We cannot get everything from the food we eat. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of minerals, amino acids, vitamins are not sufficient from the vegetables, protein and cooked food we consume each and everyday. We require certain amount of minerals and other food supplements including Chinese, Ayurvedic and other herbal supplements.
Ayurvedic food supplement products are currently getting more popular worldwide - particularly in the USA . We cannot say Ayurvedic supplements are medicine or a drug. Ayurvedic supplements are described as food, natural nutritional herbal supplements. These supplements can be used to lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety and depression. Other benefits include help with weight loss, joint pain, arthritis, menopause and many other health problems, which could be prevented, treated and cured with supplements. For centuries, people in India have been using Ayurvedic herbs. As many as 80% of people in India depend on Ayurvedic home remedies. Many health problems can be related to a deficiency of minerals, including B Vitamins, C Vitamins, D Vitamins etc.
We definitely need not only Ayurvedic herbal products as food supplements, we do require other minerals, B and C Vitamins and Amino Acids
The Demand of Ayurvedic supplements are growing in India, South East Asia, Europe and North America. The total Domestic Market and export of Ayurvedic supplements products could be over 50 Billion Dollars which is more than the total market of Yoga, which is 25 Billion. Yoga is a part of Ayurveda.
Most of the Ayurvedic products are being produced by Ram Devji, Himalaya, Dabur, Baidayanath, Organic India and many other. Ayurvedic supplements like Ashwagandha, Turmeric (Curcumin), Moringa ( Sajina), Bitter Mellon, Vasak, Neem, Guduchi, Tulsi, Jatamansi ( Valerian), Amla, Triphala, Gokshura, ( Tribulas), Senna, Shilajeet and hundred other Ayurvedic herbal products have a large demand in USA market like in GNC, Whole Food, Trader's Joe, Walmart, Costco, Amazon, drugs store to supermarkets.
As an example, Psyllium (Isabgul) has a 5 billion dollar worldwide business including Proctor & Gamble's Metamucil (which works as a mild laxative). For hundreds of years, people in India have been using a home remedy, like Triphala as another non-toxic laxative of Ayurvedic herbal product.
As demand of Ayurvedic medicine is rapidly growing, the Government of India has a ministry for Ayurveda, called AYUSH which is engaged in promoting the education of Ayurvedic medicine, promotion of ayurvedic products in domestic and export market on a huge scale.
