प्राचीन ग्रंथों में हर्ब्स, मसालों और पेड़-पौधों का काफी जिक्र मिलता है। यह किताब खान-पान संबंधी कुछ ऐसी चुनिन्दा हर्ब्स के ऐतिहासिक, सांस्कृतिक और वैज्ञानिक संबंधों को तलाशती है, जो केवल भारत ही नहीं बल्कि दुनिया के दूसरे हिस्सों में भी इस्तेमाल होती रही हैं। यह किताब उनके महत्व और इस्तेमाल का वर्णन करती है तथा हर्बल उत्पादों पर जारी अनुसंधानों की मौजूदा स्थितियों की समीक्षा करती है।


The popularity of organic and herbal food, herbal beauty care, and medicinal products is rising. This is spurred on the back of a general belief that herbal solutions have little to no side effects. Select herbs and trees from India and China are subjected to critical analysis through a review of the history, botany, ecology, trade, medicinal, and other uses of each of them.

Pre- release reviews

As a botanist, I found the discussion on the botanical aspects of various Asian plants is interesting and meticulously described. The author has also comprehensively addressed the historical, medicinal and industrial uses of herbs, shrubs and trees.

Dr Ravikumar, Senior Botanist, FRLHT, Bengaluru, India

The author did a great job outlining the major parts of Ayurveda medicine and plants. His methods of delivery are very clear and very useful.

Sudhir Ahluwalia represents a very interesting blend of history of Asian herbs, modern applications, such as current uses as a food and medicine, as well as outlook presenting likely future developments. While Asian herbs are the major focus of the book, surprisingly many additional relevant and exciting aspects are also discussed, ranging from the increasingly recognized regulatory role of microbiota for the human health, to emerging applications of 3D bioprinting.

Atanas Atanasov, Professor and Head of Microbiology, Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding, IGHZ, Poland

The book ‘ Asian Herbs’ written by Dr Sudhir Ahluwalia, ex senior IFS officer & business consulting head of Tata Consultancy Services gives a very nice information along with colored photographs and a very vivid description about the common herbs used in India & China for pharmacological and culinary uses.

The book not only dwells on the historical & mythological importance of the herbs but also their geographic distribution, morphology, alkaloids found in them, their pharmacological & culinary uses, results of different authentic research done on them in the important research institutions of the world with their references. This kind of perfection is very rarely found in the related literature found scattered here & there. I hope this book will be a great asset for the students, research scholars and the people engaged in the pharmacological & culinary fields.

I heartily congratulate Dr Sudhir Ahluwalia for all the painstaking efforts which he has put into bringing out this masterpiece treatise on the chosen subject.

Jyoti Swaroop Asthana, IFS (Retd), Ex Principal Chief Conservator of Forests & Head of Forest Force, UP, Lucknow, India
