*Sangeeta Kumari, Dr. Darshna Pandya and Harisha C. R.

ABSTRACT

Background: Asanadi Ghanavati is Asanadigana mentioned in Astanghridya. It is formulated as a Vati preparation due to its easy palatability & long term storage. Asanadi gana has been indicated for the disease like Shivitra, Kustha, Kapha, Krimi, Panduroga, Prameha and Medodosha. The pharmacognostical and physico-chemical data is not published on Asanadi Ghanavati till date. Hence the present study was planned. Aims: To evaluate pharmacognostical and physico-chemical characters of Asanadi Ghanavati. Materials & Methods: Prepared drug was collected from pharmacy and authenticated in respective Laboratory of the institute. Standard procedures were followed to undertake the pharmacognostical and physico-chemical analysis. Results: Phrmacognostical results of Asanadi Ghanavati showed Lignified fibres of Asana, Saal and Arjun, border pitted vessel of Khadir & Swetchandan, Prismatic crystal of Swetkhadeer & Daruharidra etc. Physicochemical analysis Asanadi Ghanavati showed that weight variation 28.45%, Hardness 1.95kg/cm2 etc., In HPTLC, Asanadi Ghanavati revealed 12spots at 254nm and 12 spots at 366nm. Discussion: Pharmacognostical study with the help organoleptic characters like taste, odour, colour and touch along with microscopical characters and physico-chemical parameters to find out exact authentication of the ingredients present in the formulation. The presence of all raw content in final product shows the genuineness of the final product. Conclusion: As there is no reported study for the standardization of the drug, the finding of the present study will be helpful as reference guidance for future scientific evaluations of the drug.

Keywords: HPTLC, Asanadi Ghanavati, Medodosha, analysis, Physicochemical.
