ABSTRACT

Standardization of Siddda drugs is the need of the hour. ‘Mayilliragathy chooranam’ is a herbo -mineral siddha preparation, being used as Hiccups and vomiting in the text Theyraiyar padal thiratu-1001. Aim and Objective: To do physicochemical and phytochemical analysis for the drug ‘Mayilliragathy chooranam’. Materials and Methods: The drug is prepared as per the method mentioned in the classic siddha literature. The powder of this formulation was subjected to physicochemical study such as total ash value, acid insoluble ash, water soluble ash, water soluble extractive, Alcohol soluble extractive, moisture content. The behavior of the prepared powder with different reagent and fluorescence analysis was also carried out Preliminary phytochemical screening of the extracts showed the presence of alkaloid, carbohydrate, glycoside, diterpenes, flavonoids, gum& mucilage The physicochemical study reveals that drug contains the following composition: total ash 7.36%, acid insoluble ash 1.00%, water soluble ash 2.72% water soluble extractive 16.16%, Alcohol soluble extractive 31.59%, moisture content 8.73%,.The achieved results of physico-chemical, and phyto-chemical profiling will be useful as tools for authentication and standardization profile of the herbo-mineral formulation.
