Abstract

REVIEW ON A HERBO MINERAL DRUG – LAGHU SOOTASHEKARA RASA

Dr. Gopikirshna M.* and Dr. Parikshitha Navada**

ABSTRACT

Ayurveda consider tridosha as mula(origin) for sareera(body). When these are in equilibrium, it maintains body, destructs when equilibrium is lost. Among the naanatmaja vikara 40 vikaras are included in pitta dusti. At present, gastritis (acid peptic disease) is a common problem in society due to various behavioural and environmental factors. Further excessive use of NSAID's (non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) and infection of Helicobacter pylori also contribute major part in pathogenesis of APD. APD is gastrointestinal disorder that has been recognized since ancient time. In Ayurveda, it is similar to amlapitta and is common throughout the world and prevalence has been estimated approximately 11–14% for men and 8–11% for women. The usage of synthetic drugs such as antacids, H 2 receptor blockers and proton pump inhibitors have abbreviated due to their side effects. These crisis lead to the search for natural products from plant or mineral origin possessing potential anti–ulcer activity. Rasaushadhis (herbo– mineral ayurvedic medicines) are unique dosage forms having benefit of longer shelf life, better therapeutic efficacy at low dose. Laghusootashekara rasa having shuddha gairika, shunti as ingredients given bhavana with nagavalli swarasa combination does pittaharana and doesn’t increase vata and indicated in Amlapitta, Pittaja vikara, like suryavartha, raktapitta. In the present review, an attempt is made to understand the possible mode of action of Laghusootashekara Rasa on pittaja vikara and its anti–ulcer activity.

Keywords: Laghusootashekara rasa, pitta vikara, anti ulcer formulations.
