A Preliminary Pharmacognostical and Physico Chemical Assay of Shalmali moola Granules
Keywords:Shalmali moola granules, Standardization methods, Vajikarana
Ayurveda is concerned with the maintenance of life and the healing of illnesses that present themselves in the human body. Several herbal and Herbo mineral preparations have been explained in Ayurveda for the treatment of disease. Standardization is necessary to ensure batch to batch consistency, as well as for routine drug preparation on a large scale. Modification of old dosage forms and development of new dosage forms is an evolving process that leads significantly to the flourishing of science with a transforming lifestyle and people's interest. The preparation of granules consists of a refined form of Ghana (solid herbal extract preparation) and Khanda Kalpana (solid preparations similar to granules). Shalmali moola granule is a formulation for its beneficial properties such as, Balya (immuno-modulators), Rasayana (rejuvenator), Vajikarana (aphrodisiac) etc. Present study has elaborated standardization, physio-chemical parameters, Qualitative analysis and Chromatography (HPTLC) of Shalmali moola granules. Granules were prepared by adopting reference of Bhaishjya Rantavali and This study will be useful for standardization of Shalmali moola granule and for the preparation of the monography of this formulation for the Ayurvedic Formulary of India (AFI).
