Abstract

PHYSIOCO-CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF YASHTIMADHU: GLYCYRRHIZA GLABRA

*Vd. Sukhada Joshi, Dr. Shweta Hardas and Dr. Ninad Sathe

ABSTRACT

Time and demand are integral parts of any formulation. In due course of time, demand for phytochemicals of the plant extract increased, which led to cause adulteration and other mal-practices. To avoid these mal-practises, authentication and standardisation became inevitable in the process of preparing formulation. Following study is aimed at authentication and standardisation of one such essential drug - Yashtimadhu. Out of 5 different species, available in Mother Nature, Glycyrrhiza glabra is the most commonly used one. Yashtimadhu possesses multi-dimensional characteristics due to which, it plays vital role in curing various diseases and disease-conditions, and it can also be used in different forms, as choorna, kwath, fanta, ghana. With the help of available material and resources, basic, yet essential physicochemical analyses were done in laboratory which included foreign matter, moisture content, extractive values with alcohol and water as media, total ash percentage, acid insoluble ash percentage, pH. Observed results were compared with authentic texts of Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India. Results led us to the conclusion that the procured samples were authentic and standardised and can be used further in herbal or herbo-mineral formulations.

Keywords: Yashtimadhu, Glycyrrhiza glabra, Physico-chemical analysis, Standardization.
