Rasavaidya Nagindas Shah Award for Contribution to the Subject of Rasashastra

About Rasavaidya Nagindas Shah :-

Rasavaidya Nagindas Shah had dedicated his entire life for the propogation and promotion of Ayurveda and its therapeutics. He is the founder of the pioneering Ayurvedic drug manufacturing company Unza Pharmaceuticals which was established in 1894 at Unza in north Gujarat. The foundation laid down by Nagindasji 121 years ago has grown exponentially and the quality products of Unza Pharmaceuticals are available nationally and internationally in several countries. The mission of serving the poor and downtrodden people embarked by Nagindasji has been continued through Unza Pharmaceuticals by establishing a charitable hospital in the honour of Vaidyaraj Nagindas Shah.

The title Rasavaidya denotes the expertise and authenticity of Nagindasji in the subject of Rasashastra (Indian Alchemy). Unza Pharmaceuticals currently manufactures over 400 classical Ayurvedic products and Rasaushadhis (products made from minerals and metals) is one of its strongholds. A memorable academic contribution to the field of Ayurveda for the generations to come by Nagindasji is the ‘Bharat Bhaishajya Ratnakar’ a compilation of about 10,000 classical formulations collected from scattered texts and nighantus of traditional Ayurvedic pharmacopeia.
