The Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy is a Department of India which functions under the Ministry of AYUSH. Bodies like Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences and National Institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur also function under AYUSH.
Patanjali Ayurved Ltd. is a Company registered under the Company's Act, 1956.
Taking into account the fact that the Ayurveda is a recognized discipline of medicine and Patanjali Ayurved Ltd. is a legal entity, the products of the company are likely to have some curative/beneficial effects on health.

No medicine can make claim of curing the disease. It has right to claim that it can work on symptoms. Ayurveda products don't have consistent data of curing any disease. Though some of the products shown to work on the symptoms, just like any other medicine.

I'd say company is genuine and it's products are genuine too. However don't trust any product blindly. The reason being often Ayurveda product don't show the results at all. And in turn it results in assumption that some of the time it works after long time. That is not true.

Some of the ayurveda medincine works and some don't at all. So it is just matter of the disease and it's symptoms and the penetration of it inside the body.

Ayurvedic system is very old system prevalent in our country and the products available in the market of various reputed Pharmactuals including Baba Ramdev is serving the humanity.
So far the efficacies of these Ayurvedic medicines are concerned, they do work in the body - system provided the medicines ( Patanjali- products) are taken after the consultation of Ayurvedic - practicener who understands the Prakriti of a particular patient. There are three Prakriti - doshas namely Vata, Pitta and cough and a proficient Ayurvedic - practicener prescribes medicines after due considerations of these doshas. People have been immensely benifited with the formulations of Patanjali - products. In Patanjali - stores, one may take the service of competent Vaidyas in choosing the right medicine.
Madhu Nasini Vati prescribed for diabetic patients have been benifited considerably in lowering their sugar level. In Insomnia, Medha Vati works very effectively - which I have experienced personally.
However, I would suggest not to choose medicines personally, rather take the advantage of Aurvedic - practiciners available in Patanjali - stores to reap the benifit of Ayurvedic - medicines.

Ayurvedic products help cure many diseases with hardly any side effects. The main point I would like to raise is that allopathic medicines work only for short term and have many side effects. My dad had high BP which when treated using allopathic medicines worked only for short term and was used to come back. So he started taking ayurvedic medicines and the good news is that his BP has been stable since then.

Who says that their is no scientific evidence of success of ayurvedic medicines in fact labs have been set up in US which have successfully proved it. Therefore sale of Patanjali products have boomed as people themselves have experienced its positive outcome. Also ayurvedic medicines are nothing but extracts of parts of herbs, plants and trees.

Patanjali has research labs worth more than 300 crores so that can be a point of argument regarding how safe their products are. The main message that Baba Ramdev wants to spread is that Indians should use more ayurvedic products as they originated from India. Also the money earned by Patanjali is used for Ayurvedic research and for charity purpose. Overall we conclude that one can rely on ayurvedic products for long term benefits.

*Do consult an ayurvedic doctor before taking ayurvedic medicines of any kind.

The Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy is a Department of India which functions under the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare. So, it can be stated that Government of India recognises alternative systems of medicine.

However, whether the medicines of Patanjali Ayrved Medicine Ltd. can cure diseases can't be stated for sure. Many people believe the medicines prescribed by Baba Ramdev, many don't.

Personally I can state that many Ayurvedic and herbal medicines help in preventing various diseases. But I am not sure about complete cure, because these products are not chemically tested.

'Patanjali' establishment by Baba Ramdev is not a miracle entity nor does it have any miracle powers. Ayurvedic system is an accepted system in our country and there are many established institutions teaching Ayurvedic system of medicine. The medicines are prepared from the formula given in many of the ancient texts by(mostly) ancient rishis.

Before the advent of modern medicine(Allopathy) Ayurvedic system was prevalent and even the common man had the basic knowledge in them. Patanjali also is following the standard texts and formula for preparing the medicines. Apart from them some traditional Vaidyas or 'parampara' s may have their own special proprietary formula also. Patanjali also may have a few of such proprietary medicines, if so that may be mentioned on the medicine wrappers and brochures.

The efficacy of Ayurvedic medicine lies in the genuineness of the ingredients and the proper way the patient follows the treatment under an expert doctor.

Many of the medicines Patanjali markets are also available in some local Ayurvedic stores and are manufactured by many other reputed Ayurvedic establishments.In Patanjali's case, the advertisement and the personal popularity of Baba Ramdev adds to its demand. Then, the individual faith of the patient also matters.

In present day,many of the herbs and medicinal plants are not available in the required quantity due to vast deforestation and villages becoming cities most of them get destroyed and may be even extinct soon. So the medicine manufacture suffers from compromise in quality, quantity and even substitution or avoidance of certain ingredients. That affects the efficacy of the medicines.
