ABSTRACT

Rasashastra is a well-established branch serving humanity with its unique heritage of drug derived from metals or minerals and animal origin combined with certain herbs since centuries with claimed efficacy without noticeable untoward toxic effect. However recently safety of herbo-mineral preparations has been in question. Need of the hour is to standardize the formulation to maintain the quality and efficacy of these drugs. In the present study, an attempt has been made to develop standard operating procedure of Rasa Manikya Ras. It is a herbo-mineral formulation containing Parada, Gandhaka and Naga and is described in various classical text of Rasashastra. Rasa Manikya Ras is described as Manikya (ruby) coloured Bhasma of Parada prepared by Kupipakva method. This is useful in treating various disease to increase eye sight, body strength, increase vigour and vitality and helps in curing all types of skin disorders due to vitiation of Vata and Kapha. In the present study three sample of Rasa Manikya Ras were prepared as per standard parameters. Shodhana of Parada, Gandhaka and Naga was carried out as per textual guidelines. The average yield of Rasa Manikya Ras was 42.44% and residue was 9.73% from 250g of Kajjali. All the three samples of Rasa Manikya Ras followed the same heating pattern throughout the 48hr duration. The various stages of fuming, flaming and corking occurred at almost similar temperature and duration.

Keywords: Rasa Manikya Ras, Kupipakva, Parada Bhasma, Naga.
