Aragwadharishtam is an Ayurvedic preparation used mainly to detoxify the body. Its main use is in the cure of skin diseases, ulcers and piles. The present study deals with the GC MS analysis of Aragwadharishtam to know the presence of phytochemicals present in this medicine. The GC MS profile indicated the presence of some very important molecules such as Phnylethyl alcohol, Ethyl hydrogen succinate, Butanedioic acid diethyl ester, 4Ethyl-2-hydroxycyclopent-2-en-1-one, Eugenol, Ethyl gallate, 1, 2, 3-Benzenetriol, Benzeethanol, 4-hydroxy-, Hexadecanoic acid, 2-hydroxy-1-(hydroxymethyl) ethyl ester and Octadecanoic acid, 2, 3-hydroxypropyl ester etc. These molecules have a number of important medicinal roles which could substantiate their participation towards the medicinal activity of Aragwadharishtam as a detoxifying formula as claimed by Ayurveda. However, further work in this direction is warranted to prove the medicinal efficacy of the medicine.
