Abstract

PHARMACOGNOSTICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL EVALUATION OF SHATAVARYADI CHOORNA – A FORMULATED COMPOUND

Anu M. S.*, L. P. Dei, Harish C. R. and V. J. Shukla

ABSTRACT

Nutritional demands are very high in pregnancy and so food
supplementation in terms of micronutrients is absolutely necessary for
the proper growth and development of the foetus. In India, Maternal
Mortality Rate and Infant Mortality Rate are very high; and are mostly
associated with the deprivation of the nutrition. Shatavaryadi Choorna
(Anubhoot Yoga) is a formulated combination comprises of equal
quantities of powders of Indigenous drugs such as Shatavari, Amalaki,
Guduchi, Bala, Draksha and Arjuna. These drugs possess Rasayana,
Balya, Brimhana, Medhya, Vayastahapana and Prajasthapana
property. Hence this formulation is assumed to be beneficial for the
physical as well as psychological growth and development of foetus
and for the continuation of pregnancy. Till date there is no published
research work available on this formulation. So the present work was carried out to
standardize the Shatavaryadi Choorna in terms of its identity, quality and purity.
Pharmacognostical and physico-chemical observations revealed the specific characters of all
active constituents of the drugs used. The pharmaceutical analysis showed the values; Loss
on drying 8.19%w/w, Water soluble extracts 24.6%w/w, pH 6.5 etc. HPTLC study revealed 9
peaks at 254 nm and 5 peaks at 366 nm wave lengths. This shows the presence of certain definite constituents in the formulation and is helpful for the easy separation of these constituents.

Keywords: HPTLC, Pharmaceutical analysis, Pharmacognosy, Pregnancy, Shatavaryadi Choorna.
