Bioherb - About Us

Bio-Herb Remedies Incorporation is a registered Canadian company. Our main activity is research, development, formulations and manufacturing of herbal medicine that we develop through years of research and trials. Since 1994 we have invented, developed and formulated many natural products for the treatment of various human diseases that have saved many lives and made a difference in peoples lives in many countries around the world.

Main scientists behind the research and formulations of Bio-Herb Remedies Inc. and Micro Herb Inc. products:


Dr. Rashbinder Hashimi B.Sc. (Hons), M.Sc. (Hons), Ph.D. in Microbiology is a Research Scientist, founder and owner of Bio-Herb Remedies Inc. Canada. Dr. Hashimi’s main training is in Microbiology with emphasis on the role of microorganisms in cases of unexplained infertility in human females (http://hdl.handle.net/10603/79284). Her work has been published and referenced by other researchers: Grewal, R.K., Prabha, V., Malhotra, S.K., Gupta, K.G. (2007). J. Obstet Gynecol India Vol. 57, No.5: 426-430.

Since 1994, Dr. Hashimi joined hands with Dr. Toora and they diverted their research into natural medicine. Together they have formulated many natural products for the treatment of liver diseases, heart failure, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and pain, obesity and skin diseases (acne, eczema, psoriasis, cold sores, bacterial and fungal infections). Their products are all natural and clinically proven to be effective.


Dr. Syed Toora B.Sc. (Hons), M.Sc. (Hons), Ph.D. is a Microbiologist and Research Scientist as well as founder and owner of Micro Herb Inc. Dr. Toora’s main training is in Applied Bacteriology with emphasis on Yersinia enterocolitica and Listeria monocytogenes.


Dr. Toora has published many research papers in European and American Scientific Journals.

  • 1992   Developed a procedure to resuscitate injured cells of Listeria monocytogenes. Published in Applied And Environmental Microbiology (USA).

  • 1994   Developed a two step procedure for isolation of Yersinia enterocolitica. Published in Food Microbiology (Holland).

  • 1995   Developed growth media and assay for Yersinia enterocolitica (U.S. Patent # 5447849, Sep. 5, 1995).

  • 1995   Formulated a herbal gargle solution for the treatment of Strep-A sore throat and clinically proven to cure Strept-A sore throat (Reported in The Guardian Newspaper, P.E.I. Canada, page 1, Nov. 23, 1995).

  • 1995   Developed a rapid identification method for suspected isolates of Y. enterocolitica using a protein (bacteriocin) as specific marker. Published in Letters in Applied Microbiology (UK).

  • 1995   Discovered a crude plant extract with a wide range of anti-microbial activity against Streptococcus pyogenes (Strep-A), Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans (Reported in The Guardian Newspaper, P.E.I. Canada, page 1, Nov. 23, 1995).

  • 1996-1997   Formulated natural herbal creams for the treatment of Acne, Cold sore, Eczema, Psoriasis and Skin Infections (Reported in The Guardian Newspaper, P.E.I. Canada, page 1, March 21, 1997).

  • 1999   Invented a topical skin cream for the treatment of Mosquito bite (Reported in The Guardian Newspaper, P.E.I., Canada, June 15, 1999).
