Abstract

 Triphalaadi yoga is a combination of eleven dried herbs i.e. Haritaki, Bibhitaki, Amalaki, Yastimadhu, Gokshura, Guduchi, Haridra, Daruharidra, Shunthi, Tulsi and Punarnava in powder form which is administered as a rasayana therapy in patients of CVS. These eleven drugs chosen for this study is an Anubhoota yoga from the Shalakya Tantra Department of I.P.G.T& R.A, Jamnagar and has the solid backing of previous researches for their most important individual activities. The body is made up of Panchamahabhuta so the plants from which Ayurvedic drugs are extracted. In the present study author try to evaluate how the composition of Panchamahabhuta changes before and after the Bhavna of the drug with the help of the pharmacognostical parameters like acicular crystals of Punarnava which are rarely found after the Bhavna of the drug and and also evaluate the differences in the pharmaceutical profile before and after Bhavna like loss on drying, ash value, acid insoluble ash, water soluble extract, methanol soluble extract, pH and HPTLC.
