Dr. Priya Indurkar* and Dr. S. T. Landge

ABSTRACT

Standardization of herbal drug is essential in order to assess quality of drug for therapeutic value, also confirms drugs identity and purity. Under the heading of standardization the various parameters are applied i.e. pharmacognostic study, physicochemical study, preliminary phytochemical screening, chromatographic study. Chandrashoor (Lepidium Sativum Linn.) is a herbal drug of family Cruciferae. The herb is commonly known as garden cress. Their seeds have a wealth of protein, fibers, omega-3 acid, iron and other vital nutrients. It is used in many medical conditions like diarrhoea, hiccup, skin diseases etc. and also as food supplement. The objective of the present study was to do physicochemical analysis of Chandrashoor (Lepidium sativum Linn.) seeds. The physicochemical analysis help in detecting the purity and quality of the drug. The air dried powdered plant material was subjected to analytical procedures for determination of physicochemical standardization like Total ash value, Water soluble ash, Acid insoluble ash etc.

Keywords: Standardization, pharmacognostic study, physicochemical study, Lepidium sativum Linn., Garden cress.
