“First, we started our work as a research team in the incubator center of Islamic Azad University’s Kahnouj branch with the idea of producing compressed herbal tablets used as a spice in the food industry,” Amin Ganjali, a PhD graduate in chemistry and the managing director of the technological ‘Arinashimi Gwashir’ company stationed at the incubator center for the development of new technologies in transformation industries, told ANA.

“During the pre-growth and research period, the company succeeded in making samples of herbal supplements to help treat certain common diseases like diabetes,” he added.

“Now we have offered a number of 100% herbal products, which we are going through the process of patenting and obtaining the necessary licenses from Iran’s Food and Drug Administration to present them to the consumer market,” Ganjali said.

Iran ranks fourth in the world in the production of science in the field of traditional medicine, and the remarkable achievement will improve in the coming years, Nafiseh Hosseini Yekta, the director of the Health Ministry’s Persian medicine office, said.

There are 2,500 plant species with medicinal properties in Iran where hundreds of local companies and research centers cultivate, harvest, and process these plants to extract their essential oils and create novel medications from them, luring in international businesses which are seeking low-price and high-quality products.

A herbal medicine recently produced by an Iranian company can help alleviate stress and diminish insomnia.

Fatemeh Zahra Almasi, the managing director of Rouhan Sabz Paliz company, told ANA that the processed lemon grass plant is produced in dried form, in the form of essence, and in the form of extract.

The essence of the plant helps to relieve insomnia or control stress, she added.
