Most of the traditional systems of medicines are effective but the need is just to validate them to assess the identity, purity and quality of the drugs. In this direction a polyherbomineral Ayurvedic formulation, Panchachurnam used in constipation and piles was taken for standardisation. Panchachurnam is the composition of Cassia angustifolia Vahl. leaf, Terminalia chebula Retz. fruit, Zingiber officinale Rosc. rhizome, Foeniculum vulgare Mill. fruit and Saindhava lavana. Panchachurnam was prepared as per Ayurvedic Formulary of India. In-house preparation and three marketed preparations have been standardised on the basis of organoleptic, microscopic, physical and physicochemical characteristics. The set parameters were found to be simple to evaluate the churna and can be used as reference standards for the quality control/quality assurance of a Polyherbal powder formulation.
