In Ayurveda, research means something different from what it means in the context of allopathic medicine. Research is literally re-searching in the context of Ayurveda. Searching and discovering what has been forgotten. Research is very much linked with Ayurvedic practice and cannot be a separate activity. A physician has to be a researcher because every patient that comes to him is an opportunity for research and discovery of a new approach to treatment.
At Nutriley a dedicated team of researchers and quality experts are engaged in research and development of new formulations and standardization of drugs. We also have number of Institutional – Collaborations with Pharmacy Colleges, Medical & Ayurvedic Institutions for various basic research.
Combining the strengths of the knowledge base of traditional systems such as Ayurveda with the dramatic power of combinatorial sciences and high throughput screening helps in the generation of structure-activity libraries. Ayurvedic knowledge and experiential database can provide new functional leads to reduce time, money and toxicity – the three main hurdles in the drug development.
A review of some exemplary evidence-based researches and approaches has now resulted in wider acceptance of Ayurvedic medicines. In the new era of drug development based on natural products, there can be two paths. One the traditional methods of drug discovery based on active principles and hit and trial method, and the another is intentional based on sound understanding of the paradigm of natural products action in the body based on Ayurvedic principles. The latter one has got greater chances of success and also has lesser time bar for development as it is based on the clinical activity.
