Herbal Research Division
To establish Ayurveda and strengthen related research at International level
Under the supervision of Acharya Balkrishna Jee, Patanjali Herbal Research Department was initiated to ensure all the medicinal plants used in different traditional medicinal systems across the globe are being gathered and publish into a book. The Scientists at Herbal Research Department started publishing books on flora and medicinal flora of different areas of India. The team is also working on vegetation survey in different regions of India.
