Abstract

Rasa Shastra is the pharmaceutical branch of Ayurveda. As like any other medical system, success of Ayurvedic treatment also depends upon quality of medicine prescribed to the patient. The integral part of Rasa Shastra lies in the successful pharmaceutical process. Rasa oushadis are the potent Ayurvedic preparations mainly containing metals and minerals. These oushadis possess a wide range of therapeutic efficacy and are considered superior because of their qualities like small dose, quick action, palatability and longer shelf life. Mayaphaladi Churna is an important Rasa oushadi described in Rasa Tantra Sara Va Siddha Prayoga Sangraha- Part 2, Streerogadhikara indicated for the management of the diseases Swetapradara and Yonibramsha. The ingredients present in the ‘Mayaphaladi Churna’ are Kukkutanda twak bhasma (Egg Shell Ash), Shuddha Sphatika (Alum), Mayaphala Churna (Quercus Infectoria Oliv.), Amalaki Churna (Emblica Officinalis Gearth), Ashwagandha Churna (Withania Somnifera Linn.) and Sita Churna (Sugar Candy). The main pharmaceutical procedures involved in the preparation of Mayaphaladi Churna are Shodhana, Marana, Churna nirmana and preparation of Mayaphaladi Churna. The specific pharmaceutical blend of these contents can result in a more effective formulation. Therefore the present study has been planned to standardize the method of preparation of Mayaphaladi Churna according to the method explained in the classical literatures.
