The Health Ministry in a statement said it would carry out raids to detect Ayurvedic herbal products which contain an alcohol level exceeding 4.5 % which is the minimum amount approved by the ministry.

It said the raids were being carried out on the instructions of Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne after the receipt of several complaints from consumers, who pointed out that some of the herbal products contained more than 4.5 %.

Complainers said that some Ayurvedic herbal products contained an alcohol level of even 10%.

The ministry has co-opted a group comprising Ayurvedic Doctors, Public Health Inspectors and Excise Department Officers to carry out the raids.

    All Ayurvedic preparations including creams, balms and Spa products should be tested for lead and heavy metals.Labeling of ingredients is not adhered to.

    Do Ayurvedic medicines contain more alcohol than beer?

    Priyantha Sunday, 07 August 2016 03:45 PM

    @Siripala12 No.They contain naturally generated alcohol. This alcohol acts as the medium for active ingredients of the herbs to dissolve in it.

    Ayurvedic medicines also have much higher contents of heavy metals, Lead and Mercury.
