Evaluation of formulation variables for Ayurvedic formulation vasavaleha
SLT Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Guru Ghasidas Vishwavidyalaya, Bilaspur (CG)
Formulation variables were developed for Ayurvedic formulation vasavaleha to produce reproducibility of results. Vasavaleha is a semisolid preparation of drugs, prepared with the addition of jaggery or sugar and boiled with prescribed drug juice or decoction and coded VS-1, VS-2 and VS-3. During preparation each step was monitored like total solid content (% v/w) of vasavaleha was found 180.31±2.18, 182.02±4.01 and 183.34±2.97 respectively for VS-1, VS-2 and VS-3 and coefficient of variance was found 2.449 while specific gravity (g/cm3) was estimated as 1.87±0.09, 1.89±0.06 and 1.86±0.05 with coefficient of variance 0.153. Moisture content (%) was found 3.78±0.86, 3.77±0.05 and 3.77±0.68 respectively and coefficient of variance was found 1.452 while loss on drying (% w/w) was estimated as 5.24±0.18, 5.26±0.13 and 5.24±0.16 with coefficient of variance 0.429. Volatile oil content (% v/w) was measured 0.60±0.001, 0.62±0.011 and 0.60±0.013 and 0.0494 coefficient of variance.
