Dr. Pratik Mungra*, Prof. Dr. Anup B. Thakar, Harisha C. R. and V. J. Shukla

ABSTRACT

Introduction: According to Ayurveda classics, the symptoms of Pakshaghata like loss of functions and mobility of half of the body either right or left, pain and disturbed speech are specifying involvement of Vata Dosha. Hence drugs pacifying Vata Dosha are useful in the treatment of Pakshaghata. Bala Taila has Snigdha, Ushna, Madhura, Balakrita and also Vata Shamaka properties. It is commonly used for management of Pakshaghata which commonly presents with loss of strength in affected limbs, difficulty in performing daily routine works, pain etc. Materials and Methods: Drug Bala Taila as per the reference in Chikitsa Pradipa was procured from the Pharmacy of Gujarat ayurved university, Jamnagar, Gujarat. It was prepared as per the standard preparation procedure. The final product was then subjected to pharmacognostical and pharmaceutical analysis. Pharmacognosy of Bala Taila was carried out by preparing a slide made with glass slide and cover slip. Then this slide was observed under the Carl Zeiss Trinocular microscope. Organoleptic characters and physico-chemical parameters were noted. HPTLC was performed and observed under short UV (254 nm) and long UV (366 nm). Results: Pharmacognosy study of Bala Taila revealed presence of annular vessels, Compound starch grains, Simple trichome, stellate trichome, Pollen grains and Pismatic crystal. Analytical study of Bala Taila showed 6 spots and 2 spots at 254 nm and 366 nm respectively. Discussion and Conclusion: Pharmacognosy study of Bala Taila revealed compound starch content which suggests nourishing effect of Bala. Pharmaceutical study showed the nature and other characteristics of the solution making it possible to understand how Bala Taila might have worked on patients of Pakshaghata.

Keywords: Bala Taila, Pakshaghata, Pharmacognosy, Pharmaceutics.
