vpk Dosha Symbol
Look for this vpk dosha guide on each product page to help identify which products are right for you.

According to Maharishi Ayurveda, every individual’s physiology is made up of a unique combination of doshas (mind-body types). This doshic constitution is called prakriti, and describes the unique nature of the individual. In addition to prakriti, we also have vikriti, which indicates the imbalances we want to address at any given time. While Maharishi Ayurveda products are balancing to all doshas and body types, they also pacify a predominant dosha that is out of balance.

V = Balancing to Vata Dosha
P = Balancing to Pitta Dosha
K = Balancing to Kapha dosha

• = Indicates the strength of the balancing effect. The more dots, the stronger the effect.

We at vpk share your concern about how to remain healthy in today’s world and we’re proud to offer you products that are USDA certified organic. Organic herbal ingredients are grown without pesticides and animal ingredients (like ghee or clarified butter) are free from antibiotics and growth hormones. Did you know that as part of the USDA organic guidelines, a product must be Non-GMO before it can carry the USDA organic seal? Our certified organic products undergo an annual 3rd party inspection to ensure they meet USDA organic standards.

Non-GMO Seal
None of our products contain genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), and we’re careful to source from vendors who can assure us that their ingredients are non-GMO. Look for the “Non-GMO” seal on all of our supplement, tea, and food packaging.

Gluten-Free Seal
All vpk by Maharishi Ayurveda supplements are gluten-free and produced in a gluten-free facility. Our products containing barley are gluten-free as well because they actually contain barley ash. During production, the barley is incinerated and the resulting ash is completely gluten-free. The barley processing is completed in a separate part of the facility to ensure processing purity.

Vegan Seal
While all of our products are vegetarian, look for the vegan seal designating those products that are free from any animal-derived ingredients such as milk, honey, ghee, beeswax, coral, conch shell, cowrie shell, oyster shell, pearl, etc.

Rasayana Seal
Rasayanas are the most highly refined and powerful mixtures of herbs, fruits and spices — renowned in ayurveda for their positive influence on mental and physical health, vitality and longevity. They also have three remarkable features: they are holistic and balanced, which means they are suitable for long-term use without negative side effects, and the effects are cumulative. In other words, the longer you take them, the more pronounced the benefits.
