Fenugreek (Scientific Name: Trigonella foenum-gracum) seeds have stood the test of time as a medicinal plant. Fenugreek is an integral part of many traditional healing systems. The multiple medicinal benefits of Fenugreek seeds have led to a focus on it as a nutritional supplement.

We, at Indus Biotech, have pioneered research on Fenugreek seeds. Our R&D has led to the discovery of many bioactive molecules in Fenugreek seeds. Our science has harnessed the potential of these molecules for promising healthcare applications.

Cinnamon (Scientific Name: Cinnamomum zeylanicum) bark is a traditional treatment for inflammation, pain, fever and arthritis. Cinnamon bark also boosts immunity.

Our research on Cinnamon bark has led to the identification of specific polyphenols effective against chronic immune and infectious conditions including allergic rhinitis.

Gotu Kola (Scientific Name: Centella asiatica) leaves are part of Asian and African healing systems. The medicinal properties of Gotu Kola are derived from constituents called Triterpenes.

With our platform technology we have identified and characterized our patented composition of Triterpene molecules.

We have developed patented standardized products from fenugreek seeds containing:
Hydroxyisolueicne
(a major amino acid)
Trigonelline
(a major alkaloid)
Oligosaccharide/
Galactomannan/
Soluble Fibers
Glycosides and
Furostenol Saponins
Type A Proanthocyanidin Polyphenol
Asiaticoside
Madecassoside
