ABSTRACT

In ayurvedic system of treatment, churnas are as good as are asavas and arishtas for the eradication of diseases. As a part of evaluation, Dabur and Baidhyanath brands properties of Sitopladi churna were tested for relevant organoleptic, physiochemical, micromeretics and fluorescence properties. The Dabur formulation is more elegant in colour, odor and in taste. Moisture content of both formulations was found within pharmacopoeial limit. In the present study, Dabur churna emitted white and Baidhyanath emitted off white fluorescence under day light, in short UV light and in long UV light. The micromeretic parameters (bulk density, tap density, angle of repose & Carr’s index) were checked to determine its flow property; both formulations were found with good flow. Preliminary phytochemical screening indicated presence of saponins, tannins, alkaloids, flavnoids and phenolics. The results were found in close proximity for both brands. This study on Sitopladi churna was reproducible, precise and may be considered as a method for its quality control.
