Abstract

“COMPARATIVE PHARMACEUTICO-ANALYTICAL STUDY OF LAUHA BHASMA PREPARED BY TWO DIFFERENT METHODS W.S.R. TO RASATARANGINI.”

Dr. Monish Maruti Shinde*, Dr. Shashiprabha L. Gupta and Dr. Sharadkumar R. Maurya

Abstract

Introduction: The preparation of Bhasma comprises of many steps including the purification (Shodhana), Bhavana (levigation), Marana, Chakrika (pellets) making, Puta etc. These steps are studied and performed judiciously during the entire process of Bhasma making. There is no importance given to marana dravyas while using a specific bhasma in any kalpa. In this particular study the marana of Lauha has been carried out by Hingula and Manashila. Aim and Objectives: To study comparatively, the pharmaceutico-analytical properties of Hingula marit Lauha bhasma and Manashila marit Lauha bhasma. Materials and methods: Lauha shodhana was performed as per the reference of rasaratnasammuchaya and further subjected to marana process. Marana was done by two processes namely Hingula marit and Manashila marit as mentioned in rasatarangini text. The prepared samples of bhasma were subjected to physic- chemical analysis and the properties were compared. Observations and results: The results showed only a slight change in properties in analytical testing but there were some pharmaceutical changes in both processes. Conclusion: There was a change in the pharmaceutico-analytical properties of lauha bhasma prepared by two processes. It can therefore be concluded that the change in marana dravya leads to change in pharmaceutico- analytical properties. However further study can be done to test whether there is change in therapeutic properties due to change in marana dravyas.

Keywords: Bhasma, Hingula marit Lauha bhasma, Manashila marit Lauha bhasma.
