Abstract

TO EVALUATE THE PHYSICOCHEMICAL PARAMETER AND HPTLC STUDY OF SWARNA PRASHANA AND MADHU-GHRITA PRASHANA

Dr. Champa Lal*, Shukla V. J., Dr. V. K. Kori and Prof. K. S. Patel

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Swarna Prashana is a unique practice of gold licking mixed with honey and ghee in Neonates for health promotion and disease prevention described in Ayurveda. In the present study, the Swarna Prashana prepared from Swarna Bhasma, Madhu and Ghrita and Madhu-Ghrita Prashana were subjected to drug stability test with respect to physiochemical parameters and HPTLC. Acharya Kashyapa has described the unique concept of Lehana (licking of pure Gold with honey and ghee) in which the practise of administration of processed gold in neonates (Navajata Shishu) is mentioned as “Swarna Prashana”. Various Acharyas mentioned different Lehanas for the newborn mainly they are the combination of the Ghrita, Madhu and Swarna. Acharya Charaka, mentioned only mixture of Ghrita and Madhu. Present study is carried out in to evaluate the possibilities of using Swarna Prashana and Madhu-Ghrita Prashana which will help sustainable utilization. Swarna Parshana and Madhu-Ghrita Prashana basic physicochemical analysis and high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC). Aim and Objective: To evaluate physicochemical parameters of Swarna Prashana and Madhu- Ghrita Parashana. Materials and Method: The classical Ayurvedic texts, internet and Scientific Journals. Result: Physico-chemical analyses were carried out by following the parameters. The common parameters were mentioned for Ayurvedic Pharmacopeia of India and CCRAS guidelines Physico-chemical analysis like loss on drying at 110°C, pH value, ash value, water soluble extractive, methanol soluble extractive were recorded. Conclusion: The physico chemical analysis of Swarna Parshana and Madhu-Ghrita Prashana confirmed the purity and genuinely of the drug.

Keywords: HPTLC profile, Madhu-Ghrita Prashana, Physicochemical analysis, Swarna Prashana.
