How JRK’s 777 oil demolishes the dense, viscous herbal rich oils can be ineffective for psoriasis
The present study deals with the importance of herbal particle size in the AYUSH oil preparations for psoriasis in order to achieve greater absorption and therapeutic value. More often the viscosity of the oil, deep colour and the density of herbal constituents are associated with superior therapeutic value. But our study has clearly demonstrated that the dermal absorbable herbal constituents (under 40 µm) was less than 10% in most of the Wrightia tinctoria based AYUSH oil preparations sold for the treatment of psoriasis in India whereas Dr. JRK’s 777 oil contain more than 60% of the herbal constituents below 40 µm size. Further the role of particle size besides dermal absorption; in the therapeutic value also established by oxygen species scavenging assay. Findings reveal that smaller the particles greater was the antioxidant effect and hence such herbal constituents not only would offer superior therapeutic effect but also protection to the oil from going rancid. Details are presented in the paper.
