Effective immediately, KSM-66 is allowed to bear the Non- GMO Project Verified seal. This makes KSM-66 Ashwagandha the first, and currently the only ashwagandha ingredient to be non-GMO verified.
KSM-66 Ashwagandha, made by Ixoreal Biomed, was also the first ashwagandha branded ingredient to be certified 100-percent organic by USDA.
“The Non-GMO Project Verification and the organic certification emphasize that KSM-66 is produced without synthetic or genetically engineered components, and that KSM-66 comes from a pure and natural process," said Kartikeya Baldwa, director at Ixoreal.
Ixoreal is entirely vertically integrated, with its own farms, manufacturing and distribution.
In March, Ixoreal Biomed was awarded the Frost & Sullivan 2014 Product Innovation in Botanicals Award for its KSM-66 ashwagandha.
