ABSTRACT
This present study deals with pharmacognostic and analytical study of Dashanga Kwatha (A known Ayurvedic formulation used in Non Ulcer Dyspepsia). Here attempt was made to find out the authenticity of the drugs used in the formulation. This forms the first step in the standardization of a formulation. Herbal drugs, singularly or in combinations, contain numerous compounds in complex matrices in which no single active constituent is responsible for the overall efficacy. The pharmacognostic investigations were carried out in terms of organoleptic, microscopic, macroscopic examinations and the analytical study was carried in terms of physicochemical, phytochemical analysis and HPTLC examination by optimizing the solvent systems. Microbial load of dried powder material was determined to avoid the contamination and for safety of crude drug. The present work will provide referential information for the correct identification and standardization of the crude drug and will ensure the use of only genuine and uniform material in preparation of Dashanga Kwatha in future. These findings will be useful in establishing quality control standards and standardization of Dashanga Kwatha in future.
