Abstract

EVALUATION OF PHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF A POLYHERBOMINERAL SIDDHA FORMULATION SAAMUTHRA CHOORANAM

M. Ahkalya* and A. Manoharan

ABSTRACT

Introduction: The ancient Siddha system of medicine is unique in its way of healing diseases. A widespread evidences on herbs (Mooligai), minerals (Thaathu) and animal products (Jeevam). However as per WHO guidelines, for any medical formulation standardization plays an inevitable role before marketing. This study is to analyse the physicochemical properties of a polyherbomineral Siddha formulation Saamuthra Chooranam for Eri gunmam (Acid Peptic ulcer Disease). Aim and Objectives: The aim of this study is to determine the physicochemical properties of a poly herbomineral formulation Saamuthra Chooranam (SAC). Materials and Methods: The drugs of Saamuthra Chooranam were authenticated by the Department of Medicinal Botany, Government Siddha Medical College, Palayamkottai. Further those drugs were purified as mentioned in classical Siddha literatures. The drugs were finely powdered and analysed for the physicochemical parameters including the percentages of total ash, acid insoluble ash, water soluble ash and sulphated ash, water soluble extractive, alcohol soluble extractive, pH value, Swelling index, Foaming index, Volatile oil percentage and total fat percentage. Results and Discussion: The Saamuthra Chooranam (SAC) showed a pH value of 4.58% that indicates the slight acidic nature. 4.5% of volatile oil content was found from the studies. Conclusion: The physicochemical parameters are evaluated for Saamuthra Chooranam that would be helpful for further preclinical studies on it.

Keywords: Eri gunmam, Saamuthra chooranam, Physico chemical parameters, Peptic Ulcer Disease.
