Ajay Patel started Verdure Sciences® in 1997 as a division of Geni Herbs. The company began when Patel recognized that traditional Indian medicine was growing in popularity in the United States. His Chemical Engineering degree from Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN, USA) gave Patel the executive understanding of control processes. This, coupled with his vision for unparalleled customer service and vision for premium ingredients, backed by innovative research and development, offered continuous growth. He recognized the demand for clinical research as well as a need for ingredient confidence, leading to continued success for Verdure Sciences®.

Verdure Sciences® has a deep appreciation for nature’s ingredients and we believe in the intrinsic synergy of plants that have been used as medicine for thousands of years. Therefore, our research focus is on investigating and developing what we call ‘natural spectrum’ extracts, which reflect a plant’s natural phytochemical profile. We also believe in the rigorous application of scientific validation to our herbs and botanicals. An extensive research network of universities, medical centers, and laboratories allows us to develop safe and efficacious ingredients.

Our research approach begins with screening for safety, biological activity, and chemical characterization. Second, an evaluation is performed to determine the environmental impact of sourcing the botanical raw material, optimal solvent selection, and product batch consistency. Once a promising lead has passed this stage, a battery of studies often including clinical (human) research, safety studies, and development for various dose delivery applications may be performed.

Strong product development relies on constant innovation and improvement, along with validated, replicable testing methods, references and standards to ensure maximum activity and consistency.
