Abstract

COMPARATIVE ANALYTICAL STUDY OF FRESH AND READY TO USE DASHMULA KWATHA

Mehul Mehta*, Vasavdutta Kothari and Kalpu Kotecha

Abstract

Kwatha. i.e. decoction is a one of the most commonly and important dosage forms or kalpana in Ayurved. Dashmula kwatha one of the prime kwatha routinely used as vata shamaka and for jvara, svasa, parshvashula. In today‟s time kwatha are available in two forms – yavkut churna (coarse powder) from which kwatha is prepared freshly and ready to use kwatha (liquid decoction) manufactured by companies. So is was decided to do the comparative analytical study of freshly prepared kwatha from the yavkut churna and ready to use kwatha available in market of two companies. Parameter like organoleptic, physicochemical, primary phytoconstituents of aqueous extract and TLC were carried out. Slight variation were observed in the parameters carried out however one major finding was that one ready to use market sample contained high amounts of sugar i.e syrup like preparation not mentioned in label and classical reference. Hence one should be careful while prescribing and using ready to use kwatha available in market.

Keywords: Dashmula kwatha, fresh kwatha, ready to use kwatha, TLC.
