Himalayas 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 plants effect on elephants, this young man, Mr. M. Manal, the founder of Himalaya, wanted to scientifically test the herbs properties. With a history spanning eight decades in the area of herbal research, Himalaya shares a close relationship with nature. They are in the business of not only promoting good health but also safeguarding the health of planet. Ever since inception, they have taken great care to protect biodiversity, collect herbs in a sustainable way and promote good agricultural practices.
