Export Of Ayurvedic Medicines Affected Due To High Heavy Metal Content

The export of Ayurvedic medicines from India has suffered a set back following the testing by the Canadian Government that has revealed alarmingly high levels of heavy metals in the exported traditional medicinal preparations. // More than 18 different Ayurvedic medicines have been tested by the Health Canada, a part of the Canadian government’s health department.

Companies like Dabur and Zandu are also under trouble as some of their products have been found to contain high levels of heavy metals.

In accordance with the Drugs and Cosmetic Rules 1954, all Indian medicines exported should clearly indicate the contents in the display label. Furthermore, medicinal preparations containing substances such as mercury, arsenic, lead should contain a warning statement regarding the usage as per Rule 161.

Of all the products tested, only four products were found to carry such a warning. Despite the presence of lead and arsenic in a branded Ayurvedic medicine, the presence of only mercury was indicated in the label. Water and soil pollution has been accounted for this high heavy metal content.
