In the late 80s, Americans were in pursuit of a ‘look good and feel good’ factor, which eventually gave birth to a new industry that focused on contributing to wellness. Around the same time, Dr. Majeed, a pharmacist from Kerala, having immigrated to The US in 1975 with a mere US $ 8.00 in his pocket, mind full of dreams and inspiration from his mother, had completed his PhD in Industrial Pharmacy from St. John’s University, New York. He worked in the R&D Divisions of Pfizer Inc, Carter Wallace and as Head of Research at Paco Research, New Jersey, USA. He always was aware that ‘Ayurveda’ had the answers for the ailments Americans were suffering from and to convince them, he went deep into the science of herbs, used cutting edge technology of industrial pharmacy to convert them into modern dosage forms. Thus began the journey of ‘Dr. Majeed’s success in the field of health science.’
