolio of pharmaceuticals, personal care, baby care, well-being and animal health products, Himalaya has evolved into a 'head-to-heel' herbal wellness company.

After close to 80 years, we remain committed to enriching the lives of people who use our products. Himalaya's therapeutic products have brought relief to people suffering from ailments like liver disorders, diabetes to kidney stones and joint disabilities. Our personal care range captures the best in nature and science, giving our customers products that are gentle, effective and safe for long-term use. Our vision is to offer wellness in every home and for the whole family through our herbal healthcare and personal care products.

Today, the Himalaya brand is synonymous with safe and efficacious herbal products. Starting off operations in Dehradun way back in the 1930s, the company later spread its wings to Mumbai and across the country. In 1975, the company set up an advanced manufacturing facility in Makali, Bangalore, India. In 1991, the company relocated its R and D facility to Bangalore.

We operate in over 90 countries, our products are prescribed by 400,000 doctors worldwide, and millions of customers trust us for their health and personal care needs. Himalaya Global Holdings Ltd. (HGH) is the global headquarters of all Himalaya subsidiaries.
