Abstract

ANTI- HEMORRHAGIC ACTIVITY OF NATHAICHOORI VIRAI CHOORANAM; A MULTI HERBAL SIDDHA FORMULATION

K. Sathiyapriya*, M. Murugesan, S. Visweswaran, S. Sivakumar and A. Mariappan

ABSTRACT

Siddha medicine is one of the oldest medical systems known to mankind. More than 2500 years ago, the Siddha system of medicine is generated from Dravidian culture. It is claimed to revitalize and rejuvenate dysfunctional organs that cause the disease. Herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, and in some cases spiritual usage. Archaeological evidence indicates that the use of medicinal plants dates at least to the Paleolithic, approximately 60,000 years ago. Plants contain phytochemicals that have specific effects on the body. A scientific investigation of medicinal plants not only demonstrates a particular type of activity which has been reported in ancient literature but also time emerges produces some unexpected activity. The main aim of the present investigation is to evaluate the styptic activity (anti hemorrhagic) of Nathaichoori virai Chooranam (NVC). The results of the study reveal that treatment with NVC at the dose of 500 and 1000 mg/kg has shown significant decrease in bleeding time, clotting time and prothrombin time in treated rats. From the results it was concluded that the siddha formulation NVC has greater potential of preventing hemorrhage. Further studies are to be needed to prove its therapeutic effect through clinical trials.

Keywords: Nathaichoori virai chooranam, Hemorrhage, Siddha medicine, bleeding time, clotting time, prothrombin time.
