Abstract:

Standardization of herbal formulations is essential in order to assess the quality of drugs, based on the concentration of their active principles. The present work is an attempt to standardize Dashamularishta, a traditional formulation, used in the normalization of physiological processes after child birth. Four marketed preparations and three in-house preparations were used for the study. The various parameters performed included organoleptic characteristics, physicochemical and toxicological parameters. HPTLC was carried out for quantitative analysis of piperine in all the formulations. The results obtained may be considered as tools for assistance to the regulatory authorities, scientific organizations and manufacturers for developing standards.
