These drugs are known for its pharmacological activity like immuno-modulatory activity, anti-tussive activity, anti-asthamatic activity, analgesic, adaptogenic activity/antistress activity, antipyretics activity and anti-inflammatory activity. Ayush Kwatha is used as hot decoction but, every time making decoction is time consuming and tedious procedure leading to reduction in compliance. Thus the present study is designed to prepare Ayush Kwatha in such form to improve the palatability and potency of the formulation. Ayush Kwatha was prepared in four different forms viz. AKC- conventional method, AKV-DW with distilled water, AKV-NS with Nimbu swarasa and AKV-Aq. Ex. with aqueous extract. The finished product of each batch was subjected to analytical tests on parameters obligatory to assure its acceptable quality (by Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences-CCRAS). All the batches were found analytically optimal on Quality control parameters. It can be used safely to manage symptoms of upper respiratory tract in mild to moderate illness of COVID-19 therapeutically. Batch IV AKV-Aq. Ex. is more potent as it is made up of aqueous extract and can be used orally along with any of the other three batches in the form of decoction.
