Abstract

Today most of the non-communicable diseases have higher prevalence. Sthaulya (obesity or overweight) is one of them. This disorder has constituted a most important epidemic in the initial decades of the 21st century. Taking into consideration this fact a randomized clinical study was carried out with an aim to study the clinical efficacy of “Bilvadi Panchmool Ghanvati†in the management of Sthaulya (obesity). Amongst these, 15 patients were treated with Bilvadi Panchmool Ghanvati compound in the dose of 2 gram (4 tablets of 500 mg) 3 times a day with Madhudak before meal. The duration of treatment was 8 weeks with follow‑up for 4 weeks after the completion of treatment. Analysis of the overall effects showed that Bilvadi Panchmool Ghanvati provided marked reduction in weight, body mass index, and other signs and symptoms in patients of Sthaulya .
