Abstract

A COMPARATIVE PHARMACEUTICO-ANALYTICAL STUDY OF PINDA SNEHA USING TAILA AND GHRITA AS SNEHA DRAVYA

Sangeetha K. S.*, Purushotham K. G. and Gopala Krishna Nayak

Abstract

Background: Sneha Kalpana is one among those preparations derived from the basic Kalpanas prepared using either Ghrita or Taila. Out of these, Ghrita is considered to be the best because of its unique nature of incorporating the properties of the drugs with which it comes in contact, without leaving its own natural qualities. Taila is the best Sneha for the pacification of Vatarogas and is said to be predominantly used externally. Hence usually Ghrita (Ghee) or Taila (oil) are used as media of extraction where as in rare cases Vasa and Majja are used. The Sneha used in the preparation imbibes the qualities of the drugs used as Kalka Dravya, thereby making the Sneha therapeutically active. References are available for the contents and preparation of Pinda Taila. Studies are also done evaluating the analytical and clinical efficacy of Pinda Taila. But till date no studies have recorded the preparation of Pinda taila in other Sneha Dravya’s such as Ghrita or Vasa, in spite of the therapeutic value which can be incorporated into the raw materials enhancing its absorption into the biological systems. Hence, considering this fact, an attempt has been made to study and explore the value of Ayurvedic concept of Sneha Kalpana in Taila and Ghrita, wsr to Pharmaceutical preparation of Pinda Taila by using modern analytical parameters. Aims and Objectives: Comparative Pharmaceutical Analysis of Pinda Sneha prepared from 2 different types of Sneha’s – Taila and Ghrita. Methodology: The present study was carried out in two steps namely; pharmaceutical and analytical. In the pharmaceutical study, as the preparation of Pinda Ghrita is not mentioned in the classics, the ingredients mentioned from Charaka Samhitha was chosen for the study and the general method of Taila preparation as mentioned by Sharangadhara Samhitha was adopted. In the analytical study, all the two prepared samples were subjected to various analytical parameters and chromatography techniques for 0th, 1st, 6th and 12th months and were compared. Organoleptic evaluation of colour, odour and appearance were also carried out for the samples. Results: In the organoleptic study of the 2 samples showed slight rancidity for both the samples. With the analytical study conducted for 0th, 1st, 6th and 12th month of the prepared samples, the conclusion of the study was difficult and only a detail further study of both in-vitro and clinical are needed for the validation and scientific establishment of the data.

Keywords: Pinda Taila, Ghrita, Analytical study.
