The company also has a drug-testing laboratory to ensure that the quality of products is consumable for all. This laboratory is approved by the NABL Ministry of AYUSH. It also has a food testing laboratory, which is soon to be approved by FICCI. With the AYUSH premium mark for more than 300 products, the company has certifications for the outstanding quality of the products. 

Since most of these products are not approved as medicines in other countries of the world, they are sold as nutraceuticals (or nutritional supplements).
