COMPARATIVE STANDARDIZATION STUDY OF GANDHARVA HARITAKI CHURNA FORMULATIONAbstract
Standardization is the need of the hour in Ayurvedic system of medicine. The traditional systems of medicine are really effective but the problem with them is they lack in quality assurance. This enables us to recognise the quality of the formulation. The Central Council of Research in Ayurveda and Siddha has prescribed the preliminary guidelines for testing the quality of these formulations. It is essential to derive a protocol or develop methods for evaluation of herbal formulation to maintain uniformity between batches during production. The present work aims to standardize a poly-herbal churna called Gandharva haritaki Churna available in the market. The churna was procured and standardised for the parameters like organoleptic characters, physical characters, physiochemical properties and phytochemical screening etc. These parameters can determine the quality of the product. The results were found to be within the standards.
