The knowledge of the types of biomolecules present in Ayurvedic medicines can help in understanding the underlying mechanism of action of such medicines. This type of study is very pertinent and being sought after in the present day medical scenario, which needs newer and better approaches of treatment. The present study deals with the GC MS analysis of one such Ayurvedic medicine, Amritarishtam, which is used for the treatment of all types of fevers. The medicines was procured from standard Ayurvedic vendor at Chennai and subjected to GC MS analysis after following proper procedures. The GC MS profile indicated the presence of 12 biomolecules, such as, Phenylethyl Alcohol, Ethyl Hydrogen Succinate, 5-Hydroxymethylfurfural, Thymol, Ethanone, 1-(2hydroxy-4-methoxyphenyl)-, Hexadecanoic acid, 2-hydroxy-1-(hydroxymethyl)ethyl ester and Ocatadecanoic acid, 2, 3-dihyroxypropyl ester which have medicinal values relating to that of Amritarishtam. Further work to isolate the molecules and understand their role is in process.
