AYUSH ministry to set up expert group to examine use of Ashwagandha leaves in ASU drugs
In the wake of the ministry barring the use of Ashwagandha leaves (via letter dated October 6 to the ASU Drugs Manufacturing Association), representations had been received from ASU Drugs Manufacturing Industry partners, a statement by the ministry said.
The AYUSH ministry had also invited the stakeholders to discuss their concerns about the utilisation of Ashwagandha leaves in ASU products.
“Based on this discussion, the ministry has decided to re-examine the advisory issued to the drug manufacturers to refrain from using Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) leaves by setting up an expert group,” the statement said.
