Banyan Botanicals was founded in 1996 by Scott Cote and Kevin Casey in Albuquerque, New Mexico, out of a love of Ayurveda and a passion for providing the highest quality Ayurvedic herbs and products.
Banyan's roots start at The Ayurvedic Institute, where Scott and Kevin studied with Vasant Lad, MASc. They met in the Institute's herbal pharmacy, where they worked side-by-side mixing formulas for clients and absorbing their teacher's wisdom. It was there that they realized the need for high quality, trustworthy herbs and ingredients in the United States, and the idea for Banyan was born.
For over two decades, Banyan Botanicals has been a pioneer in the health supplements community, focusing on organic products that are sustainably grown and fairly traded. To this day, these commitments continue to be the driving force of Banyan as the team works to support others on their journey toward optimal health and wellness.
