About Divya Ayurveda Products (Swami Ramdev Patanjali Yoga)
Divya Yog Mandir (Trust), started the
“Brahamkalp Chikitsalaya” at Kripalu Bagh Ashram, Kankhal in 1995 where
patients suffering from various diseases were cured using Ayurvedic treatments
and the practice of Yoga. In pursuit of optimum results, need was felt to
provide quality Ayurvedic products to the patients, as results of Ayurvedic
treatments are directly proportional to the quality of preparations. Hence a
small scale manufacturing unit of Ayurvedic products was established on the
campus of the Kripalu Bagh Ashram, Kankhal. This was the beginning of Divya
Aushadhi Nirmanshala (Divya Ayurveda Facility), which was based completely on
Divya Ayurveda has had the exalted vision bringing
Ayurveda to global society in a contemporary form and to unravel the mystery
behind this hallowed and revered Indian system of health by a thorough
exploration and selection of indigenous herbs and ancient Ayurvedic literatures.
Then by subjecting these formulations to modern pharmacological and
toxicological safety tests, and performing further clinical trials to create
new treatments and therapies.
Divya Ayurveda hopes that treatment be available
to the common man at the minimum price. In the years 2002-03, they modernized
the pharmacy, and added a new expanded unit well equipped with machines for
large scale production.
A computer controlled herbal extraction plant
commissioned in the facility is used for extracting from the various parts of
the plant like the leaves, roots, fruit etc. The salient feature of this facility
is the production of ayurvedic products using latest SCADA technology under
controlled environmental conditions of temperature and pressure. Exact concentrations
are finalized by vacuum drying which preserves the maximum valued contents of
While maintaining production of the finest grade
extracts, this method utilizes the cost-efficiency of bulk production. This
unit has the capacity to process 10,000 kgs. of raw herbs at once. The desired
fluid component is added to this extract in the process of making the treatments.
Divya Ayurveda uses an automatic high speed
spray drier unit for the manufacturing processes, a fluid wed processor for
quick liquification, tablet compressing device with the capacity for preparing
one hundred thousand tablets per hour, a high speed auto-coater for coating the
tablets, in addition to a high speed mixer-grinder, fluid wed driers and
cleaning, and a crossing & pulverizing units.
In the packing section of Divya Ayurveda
computer controlled packing equipment is being used, having the capacity of 300
volts per minute, with automatic blister packing machines. A utility center has
been set up in this production unit which has two 500 KVA generators, softners
& cooling towers including boilers & air compressors having the
capacity to produce 300 tons of steam.
As a result of this Divya Ayurveda has become
the first ayurvedic treatment manufacturing unit of Uttarakhand to get ISO-9001
and WHO-GMP certifications. In the facility, international standards like Good
Manufacturing Practices(GMP), Good Packaging Practices(GPP), Good Agricultural
Practices(GAP) and Good Harvesting Practices(GHP) are being strictly followed.
Divya Ayurveda’s R & D department is
dedicated to product development, quality control and standardization. Divya Ayurveda
has begun demanding work and initiated a revolutionary change by making three
stage standardization & clinical testing the standard in the field of the
manufacturing of ayurvedic treatments:
1. Quality Control & Quality Assessment.
2. Toxicological Study-Animal Trial.
3. Clinical Trial.
For Quality Control and Quality Testing the following three steps are followed :
1. For Raw Material
2. For extracts/ Bhasmas at different stages
3. For final product
1. Quality Control and Quality Testing for Raw
Material: The raw material to be used in production of ayurvedic products are
used only after they have been tested for their purity. Quality control of the
raw material to be used for preparation of the products is a difficult task, as
there are many varieties of the herbs. Much depends on their place of
procurement and the season in which they have been collected. To accomplish a
thorough review that is both appropriate and effective, an herb research
department has been established in which efficient, trained scientists and
research personnel from the fields of botany, pharmacology, chemistry,
microbiology & ayurvedic products have been employed.
In this Department standards relating to botanical & mineral
identification, adulteration, the knowledge about the mixture of the
representative ingredients and appropriate proportions for the manufacturing of
the products is being adopted, so that the quality of products in every batch
1. Determination of foreign matter or adulterants
2. Morphological Study
4. Solubility in different solvents like water, alcohol, ether etc.
5. Ash value
6. Moisture content
7. Oil contents
8. Bulk density of raw material
9. Comparative Chromatographic Study by TLC & HPTLC
10. ORD-Optical Rotary Diahroism-Polarography
11. X-Ray Photo Electron Spectroscopy
12. U.V. Photo Electron Spectroscopy
To carry out these tasks a laboratory (QA &
QC Laboratories) has been constructed which uses modern equipment like ovens, microwave
ovens, moisture balance, bulk density apparati, microscopes, computerised microscopes,
polarimeter, extraction apparati, Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC), High Profile
Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC). At present Botany, Chemistry and
Microbiology departments are working in these laboratories.
2. Quality Control and Quality testing for
Extracts/ Bhasmas at different stages: For extraction in the production unit
the most modern SCADA controlled extraction unit is being used. For properly
maintaining quality control of the various extracts at different stages of
extraction, the following standards are strictly followed:
1. Measurement of the Solid Content
2. Measurement of Ph value
3. Study of the comparative TLC and HPTLC tests
4. Chemical analysis
5. Study of the science of metal formation, etc.
3. Quality Control and Quality
testing for final products: Various processes are followed for quality control
and standardization of the final products like Choorna, Vati, Bhasm etc.
1. Identity Test
Quantity of Medicine
Spectrum of Medicine
X-ray diffraction of medicine
TLC & HPTLC
2. Measurement of set Physical parameters
Solubility in different solvents like water, alcohol, either etc.
4. Microbiological Test
In this way, by giving a new form to the
ayurvedic products, a new step has been initiated in the direction of quality
control and standardization, by which ayurveda is clearly bound to make a mark
on the world. This will not be an effort only for the benefit of India but for
whole world and in the time to come it will help make the medical treatment
available for everyone. As the ancient sages were well versed with the knowledge
of ayurveda and there has been refinement of the knowledge from time to time by
the learned in the field, in the same way Divya Ayurveda is trying to bring refinement
to the knowledge of ayurveda. At Divya Ayurveda the formulations of rasrasayan
vati, gugullu, choorna, avaleha, ghansatva, kwath, ghrita, taila, mandoor,
lauh, parpati, pishti, aasav, arishta etc. are pure, of high quality and are
prepared strictly according to the classical treatise. Divya Ayurveda puts in all
the efforts to make the treatments pure and rich in quality.
