The Beginnings . . . the making of an herbal leader.
Himalaya Drug Company was founded in 1930 by Mr. M. Manal with a
clear vision to bring Ayurveda to society in a contemporary form and to
unravel the mystery behind the 5,000 year old system of medicine.
This included referring to ancient Ayurvedic texts, selecting
indigenous herbs and subjecting the formulations to modern
toxicological and safety tests to create new drugs and therapies.
Seventy five years ago, on a visit to Burma , Mr. Manal saw restless
elephants being fed with a root to pacify them. The plant from which
this was taken is Rauwolfia serpentina. Fascinated by the plant's effect on
elephants, he had it scientifically evaluated. After extensive
research, Serpina â , the world's first anti-hypertensive drug, was launched in 1934.
The legacy of researching nature forms the foundation of Himalaya 's
operations. Himalaya has pioneered the use of modern science to
rediscover and validate Ayurveda secrets. Cutting edge technology is employed 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. Today, Himalaya products have been endorsed by over 200,000 doctors
around the globe and consumers in over 60 countries rely on Himalaya
for their health and personal care needs.

Himalaya brand has much in common with the mountain range from
which it draws its name. For centuries, the Himalayas have been an icon
of aspiration, of man's quest to unlock Nature's secrets. They
represent purity and lofty ideals. The fact that the Himalayas are the
source of many of the herbs that are used in our products, makes our
