COMPARATIVE PHARMACEUTICAL- ANALYTICAL STUDY OF BADARASHMA PISHTI W.S.R TO ITS PURIFICATION METHOD
Keywords:Badarashma Pishti, Shodhana, Hajral Yahud, Hajratbera
Abstract - Hajral Yahud -Badarshma (Lips Judaicus, Jew’s stone) is an animal origin fossil obtained from Arabian countries. Even though there is no reference of this drug in Rasa text but later authors after 20th century included Badarashma under Sikata varga dravyas. Aims and objective- To do Basarashma shodhan by four different method. To prepare Basarashma Pishti by classical reference and subject them for analytical test. Methodology-As per the reference Rasamrita, Badarashma Pishti was done. Four samples of Pishties were subjected to analytical parameters along with organoleptic characters. The prepared Pishties were compared by subjecting them to analytical parameters along with organoleptic characters Observations & Results: As per four classical references shodhan of Badarahma was done. As per reference of Rasamrut Badarashma Pishties were prepared. The colour of all four Badarashma Pishties was Greyish white. Moisture content in BP1(0.11%) is less when compared with other 3 Pishties BP3(0.18%), BP4(0.40%), BP2(0.50%). Ash content of is less in BP2(0.35%) when compared with other 3 Pishties BP1 (0.63%), BP4 (0.67%), BP3 (1.83%). Acid insoluble ash is less in BP2 & BP4 (0.53%) when compared with other 2 Pihties BP1(0.89%), BP3(1.59%). Assay of Calcium is more in BP2 (i.e.36.61%) when compared with other 3 Pishties (BP4-35.52%), (BP3-35.43%), (BP1 -32.85%) Conclusion: Moisture content in BP1(0.11%) is less, Ash content of is less in BP2 (0.35%), Acid insoluble ash is less in BP2 & BP4, Assay of Calcium is more in BP2.The chemical analysis and preparation of Badarashma Pishti can be referred and used for further research work.
