AN EVALUATION OF DARVYADI LOHA W.S.R TO ITS ANALYTICAL PARAMETERS AND PHYTOCHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS
Keywords:Darvyadi Loha, Standardization, physicochemical parameters, phytochemical evaluation, Pandu Roga
Iron is one of the chief metals which is available plentifully and which is very much indispensable for the normal sustenance of the body. We get various references of Lauha Kalpanas in classics which can be recommended as iron supplements in Iron deficiency anaemia. On analysing the method of preparation of these Kalpanas , one can understand that Lauha Kalpanas are iron containing formulations administered in a better acceptable form and with increased bioavailability.Darvyadi Loha is one such reference mentioned in Rasendra Sara Sangraha in which the main ingredients are Daarvi, Amalakki, Vibhitaki, Haritaki, Pippali, Maricha, Shunti, Vidanga and Lohabhasma. Most of the modern hematinics usually induce some adverse drug reactions whereas Lauha Kalpana are formulated in such a way that it has seldom any adverse drug reactions associated with it on administration. Hence, it is the need of the hour to critically analyse the formulations and with the aid of various standardisation parameters in order to comprehend the safety profile Hence, the current study aims at standardisation of Darvyadi Loha as per physicochemical parameters as well as phytochemical evaluation.
