Himalaya Herbal Healthcare
"Himalaya's 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 plant's effect on elephants, this young man, Mr. M. Manal, the founder of Himalaya, wanted to scientifically test the herb's properties.... In 1999, Himalaya entered the personal care segment under the brand name 'Ayurvedic Concepts'.... "Today, the Himalaya brand is synonymous with safe and efficacious herbal products. We operate in over 80 countries, our products are prescribed by 400,000 doctors worldwide, and millions of customers trust us for their health and personal care needs."
