Abstract

Ayurvedic medicine Kutajastaka Pravahi Kvatha, known to be effective in Daha (burning sensation); Raktatisara (Diarrhoea with blood); Sula (pain); Amadosa; (products of impaired digestion and metabolism) and Sarvatisara (all types of diarrhoea), has been standardized by following modern scientific quality control procedures for the finished product. The results of physico-chemical parameters viz. specific gravity (1.01), total solids (4.45%) and pH (4.50) were found. Microbiological limit test and heavy metals Pb, Cd, As, Hg were also found within the limits set by Ayurvedic Pharmacopiea of India (API). The obtained values can be adapted to lay down new pharmacopoeial standards with batch to batch consistency. The phytochemical constituents found in the raw material used for the preparation of Kutajastaka Pravahi Kvatha facilitate the desirable therapeutic efficacy of the medicinal formulations a whole in elements and also could help in understanding the underlying mechanism of pharmacological action.
