Stress is the most hazardous factor which can adversely affect the quality of life. Ayurvedic Rasayana formulations can be used to relieve stress and there forth improve and maintain healthy quality of life. In the present study, the effect of a classical ayurvedic Rasayana formulation comprising three herbs Gokshura (Tribulus terrestris Linn.), Aamalaki (Emblica officinalis Gaertn.) and Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia Miers.) is assessed on health, wellness and quality of life questionnaire in stress prone patients. Total 108 patients complaining of stress and decreased quality of life were randomly divided into two groups of Rasayana Ghana tablets (RGT) and Placebo group (PG). The drug was given in a dose of two tablets of 500mg twice a day with ghee and honey in unequal proportion. Result was assessed on the parameters given in quality of life questionnaire.  The data was then analyzed by applying Wilcoxon non parametric test in each group and chi-square test to compare efficacy in both groups. RGT seems to be effective in decreasing the physical complaints and improving mental/emotional state, adaptation to stress, life enjoyment and overall quality of life to a significant level in each sub scale.
