Our Story ...
We are a brand of powerful herbal formulas and superstar single herbs available through health care professionals. We are a family owned business, with a husband and wife team at the helm. We are focused on bringing a powerful new idea to the world, one that embraces the wisdom of ancient Ayurveda and other herbal traditions as well as ultra-modern technology.
We want to give the world hope, through the use of plants in wise and traditional ways. We seek to combat the ravages of the current environment and the pressures of modern life, by making Ayurveda and the herbal traditions of India more available and acceptable to the US and western medicine.
The Rebel Herbs brand is 'not for ordinary mortals'. An extraordinary line of powerful formulas and superstar single herbs available through healthcare professionals and qualified natural retailers. Our products are made exclusively from herbs and spices that come from our certified organic farms or purchased for a fair price from the certified organic cooperative that we helped create and finance. In this way, we can ensure that the products are made from the best plants in the world.
Our proprietary full spectrum process gently extracts the complete array of phytonutrients using a combination of supercritical CO2 and hydrophilic extractions. This process allows us to deliver a complete signature of the herb in its pure but concentrated form. No chemical solvents or high heat is used in the process, ensuring optimal stability and a complete profile of compounds, just as nature intended.
This new dual extraction process allows for better absorption and a more complete and consistent activity in the body. The improved benefits are evident in the clinical trials already done on some of the products and the resulting patents, both US and international patents.
Our formulation strategy calls on an approach that allows even patients and physicians that are not knowledgeable in Ayurveda to benefit. This is a Rasayana approach which means a balanced herbal approach that is beneficial for all body types and is used in a condition-specific way.
We are stewards of our planet and as such, we practice organic and biodynamic farming, but our commitment to the planet goes far beyond the growth of today's herbs and spices. We have been involved in creating organic farming products for decades and not only do we use these products on our own farm but we also market them around the world at below-market prices to help solve the fiscal difficulties of becoming an organic grower.
We carry our dedication for the planet to our manufacturing as well. We practice safe environmentally responsible extraction by using CO2 extraction when possible and water or alcohol when required. By avoiding the use of hexane and acetone and by recycling the CO2 used, we are reducing our toxic waste to a negligible level and keeping our commitment to future generations by delivering a healthy planet for them to live on.

Our operation is truly sustainable, not only do we grow herbs and spices on our own certified organic farm but we have organized and educated the farmers all around us on organic and sustainable practices. Our suppliers often pay the fees associated with getting the certification, this is an expense the farmers in that area could never have afforded on their own. We have also contracted with many farmers to grow and supply us with the herbs and spices necessary to maintain our supplies even through massive growth.
