ABSTRACT

Ayurvedic single / compound formulations have reached extensive acceptability as therapeutic agents for several diseases. Quality control of Ayurvedic medicines is an important factor for Ayurvedic drug industry and other drug development organizations. Apamarga Kshara is the choice of drug having various therapeutic uses in Ayurvedic practice. It is prescribed mainly for the treatment of Gulma (Abdominal lump), Udara-sula (Pain in the abdomen), Grahani (Malabsorption syndrome) and Visuchika (Gastro-enteritis with piercing pain). The ingredients were procured locally, identified. Kshara was prepared in laboratory and analyzed. Two samples of kshara were procured from drug manufactures. These samples were subjected to macroscopic, physic-chemical parameters and Sodium, Potassium and Iron assay. The set parameters were found to be sufficient to evaluate the Kshara and can be used as reference for the quality control/quality assurance.

Keywords: Ayurvedic formulation, Apamarga kshara, Physico-chemical analysis, Assay.
