Our History

PharmaTerra Inc. was founded in 1997 by practicing physicians and clinical research scientists who specialize in the application and development of biologically active natural products.*

The heart of our research and development team is Dr. Michael Baker, a physician from Washington State, Dr. E.R.B Shanmugasundaram and Dr. K. Radha Shanmugasundaram, both of whom are recognized as being among the foremost experts in the world regarding plant-based products and the maintenance of blood sugar health (for blood glucose levels that are already normal), cardiovascular health and oxidative health.*

Long before we were a company, the vision for ProBeta® started forty years ago with GS1, GS2, GS3 and GS4 - our prototypes for ProBeta®.  Our first extract of Gymnema Sylvestre was called GS1. It was developed in our laboratories, and showed us the true potential of the Gymnema-sylvestre plant.  Results from GS1 pushed us to develop GS2, and further, GS3, each one a more purified, refined, and powerful version of its predecessor. GS4 was a massive breakthrough for us. It showed us that with more research and development, what we envisioned as a product was truly possible.  It was also a breakthrough for the world of health supplements.  To this day, some of the world’s largest health supplement providers use and quote our research on GS4 in their products.  ProBeta® represents a labor of love, and a lifetime of work.*
