Ajeet Kumar and Dr. Rajesh KumarAbstract:
Herbal formulations are the need of the day for better acceptance of Herbalmedicine. And herbal formulations have growing demand in the world market and the plants have been reported in the literature having good anti-diabetic, anti-microbial, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Diabetes mellitus (DM), insulin-dependent DM (IDDM) and non-insulin dependent DM (NIDDM) is a common and serious metabolic disorder throughout the world. Traditional plant treatments have been used throughout the world for the therapy of diabetes mellitus. Among many medications and polyherbal plants, several herbs have been known to cure and control diabetes; additionally they have no side effects. In this study vati was formulated based on the anti-diabetic potential of herbals and its evaluation. Vati is a herbal formulation containing Giloy (Tinospora Cordifolia), Neem (Azadirachta Indica), Chirayata (Swertia Chirata), Gurmar (Gymnema Sylvestre), Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera), Gokshura (Tribulus Terrestris), Haritaki Chhoti (Terminalia Chebula), Bahera (Terminalia Bellirica), Amla (Emblica Officinalis), Bilva (Aegle Marmelos), Kachur (Curcuma Zedoaria), Vasaka (Adhatoda Vasica), Haldi (Curcuma Longa) Kutki (Picrorhiza Kurroa), Jamun (Syzygium Cumini) Shuddha Shilajit (Asphaltum), Karela (Momordica Charantia), Methi (Trigonella foenum-graecum), Malabar tree (Pterocarpus Marsupium) widely used in treatment of diabetes. The present study was taken up to scientifically evaluate the various physicochemical parameters to standardize the formulation. To evaluate various physicochemical parameters including ash values, moisture content, extractive values, chemical test, microscopy thin layer chromatography (TLC) for standardization of VatiIngredients were identified. Physicochemical standards were loss on drying, pH, ash values, extractive values documented. Qualitative chemical tests designated the presence of alkaloid, glycoside, tannins, and steroids.Pages: 30-37 | Views: 108 | Downloads: 58Download Full Article: Click Here
