In teas and candies all over the world, Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra ) has been enjoyed for generations. Ancient people would chew the root to freshen their breath. To others it's a spice for savory foods, or even a soft drink. It's also one of the world's most widely researched herbs, east and west, for support of normal digestive function.
In one published study, researchers at the Department of Experimental Pharmacology, University of Naples, Italy named Licorice as one digestive herb that "has been used extensively and [had its] clinical efficacy documented." They also suggested Licorice as a dietary adjunct to existing therapies. Phytother Res. 2000 Dec;14(8):581-91
- Scientists at the Laboratory of Natural Medicinal Materials, Tokyo, Japan point out that Licorice has been used since ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian times, and in traditional Chinese medicine, as one of their most frequently used plants. In Japan, the oldest specimen of Licorice introduced from China in the 8th Century still exists in the Imperial Storehouse in Shosoin. Yakugaku Zasshi. 2000 Oct;120(10):849-62
- The principle constituent of Licorice (and the component that gives Licorice its characteristically sweet taste) is called glycyrrhizin. Not only is Licorice supportive of normal digestion, and the glycyrrhizin it contains also supports normally functioning joints and the body's own natural response to inflammation.

The many different herbs used in Himalaya Herbal Healthcare's scientific product line are also used in India's ancient, traditional system of medicine, Ayurveda.
The word Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit root words ayur (meaning "life") and veda (meaning "to know"). Literally, Ayurveda means "the science of life." It is a system of medicine dating back over 4,000 years.
Ayurveda had a profound, far-reaching influence on Traditional Chinese Medicine and the healthcare systems of many other countries and cultures. Ayurveda believes that five great elements make up the universe and the human body: earth, water, fire, air and space.
It also believes that humans possess a unique constellation of body types or doshas: vata (wind/spirit/air), pitta (bile), and kapha (phlegm). Each represents a divine force, and Ayurveda seeks to bring them into balance through proper diet, herbal treatment and spiritual practice.
Since Himalaya Herbal Healthcare formulas are very science-based and appropriate for all body types ("tri-doshic" or "non-dosha- specific"), and since their formulas require no Ayurvedic knowledge to be used successfully, they do not consider themselves to be "an Ayurvedic line" in the classic sense of the word.
