H.R. Gaikwad, Chairman & Managing Director, BVG Life Sciences Limited, said, “Ayurveda and Herbal have great potential in sustainable healthcare and in protecting the human body from various modern-day ailments. India already has a rich history of formulations in Ayurveda and herbal. However, these medicines have not been scientifically tested and documented in the format that modern-day medicines are. Hence, even though their results are exceptional, their acceptability is lesser than the modern-day medicines. We are working to achieve a blend of nature and science. We are thankful to the Government of Gujarat for joining hands with us and we assure that together we will contribute significantly to the health of the world.” Read More
