QUALITY EVALUATION AND STANDARDIZATION OF AN AYURVEDIC ANTI-DIABETIC FORMULATION: MEHARI CHOORNAAbstract
To access the quality of drug the standardization is very critical. As per WHO guidelines, 80% of the peoples have relied on traditional medicine in a rising nation. Most of the conventional system is valuable but a lack of standardization. The parameters studied are physicochemical parameters, phytochemical parameters & qualitative chemical tests. These values will help to obtain the batch to batch variation in traditional preparation of Mehari Choorna which is used to treat diabetes mellitus. We calculated and discussed extractive values, moisture content and ash value. The scientific method for its quality and safety evaluation is not yet to be documented. Hence in the current work, an attempt has been made to evaluate the quality parameters to be used for its preparation and processing.
